We took the Andean Explorer train from Cusco to Puno on Jan 2017. The experience was luxurious from beginning to end. In Cusco we were first served tea in a private waiting room, while our bags were checked into the carriage. Then we were shown to our places in the dining car, where breakfast (for extra cost) was available. Lunch... More

For us, this train ride was a luxurious, fun experience. We were not looking forward to a 10 1/2 hour ride from Cusco to Puno, but the time flew. We had a welcome aboard cocktail, a dance/music ensemble from Cuzco, a gourmet lunch of local foods, a Pisco sour demonstration, another ensemble from Puno, a short stop at La Raya,... More

Taking the train from Puno (Lake Titicaca) to Cusco was fantastic. !0 hours flew by. There is so much to see. Riding through the Andes thru small villages, small farms, in the middle of a village market, etc was fantastic. There is an open air car where you can hang out meet lots of fellow travelers, or a beautiful bar... More

Fantastic experience! Great customer service and attention to details. Long but exciting and interesting journey, extremely comfortable seats and fantastic viewing carriage. Great and attentive staff, especially the supervisor Arnaldo Ponce De La Cruz. We are on our honeymoon and he went out of his way to make it extra special. Highly recommended, definitely worth the price!

Maybe not for the budget traveller, this train trip is good value. The service was excellent, the train very comfortable, the food interesting and tasty, the entertainment fun and the scenery stunning and dramatic. Do this trip if you can. We enjoyed all aspects of the experience and would do it again.
