This is the worst of the three train options to get to Aguas Calientes and Machu Picchu. On the way to Machu Picchu we took the best option which is the Belmond Hiram Bingham train, which is by far the classiest and most luxurious. The second best option is the newer Peru Rail, and this Inca Rail is the worst of the three options. We took this on our ride back to Cusco and it was a noticeably different experience. I will say it is a lot cheaper than Hiram Bingham but you also don’t get the first class service like you do on that train. The seats on this train are very small and directly next to each other and surround a very small table. What bothered me the most though was there was a very limited baggage storage and this train rocked back-and-forth way more than the other train did. Also, it was not nearly as clean on the inside and you don’t get any food, at most you will get some coca tea, and some small cookies. There is no food service or anything like that. They do have a dome viewing car, but it was also very small. They have live music in the same viewing car, which was nice, but after taking the Hiram Bingham, this train was very underwhelming and a bit disappointing. I would not suggest taking it if you can afford the better trains. After our train return from Aguas Calientes to the Sacred Valley, we had to take a very tiny bus shuttle, only room for about 10 people, to Cusco, which took about two hours and of course there was no air conditioning and very small seats. I am 6’3” with broad shoulders so I really struggled to find room considering everything is made for people at Peruvian heights, which honestly means very small. This was the roughest part of our entire journey and I would not like to repeat it.


Great service. When I was returning from trip, other passenger took my bag by mistake. Norka called all taxi drivers and found my bag. She stayed with me until I get my bag. Thank you for the service


This was such a fun and super well coordinated experience! I loved it. I will highly recommend to all my friends and family. The service on the train from Edu and Angeles was top notch. Very professional and attentive. Loved it!


I ended up have the whole cart to myself. The service from David and Silvia was fantastic. And the performance and live music were so much fun even a little dance!!! They even played a Chinese song. That was so fun. And the view, wow. I even stepped out of the cart and enjoy the view at the balcony. The meal and drink provided were wonderful. Over all. I had the best time ever.


You definitely want to be in the 1st Class car. Great table linens, wine glasses, service, food, entertainment. The "parade" that accompanies you to boarding the train was total fun and unexpected. Just gets you in a happy mood. On the way there we had lunch which was delicious. Started with a pisco sour, and wine for those who wanted some. Three courses that were excellent—quinoa salad, trout and potato cake over elderberries, brownie dessert. The way back was a wonderful 3 course dinner with ample wine. Excellent service. Don’t miss the dedicated bar/entertainment car. There was music almost the entire trip, and a great bar ready to serve want you wanted. The only way to go to Machu Picchu.

It was one of the most unforgettable experiences of my life!!! The staff was awesome and professional!! Thank you for everything


First, the trainride with Incarail was amazing! The day before we booked our train tickets easily at the counter in Aguas Calientes. They had enough space, so it was very easy to get the ticket and even the right side on the train. At the day we entered on time the train and felt very comfortable at the train. Both train attendants we had were amazing, welcomend us on board and were very polite. Then our trouble began: 2 minutes before departure we noticed that we forget our AirPods in the hotelroom in Aguas Calientes. We hadn´t the chance to get off the train, because of the departure. We felt so upset and had no chance to contact the hotel becouse of no signal. Our wonderful train attendant *Judith* recognized that we felt very upset and very troubled. She was so attentive and asked whats wrong with us and helped us to calm down. Then she asked about our problem and took the initiative to contact our hotel. They only spoke spanish, so we also had no chance about that. Throughout the trainride she managed everything with the hotel! She drove the whole way back (throughout her working hours) from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Calientes, went to our hotel and picked up the AirPods. Then she came back to Ollantaytambo were we waited 6 hours and felt very comfortable in the Incarail lounge. She was our hero! We are so thankful to met this wonderful, friendly, polite, responsible and even professional (business) woman. She solved our problem at its best and thats why she saved our holiday. Thank you for everything and have a good time! Incarail & Judith 100%


Train was comfortable, staff was amazing. This train journey to Machupicchu was truly memorable! They have a nice fashion show selling the products on the way back. The items were really nice but there was not enough new stock to purchase, you basically buy what they wear in the show.


IncaRail is an exceptionally well organized and highly communicative company! The train experience was absolutely magical!! The balcony views were magnificent! I would DEFINITELY recommend this company as every aspect was professional and superb! Muchas Gracias!!


We booked train to visit Machu Picchu for beginning of February but had to cancel a week before due to the site being closed by the Peruvian Government due to all the street protests. After various emails, where Inca Rail were offering vouchers instead of refund, they finally agreed on January 26 to make a refund within 60 days. As the 60 days is approaching I sent an email to Inca Rail and got a response on March 18 saying that as they were still within the 60 days timeframe they would send an email once the refund is processed. So it just looks like to me they are deliberately holding on to customers money with no intention of returning it until the 60 days is almost up. Hardly good customer service is it ?
