Why Travelers Choose This Tour

It's a once-in-a-lifetime splurge on a trip to the Lost City of the Incas.
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. During your trip on this traveling palace of luxury you’ll be wined and dined with the finest food, drink and entertainment before getting a chance to visit one of the world’s most incredible archaeological sites.
Start this VIP trip with pickup at your hotel, transferring you to Cusco’s Poroy Station where you’ll 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 3-hour 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’ll 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.

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 and appetizer your choice of wine.
Finish your Machu Picchu journey with a shuttle ride back down to Aguas Calientes, where you’ll climb back on board your luxury train for the return trip to Cusco.

Quite expensive, but if you have the means, it's worth every penny. It is a once in a life time experience where everything is done to make this trip memorable. Go for it.

Do NOT book this tour through Viator / Trip Advisor / Vjaes Pacifico. They are UNETHICAL. This tour is operated by the Belmond Hotel chain. It cost $855 USD for the time I went. They don’t communicate bc they aren’t the operator. BOOK THROUGH BELMOND. Otherwise, the tour itself is FIVE STARS.

Lovely experience. I hope everyone has a chance to go to Machu Pichu. It is a one in a lifetime experience, a magical place.
The train ride was fabulous, the service impecable. The entertainment was awesome. We danced, sang and met wonderful people on the train. A French couple who reside in NYC that we met on the train is now connected with us on FB.
It was an unforgettable day for us that we will always remember.

The train ride and the tour were fantastic, really recommended. However, I'm not quite sure if booking through Viator adds that much for the extra price. Communication was suboptimal. We were staying in an AirBnB so I wanted to make sure that we would be picked up and what time. It was difficult to get in touch with them, but after all everything went smooth.

It's not cheap but it was great fun. Excellent service throughout with a great departure party before getting on the Train. All meals we beautifully served plus extremely tasty plus the band on board were absolutely amazing. The energy they put into the whole trip created great entertainment. Well worth the experience.

The Hiram Bingham Train was a brilliant way to travel to and from Machu Picchu. The train is beautiful, the food and entertainment superb! It is recommended that you board the train in Ollaytantambo AVOID at all cost the bus ride required from Cusco to the station. We thought we would be boarding the train very close to Cusco where we were staying, only to find out that during the rainy season, they bus you'll the way to the next city to board the Hiram Bingham train. The ride is bumpy, uncomfortable and on a very windy road. Not so bad on the way to with a safe slow driver, but the return ride was terrible we had a wanna be Nascar driver. In all seriousness, we had a very dangerous driver, taking hair pin turns at high rates of speed, we had people getting sick in our bus because of his driving - it was risky, unacceptable and a terrible way to end an amazing day in Machu Picchu. We wish we had take the driver's name, as he should be fired by the Hiram Bingham company. We paid a lot of money to this company and we should not have been subjected to this dangerous ride. Again, I would've rated this a 5 star but for this part of the trip.
