“Machu Pichu to Cusco travel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

Was very nicely done, the service was great - they even tried to entertain you with dancers. Overall enjoyable way to travel to Cusco - but if you are looking to sleep - don't take this train.

“great.. but check sunset times”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

The train looked awesome and for the first ten minutes out of aguas caliente it was extremely scenic... then the sun set and the panoramic views went with them. My advice, before you spring for the vistadome, make sure you will be travelling in daylight, otherwise, its just as pleasant to sleep on a non-vistadome after u spent your day hiking mountains

“Great entertaining on the way back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

On the way back from machu picchu we took this train back. Seats were very confy, and one of the crew member dressed up like a clown? that keep us amused. They also did a runway show to promote the alpaca products, which was very interesting.

“Without exceptionally helpful Perurail staff I would have missed Machu Picchu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

I and my school friend are on 2 week trip visiting Lima, Cusco, Machu Picchu, Foz do iguazu and Rio. We had a very tight schedule and missing any one leg could have unravelled the trip. That is what I feared would happen when we arrived 2 minutes late (scheduled departure of 13:27) at Ollantaytambo station for our Perurail Vistadome train to Machu Picchu on 7th Aug.

However the staff at the Perurail ticket booth contacted the Perurail manager Mr Alfredo who was a star of the day and perhaps of the trip for us. He understood our situation, told us to wait at the waiting room on the platform and that he would check on availability of seats on the 15:30 hrs train; which he promptly did and we were able to reach Agua Calientes and visit Machu Picchu on the 8th Aug as scheduled.

The staff also advised us to leave our heavy bags at the 'Left Baggage' at the station which saved us from lugging it around.

Kudos to Mr Alfredo and his team at Perurail in Ollataytambo- Great job and thanks a lot.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

Set of from Cusco at 7am to Macchu Picchu.It was great to see the countryside early in the morning in the mist and frost !
The train and service were excellent.Breakfast was served on the way and consisted of fruit, cake and a choice of drinks.
On the return trip there was a fashion show and music performed by the train stewards which was very entertaining. To experience the magnificent scenery was fantastic. Would recommend this train without hesitation.
