APT exclusive! The Hiram Bingham Train by Orient-Express

Journey from Machu Picchu to Cusco aboard the world-famous Hiram Bingham Train.

Experience the romance of rail, on what is truly the most luxurious way to travel between Cusco and Machu Picchu and is the icing on what is already an adventure which will stay with you forever.

Owned by Orient-Express, this opulent train is named after Hiram Bingham, an American explorer who discovered the lost Incan city of Machu Picchu. As you step into the 1920’s elegance of this incredible train, the sparkling crystal, charming upholstery, polished wood and the genuine courtesy of your attendants all set a special tone for the journey ahead. With just two dining cars, an observation bar car and a kitchen car, as well as deliberately reduced guest numbers, the entire experience is sure to feel remarkably intimate and indulgent.
