Full description
Start your day with a pickup from your accommodation in Cusco to take you to the train station. Upon arrival at the train station, you will board the train to start on this extraordinary train ride to Machu Picchu and enjoy beautiful views.

If you have chosen the first class train, you will enjoy an exquisite gourmet menu, prepared using Andean organic ingredients like trout, quinoa, and aguaymanto accompanied by a selection of wines. This train also features a luxurious Observatory-Lounge carriage offering live music, a bar, and panoramic windows to admire the most incredible scenery.

Approximately four hours after departure from Cusco, you will arrive at the train station in Aguas Calientes (the town located at the bottom of Machu Picchu) from where you will take a bus to Machu Picchu. The ride will last around 30 mins. Meet your tour guide at the main entrance and enter the site for a private tour of the famous City of the Incas, Machu Picchu. After approximately 2 hours visiting Machu Picchu, you will have some free time to explore and take more pictures of this sacred place.

Now it's time to get back to Aguas Calientes to enjoy and explore the village. Your train back will depart in the late afternoon; you will be welcomed with a cocktail, and a gourmet menu dinner accompanied by the best wines and entertainment on board. Your driver will be waiting for you at the final stop of the train to take you back to your accommodation in Cusco.
