Must-sees include the ever beautiful Taj Mahal, seeking tigers in Ranthanbore National Park, a lake cruise in Udaipur and dinner at Rambagh Palace in Jaipur.

Each time you return to the Maharajas' Express you feel a tingle of excitement as you return 'home', knowing the warm welcome and luxury that await. By the end of the week you'll have built up a wealth of memories to cherish for many years to come.
