As the year 2011 draws to a close, a grand way to welcome New Year 2012 in style is all aboard Maharajas’ Express. On 31st December 2011, when the world would be eagerly waiting to welcome the advent of New Year 2012, guests on board Maharajas’ Express Princely India tour will embark on a weeklong sojourn.

To celebrate the occasion of the New Year, Indian Luxury Trains (ILT) has announced exclusive discounts of up to 10% on various luxury rail tour packages in India. Maharajas Express, the most luxurious train in Asia, offers an inimitable way to kick-start the New Year with a distinctive panache in sheer opulence.

The specially crafted itinerary which includes sundowner cocktails in Sam dunes, folk performances, Elephant Polo matches and dining with the descendents of former Indian Maharajas in royal palaces makes Maharajas Express a bonafide “journey like no other”.

The introduction of Maharajas’ Express has redefined the art of elegant train traveling around the world. This ultra-luxury train is equipped with state-of-the-art amenities, plush restaurants, a presidential suite offering an opulent stay comparable to a 5-star hotel, and guided off-train excursions in private luxury cars creating a far more superior travel experience when compared to other luxury trains.
