  1. AM Entrance, from 6 am 12 pm.
  2. PM Entrance, from 11 am 17.30 pm.
Visitors must leave the site within the time frame stated, and can not re-enter once visitors have left the site. Visitors and guides who dont enter and leave within the time frame stated, will be assisted to the exit by the competent authorities! You have been warned.

  • For the full day tour, the start time counts from the moment we make the check-in in Machupicchu. Thant means if we enter at 9:am, we can be in the park until 13:00pm which is enough time to visit the Amazing Machupicchu.

    As a solo traveler’s first time in Peru, it can be daunting to figure out the logistics of getting from Cusco to Machu Picchu. Fortunately all my concerns and worries were all put to the rest with Fabricio and Franklin guiding me throughout the day. As I researched on TripAdvisor, one concern I had was getting lost in the shuffle from my tour operator transferring from car to train to bus to get to Machu Picchu. This was never the case here and I always felt safe and looked after. Franklin was an amazing driver and I always felt safe on the road and him behind the wheel. He even went above and beyond knowing that I didn’t have a face shield (which is mandatory on the train) and purchasing one for me at the train stop. It’s the little things like this that makes you feel taken care of. I can’t say enough good things about Fabricio as my tour guide throughout the day. From the moment he picks you up from the train stop, he made sure to give the rundown of the itinerary and answer any questions I might have. At Machu Picchu, not only was he extremely knowledgeable but he also knew all the lesser known spots to take amazing photos of Machu Picchu. Without Fabricio, I would have glossed over a lot of what Machu Picchu has to offer. On the return trip back to Cusco, he waited with me at the train stop and on the car ride back even purchased a corn snack to share the local delicacies with me. Again its the little things like this that separates the good tour operators from the great. Fabricio and Franklin made my day trip to Machu Picchu an unforgettable one with their punctuality, care and professionalism. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants a tailored tour to Machu Picchu that is fully dedicated to you.

    Very professional service and focused on details to make it an overall great experience. Everything was taken care of - tickets, transportation, meal, etc - which was great for me as I was on short time (2-day trip). The team is great, friendly and open to your needs/concerns.

    Simply all of it! All the handlers and tour guide were extremely helpful friendly and very informative. The weather gods also helped a little. Was a beautiful day and an incredible experience. I have wanted to do this since I saw pictures in National Geographic when I was about 3 YO. Amazing

    Booked this one day tour because we had limited time in Cusco. Everything went perfectly despite all the logistics involved. Fredi had all our tickets and resverations booked and printed out in nice packets. Everything was organized to a t. Our guide at machu picchu, Fabrizio, was amazing. So nice, knowledgeable, and was very patient as he took all sorts of photos for us - all of which turned out great. Highly recommend you won't be disappointed.

    Flawless guided tour. Michael was knowledgeable to everything about Machu Picchu/Incas/Peru. Our guide also happened to be an incredible photographer and absolutely nailed all the shots. He knew where to position us and what locations were prime. Bring bug spray and sunscreen.

    Michael led our group of 5 to tour Machu Picchu. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. He made sure to answer each of our questions and taught us a lot about the ruins & Incan history. Would highly recommend!
