I took the train to Machu Picchu, the scenery was unbelievable along the way. The train had a glass roof and because of that you can see all the majestic cliffs, beautiful trees and flowers that surround the railroad tracks.

It is a plain ordinary train ride from Ollantaytanbo to Machu Picchu (Agua Calientes). The only way to get to Agua Calientes is by train. So, they almost have a monopoly (there is also Inca Rail). You get an assigned seat, it is reasonably comfortable, it is clean, and the train leaves right on time. On the way back they... More

The rating reflects the old style card that they use on this line - our air conditioning did not work - so windows were opened and fumes came flowing in - wouldn't take unless they guaranteed the new cars - the new cars are 4 stars! Staff are also 4 stars!!

We were treated to meals and prompt efficient service by a very attentive staff. On the trip back to Cusco we were even treated to a... More

Good views and service. The ticket includes a drink and a quinoa pizza which were very nice. I think that the fashion show / trying to get people to buy some clothes was a bit of overkill.

We did the train from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Caliente and back to complete our MP trip. We caught the Vistadome on the way up. The train was great, we received a hot beverage with small sandwiches/snacks which we were not expecting. We were sitting on the left side of the train in the direction of travel, which was the best... More

We booked round trip to Aguas Calientes from Ollantaytambo. The ride up was very nice; spectacular scenery. Nice snacks (coffee, juices, tea, water, soft drinks) and two late morning sandwiches. The ride back was insane: the staff are required to model Peruvian woolen wear to captive tourists. While this probably is seen as a way to "shorten" the travel time... More
