What a great and fun way to travel to and from Machu Picchu!!! Great Pisco Sours, great food, good entertainment! It was such a treat to stand at the open end of the Observation Car and see the people going about their daily lives framed by the incredible countryside!

“Nice Train Ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

We booked tickets on the train with windows in the ceiling. Since your ride by the tall Andes, well worth the extra money and view. We even received a little food/drink on the way.

“Far more fun than I expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

The views were not that great becasue the valley is so narrow. They completely entertained you on the way in and out with live music and drinks. Watch the booze on the way to MP. You are going to be sorry you drank so much -- I was.

“What an experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

My wife and I were celebrating her 50th birthday in Machu Picchu and I surprised her with this unique experience on our way back to Cusco September 4th. She was delighted. After you make your dinner selection you are asked to go to the bar car. That turned into such a fun party. The three man Peruvian band was fantastic. They played many Latin classics and the party was on. All of us were dancing the whole time as the champagne flowed. They ended with a Beatles sing along that had everyone singing and dancing.
Afterwards we enjoyed a great gourmet dinner. We made many friends that we kept running into in Cusco at different hotels,shops and just walking in the streets.
We will never forget this part of our trip.
