“The murderer is with us—on the train now….”― Agatha Christie, Murder on the Orient Express
There is not a crime that Hercule Poirot cannot solve—or so we’ve been led to believe when reading the marvelous novels of the queen of crime, Agatha Christie. But what if the famous Belgian detective weren’t there? Would you be able to unravel the mystery of the murder that was committed on board the Blue Train before it reaches its destination in the Côte d’Azur?
Dressed in 1920s period costume, join your fellow passengers over breakfast at the legendary restaurant Le Train Bleu, then set off from Paris Gare de Lyon on board the historic Orient Express train for your unforgettable adventure. From the moment you board—or even before you board—you’ll need to start looking for clues to solve the mystery while you mix and mingle with other passengers, trying to identify the guilty one. While you’re playing Poirot, you’ll be treated to the best of French cuisine, starting with a gastronomic five-course Burgundian lunch, paired with fine wines. A late-afternoon tea leads into an evening of jazz and a 1920s-inspired Provençal dinner, followed by a Champagne cocktail during which the mystery of the Blue Train will be revealed….
Enjoy this extraordinary day as a standalone experience, or enhance it with your choice of additional VIP options, from a pre-travel costume fitting with a renowned French costumer and transfers in period vehicles to luxury accommodation at exclusive hotels in Paris and the on French Riviera.
