Maharajas' Express

Why We Love This Train :

Location: Explorers seeking a little luxury whilst winding through India’s stunning landscapes will be spoilt for choice with journeys aboard the Maharajas’ Express, departing from Mumbai or Delhi and passing through Jaipur, Jodhpur and Agra, to name but a few.

Service: Passengers aboard this engine will be treated to every luxury and all the attentive service befitting the Maharajas it is named for.

History: A journey aboard the Maharajas’ Express is the chance to discover ancient India with its temples and palaces, myths and legends, and unspoilt natural beauty.


The Maharajas’ Express is equipped for passengers’ every need. With bars and restaurants catering to all tastes, there’s something for avid shoppers too; treasure hunters will enjoy browsing in the on board gift shop.

Treasure Chest

Passengers in search of a memento of this unforgettable trip will be spoilt for choice in this high-end boutique, stocked with handmade traditional crafts and souvenirs.


With two 42-seater restaurants and two bars to choose from, guests can recline in luxury and enjoy immaculately-prepared, delicious dishes from all over the world, served by friendly, knowledgeable staff, and enjoy a social drink beforehand too.

Mayur Mahal Restaurant

Named after the prince of birds - the peacock - this beautiful restaurant with its colourful, classic decor is a wonderful place to enjoy a meal, with a backdrop of marvellous views from the panoramic windows.

Rajah Lounge

With its own bar, the Raja Lounge is a great spot for a quiet drink, snuggled in a cozy leather armchair with a good book or around a relaxing board game.

Rang Mahal Restaurant

In the Rang Mahal carriage, the Haveli restaurant serves delectable meals created with care and innovation with fresh ingredients.

Safari Bar

After a day of sightseeing, what better way to unwind before of after dinner than with a drink with fellow passengers? The Safari Bar is charmingly decorated and boasts a list of fine wines, beers and spirits.
