Machu Picchu is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and for very good reason. Don’t worry about the crowds, a visit there is one of the most amazing experiences of a lifetime. It has, unfortunately, gotten a bit expensive over the years and the costs for Entrance, Bus ticket, and Train ticket have all tripled in recent years. In addition, beginning in 2018 it is now required to have a licensed guide. That said, most people agree it is worth the cost and remains one of the most awe-inspiring places on the planet.

We do offer a 1 day package to Machu Picchu, because despite their high prices it still remains a logistical challenge to buy the Entrance, Bus, and Train tickets online or even in person. We have a simple, transparent pricing structure. We charge $39 per person, total, to purchase all 3 of the different needed tickets on your behalf and immediately send them to you electronically. We often have to send someone down to the physical office to get the tickets in person, as well as cover the costs involved in transferring money internationally, and also into a different currency.

Base cost to visit Machu Picchu is:  $47 entrance ticket, $24 bus ticket (in theory its optional, but its a long walk up or down to the site), and the least expensive 1 day train ticket is $128, for a total price of $199. That is the actual cost of the tickets if you were to buy them yourself, we charge $39 total per person to get all 3 tickets, for a total of $238 per person. That is for your entrance ticket, round trip bus ticket, and round trip train ticket. For just the Machu Picchu entrance ticket only, the cost is $25 per person to get the ticket; for ticket purchases of 3 people or more the cost is only $18 per person.

That is the cheapest MP general entrance-only ticket, and the cheapest train ticket possible, which means the least convenient train times (depart Ollantaytambo at 6:10am, and return at 11:30pm). There are other, more convenient train times, but they all cost more. How much more, depends on the specifics.  You can see complete train schedule and pricing here:  www.PeruRail.com  You simply select whichever inbound/outbound train you prefer and add the extra difference (from $128) to the cost of your trip.

There are optional side hike tickets inside of the park of Machu Picchu, called Huayna Picchu Mountain, or Machu Picchu Mountain. Those tickets cost $20 extra (or, $67 total) on top of the base cost as outlined above.

Thus, our 1 day Machu Picchu trip cost $238 per person, and includes a basic General Entrance ticket to Machu Picchu, a roundtrip bus ticket, and a roundtrip train ticket between Ollantaytambo and Machu Picchu.

There are numerous options to upgrade, such as spending the extra $20 to climb either Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Mountain, as well as more convenient train times, adding a private, English speaking guide or adding an extra night’s stay in the small town of Aguas Calientes. An English speaking, licensed guide for between 3 to 4 hours is $99 and that is a flat rate that can be divided among up to 8 people. For just one or two people, the cost is the same: $99.
