Quote from a Client: "Let me rhapsodize! We have been on 10 luxury trains and this is, by far, the roomiest and comfortable of them all. The beautiful sinks alone are worth a sightseeing tour (each one different). The bathroom is large and a joy. The closet is even bigger than most. The food is brought onto the train by different chefs each day. They are always beautifully presented and delicious. We had a translator, sometimes two, always at our side on the sightseeing times."
