I can not count up the number of times I have visited the http://www.machupicchu.gob.pe/ website trying to purchase Machu Picchu tickets over the past 4 months but it would be hundreds and it has been super frustrating and stressful. Visiting Machu Picchu is the main reason we are going to South America so getting tickets was a high priority for us.
I sent my first email to Jessica on 14 March and after a couple more emails and having trouble with my Western Union payment I received my tickets today 17 March. YIPPEEEEEEEE.
Jessica provided a very efficient and quick service. I only wished I had done this last November and it would have saved me all that stress and time trying to purchase tickets. The other thing to consider is that here in Australia we are 13 hours in front of Cusco so that meant it took longer for emails to be replied to.
Jessica processed the details, after she received the payment from Western Union, and then sent me an email telling me how to print the tickets off from the www.machupicchu.gob.pe/ website.
Of course Jessica charges a bit more for tickets to cover her time and costs but I would say it is totally worth it.
These are her current prices:
We have two ways to charge the tickets. According to this, the price varies
1) by visa (the price is higher due to the credit card commission and Peruvian taxes)
2) by western Union (this is fast and cheap).
We do not work with pay pal system.
The price per person for ONLY Machu Picchu is:
By visa USD$ 74.00
By western Union USD$ 64.00
The price per person for Machu Picchu - Huayna Picchu (two shifts: 07:00 am / 10:00 am – subject to availability) ticket is
By visa USD$ 84.00
By western Union USD$ 74.00
The price per person for Machu Picchu – Machu Picchu Mountain (Schedule from 07:00 to 10:00 – subject to availability) ticket is
By visa USD$ 80.00
By western Union USD$ 70.00
Prices are subject to change according to the exchange rate of soles (Peruvian currency) to dollars.
