Have you ever thought about experiencing and exploring India's mesmerising golden triangle by rail? Be treated like Indian royalty and travel the infamous route in unrivalled luxury. Taking inspiration from the golden age of rail, travel the Maharajas' Express - it is one of the great trains of history. Spend a few nights exploring the vibrant cosmopolitan of Delhi, visiting the Lotus Temple, Humayun's Tomb and the bustle of Old Delhi before departing at approximately 09:30 from Delhi's Safdarjung railway station to embark to the romance of Agra.

After visiting the captivating Taj Mahal, head onto Ranthambore National Park - head out on a game drive to spot elusive tigers, sloth bears and leopards. After a safari like no other, head onto the Pink City of Jaipur for more exploration before heading back to Delhi for your onward journey. From Delhi, another Indian adventure can await you - head to other cultural delights including Amritsar or head south to Goa for a relaxing beach stay at the honey-coloured sands and inviting waters.
