Train ride options


I'll be visiting Peru / MP in mid-Aug, and am considering transport options from Cusco. I see there are 3 different lines of train travel on Perurail. If we're not on a strict $ budget, is the Hiram Bingham worth it for the extra $ over Vistadome? Is the tour that it comes with any good, or are we better off booking through a different tour operator?

Also, do you recommend training it in the night before and getting to MP first thing in the morning, or is it fine just taking the morning train from Cusco?

Appreciate any advise!

It was an airport pickup so probably cost a bit more than a hotel pickup since he had to wait at the terminal for us. I'm sure you could have found one a bit cheaper by shopping around or picking one up on the street.

That makes sense, it is always a bit more from the airport.
