Culture & History
Sitting comfortably aboard the opulent train, travel along the very same route that the American explorer, Hiram Bingham, took in 1911 when he discovered the lost Peruvian Inca settlement, Machu Picchu - now the best-know archaeological site on the continent. The once-in-a-lifetime journey includes an exclusive transfer to Machu Picchu and an invaluable tour through the ancient gates, plazas and temples, followed by a delicious Afternoon Tea served at Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, which is perfectly located overlooking the iconic UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Perfectly recreating the 1920s 'Golden Age' of luxury train travel, Hiram Bingham's gorgeous blue and gold Pullman-style carriages are fitted out in elegant wood-panelling and brass fixtures, and can carry up to eighty-four passengers. The elegant dining carriages are lined with brocade upholstery and filled with white linen-clad tables replete with crystal glasses and silver cutlery, allowing you to travel through Peru, and its captivating history, in style.
