8 DAYS PANORAMA OF INDIA – MAHARAJAS’ EXPRESS

Delhi, Jaipur, Ranthambore, Fatehpur Sikri, Agra, Orchha, Khajuraho & Vanarasi

History & Culture, Rail Journeys

Highlights

  • Save half the journey time aboard the luxurious, award-winning Maharajas’ Express
  • Off-the-beaten to Orchha’s palace fort by tuk-tuk and Khajuraho’s erotic temples
  • Boat cruise along the Ganges river with enchanting Aarti ceremony
  • Exclusive dinner with Kathak Dance at Brij Rama Palace
  • Optional extension to Delhi, Jodhpur and Udaipur

For a country as vast as India, long journeys of two weeks or more are typically unavoidable, but this can be reduced by half aboard the regal Maharajas’ Express, designed after the opulence of Indian royalties.

Starting from the iconic Golden Triangle, this journey then ventures inland into the Heart of India. Marvel at the under-visited gems such as Orchha monuments and the Kama Sutra-inspired temples of Khajuraho. Finally, we conclude at India’s spiritual hub in Varanasi.
