The Orient Express...you have heard it many times. The romance, the mystery, the adventure! Of course with the opulence too!
This trip brings back the romance and adventure of train travel, along with the mystery of new cities and countries. Brought back in a special way; adding value and removing inflated expense of excessive opulence by replacing it with service and contemporary refinement. The Original Orient Express no longer exists, but this journey will mirror elements of the original route from Paris to Istanbul. We are re-creating the experience using modern trains and conveniences.

In addition, many other options and extras are included.
The Orient Express was long-distance passenger train service that began in 1883 with the original endpoints being Paris to Istanbul. The original name became synonymous with intrigue and was a showcase of luxury with comfort at a time when traveling was still rough and dangerous. The original Orient Express is but a memory. And we are bringing back the best parts.
EVERY aspect of this trip is epic. Visit picturesque and storied cities. Enjoy four night trains and experience the enchantment of the rails. We are even staying in the original destination of Pera Palace Hotel in Istanbul built in 1882 with it's grandeur and opulence.

During the event you'll get to see all of the other participants via video. The event host will then pair you off into smaller teams and you'll be playing as a team against the other groups. You're welcome to join with friends or sign up alone and we'll put you on a team. Typically about 65% of the crowd signs up on their own so don't worry if you're by yourself!
