In 1911, an explorer named
Hiram Bingham climbed up a steep hill and stumbled onto Machu Picchu, the
Incas' best kept secret. The World was stunned by his discovery, and the
Orient Express luxury train service between Cuzco and Machu Picchu, is
named after the American explorer who discovered the stunning ruins of
the ancient citadel.
The train leaves from Cuzco
at the more leisurely hour of 09:00 in the morning taking a spectacular
journey through a changing landscape while guests enjoy breakfast. After
the steep climb out of Cuzco, the train descends into the Sacred Valley,
passing lush fields and colorful villages in the foothills of the Andes.
Its distinctive blue and gold livery and elegant interior upholstery, consists
of only 4 cars - 2 dining cars, a bar car and a kitchen car, and can carry
up to 84 passengers The price of the journey includes all onboard meals
with wine, entertainment, guides, bus transfers, entrance to the Ruins
and afternoon tea at Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge.
The journey is highlighted
by wonderful vistas of the mountains and the beautiful Urubamba River which
runs through the Sacred Valley. On arrival at 12:00 noon in the village
of Aguas Calientes at the foot of Machu Picchu, guests are taken by private
bus to the Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge for lunch, which overlooks the
ancient citadel. A private fully guided tour of the citadel follows .The
arrival at Machu Picchu at 12.30pm gives passengers the advantage of entering
the Sanctuary at an hour when the majority of the visitors are already
beginning to leave for their journey back to Cuzco. This not only gives
the opportunity to experience the ancient citadel at Machu Picchu in relative
solitude, but also with a longer period of time there, and passengers only
return to the train as the sun goes down before the return transfer to
the station in the early evening. Once back on board for a 6.30pm departure,
pre-dinner cocktails are served in the bar accompanied by live entertainment
before passengers enjoy a 4-course, gourmet à la carte dinner, in
the dining cars. The train pulls into Poroy station in Cuzco at 10pmOnce
