Maharaja Express – an initiative of Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) – is the latest luxury train to be introduced in India. Dubbed India’s equivalent to the Orient Express of Europe, this Maharaja train is rated by prestigious travel magazines and luxury guides as one of the greatest rail journeys in the world.
Maharaja Express has been designed to redefine executive travel. But there’s more to it than sheer class. With its 5 tastefully crafted rail journeys, it presents India in a way never seen before. Long before the arrival of colonial power, India used to be the land of maharajas. Kingdoms were founded, cultures flourished and art developed.
The Maharajas journeys are crafted to offer you a glimpse into this rich heritage and culture of India through:
Cultural immersions through insider experiences
Visits to forts and palaces replete with history
Guided tours to World Heritage Sites
Excursions into National Parks to witness untamed wildlife
Arrangement of folk dances at select destinations performed by local artists
Traditional Indian hospitality
