The Hiram Bingham 5 star train, one of three rail journeys that Goway offers, won the Condé Nast Traveler award in the category for Specialist Train Operators. Named after the explorer who rediscovered Machu Picchu 100 years ago, the Hiram Bingham seats 84 passengers and provides first-class service between Cusco and Machu Picchu. This train is one of our most popular choices for day trips or overnight visits to Machu Picchu,” states Don Forster, Product & Marketing Manager for Goway’s Latin America division.
The luxury train consists of two dining cars, a bar and a kitchen car, and reflects the vintage style of the 1920′s. Once on board, passengers are treated to an authentic Andean-inspired menu, featuring seasonal Peruvian ingredients, and will have a chance to enjoy traditional Pisco Sours and a live band playing Andean music as the train travels through the Peruvian highlands.
Goway offers numerous itineraries that incorporate the Hiram Bingham train to Machu Picchu such as the all encompassing 13 day Comfort Peru from $2,820, the short but comprehensive 7 day Heart of the Incas from $1,377 and their most popular option 2 day Machu Picchu by Train from $604.
