Travel like a Maharaja on Rail Plus' newest luxury train journey

24 May 2012: Rail Plus today added another jewel to its collection of luxury train journeys with the arrival of The Indian Maharaja, an unforgettable eight-day voyage between Mumbai and Delhi.

The award-winning journey visits some of India's most iconic attractions, with highlights including a gala dinner at Udaipur's spectacular City Palace, a jungle safari in Sawai Madhopur, and excursions to the Amber Fort in Jaipur and the spectacular Taj Mahal in Agra.

The opulent train offers three classes of travel - Silver, Gold and Platinum - with large and well-appointed cabins and suites all offering private en-suites.

Guests dine at two restaurant cars serving Indian, Continental, Goan, Chinese and Maharashtrian cuisines, and the train also features a well-stocked bar, a beautiful lounge car, a state-of-the-art gymnasium, a steam bath and an Ayurvedic Massage Centre

Rail Plus National Sales & Marketing Manager Greg McCallum says The Indian Maharaja provides Australian travellers with the ideal way to explore a unique and sometimes intense destination.

"India is unmatched when it comes to colour and excitement, but Australian travellers can often find the experience a little overwhelming," says McCallum.

"The Indian Maharajah provides a new way to experience the country's mesmerising culture and attractions while travelling in comfort and style. From the beautiful cabin interiors to the extraordinary cuisine and the unique sightseeing tours, this is one of the world's most elegant rail journeys."

Prices for the seven-night/eight-day journey between Delhi and Mumbai start from AU$4,528 per person twin share in Silver Class.

Prices include all meals, entrances fees, two jungle safaris, a boat ride on Lake Pichola, a gala dinner in Udaipur or Jaipur, and English speaking guides.

Rail Plus is the exclusive representative of The Indian Maharaja in New Zealand.
