We had heard that it was a "must" to take the first class train service back from Macchu Picchu so we booked it not knowing what it entailed. The tea at Sanctuary Lodge was lovely followed by bus transport down to town as our luggage went on to the train platform. The rail cars were so beautiful. Antique lighting, well maintained wood work and plush seating. The bar/observation car was terrific. Very fun as band had the guests singing and dancing. Unfortunately it was too dark to enjoy much of a view... Service was outstanding. Elegant crew, super friendly. Dinner was really delicious - much better than we expected. Even our 3 sons were raving! All in all - a lovely, first class experience all around.
