Maharajas Express Booking

The Most Popular Train Journey in India

It’s not just the amazing Indian tourist attractions and destinations showcased during the itineraries that make travelling on Maharajas’ Express the most popular train journey in India. Furnished from top to bottom in elegant decor, the interior of the luxury train is reminiscent of a 5-star hotel or even a palace. The comparison is even more uncanny when you look at the sheer amount of facilities and services available, most of it included in the fees. These factors have helped us gain worldwide recognition and awards, which again add to our renown.

Destinations & Itineraries

Currently, four Indian rail holiday packages are featured on our website, each designed to showcase not just the spectacular monuments of India but also the country’s art, history, culture and natural beauty. 

The journeys mostly cover cities of Rajasthan, known for their old-world and regal charm. You get to see various forts and palaces of the bygone era in their splendour. Barbecue and folk performances at sand dunes in Bikaner are also part of some journeys. A game drive through the Ranthambore Forest is included on all journeys, giving you the chance to view India’s rich wildlife.

Agra is covered in all our royal Indian train journeys because one does not travel to India and not witness the Taj Mahal, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Fatehpur Sikri, Khajuraho and Orchha are covered in some itineraries for their unique architecture while Varanasi is covered in The Indian Panorama for its breathtaking sights, especially the evening Ganga Aarti ritual.
