Great experience!
What a wonderful experience! The ride to/from Machu Picchu via the Vistadome is absolutely beautiful, and it’s also super fun! Jared, Paola and Hemdon were amazing hosts. The cars were comfortable, the entertainment was perfect, and the environment made it easy to make friends while enjoying the trip. I would highly recommend!!

More than just a train ride
The Vistadome train ride was really a step above. What an amazing ride! As first time visitors to Peru, we had no idea what to expect. My sister and I were just excited to visit Machu Picchu. But every moment of the ride from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes was filled with amazement.

From the moment the train pulled in to the station, we could see an Andean dancer waving to us from the train’s observatory and we knew it would be a special experience. Once we boarded the train, we were in awe of the views from above. Along the ride, you can see the snow capped mountains and wondrous views of the Peruvian landscape.

Francisco was the absolute best and made us feel at home. He talked with us about the history of the train and local culture. Not only did Francisco point out special landmarks along the way, the overhead announcements gave small snippets of history in both English and Spanish.

In the Observatory, the dancers, Priscilla and Cesar, were lively and added to our excitement before reaching Machu Picchu. The sounds of Ramiro’s beautiful violin playing provided an amazing soundscape for our ride through the mountains.

During this time of COVID-19, we were nervous at first but the team, especially Hernan, went above and beyond to make us feel safe and protected every step of the way.

Do not hesitate to book the Vistadome train ride, you will not be disappointed!

Machu Picchu vista dome train ride
The vista dome was amazing! We had (Brayanth) on our rail car and he totally awesome. Every time we passed a cool spot he would point it out to us on the train. This allowed us to get some really awesome pictures. Brayanth made the trip 100% better.

In addition to the beautiful views we experienced on our way from Ollantaytambo to Machu Picchu, our guide Francisco was informative & kind! After we arrived in Aguas Calientes, he generously accompanied my mother & I on a local waterfall hike nearby. It was the perfect start to our trip. Thank you Francisco and Perurail!

Excellent service! Great view!
Vista Dome is better than Expedition, is worth the price for the huge windows that make the difference
If you’re lucky try to get the panoramic train that is completely open in the back, it doesn’t run all the timetable

Wonderful journey! 100% recommend!
We were very impressed with the organization overall and the attention given to each and every passenger. The trip going to Machu Piccu was only one passenger car and the observatory car(?) from the Hiram Bingham luxury train. Amazing views, and a very cool surprise show! I cannot say enough about the professionalism of Paola, Francisco, and Diago and would 100% recommend Peru Rail to my friends and family! Thank you all for making our trip so comfortable and memorable!
