Am finally at the stage of fine tuning our family trip and trying to keep costs down as much as possible. After overnighting in Ollayentambo, we will be catching the Vistadome to Machu Picchu arriving around 12.10pm. After leaving our luggage at the hotel, we plan to get the bus up to Machu Picchu for the afternoon and we will go up again very early the following morning for probably half a day.
What I would like to know is:
What time does Machu Picchu close and is there always a long line for the last bus down?
Can we purchase entry tickets in Ollayentambo and do we need to pay in local currency?
Is there a combined bus/entry ticket or or they separate?
Do we need to purchase two separate entry tickets (one for each day) or is one ticket valid for 2 days?
I realise that much of this info is on TA, but I would like to have up to date information in case things have changed.
Thanks for all your help.
