Golden Eagle Luxury Trains is the world’s leading operator of exclusive, long-distance rail tours, which offers discerning and adventurous travellers a unique opportunity to visit some of the world’s most memorable places in comfort and style. Golden Eagle Luxury Trains are taking over the operation of the Danube Express for 2015 and beyond. The Golden Eagle Danube Express is the first ever European private train to be permitted to enter into Iran. Jewels of Persia is a truly unique journey. Travelling from Budapest on the banks of the Danube, via the shores of the Bosphorus and the city of Istanbul, into the ancient land of Persia, Jewels of Persia is a unique journey that takes in destinations rarely experienced by the Western visitor.
This remarkable tour will appeal to those with a distinctive sense of adventure who seek extraordinary travel experiences that may not always follow the itinerary step-by-step, but will provide endless excitement throughout the journey.
The Danube Express only carries 50 passengers, serving freshly prepared meals using traditional menus and served at a single sitting in the elegant Restaurant car. The Lounge enables you to enjoy relaxing drinks, and whilst dinner is served, your cabin is transformed into a cosy sleeping area. A final touch, your Sleeping Car attendant is on hand to bring early morning tea or coffee and perhaps later, a glass of wine.
