“The Maharajas’ Express has a fascinating choice of destinations which span the corners of this exotic land. Agra, in particular is a sight to behold, and the Taj Mahal is just the beginning. The return from the spectacular visit to the Taj offers you the opportunity to explore the Pietra Dura inlay work which is native to the region. The visit to Itmad-Ud-Daula is highly recommended. Fatehpur Sikhri lies just outside Agra and mesmerizes as it informs.

The Taj Mahal in Agra is unparalleled in its appeal & no journey to India is ever complete without a visit to this majestic mausoleum. This requiem of love will be eternally etched in your memory with the Maharajas’ Experience.

The journey to Agra is the highlight of The Gems of India tour package. The morning visit to Taj Mahal is followed by a champagne breakfast at the Taj Khema. No words suffice to describe the beauty of the Taj Mahal and this paradisical experience speaks for itself. Its magnetic presence on the banks of the Yamuna creates a poetry that entices hordes of visitors to its doorstep. The pristine white marble inlaid with the finest gems challenge eternity. We will leave you to savour this feast for the eyes with the Maharajas’ Express.

The Treasures of India Journey offers a tantalizing view of the Taj at 2.30 in the afternoon. Bathed in the afternoon sun it is a peon to chastity. The purity of this vision will cleanse the soul. The Indian Panorama Journey will give you a vision of this bejewelled splendour bathed in morning dew, around 7 in the morning, as does the Indian Splendours Journey. Combined with the Gems of india package, these early morning views of the Taj are breathtaking.

The beauty of the Taj is encapsulated in the timeless moments of this Maharajas’ Express expedition and theres much more to this experience that can only be acquired by undertaking this journey.”
