What to expect
Relive the golden age of train travel as you visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Machu Picchu aboard the elegant Belmond Hiram Bingham train. Start this VIP trip with hotel pickup, transferring you to Cusco’s Poroy Station where you board your first-class train for a trip you won’t soon forget. Grab a complimentary welcome drink as you step aboard the train, bedecked in blue and gold trim, entering a world of luxury, top-notch food, and exquisite service.  Admire the train’s lavish interior, decorated with shining brass, polished wood, and rich upholstery, as you head to your seat. Soon the train pulls out of the station, heading on an unforgettable journey to the famous Incan citadel. During your ride, check out the train’s observation platform for stellar views of the Andes, and then proceed to the bar car and dining room, where you can enjoy the gastronomic delights of a 3-course lunch (see sample menu in the Itinerary below). Pair your meal with a selection of Argentinean, Chilean, or Peruvian wines, or sample other local libations such as a Pisco Sour or Cusqueña beer. Once you’ve had your fill of lunch, sit back and relax as the train’s on-board musicians perform traditional Peruvian songs using guitars and Cajon box drums. Or head back to the observation platform, where you can soak up the incredible views of the surrounding Andean peaks, lush green valleys and roaring river that surround you on all sides. Upon your arrival at Aguas Calientes, board the luxury transfer bus specially reserved for Hiram Bingham passengers for the quick ride up to Machu Picchu. Enjoy this dedicated shuttle when you see the waiting hordes at the station queued up by the hundreds as they wait for mass transport. Then snake your way up the winding switchback roads to the 7,000-foot (2,134m) mountaintop that is home to this most famous of Andean archaeological sites. Stroll the incredible terraces, elegant buildings and mysterious temples of this superlative site with your guide, making sure to admire the solar clock and engineering marvel of its intricate irrigation system. Following your guided tour, continue your exploration of the grounds at your leisure before heading to the mountaintop Belmond Sanctuary Lodge for afternoon tea. Have a scone or a sandwich with your tea and coffee, or try an appetizer with your choice of wine. Finish your Machu Picchu journey with a shuttle ride back down to Aguas Calientes, where you climb back on board your luxury train for the return trip to Cusco. During the ride back partake in a 4-course gourmet dinner (see sample menu in the Itinerary below) and celebrate your amazing day with the onboard musicians, singing and dancing as you make your way back to Cusco for hotel drop-off.

A highlight of my trip to Machu Picchu.
Nov 2019
Six of us took this train from the Sacred Valley to Machu Picchu and then back to Cuzco. Both directions we had the most wonderful food and on the return trip live music and dancing in the bar car. We laughed so much and the trip seemed like it was just starting when we arrived. We wanted it to go on. I can not wait to take more friends on this journey.

Special occasion
The service, the entertainment - all were wonderful. Unfortunately the food was pretty ordinary, not to mention completely polarising. I’m generally not a fussy eater but I do not enjoy fish. The only other option for a main course was rabbit. I found the menu wound only suit the most adventurous of eaters with no safe options. The bread basket was good.

Wonderful experience
Don’t get me wrong, for a train this is most definitely five stars, but if I’m rating and judging it in the realm of luxury it is just very good versus excellent. The whole experience is wonderful, champagne greeting in the VIP lounge only for train guests. Wonderful original car decor on the inside. As I understand it this used to be the original Oriental express and the LVMH company purchased it and turned it into this current service. White tablecloth, silverware, and glassware all set up for your arrival. I will comment that there is not much space to leave backpacks for day travellers as majority of people who are on this train are. We took it from Machu Picchu back to Cuzco and looked up the price to be $535 for our dates. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience in a part of the world that you’ll probably never return to, but still if we’re looking at value per dollar this is not worth that kind of money. Four course meal was Excellent for a train but just good otherwise. Service was quite good and attentive and no problem with English. Bathroom was lacking very much. Bar cart was fun, but with the slightly bumpy ride some people did drop and break their glasses, bartenders are very well trained but also on one occasion empty glasses were dropped. Had to shield myself from people almost falling over on me, and thought several times they were going to drop wine on me. If it’s in your budget definitely do it. I was pleased but not 535$ one way pleased. FYI, 3 hour ride Vs the 1.5hr fast train option.

Five Star Service
I wasn’t sure if I was making the right decision paying almost $1,100 USD for a day trip to Machu Picchu, but between the amazing service I received and seeing how many people were packed onto the Peru Rail trains, I decided it was the right decision. A long, but fabulous one day experience. I can’t remember everyone’s names, but special thanks to Russell and Javier, among many others.

Expensive and loud Train Ride
Jun 2019
I always wanted to see Machu Picchu and I had choosen the train to have a train ride with stile. The organisation was good and food as well. I was surprised that entertainment was done with loud rock music. The band was good - no doubt about it. I love old music from the 80ties but going to Machu Picchu I would have preferred Andean Music.

Great service, food, and experience from Machu Picchu to Poroy Station
Oct 2019
We were told one MUST do the Hiram Bingham train. We decided to use that service on our return to Cusco (less expensive than service to Machu Picchu). What an elegant and pampered experience! That experience started at the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, where passengers were invited to a private tea in the dining room. We were then transported down to town in our own buses and escorted to the VIP Lounge in the train station. We were then personally escorted to our own table in a train car. Erasmo provided the great service: water, drinks, wine, more wine, and several courses of food. The bar car had a fun (and loud) 3-piece rock band for entertainment that was far more fun than expected. This historic (100+ years old) had a very rough ride (which makes dancing in the bar car challenging) and proceeded at a snail's pace (less than 20 MPH when we checked). The rough ride is the only reason I did not give this experience 5 stars. (I would have given 4.5 stars if that rating was possible.) However, this was a memorable, once-in-a-lifetime experience that capped our visit to the fabulous Machu Picchu citadel.

The Train almost stole the attention from Machu Picchu
I have arrived at Poroy station from Cusco .The train staff were all waiting to check travellers in .Impeccable dressing and manners .The manager (Javier) was welcoming and checking every thing .
They assigned a member of staff to every passenger and took luggage away while We enjoyed a life Peruvian show and drinks .
The journey was amazing and the band on the train made the time fly .It just felt right .Everyone was attentive but respectful of private space .
We had three course meal ,The starter and desert is worthy of Michelin stars.
We left the train with our guides and buses
Clear instructions and excellent English .
We had souvenirs and left the train with bottles of water to accompany our journey to Machu Picchu .Nick our guide was great and experienced.
We ended the day with fantastic afternoon tea at the Sanctuary lodge
The train is clean and well maintained without any faults.
If you want to experience Machu Picchu in luxury then it’s worth every Penny

Awesome time - great band
A fantastic train ride. In the beginning we had a cocktail and then listened to the music band. Out of the blue the band managed to get the people dancing- very funny and amazing.

Food and service was great. We certainly recommend to take a ride - unforgettable!

Awesome train ride!
We got on at a stop outside of Cusco. We enjoyed the onboard band and the outside viewing deck on the bar car. The cappuccinos and chocolate pastries were delicious. Lunch was very good. When we arrived at Macau Picchu we had our on guide and no wait for a bus. It was included. We also had tea at the Sanctuary Hotel.
