There are two ways to take the train to Machu Picchu. I suggest the long one from Cusco. You experience switchbacks and villages along the way. You also enjoy a meal and a little entertainment. The Ollantaytambo trip is the short one. I have taken...More

This is the most expensive train in the world or one of the most. But I recommend to try this at least for one way to go or to come back from Machu Picchu.More
