Aboard the Maharajas Express, each guest receives royal pampering. The Maharajas train package is all inclusive and covers accommodation, meals, beverages, butler services, excursions, transport, services of a guide, porterage and entrance fees. Each guest has a valet or attendant always available for any service. That's royalty for you. We now take it to the next level, giving guests more royal delights aboard the train, at no extra charge. For instance, for those who wish to be on Hi-spirits, we have added 12 year old Glenlivet and Johnny Walker Black label as part of the house pours along with existing beverages"
