“Above and beyond”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Although I was not feeling well, I had ice in a drink at my hotel bar and was truly sick most of the trip. EVERYONE went well above the service I expected. From the moment I arrive when Javier personally greeted me. I can't tell you enough under the circumstance I had a great time even if I couldn't enjoy the amazing things food wise that you offer!

I have already told all my friends they must take the Hiram.. The staff, service, organization was truly something I will forever remember.

“Travel in excellence”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

The Hiram Bingham trip to Machu Picchu exceeded all my expectations. A pleasant bus ride to the station and we were received with music, tea, coffee and cakes till we boarded. Well appointed staff and a fabulous train. The atmosphere on board was jovial and the beverages and meals supplied endless and of top quality. The scenic route via rail is magnificent. On arrival expecting to wander aimlessly around Machu Picchu with my partner, we were surprised to be provided into a small group of 4 couples with our own guide who showed us around the site and was a wealth of information and a lot of fun. Do the Hiram Bingham it's a must! Purchasing tickets online was easy and the correspondence with the staff of Peru Rail made this trip a memorable one for us

“Its the Journey !”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

The Hiram Bingham Train is a luxury train on the route to Machu Picchu , a great train, but its the scenic journey that is the main attraction. Three different classes of train making the trip and you do not need to pay the premium price of the Hiram Bingham to have a great and comfortable trip. You pass small farms, tiny hamlets and follow a route only a few yards from a raging mountain river, all the time through a high walled canyon. A trip to remember.

“Unforgetable”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

For our 20th wedding anniversary we decided to spend our week at Cusco, and my wife had a special gift for me, which was a trip to Machu Picchu on board of this great Hiram Bingham train, I had to tell it has been one of the best trips ever, very romantic and pleasant, all of the crew was fantastic, among the cars and obviously the trip itself, the landscapes are breathtaking! The crew had prepared our table with rose petals and champagne to celebrate our day. The panoramic car had a folkloric band on board playing beautiful music while we could enjoy an open bar, offering from hot beverages, snacks and all sort of spirits. After a while we had a 5 star restaurant lunch, amazing combinations of flavors. The service was amazing. Once we got to the final destination at Aguas Calientes we took a bus to Machu Picchu, which was a total complete experience (will write about it later), after the visit they were waiting for us with a buffet to wait for the bus to return to the train. The trip back to Cusco was even better, we enjoyed a romantic dinner at our table and then celebrated with the rest of the people enjoying live music on the panoramic car, everyone singing and playing an instrument, was amazing! If anyone who is looking for a special place to celebrate a great occasion like this I will completely recommend this experience.
