The Maharajas’ Experience: Exclusive Luxury Journeys in India

Two words that define the Maharajas’ Express journey are exclusivity and luxury. Cocooned in an aura of wealth and finery, it transports travellers to a magical world that once belonged to India’s erstwhile royalty. If you have been on the lookout for a dreamy escape where you can forget all your worries and simply enjoy the finest things life has to offer, then the Maharajas’ experience is just what you need. With four bespoke journeys that take travellers to the heart and soul of India, this train brings together the best of adventure and exciting discoveries. From participating in Ganga aarti in the holy city of Varanasi to admiring the ethereal beauty of the Taj Mahal in Agra, this train journey gives tourists the perfect opportunity to experience real India like never before! Here is what makes the Maharajas’ experience worth your while.

  • Unmatched Luxury: When it comes to providing luxury and comforts to guests, the Maharajas’ Express team leaves no stone unturned. Boasting of swanky and spacious cabins that are well-equipped with all modern amenities, the train is designed to pamper and impress. Inspired by royal palaces and fairy-tale castles, the train is bathed in resplendent colours and decorated with elegant furnishings. Once a guest steps aboard the train, everything is taken care of by the expert team.
  • Warm Hospitality: From the minute you reach the railway station to start this beautiful journey to the final goodbye, you will be greeted by warm smiles and hearty namastes! Welcoming guests in the best manner possible is a part of Indian culture and tradition. Every Maharajas’ Express guest is given the opportunity to experience this first hand. A welcome with flower garlands, instrumental music and red carpet sets the tone for the rest of the journey.
  • Great Exclusivity: Being one of the most expensive trains in India, The Maharajas’ Express by IRCTC is undoubtedly a very exclusive train. While there are not many exclusive luxury journeys in India, The Maharajas’ Express with its world-class services and sheer grandeur has created a different niche for itself. Perhaps, this is why the train has received so much love and recognition over the years despite being the costliest train ticket in India. It is a one-of-a-kind train that offers a none-of-its-kind journey.
