Photo diary: The Maharajas' Express & beyond

If you love the old-school romance of train travel, there's no better place to head than India. With beautiful panoramas floating past and lavish carriages to relax in, it is a wonderful way to experience the nostalgia and glamour of a bygone era.

James thoroughly enjoyed his research trip aboard India's most luxurious train: the Maharajas' Express, which launched in spring 2010. Here are a few photo memories from his journey, which took him from Mumbai onwards to Vadodara, the lakeside city of Udaipur, the blue city of Jodhpur, the desert city of Bikaner, the pink city of Jaipur, Ranthambore Tiger sanctuary, Agra -- home of the Taj Mahal -- and Delhi.

If you're tempted to embark on your own luxury rail adventure, or if you'd simply like more information, please give James a call on 020 7289 6100 or email him at james@ampersandtravel.com





We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
