A delightful anachronistic experience. The train was finely appointed from its white table cloths to the perfectly polished brass and hardwoods that looked to have at least 20 coats of varnish. The dining was superb, the table was spacious and it was a wonderful way to make our way to Aguas Calientes / Machu Picchu. I found the band in... More

This train journey is a memorable way to travel from Cusco to Aguascalientes Calientes and back. Service was friendly and excellent and the food and drink were very good considering you are on a train. Comfortable seats, an observation car and plenty of photo opportunities. Other bonuses from travelling on thus train are the fact that you avoid queuing for... More

The food and service are great on the Hiram Bingham. It is a bit hectic and complicated when you arrive at the Aguascalientes Train Station due to the amount of tourists converging and the Hiram Bingham Guide begins yelling to keep walking and get on the A, B, or C bus to Machu Picchu then the buses arrive but are...

The train moves slowly through the mountains on the way to Macchu Picchu. Great scenery and a lot of windows to see it through. Left on time and was a great experience overall.

There is only one way to get to Machu Picchu and it is by train. You have two options: the Hiram Bingham and the Vistadome. I booked both. One going to and the other, coming from. At first I thought the Hiram Bingham was a little expensive, but I did not know that we had the food, the pastries, the... More

Amazing experience. We just loved it... we did a day trip to the ruins and did it both ways on the Hiram Bingham. We ate, we drank, we saw amazing scenery, we drank some more... fantastic trip! In my opinion it was well worth the extra expense - for us, Peru was more than likely a "once in a lifetime"... More

Our tour operator booked us on the Hiram Bingham from Aguas Calientes to Cuzco. The whole experience was over the top opulence -- probably something we wouldn't have booked on our own -- but it was memorable. The bar car was rockin with the band and the free-flowing Pisco Sours. Dinner was truly excellent and on par with, if not... More

If you want to get to Machu Picchu with live music and a nice Pisco cocktail in your hand, this is the way! Old fashioned train with amazing service. Round trip includes guide, transportation to the ruins, meals and high tea in the afternoon... what else can you ask for?
