    Today I’m taking the world’s most luxurious sleeper train, The Venice Simplon Orient Express, from Paris all the way to Istanbul. I’ll share with you exactly what the experience is like, from my private room, the three restaurant cars, along with all the luxurious amenities offered onboard. This is a train like no other, steeped in grandeur, history and style.
    Run once a year, The Venice Simplon Orient Express will take us through 8 countries with various local excursions along the way. It also happens to be the world’s most expensive train ticket, with prices starting at over $50,000! As always, I paid in full myself for this experience so I can show you exactly what it’s like.

    That refund is incredible. Yes, I could see the problem with the air conditioning not working and waiting a few hours for another locomotive, but the line closure was not the Orient Express' fault. Still, this is terrific customer service on their part and well done to them.😊

    I really feel for all the staff its a once a year trip they probably all look forward too and it would have been an organisational nightmare for them. That said I am so impressed with how well they managed it. I have always said this would be my 'if I won the lottery' trip. Fabulous report.

    First, let me say that that was an incredible journey to watch. The Orient express has been on my bucket list since I was 14 or 15 years of age and I am now 54. I know that I likely will never be able to afford this trip for myself and my wife to take, so watching you and your wife take it was wonderful. I was heartbroken at your two missed elements due to circumstances out of their control. When you told us that you got a full refund because of that, I actually teared up because knowing how expensive that was and they were willing to just write that off for all 90 passengers is incredible. Though my wife and I have recently started to travel, this one will most likely have to be vicarious through you and your wife. So thank you!

    I feel like this video/trip is on another level compared to last year's trip! I know Budapest would have been inviting, but I think it's pretty awesome you got to spend the day in that ski town because of the landslide. So long as you don't have obligations at the end destination (Istanbul), I think the delays make the trip even more fun. Going with the flow on the rails!
    You both look great, and thanks for taking the time to make this content!!

    This is a truly dreamy trip. Such great cinematography on the fly. I'm loving your pronunciation of "Lichtenstein" as "Litch-enstein" as in, well, "Quidditch." And "Le Toilette du Nord" doesn't sound like a restaurant, but L'etoile Du Nord does. Our differences are the spaces where we can come together. Keep up the good travel writing/vlogging!

    I've seen other vloggers share their Orient Express experience however yours's seems more intimate. Even with all the hiccups, delays and operational issues it still seemed like a wonderful trip. The fact that Belmont Organization (LVMH) offered an full refund is quite impressive. Now, how to finance the ensuite cabin?!

    Really excellent video - full of information and details. What an absolutely incredible journey - the luxury, attention to detail, quality of food/drinks, improvisation during delays, firiendliness of the staff (waiting on the platform each time you reboard), fun of the entertainment....it's magical. The price is jaw-dropping but I guess some of that is to keep guests happy during the unexpected delays (getting 90 passengers in for lunch - that's quite an achievement!).

      My wife and I were on the same trip (even staying in Car A with Will and Millie). The inconveniences for the staff ranged from minor to I would guess fairly rough at some points.
      And we left wondering if phenomenal was sufficiently complimentary. The entire staff on the trip was amazing, outstandingly, above and beyondly, magnificantly (etc-ierly) phenomenal. The beauty of the train is sublime. But even so, the staff was better.

Well done to the company and to Will and Millie for "roughing it" on our behalf.

    We had 2 journeys on the restored Orient Express back in the 1980's. The first was London -Paris, and a few years later we did Paris-London. Both trips were very pleasant, but we were glad we had decided not to do the overnight sections as the plumbing then was pretty basic - it bore no comparison to a couple of trips we did on the Indian Pacific. We were very glad to have chosen the Orient Express to have done the Paris-London journey, which was out of the ordinary. There was a severe storm in the Channel and the train were diverted to different Channel ports, both in France and then in the UK. We did not have to worry about organising these changes, just sit back and order another pot of tea.
    There's luxury, and then there's luxury. The restored train does it in 1920's fashion, and does that very well indeed. Service and food was excellent. On the Indian Pacific, you got good food and service, along with modern plumbing and ride.

    • Anders Grassman
      Anders Grassman 2 місяці тому

      Dear Sir, could you elaborate on the "On the Indian Pacific, you got good food and service, along with modern plumbing and ride", as I'm not indigenous to the subtleties of Anglo-Saxon communications? Could you try to clarify your perceived qualities of th Indian Pacific travel?

    • DoubleDee
      DoubleDee 2 місяці тому +4

      I started a reply but it has somehow got lost. The double compartments of the Indian Pacific give you a private cabin. The back of the sofa folds down to give a single bed while there is an upper single bed as well. Each double bedroom has its own private bathroom with shower and wc. I can't now be sure if the handbasin was in the bathroom or if it were in the cabin itself. I think it was in the cabin. By contrast, you had to go to the end of the coaches on the Orient Express to have a wc, shared with the other passengers. My memory is that there was no shower for passengers, shared or not. Having your own shower and wc was what I meant by modern plumbing. The modern ride comes from advances in springing and suspension generally from the days when the Orient Express was new. The suspension may well have been updated since we last travelled on the OE.
      Of course, the Indian Pacific coaches don't have the woodwork or elaborate upholstery of those in the Orient Express. I prefer to have my own bathroom including a shower to 1920's furnishing details. Others may well make different choices.@Anders Grassman

      @DoubleDee Thank you for answering. My wife put us on the Singapore-Bankook back int the 90's for part of our honey moon, as she kwows I'm a train fanatic.😁
      I really think this type of train travel ought to be offered as an alternative to ship cruises. to a much wider public, and at all price ranges!
      Once I was a poor (well...) teenager, travelling major European cities, once actually sleeping in the overhead piecemeal luggage nettrays in a cabin. That one is THE singularily outstandingly most uncomfortable trainride of my life! Not sure even what country I woke up in. Woke up smiling though!
      I think we should make the advantegerous, uncomftorbable and maybee somewhat dangerous travels when we are young. Yoy know, it's great fun knowing you took part in a discussion on whether to allow goats (!) on the train in Italy. And a couple of decades later you enjoy insane nice luxury train travel. That actually makes a detour to watch the acctual "Bridge on the Riwer Kwai". (Beeing slightly upper class, my tip is always bring decent linen suits. They wear well also when creased. When things go completely awry, which they surprisingly often do, I find it very comforting to wear decent apparel.

Being a lover of train travel, The Orient Express has been on my "wish to-do list" since I was a kid. Unlikely ever to do the journey from Paris to Istanbul though, because costly. Many other less expensive options for us to go on adventures. But a big thank you for producing such a lovely film.

      My wife and I were on this same trip. Earlier in the trip, the AC on the train was not keeping up.
      I'm pretty certain that every time we entered a new country (which was often on this trip) the train engine was swapped for an engine from that country's train service.
      Unfortunately the Bulgarian train engine failed (I guess) quite quickly. So we further delayed, waiting in the heat without any AC. This caused the train interior to cook. My wife and I took a siesta (I suppose) to avoid the worst of the heat.
      A new train engine showed up and we got back on our way. But this delay put us many hours behind schedule and we missed nearly the entire time allotted for our beach side stay in Varna. That was quite disappointing because the resort at Varna looked to be absolutely lovely.
      The "fun" part of this section of the trip was when we did arrive in the Varna station (remember, many hours late). There was still a huge crowd of people at the station to greet us and the train. It almost felt like a crowd of paparazzi.

    Since the price of a trip like this is for the ordinary person extremely expensive (even though you get incredible value for money food and drink wise including excellent service) I am still amazed in the end when they offer to reimburse you the FULL cost of the trip or give you 130% credit value towards all their offerings and trips. THAT is something that also tells even though it is super expensive this is how they take care of their customers. Great video as always and looking forward to your next adventure.

    "36 minutes? I'll watch the first 10 minutes..." As always, 36 indulgent and wonderfully entertaining minutes later, he I am at the end of the video. A testament to your skills Mr D. I still cannot quite believe you ended up getting the trip for free, what a result! Anyway, thanks again for another brilliant video. All the best to you and the lovely Millie.

      My wife and I were on this same trip, even staying in Car A with Will and Millie (we didn't know who they were until almost the very end of the trip).
      We received the exact same compensation offer from Belmond. And I can assure you we are not famous.
      But this action is what outstanding organizations do. Fix it in real time (like they did with accommodating the delay with the avalanche) or if you cannot fix it during the trip, make compensation after the trip as much as possible. We felt the offer from Belmond was above and beyond.

    Thank you Will and (radiant) Millie for a wonderful tour. We just watched Murder on The Orient Express (1974 version) a few weeks ago. You both definitely had a nice room than the movie version. Maybe for fun you should watch it sometime to compare? Again, thank you for taking the time to film, edit, and share with all of us.

    Nice trip and nice video, as always😍 Glad to see you've been in my country, Romania. I know our railways are not the best in Europe, but I hope you enjoyed a good time in Sinaia and Bucharest❤ Have fun in Istanbul and I can't wait to see your next video and your next destination. Keep up the good work👍 Greetings from Romania.

      My wife and I were on this trip also. We found Romania very beautiful. Sinaia and Peles castle were absolutely wonderful. To learn that the first Orient Express stopped at Peles castle King Carol's requested was extremely fun.
      To Americans, like us, 200 years is "old". To visit areas and meet people that live with buildings and cultures that are many time older is very rewarding. Greetings from Michigan in the United States.

    Your luxury train videos are my absolute favorite! I subscribed the moment I saw your Orient Express videos-major Agatha Christie fan! 😁Might you be interested in trying out the luxury train line that (last century) used to be called the Blue Train and ran along the French Riviera? I thought I read that this line would resume sometime soon after being out of commission for a number of years?

    Stunning train cars! The inlaid wood, the plush upholstery on the furnishings, the opulence of the dining cars. Wow! Thanks for sharing this experience.
    One thing I was surprised by though...the "American Style Lobster". I've never come across lobster here in the US that was served with...gravy (or do you call it brown sauce?). Lobster is served with drawn butter. Have I just missed this in my lobster experience? Any other Americans who've had gravy poured atop your lobster tail?

    Hi Will - that old orient express ticket looks like it was a relative of mine. For context - Chevalier/Cavalier has been researched back (of what is known so far) to 4 brothers in 1604 in Normandy, France. Since then various generations (23 generations have been researched) and the family have spread mainly to the UK, NZ, Australia, and of course, still in France. There is even a Chevalier/Cavalier family shield….

    This looks like such a unique experience and you made us feel like we were with you on board. Really like your storytelling on- and off-camera. Also, Millie looks fantastic and her outfits are all so well put together! Maybe you can do a „what to bring on a sleeper train“ video.

    Too bad you missed some extra time in Budapest -- it's GORGEOUS! One of my favourite cities, as well as Prague!

    • Jeff White
      Jeff White 2 місяці тому +1

      My wife and I were on this same trip. The loss of the time to visit Budapest was probably our biggest disappointment of the whole trip.
      The good news? What we were able to see of Budapest ensures we will go back some. Probably quite soon.
