We paid a bit more for reserved seats, but the experience was worth it. We had great service from Sergio, Priscila, and Analy for drinks and snacks and that made enjoying the scenery outside and through the glass roof even better. This is the best way to get to your day of hiking!

During my first few minutes at the train station in Aguas Calientes, the staff was so friendly that I decided right away to give Peru Rail a glowing review here. Needless to say, the experience only got better. As is done in a few other countries, foreigners and locals take separate trains in Peru. If you are a tourist, DO... More

The train has amazing view of the mountains. We got free service and the staff were super friendly! I got introduced to the history and must go places in Machu Picchu by one of the staff member, Blake. Overall, I enjoyed the whole ride!

Reserve a seat on the luxury car (usually the last car) with more leg room and a meal/snack. Sit facing the way the train is moving, make sure you get the railcar with the glass top roof.

The only reason you take the train, is that there isn't a good other options to get between Ollantaytambo and Aguas Calientes at the base of... More
