Riding the Luxury Hiram Bingham Train to Machu Picchu, an Inca trail tour in style!

Machu Picchu is located on the edge of the Amazon Jungle and is one of Peru’s top tourist attractions. Named as a New Wonder of the World in 2007 and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983, the lost Inca citadel draws many thousands of international visitors every year. A great experience is to travel to Machu Picchu onboard the Hiram Bingham…

In 1911, Hiram Bingham - the famous America Explorer and Yale University lecturer - set out on an expedition in Southern Peru to find the City of Patiti – the last known strong hold of the Inca’s. Deep in the Vilcanota Valley, pheasant farmers took Hiram to mountaintop settlement hidden by dense overgrown Jungle. 

What Hiram Bingham found was not what he was searching for, but actually something far greater – the lost Inca Citadel of Machu Picchu.

Nowadays, a train named in the honor of Hiram Bingham offers an exclusive journey to the famous Sanctuary of Machu Picchu. Operated by the Orient Express Group, passengers can enjoy a once-in-a-life-time journey travelling across epic Andean scenery from the Andean City of Cusco to the lost Inca citadel.

Painted in deep blue with gold livery, the Hiram Bingham Train includes 2 dining cars, a kitchen car and a bar/observatory car. The train which can carry a maximum capacity of 84 passengers is decked out with oversized comfortable seats, tables draped in crispy white tablecloths and an abundance of highly polished brass fittings and fixtures.

The price of the ticket includes welcome drinks and dancers, gourmet cuisine, a free bar and live on-board entertainment.

Passengers can also take advantage of highly knowledgeable Hiram Bingham guides and afternoon tea at the Orient Express Sanctuary Lodge Hotel (the only hotel located at Machu Picchu).

Tickets for this exclusive luxury Peru train ride start from US$ 750 per person. If you would like to receive more info, just fill out the form next to this article. Enjoy Peru!
