The food served consisted of a small pastry and beverage (coffee, tea, and juices) for breakfast and a pizza with beverage for the return trip from Aguas Calientes. The staff was friendly and kind, especially to my 2 year old son. By far the most gorgeous train ride I have ever... More

We took the train to km104 the first dag. The day after we took the train from Aguas Calientes to Ollantaytambo (Servicepersonal: Priscila, Heydi and Ronald). Both ways the service was good and professional. We were served coffee and cookies and had a very nice trip.

The 1 1/2 hour ride from Ollaytantambo to Aquas Callientas (Machu Picchu town) is very scenic. I was able to get my tickets online and the train ride was very comfortable. The staff is helpful and friendly. This was definitely the best choice to get to Machu Picchu.

The staff on the train are great. Pricing is good comparatively and I enjoyed the views of the mountains and glacier on my way to Machu Pichu. There were two particular staff who went over and above, Claudia C and Carlos V, they were entertaining and charming throughout the trip! I would recommend Peru Rail to travelers.
