MACHU PICCHU Express JOURNEYS

 

One of the new Seven Wonders of the World, Machu Picchu is located in the most stunning setting, high above the Urubamba river in the middle of a tropical mountain forest. It is surely the most impressive and fantastic creations of the 15th century Inca empire. No matter how many photos you have seen of the citadel, nothing will compare to actually visiting the site and feeling and seeing the original Inca stone work while learning all about Inca construction techniques, history, religion, astronomy and culture.

Let us take care of your entrance and bus tickets to Machu Picchu! Due to Machu Picchu's popularity, the local government has decided to increase the level of protection for Machu Picchu making sure that the site is duly protected for the years and visitors to come. Therefore, the INC, the governing body that manages Machu Picchu has implemented some new regulations that take place from July 1 onward. The most important change that has been announced is the fact that entrance tickets will now have a time limit and have to be purchased for one of the two allotted time slots. These slots are: 6am to 12pm and 12pm to 5:30pm.
