The most important thing: entrance ticket to Machu Picchu directly from the government or from reliable agencies, to take into account that tickets are easily sold out, especially the Waynapicchu ticket followed by the llaqta ticket; In addition to the schedules, the last one being distributed in 9 schedules, how much do the Machu Picchu 2022 tickets cost? , What is the best ticket or which circuit should I choose?


As a second place, it is recommended to buy a train ticket, another of the tickets that are sold out especially in terms of schedules, it may be that if you buy at the last minute there is no longer the schedule that fits with your time of entry to Machu Picchu, for this reason you must buy with a prudent time like a month before that allows you to choose the best hours and prices.
There are only 2 train companies that you can buy directly that are Peru rail and Inca rail or from any other authorized travel agency

Point 4 would be the bus ticket, it refers to the minibus that takes you from Machu Picchu Pueblo to the Archaeological Center or Llaqta Machu Picchu, which takes 25 minutes to travel.
