We took the “Vistadome” train and it was a great experience. Snacks and coffee/tea/juice offered. Amazing view. On our way back we had a little show and also local goods (Alpaca clothing) presented. Great service and attention.

I will never ever understand why these make us all pay at least 150 usd return for a 1.30-1.45 mins train ride. Modest train, views are just ok. If there wouldn’t be any Machu Picchu there, you would pay this ride easily 10-20 PEN. Disgusting...More

From what we saw, most people chose to travel with the Expedition instead of the Vistadome and this could be the reason why during our trip, we saw several cancellations on the Vistadome schedules. The Expedition is a nice, clean and very comfortable train. We...More

You pretty much have to buy a train ticket if you want to see Machu Picchu, or you have to walk in on the Inca Trail. We booked a ticket on the Vista Dome train from Ollantaytambo. We booked an Uber from Cusco and had...More

My wife and I took the Vista Dome train from Machu Picchu to Cusco. People sit face to face and there is physically not enough room for a foot and leg under the table. This train is for anyone who likes cutting their feet off.

Casual is OK. You can dress up if you wish but certainly not shorts, sneakers and singlets. Tie optional
