Visitor numbers to Machu Picchu are restricted to 2500 people per day, even less if you want to explore Huayna Picchu or Machu Mountain with only 400 per day.
Planning ahead and booking tickets to Machu Picchu is a complicated process as the official tickets are issued by the Peru Ministry of Culture only.
The official website struggles to function, only reservations can be made online, and payment is due within 6 hours, something that cannot be completed on the official website, only locally through registered banks and tourist offices. After 6 hours the reservations are released
I wanted to do both Macchu Picchu and Huayna Picchu, I didn’t want to wait for the last chance opportunity to visit. After many tries and research, I found excellent online service, Ticket-Machupicchu.com, that will buy the tickets on your behalf (for a small surcharge), tickets to Macchu Picchu, the easy way to book in advance.
You are required to provide the date along with your passport name and number, as this will be checked upon entry onto Machu Picchu. In fact, you need an entry ticket just to buy a ticket for the bus up to the site.
The booking process is easy and professional, they even have an online chat should you have any queries about ordering. Payment can be made online and you will be sent an email to track your order. It takes approximately 30 days to issue, but you will be informed by email along with a link to print your pass/entry – this can also be confirmed by checking your ticket with the official government website.
Relief. I’m going to Macchu Picchu and Huayna Picchu with a 7 am time slot. Planning ahead ensures my entry. If your struggling to buy tickets Ticket-Machupicchu.com is the easy way to book your ticket in advance.
