Enjoy the beautiful Andean landscape of Peru on board of a luxury and magical way to travel between Cusco and the Lake Titicaca. Travelling in the Andean Explorer is a unique experience, a route between mountains, clouds, snow-capped mountains and puna finishing in the majestic Lake Titicaca. Its coaches involve you in an environment extremely decorated with the elegant style of Pullman trains of the decade of 1920. Its tourist shows, the 5-fork lunch, dining cars, observatory-bar car outdoors, among other attractions.

If this isn't on your 'bucket list' it should be. Everyone visiting Peru should make this train journey part of their itinerary (unbeatable value for money). The service and food were exemplary and the onboard entertainment by the Peruvian dancers and musicians whilst travelling through the breathtaking Andean countryside is something we will never forget.

10 hour ride in a vintage diesel. Well appointed. Lots of wood and brass. Elegant old style train. Excellent service. Good food, nice seating. There is a general car for seating with Queen Ann chairs and a formal table setting. Comfortable bar car. Very spacious and open observation car at the end. Absolutely worth doing. The train , the views... More

I really enjoyed this train ride. I thought that a 10-hour train ride would be unpleasant, but this ride was very nice. The seats were very comfortable and spacious, the food was excelent, there were interesting views from the train, the entertainment was enjoyable, and the service was fantastic. The specific employees who provided service for my traincar were Boris,... More

From pre-boarding to disembarking....A+++ service from the staff, especially our coach attendant Freddy. We traveled from Puno to Cusco and the 10+ hours went by so quickly with gorgeous views from the sightseeing coach. Highly recommend doing this train ride....Best Ever!!!!

Like others, I wondered if this would be really worth it - and 10 hours! But after traveling all modes in Peru, have to say this was spectacular. What a relaxing journey - but also incredibly stunning. Would never have seen the diversity from the Andes to the altiplano - and then all the culture they weave in as well.... More

Andean Explorer was our first 'First Class' Train Ride, and it exceeded all our expectations! Upon arrival at Wanchaq station, our bags were collected from the Taxi by porters and we were escorted to a Lounge where we were checked-in and served Tea/Coffee. Then we were shown to our seats. The train started on time and made it's way through... More

We had a great time. A relaxing day. First class service. I imagine it's like the Trans-Siberian (I wouldn't know because I haven't done it - but it seemed to be like what I have seen on TV). Felt really pampered. Great value!! Great way to have a relaxing day watching the Peruvian landscape in its many varied forms waft... More

Beautiful views and great way to travel, however the food was a real let down especially considering price. Beef was over cooked and hardly resembled bourguignon more like weak stew.
