Altogether professional, from the meeting with your representative the evening before to the return to the hotel at the end of the day, everything was more than I expected.

I am a wholly deaf solo traveller on Tuesday 8/9/15, I was picked up by the transfer taxi from Belmond Hotel Monasterio Cusco approx. 30 mins driving journey each way. I arrived at Poroy Railway Station, the other tourists whom I met there and I were greeted by the friendly members of Belmond Hiram Bingham staff! They escorted us to our seats in the early 1920s vintage type train.
During the train journey to Aguas Calientes for Machu Picchu, we enjoyed looking at the beautiful Peruvian countryside scenery from the trains bar carriage with the observation car where we drank various drinks and the live musical band played I cannot hear, of course before we had the brunch meal in the dining carriage.
We arrived in Aguas Calientes, we got the bus to Machu Picchu. The friendly Peruvian male guide showed the 3 other tourists and myself around Machu Picchu. I asked him if we would visit the House of Guardians with the breath-taking view of whole Machu Picchu he said that we would go there after visiting the other parts of Machu Picchu first. Unfortunately, he talked to the other 3 tourists too long than necessary while I waited in the less important part of Machu Picchu such waste of time! We did not have enough time to spend at the House of Guardians, so I had to take some photos of myself with the background of whole Machu Picchu in a hurry and I did not get a chance to walk up to the House of Guardians before we had to return to Belmond Sanctuary Hotel for the afternoon tea. I was not happy! We should have been there at the House of Guardians a bit longer its an important part of Machu Picchu than the other parts!
We returned to that train and the live musical band played again in the bar carriage for the evening drinks before we had the dinner in the dining carriage. We arrived in Poroy that evening before our transfer taxis picking us up for returning to the hotels in Cusco. It was the greatest lifetime experience!
