Inca Rail is a relatively new company, with the first trains departing for Machu Picchu in December 2009. Inca Rail trains offer daily services departing from Piscacucho and Ollantaytambo train stations in the Sacred Valley. Each train offers two types of service; Executive Class and First Class. All trains are air-conditioned and heated, with windows that offer UV protection. More information can be found at their website on at www.incarail.com.pe
The Executive Service has been created for those passengers that are looking for comfort and relaxation. Each car only carries fifty passengers and have comfortable seats each one with a front table and large panoramic window that allows you to enjoy the scenery of the Urubamba Valley. Snacks made free from preservatives, and natural beverages are also available to purchase.
In addition to all the amenities of the Executive Class, the exclusive First Class Service offers even greater comfort and space. With only 30 seats per car, the oversized plush seats have been carefully designed to assure passenger maximum comfort and relaxation.

This is a relatively new company, and is the only competitor to the more established Peru Rail, but we think that Inca Rail Trains offer another dimension for travel to Machu Picchu, and as a newcomer they are out to prove they are the best, with good trains and a high level of service
