This was a wonderful experience. You can see everything, the train goes a bit faster than the slower luxury train. The food was good and the service was very friendly. This is a tourist train so safety is not an issue at all and the seats are comfort seats with beautiful views through the vistadome. You can even get some... More

We like the Vistadome train with great service and fantastic views on our way from Olla to MP. Snacks were Ok and a cup of coffee made a good start of out trip to MP. During daytime they perform shows with local bands and alpaca products presentation. Although its pricey for 1.30 min ride but it worth it because of... More

Considering it's the only way in to Machu Picchu except for walking for a 4 days - you really have no other option than to pay through the nose. $75 US each way for a 90 min trip. However, the whole thing is very professionally run with great customer service. You get a snack and a drink on the trip... More

Horribly expensive. Because of quasi monopoly between PeruRail and Inca Rail and the fact there is no other transportations option to Agua Calientes, prices are kept really high. You are forced to pay high prices if you want to visit Machu Picchu.

We had a comfortable train ride to Machu Picchu and back on Peru Rail. However the return trip was a little chaotic as passengers were tired and in a hurry to get to their trains. Overall had a great experience and the morning views were spectacular. The on boarding process was well organized.

The train was clean and very well kept and the views were amazing. There are multiple trains sharing the same track. We came to a complete stop a couple times to allow trains who were going the other direction the opportunity to pass us.

The only way to reach Machu Pichu is by train from Ollantaycambo. The VistaDome car run by Peru Rail is a very pleasant way to travel along the Urubampa River. The delightful crew serves a simple Peruvian style breakfast on the outbound leg and a snack on the return trip. They also put on a fashion show and do a... More
