More about The Maharajas’ Express Train by IRCTC

It is believed that a visit to India offers a glimpse of the world. The kind of diversity one finds in the language, people, landscapes, culture, cuisine, lifestyles, etc. is almost impossible to find elsewhere. But despite this variety, there is a mysticism that binds the entire nation together. Perhaps that is what lures strangers from distant places to this land of forts and palaces, temples and museums. To offer travellers a majestic way of undertaking this glorious journey with all the desired comforts, IRCTC had launched a one-of-its-kind luxury train in India, The Maharajas’ Express. Taking guests on a luxury odyssey of India, it creates awareness about the rich cultural heritage by showcasing places and perspectives that have never been seen before.

From the warm smiling faces of locals in the small towns of the country to talented regional artists who deliver spectacular performances, there isn’t an aspect of the country that you would miss on this magical train journey. Other than promoting culture tourism in the country, The Maharajas’ Express has achieved cult status as it is often considered to be the finest luxury train in the world. Being bestowed with the ‘World’s Leading Luxury Train’ award 7 times in a row is a feat that speaks for itself.

Not only this, The Maharajas’ Express Train has been the proud winner of the best luxury train award by CNBC Awaaz and seven stars for the category ‘Luxury Hospitality and Lifestyle Awards’ among others. Here are a few things that are included in this extraordinary train tour.

  • Comfortable accommodation available in double or twin bed deluxe cabins with attached modern bathrooms.
