You cannot traverse the Peruvian landscape to Machu Picchu in more style, luxury, and romantic charm than by the Hiram Bingham train.

Named after the man who discovered the Incan hilltop citadel in 1911 and owned by Orient Express, you are driven to Poroy station just outside Cusco to board the exclusive blue and gold painted carriages and for just over three hours you are resplendently transported to Aguacalientes, the town beneath the ruins.

Aboard, the 1920s Pullman carriages reflect the opulence of the locomotive era bedecked in polished brass, wood panels and rich, comfy seating. There is also a period observation car at the rear.

Brunch on the outward journey and dinner on your return are included. These are taken in the very elegant dining car replete with white-linen tablecloths, clinking crystal, and you are looked after by the smartest team of waiters. Whilst feasting on fine Peruvian cuisine the steamy forest scenery unfolds right in front of you and there is a great bar car that often has live music on the return leg, or you can just simply relax into a snug armchair in one of the carriages.

Escorted to the Lost City of the Incas there is a small-group guided tour included, but for those who would like a more exclusive visit we can easily arrange a private one for you.
