I have to tell you that two of your employees that I came into direct contact with were excellent.

Franco our server on our trip Ollantaytambo-Macchu Picchu-Ollanyatambo August 16, 2013 was very attentive and extremely helpful as I have a special diet. Franco took great care to ensure that my diet was adhered to. I am so grateful for this. To me it meant that the Orient Express hires the best of the best.

Jesus our tour guide was SUPER! He was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, fun, interesting, patient and kind. I over heard other guides and they could not even come close to his level of expertise. Macchu Picchu is beyond words but Jesus brought it to life for me. He is a great asset to your company. Arthur Grace

We rode from Ollantaytambo to Agua Caliente. How can you not love this train ride? The cars are comfortable and clean. The views are beyond description. We could have done without the fashion show on the return trip, but it was at least entertaining.

I chose to take this trip on my birthday and surprised my mother and husband. It was exciting to see how excited they both were. The staff were wonderfully attentive on August 15th on the ride to Macchu Pitcchu. They got the singers to perform some songs i love everyone sang happy birthday and qi was given a beautiful leatherbound jounal as a bithday giftfrom the company. This was a complete surprise for me and such an appropriate gift as I am a writer.
The tour with Veronica was wonderful. We all missed the tea time as my mther rested in theroom and my husband and i stayed on at the citadel until closing.
We spent a night in Sanctuary Lodge and the following night in Aguas Calientes returning on the Hiram Bingham train to Cusco.
The return trip was no where near as good as the first. Perhaps the staff were more busy. I drank all four glasses of water at my table andhad to demand from a waiter that i begiven more. I was feeling as though I might feint, so was actually panicking when the water wasnot brought in a reasonable amount of time.
Wenever met the maitre'd on the returntripwhereas on the way down the maitre'd introduced himself to each guest. It made me wish we had done our roundtrip in one day.
As we returned twodays later,it would have suited us better to leave in the day. We had to be out of our hotel by 10 a.m. but the train doesn't leave until the evening. We became over tired and had to sleep but of course could not stretch out. I think if you don't doit all in one day, pyou might as well take a less expensive train for your return. Of course travelling by day affords you beautiful views you can't get at night.

If you're looking to go to Machu Picchu in style this is the way to go. The staff are very friendly and really add to the atmosphere of the trip. We were well fed on the way there and on the way back and the music kept us entertained most of the way as well. Talk to Javier the train manager, he knows the definition of customer service and how to show people a good time.
