World Travel Award acknowledges and appreciates some of the best organizations engaged in tourism, travel and hospitality. World Travel Awards was established in 1993, and since then it has been considered a great privilege by the companies to be awarded by WTA. It has indeed evolved as a hallmark to measure brilliance and has been regarded as ‘Oscars of the Travel Industry’ by The Wall Street Journal.
Maharaja’s Express is one of the most expensive luxury trains of the world and provides par-brilliance comforts. Its thematic coaches are inspired from erstwhile kingdoms and lifestyles of Indian kings (Maharaja). It covers five journeys, all of which are designed to flaunt the best tourist attractions of India. Some of the destinations it covers are: Mumbai, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Agra, Delhi, Khajuraho, Orchha and Bikaner.
