Machu Picchu Practicalities

Machu Picchu tourists

To visit Machu Picchu you’ll need to get there using a train and bus and buy tickets to the site that co-ordinate with your arrival time.

For transport, you’ll find all the necessary info here on the The Machu Picchu train, and the The Machu Picchu bus as well as a cost-saving alternative approach: Machu Picchu via Santa Teresa.

Finally bear in mind that when you buy Machu Picchu Tickets you’ll need to commit to a combination of Circuits and Extra Hikes.
