Train Tickets for Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca

View Peru offers all of the train tickets you could need on your trip to Peru. The only way to get to Machu Picchu, other than hiking the Inca Trail, is to take a train.

The Expedtion Train is the cheapest option for travel to Machu Picchu. It departs in the morning both from Cusco and from Ollantaytambo which is close to the Aguas Calientes destination.

The Vistadome Train is the superior option from the Expedition, as it has claimed better views and more windows for viewing. It is a little bit more expensive than the Expedition. It also departs from both Cusco and Ollantaytambo.

The Hiram Bingham Train is the most luxurious, exclusive way to travel in Peru. You will enjoy its elegant cars and comfortable seating. The train serves full course meals, as well as cocktails and a live show in the evening. It does not stop in Ollantaytambo or anywhere along the way, so you have to take it directly from Cusco.

View Peru also sells tickets for the train to Puno (Lake Titicaca).

An amazing way to scale the Peruvian alitplano and see the amazing scenery along the way is by taking the Andean Explorer Train to Puno on the shores of Lake Titicaca. Along the way you will see wildlife in their natural habitats as well as have unending vast views of the high-altitude plain. The train makes a stop at the highest point in the journey. Note, this train only runs Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday.

View Peru’s price for train tickets includes the train ticket chosen, our travel agency fee, and the taxes and credit card processing fee.
