Machu Picchu new entry rules

In July new rules we implimented controlling the entry and the way you explore Machu Piccu, Peru. 

From July 01, 2017, and for a period of 2 years, entrance tickets to Machu Picchu are now split into 2 entrance times.

AM Entrance, from 6 am – 12 pm.

PM Entrance, from 12 pm – 5.30 pm.

Visitors must leave the site within the time frame stated, and cannot re-enter once visitors have left the site. Visitors and guides who do not enter and leave within the time frame stated, will be asked to make way to the exit by the members of staff. One of the biggest changes is the ruling is all visitors must now take a guide. Guides must be official Machu Picchu guides or licensed tourist guides. They must present up-to-date and valid guide identification on entering Machu Picchu. Our guides need to sign in and sign out all visitors in his/her group. The guides will also be responsible for informing visitors of the regulations of the park.

The new rules define 3 circuits which visitors can take around Machu Picchu and these must be abided by, our guide will ensure you stay on the correct route. The route that you take will be defined when purchasing the ticket, We at Peruvian Secrects ensure you have the most interesting routes when we purchase your tickets. Each circuit takes an average 2h 30 mins to 3 hours to complete with your private guide. The circuits are marked with ropes, Circuit 1, is the classic route and the most challenging from a physical perspective. It first takes in the upper-sector of the citadel, before heading in a large loop around to the lower-sector. Circuits 2 & 3, visit the mid and lower-sectors, and are more suitable for those who want a more relaxing visit. If you have a preference just let us know before we make the booking.

To date none of our clients have felt it affected their experience as we mainly provide an overnight stay in order to be the first into Machu Picchu, all our services come with a private guide and we deal with getting your permits.
