A great experience not to be missed on a visit to Peru. We travelled from Puno (Lake Titticaca) to Cusco. The journey, taking a full day from morning to early evening, takes you through a varied Peruvian landscape and towns. The open rear wagon gives passengers an extensive panoramic view as the train slowly makes it way, at one point passing right through the middle of a market, with the vendors clearing items from the track then immediately putting them back again behind the train, in some cases leaving them in place as the train passes harmlessly over them, truly amazing sight. With so much to see and appreciate, enjoying the splendid onboard service was secondary. The carriages are fitted out very elegantly, polished wood and soft furnishings abound, very comfortable armchairs at your own dining table, super service, provided in our case by the ever atttentive Nora. It's all very indulgent.The train was late into Cusco, but that's not the point of it. Travel by road and everything flashes by, not much quicker and far far less civilised and enjoyable. Take the train, it's really very wonderful.
