Hiram Bingham named as the best trip in 2008

In an article titled “Custom-made Luxury, Adventure and Vacations” in the september edition Italian magazine Class, the trip to Machu Picchu aboard the Hiram Bingham Train operated by PeruRail, was classified as the “Best Trip of 2008” in the world.

The Hiram Bingham is a luxury train between Cusco and Machu Picchu. The train carries passengers on a spectacular journey through the changing landscapes and wonderful vistas of the beautiful Andes.
Departing from Poroy Station (a 20 minute taxi ride from Cusco) the Hiram Bingham gives a more leisurely start to the day than traditional departures. Brunch is served on board and guides are present to explain points of interest en route.
Upon arrival at Machu Picchu there will be a guided tour of the Machu Picchu citadel for you and entry tickets will have been pre-purchased.
After exploring the ruins, Afternoon Tea is served at the Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge, located just steps from the ancient citadel.
Once back on board, pre-dinner cocktails are served, accompanied by live entertainment and a 4-course gastronomic menu.
