Good views and service. The ticket includes a drink and a quinoa pizza which were very nice. I think that the fashion show / trying to get people to buy some clothes was a bit of overkill.

We did the train from Ollantaytambo to Aguas Caliente and back to complete our MP trip. We caught the Vistadome on the way up. The train was great, we received a hot beverage with small sandwiches/snacks which we were not expecting. We were sitting on the left side of the train in the direction of travel, which was the best... More

We booked round trip to Aguas Calientes from Ollantaytambo. The ride up was very nice; spectacular scenery. Nice snacks (coffee, juices, tea, water, soft drinks) and two late morning sandwiches. The ride back was insane: the staff are required to model Peruvian woolen wear to captive tourists. While this probably is seen as a way to "shorten" the travel time... More

Spring for the Vistadome on your train ride to Machu Picchu and you will not be disappointed. Food was good, service was great and the VIEWS were to die for! So much to see from the raging river to the quaint farming communities and the ancient terraces. Seats were comfy and we had no complaints!

We travelled on the Vistadome to and from Machu Picchu. (Because it was the rainy season, the first part of the journey from Cusco to Ollantaytambo was by bus). The good: The train itself is very comfortable and the service is better than on most short-haul flights (you're served a small meal and a soft drink). Email correspondence while planning... More

The expedition instead of the vista dome is cheaper and just as nice. Vista dome is over rated and really not worth the added expense

We took the Vistadome train to Machu Picchu and really enjoyed the experience. Service was friendly and professional. The views out the expanded windows are beautiful all along the way. The occasional alert for the next point of interest was welcome, and not so often that it would be annoying. Just right overall, and we were happy with the experience.

I hiked the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu and took the Vistadome back. It was amazing! Well worth the extra money. The views out of the top and sides of the train cars were spectacular! We also had a delicious meal during the trip. The entertainment was fun to watch as well.

Considering the length of the journey from Olly to Machu Picchu (1.30) I was surprised at the price of the tickets but the service was excellent, the scenery something special and the snacks provided unexpected.3 great attendants, very enthusiastic and the fashion show on the return journey was great!
