A Luxury Experience On The Maharajas’ Express Train

This unique, luxury train will allow you to explore India in style, on a rail holiday truly unlike any other. Boasting two fine dining restaurants, cabins with panoramic windows and opulent décor throughout that offers a chance to rediscover a bygone era, there’s nothing as memorable as a journey aboard the legendary Maharajas’ Express.

This particular train has myriad awards under its belt, including numerous World Travel Awards won for seven consecutive years, and it offers modern facilities such as WiFi, flat screen plasma TVs and an intercom system. The 14 guest carriages are each named after precious stones, such as diamond and pearl, and the styling on board is unparalleled, with semi-precious stones used for decoration along with rich carpeting and linen tapestry.

The two on-board restaurants are a delight, offering a true taste of luxury train travel. The first of the two is named Mayur Mahal, while the second is called Rang Mahal. Both dining cars serve international cuisine as well as delicious Indian dishes, and there are spectacular views from the panoramic windows to enjoy as you dine.

As this train offers a luxurious experience, there is a dress code on board. Guests are expected to wear smart casual during the day time and formal wear for dinners, but there is more information available on the official Maharajas’ Express website. You may also be interested to know that there is even a high-end boutique on board, where you can purchase gifts and souvenirs.

We have two tours on offer that travel on this iconic train, one of which explores the Golden Triangle and sites that include the Taj Mahal, Jaipur’s Amber Fort and the Ranthambore National Park, and the other that features visits to Rambagh Palace, the hilltop Mehrangarh Fort with its intricate carvings and Sunder Nursery, whose gardens contain over 300 types of trees and plants.
