Fairy Queen Tours, Rajasthan

Fairy Queen A Journey Back Into Time
What is the best way to learn about heritage then traveling with it? The Indian Railways are the best option a tourist can ever have while traveling within India to get to know the cultural diversity of the country. Just like special trains like the Palace on Wheels and The Royal Orient, the Fairy Queen is another train whose journey one won't easily forget.

Fairy Queen is the oldest running vintage steam locomotive in the world and was built in the year 1855 by the British firm Kinston, Thompson & Hewitson for the British firm East India Railways. This train has got only a first class chair car having 50 seats and a pantry car for on board catering. A Guinness Book of World Records holder and winner of the National Tourism Award, this pristine beauty rolled again on 1st February 1997 from Delhi, after a gap of 142 years.

A MEMORABLE & EXCITING JOURNEY
Indian tourism department has tried its level best to present the tourist with a time of their life while travelling in Fairy Queen and the attractions that come with the tour package is certainly hard to resist. First stop is the picturesque town of Alwar in Rajasthan on the day when it departs from Delhi. After departing from Alwar the guests are taken to the Sariska Tiger Reserve for an over night stay. Accommodation provisions are done at the Heritage hotel Sariska Palace and for entertainment there are traditional cultural programmes and last but not the least Jeep Safari in the Tiger Sanctuary. Sounds interesting isn't it!
