Explore Europe Aboard the Luxurious Orient Express
Congratulations to our winner!
what you'll do
The Venice Simplon-Orient-Express runs once a year from France to Turkey—and now you’re one of the few people to come aboard! This is much more than a trip across Europe. The restored 1920s carriages are also transporting you back to the Golden Age of Travel. Grab a friend, pack your bags and get ready to embark on this classic journey starting in Paris and traveling along the original route to Istanbul. It’ll begin with you passing through France, Switzerland and Austria while taking in the stunning scenery from your luxurious cabin. As the rail voyage continues, you’ll enjoy private guided tours in Hungary, explore castles in Romania and savor the beautiful countryside of Bulgaria. And don’t forget the daily gourmet meals of local specialties. Between nights in your elegant cabin (complete with personal steward service) and grand European hotels, this will truly be the experience of a lifetime. Flights are on us.

That’s why Omaze is raising funds to ensure all children—including the disadvantaged and disabled—have access to athletic training. By donating to this campaign, you’ll support organizations that send kids to athletic camps so that they can learn how to be successful in both sports and life.
