We took this train back from Aguas Calientes (Machu Picchu) to the Cusco Poroy station. The queue into the station was long and confusing; there were no signs, so we just followed the crowd. The train car was fine; there was a place to store bags, the seats were comfortable, and the restroom was clean. The windows afforded good views, although the glass was scratched and a bit dirty, so they didn't allow for the best pictures. The staff came through a few times with drinks and a snack (some sort of tasteless cinnamon roll). The best part of the trip was watching the staff model alpaca woolen goods.

I highly recommend taking the vistadome option to Machu Picchu. The seats were comfortable and the staff was great, speaking both Spanish and English. The food however was terrible but the views were worth it. They play Inca music quietly and give occasional historical facts about the area. They offer some meals/snacks for free and additional snacks and drinks for a small charge.

We took the Vistadome from Poroy station to Aguascalientes. The sights were beautiful and they had a short description when we were entering villages or historical sights. The service is great and the seats are comfy! They serve food and snacks, which was a plus! On the way back, it was nighttime, so the staff had a dance show and fashion show which were pretty funny.

Dear A TripAdvisor Member,
We are very glad to know that our service on board of the Vistadome was what you expected. We believe that every part of Cusco has its own history, which must be shared with everyone to learn a little more about it. We are also thrilled to know that you enjoyed the fashion show, our staff on board work very hard on it.

Greetings!
