Owner description: The Vistadome is the ideal train for those who want to be in contact with the environment and appreciate the wonderful journey to Machu Picchu. Totally panoramic windows that connect you to the route. Representative dances of the Andean culture (only on the return trip), music, especially developed to involve you in a sensory journey.Brunch and breakfast prepared with Andean ingredients. Warm and fresh environment, more comfort with leather seats and extensive leg room.

“Comfortable ride to Machu Picchu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

A wonderful and comfortable train ride on the way to Machu Picchu. Peru Rail was the best. They had wonderful staff and the views were out of this world. The only negative is that you are limited to an 11lb backpack so if you are plannign to spend the night in Machu Picchu you would scramble to fit all that you need into the backpack but then they don't weight it ... The ride was very comfortable, they served a snack which we did nto expect and covered the table with gorgeous runners. Enjoyed it.

Dear Mrs. sylvieFS,

It is a pleasure for us to know that you had a wonderful trip aboard the Vistadome train and that you enjoyed all our services. Regarding the 11-pound weight limit per passenger, it is required for safety issues that this be the limit so we do not put our passengers , staff and our trains in any danger. Besides that, we are glad you found the journey to Machu Picchu was really amazing. We want to thank you for your feedback and for taking the time to share it with our community. Also, we want to thank you for choosing PeruRail as your travel option to visit Machu Picchu. We hope to see you soon for another memorable experience with us.

Sincerely,
The Vistadome Team

“Fun experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

We took the Hiram Bingham out to Aguas Calientes, but alas our travel budget couldn't afford the return trip on the same, so we took the Vistadome. It was a pleasant experience. The train was clean and the service impeccable. Don't expect to be full with the food offering, while it was elaborately presented and delivered, the portions were meager - if you're hungry after hiking Machu Pichhu, better bring something to augment the service. There was a fashion show of Alpaca knitwear that had everyone on the train clapping and laughing. Overall a very nice way to transit to/from Poroy to Aguas Calientes.
