Day Excursion on the Orient-Express for Two
We boarded the train and were given a peach belini drink, the train started and later the breakfast was served. Very good and very comfortable. We pulled into Chichester station after a very good journey and boarded a coach that took us to Chatsworth House. We had a tour around the house and spent the afternoon in the grounds which are magnificent. Back to the train and once on board and under way were given a glass of champers. The 5 course dinner was served later on the journey home back to London. We could not fault anything, the service was impeccable and we were looked after like royalty. A brilliant 60th birthday celebration for me and my partner, she thoroughly enjoyed it.

A truly perfect day
My husband was given this as a 60th birthday gift. Fortunately as his wife i went too. We had the most wonderful day. The attention from the staff was first class and from the moment we were shown are seats. The food was just the best.. So much of it but spaced out so we didn't feel over full. We stopped at York where we had a guided tour of the Minster. Then enough time to just browse. We would fully recommend this as a special gift or just as a extravagant treat if affordable.

A lifetime experience that I could not forget.
For train lover or anyone interested in times gone by, this is, in my opinion an experience well worth the money. I feel it is a day of indulgence, wonderful food, wonderful carriages, great staff.
A day we will always cherish as purchased by our son and daughter for an anniversary treat. It was all I hoped it would be. Can 't say enough to express my delight with this trip. I did think expensive when I found out the cost, but would pay for this again myself. Hope to save for another trip on the Orient Express in the not too distant future..
