Legs a little sore from hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu? Does the thought of a bus leave you somewhat wanting? BusinessInsider.com has a feature about a luxury train that travels from Cuzco to Machu Picchu. The luxury Orient-Express Hiram Bingham train is a six hour round trip. You can even make a day trip to the spiritual site if you are pressed for time!
