"Excellent fashion show with a view"
The trip was excellent. The view and experience was out of this world. The highlight of the trip was the fashion show put on by Mavilla N and Felipe. They used the aisle of the train as their runway fashion show and showcased fine fashion from Peru.

Train experience was fun and entertaining. Luis, Rosalia, and all of the staff was kind and inclusive. They danced and sang and made sure to get everyone involved to make the train ride and the time pass quickly. 10/10 experience

"Old school journey to Machu Pichu"
We joined the train at Ollantaytambo, bound for Machu Pichu. When the train arrived, we were met by the train staff and shown to our seats. We had a delightful journey. We started with a Buck’s Fizz, and had wine with our 3 course meal.
