My family of five is interested in traveling on a luxury train from Puno to Cusco on July 31, 2017. I am super confused about how to make sure I am booking on a luxury train. I see the Hiram Bingham Luxury train as well as the PeruRail Andean Explorer . Which one is an all day journey from Puno to Cusco that is "out of this world wonderful" as the reviews say? I don't mind paying the $$ as long as I am booking the luxury train. Help?

Does the price for Andean Explorer from Puno to Cusco is the same as if you are taking train from Cusco to Puno? In previous years it was cheaper. Now when I'm checking Perurail site it shows the same. Any advice appreciated.

No the price from Cusco to Puno is more than double the price for travel from Puno to Cusco.
