What's included

Machu Picchu entrance (included)

The second step is to choose the day of your visit to Machu Picchu. This can be the same day of your trip or the next day. It depends on you. Remember that you can choose up to nine schedules in Machu Picchu: from 6 in the morning to 2 in the afternoon. Choose the one that suits your train journey and the experience you are looking for.

Bus ticket

Daily departures

The buses leave every day, from 5.30 in the morning until 5 in the afternoon. In the morning queues can form because that is when more tourists visit Machu Picchu. In the afternoons there are no queues. The buses leave approximately every 10 minutes. There is availability for all people.
