The Experience


An American Orient Express vacation is first class, with exquisite fine dining, deluxe accommodations, and our in-depth cultural enrichment programs. The train's signature blue-and-gold rail carriages feature elegant lounge and dining cars, a dome observation car, and comfortable sleeping cabins. The interior is furnished in mahogany and brass, with rich upholstery. Our vintage train cars are an authentic slice of Americana, gliding over bridges and through tunnels in comfort and style.

Your vacation is carefree and efficient. Enjoy a series of deluxe rail trips, from pristine national parks to vibrant metropolitan centers, without packing and unpacking luggage, navigating unknown roads, and searching for restaurants and hotels. Your time is free, while our professionals operate the train and handle arrangements.




True to the golden age of rail, the 1940s and '50s, life on board is relaxed. Sip a cocktail in the lounge car, read in the library, gain a tree-top perspective of the landscape from the dome car or joni new friends around the piano. Or simply relax in your cabin, watch the scenery change from your private onboard accommodations and listen to the rhythm of the rails.

Participate in everything the American Orient Express offers, or do absolutely nothing - you are free to choose. In essence, the journey is the destination aboard the American Orient Express. Just being here is enough.
