Perurail Experience

Perurail has friendly staff and it was a good experience. The train tickets can get a bit pricey though.

After an arduous 4 days of jungle trekking to Machu Picchu myself and my 3 friends were extremely overwhelmed and tired after our adventure. We were having trouble booking a train back to Ollantaytambo where we needed to then get our shuttle back to Cusco. Finally we booked onto a train, went and sat in the waiting area until we... More

My girlfriend accidentally left her cellphone in our hostal in Ollantaytambo, and we couldn't leave the train. We didn't know the name of the hostal. The crew went the extra mile to help us out and were able to secure her cellphone. The attendants on the train (Brian and Lisa) were very kind and sympathetic to our situation. Lisa even... More

We were planning our Machu Picchu trip during an awkward time. We were trying to finalize plans a couple months before the end of the year in 2016 for the very beginning of the year in 2017. This meant that many places, including Machu Picchu and train tickets, weren't necessarily selling tickets for the 2017 year. PeruRail was the only... More

The journey was comfortable. We were a foursome so we faced each other and could have a pleasant conversation during the journey.

Took this train since was the quickest way to get to Aguas CalienteS. The train is in very good conditions but the price is just ridiculous for the service provided. Nice boarding process, but complete mess disembarking. 140 dollars for this train is a disgrace.

In my preperation for the trip to Machu Picchu I could only see that people were recommending Vistadome in favour of Expidition class because of the bigger window and hence better views. After riding Vistatom to MP and Expedition back I can say that the most important factor for me wast the ride comfort. The Vistadome is a smooth ride... More
