As train journeys go this one is short but very sweet. Explore the land of the Incas from the elegant surroundings of the luxury blue and gold Hiram Bingham train as it travels up from Cusco to Aguas Calientes for the transfer to the magical Machu Picchu ruins. The train is named after the first European explorer to discover the site in 1911. Fellow guests in the Pullman cars, designed in 1920s style, range from South Americans with drug dealer sunglasses to well-heeled day-trippers. To end your trip in the style to which you've now become accustomed The Luxury Travel Bible suggest an overnight stay at the luxurious Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge overlooking the ruins so you can see the ancient citadel by moonlight. You'll also beat the crowds to the ruins the next morning.
