The most luxurious tourist trains in the world

There is a special category of travelers who prefer rail. Even nowadays, when aviation has become widely available, luxury rail travel is still popular. Special comfortable trains with luxurious interiors carry travelers along the most interesting routes, combining luxurious accommodation in the train itself with overnight stays in luxury hotels, exclusive excursions and even cruises.

When compiling the rating, which included 11 VIP trains, besides the ratings of Western Internet portals, such parameters as the route length, its novelty, the cost of the trip, the range of services provided to passengers and the number of attractions that a tourist can visit during the trip were taken into account.
