Tour to Machu Picchu

Fullday

Description Machu Picchu Inca Citadel

Important: In the last couple of years the government has limited the number of visitors to Machu Picchu to just 2500 people per day. Tickets are no longer on sale at the entrance to Machu Picchu so to avoid disappointment it is essential that visitors purchase their Machu Picchu entrance tickets in advance either in Cusco (still ok during the low season) or much further in advance (during the high seaon June, July & August) either online directly with the government or authorized ticket agent or by booking a package tour. In 2014 there were a couple of weeks in August when the entrance tickets sold out 3 or 4 days in advance so visitors who arrived in Cusco hoping to buy tickets to visit Machu Picchu for the following days were disappointed not to be able to obtain tickets (disappointed is putting it mildly!). Names and passport numbers are needed in order to buy a ticket and these details are checked at the entrance to Machu Picchu and cannot be changed once the ticket has been issued. Therefore when the tickets have sold out they have really sold out. Companies can't buy up all the tickets with the intention of selling them on since they need real names and passport numbers to buy the tickets. There is no black market for entrance tickets since they cannot be resold or transferred to other people. As more people realise that it is important to buy their entrance tickets in advance more of them will be doing it and the tickets are likely to sell out even further in advance. Luckily now you know, so make sure it's not you who visits Peru but doesn't get to visit Machu Picchu
