Maharajas Express

Evoking the era of the British Raj, this ‘hotel’ train is a fabulously luxurious way to discover some of the highlights of Rajasthan. There are currently four different itineraries namely ‘Heritage of India’, ‘Treasures of India’, ‘The Indian Panorama’ and ‘The Indian Splendour’.

Among the places visited for excursions are the palace cities of Udaipur, Jodhpur, Bikaner, Gwalior and Jaipur, Agra for the Taj Mahal, and the reserve at Ranthambore for tiger safaris. One tour strays into Uttar Pradesh for Varanasi and Lucknow. Musicians and dancers are often laid on at stops.

It’s a journey for those who want to see the best of India’s ‘Golden Triangle’ in cocooned comfort, and to experience it in true British Raj style.
