“Expensive but worth it”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

The Hiram Bingham train was a great way to travel. We had private seating in the dining car, a live band in the back bar car, and lots of space to relax. And, pretty much everything was compted. We came back on the Vistadome. It was a lot more crowded, expectedly, with much less leg room. But we had an Alpaca fashion show and everybody seemed to be enjoying themselves. In fact, the Vistadome offered better viewing of the local scenery because of the vista viewing. Still, the Hiram Bingham train made the trip painless.

“A Pleasant way to Travel to Aquas Calientes”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

We enjoyed this train ride, but were disappointed to discover that our seats were on the wrong side of the train both ways! Make sure you are seated on the river side of the train (right side on the way to Machu Pichu) as that is where the view is. Service is excellent. They even included a little vase of fresh flowers on our table with the meal. A carnival dancer entertained us with his dancing in the aisle and we enjoyed a fashion show featuring the beautiful cashmere of the region..

“Comfortable, elegant and very enjoyable”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

This is definitely the way to go from Cusco to Machu Picchu if you want to travel in style and as comfortably as possible. The staff was very attentive, food was good, and the live music on the bar and observation car was quite enjoyable. Expensive but worth it
