“Very scenic train ride”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

Having to take a bus for almost an hour outside Cusco to the temporary Ollantambo station is a nuisance but once you reach the train it is excellent. Views of mountains, ruins, foliage and a river of spectacular rapids are all iimpressive. The train is comfortable. The staff is attentive. Truly the best way to get to Machu Picchu!

“Amazing Experience & Great Staff”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

We went to Macchu Picchu with PeruRail, who were amazingly well organised. The experieince from buying our ticket in Cusco was suberb. On our return trainmy friend and I discovered we weren´t sitting together, which wasn´t a relaly big issue but we thought we would see if they could put us together on the off chance. We were helped by Alonso Saaugaka (I think that´s the spelling of his name) and he couldn´t have been more kidn to us. He looked pretty busy but still managed to find us seats together - thank you. Included in your ticket is a drink and snack, which were weren`t expecting so this was a little treat. All in all an excellent service which I would reccomend.

I enjoyed journey with PeruRail from Machu Picchu to Ollantaytambo. The nature views with mountain and landscapes were amazing and unforgettable. The service from PeruRail was fabulous! I would like to thank you to Wilbert Aparicio and Luis Alderio who provided me kindness and beautiful smiles! These guys truly made my trip full of joy and fun!

“Clean and comfortable, but only a view on one side”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

By far the best way to end your trek to Machu Piccu, and a great way to get there for those who can't trek. My mother took the train both ways and it is very relaxing and fast.

Reviewed March 10, 2014

Relaxing. Don't miss you train as seats are assigned and there is little leeway. Buy seats well in advance.
