Hopefully, all crime on the Orient Express is reserved to the movies because Al Roker’s on board!

The Today host joined Josh Gad – one of the stars of the upcoming Murder on the Orient Express remake – for an actual trip on the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, which is currently headed from Italy to Paris.

Roker told Today viewers the trip was a “once-in-a-lifetime tour,” and their live broadcast was the first aboard the luxury train in history.

“We’re sitting at a bar, on a moving train going through Italy right now, it doesn’t get better,” Gad said.

The film – which is a Sir Kenneth Branagh adaptation of Agatha Christie’s classic thriller – also stars Johnny Depp, Daisy Ridley, Michelle Pfeiffer, Dame Judi Dench, Leslie Odom Jr. and Penelope Cruz.

Both Roker and Gad have been documenting their trip on social media.
