It´s a journey in which the traveller will have a full day of unforgettable experiences between the mystical Andean mountains and the most exclusive luxury that a train can offer. The two dining cars, its bar car with observatory, its kitchen car; the welcoming with sparkling wine and its traditional dancing show are only few of the reasons that converted it in everything that it means today. « less

Came back from MP on the HIram Bingham (we went up on the Vistadome) What a fun ride. Sure it is expensive but they make the most of your time with cocktails in the lounge, a great band playing everything from classic Gypsy Kings to the latest in Latin pop, followed by a good dinner with wine and dessert. Attentive... More

We took the Hiram Bingham between Urubamba and Aguas Calientes. After we booked the Hiram Bingham package (separate review for the Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge) we were informed that during rainy season the train between Cusco and Aguas Calientes was "bimodal" - which means that you have to take a bus or car from Cusco to the Rio Sagrado hotel...

We took the Vistadome up to Machu Picchu and the Hiram Bingham on the return. Two very different experiences and two very different prices. That being said we loved the Hiram Bingham. The train is beautiful and extremely comfortable with a fantastic staff. The bar car was the place to be and there was much fun music, singing, dancing, drinking... More

Took the HB both ways and highly recommend the trip to Machu Picchu as an 'experience' albeit a bit loud. Would consider the Vistadome for the return trip to Cusco.

This train is a brilliant way to see Machu Picchu. The only downside if you are doing this from Cusco is the 1.5 hour bus trip to and from the actual departure station of the train. Having said that, the guide was very helpful throughout and they explain some interesting facts about the local area on the way. The food... More

We took the Hiram Bingham train from Machu Picchu to the Sacred Valley. It's a gilded age dining car with a nice set dinner with a couple of choices for entrees, but the food is nothing special. The train leaves at dark; so one doesn't have any view of the spectacular landscapes. And the $280 price is way too high.... More

In general the service was very good in the Hiram Bingham train, but I would like to complain about one particular aspect: the lack of transparency in the advertisement. The advertisement mentions the existence of an observatory carriage with windows in the ceiling, but, at least in the day I have travelled, it was out of service. They did not... More

We took the Hiram Bingham train to Machu Picchu and it was the highlight of our two week tour to Ecquador and Peru. The train is gorgeous and the views are spectacular. The staff was friendly and the musicans were great fun!
