Our journey from Puno to Cusco took 11 hours but they passed very comfortably. This is old style Pullman service. Our seats were wooden wing back armchairs. We had a dining table with tablecloth, rose in a vase and a brass table lamp. All was dark, varnished wood, even in the luxurious loo. We left Puno promptly at 8 am. We were served a late breakfast, a decent lunch and afternoon tea. Tea, coffee and wine were served with the meals and everyone was given a complementary pisco sour. At the rear of the train the observation car was great as we could sit or stand and watch the Andean countryside pass by slowly, the average speed was around 25 mph. A slight annoyance was the inevitable pan pipes band and a truly dreadful 'fashion show' but overall the journey was good. Arriving in Cusco at around 7 pm we collected our luggage which had been carried in the luggage van and then laid out on the platform, all clearly and efficiently tagged and checked. A good, relaxing way to travel through the Peruvian countryside.
