I asked my hotel in Ollantaytambo for help in booking my tickets to MP. They have informed me that the government site does not work due to recent fraud-- has anyone else heard this? Specifically they said that I can make a reservation via that site but must pay for the tickets in Cusco in person. This is not an option for us.
They recommended two other avenues to book and purchase the tickets. One is a travel agent-- I am awaiting their response-- and the other is an online agency. I have looked at the online agency and it is SIGNIFICANTLY more expensive (cost per person would be $72 for just MP).
I am wondering if what the hotel has told me is indeed true. I would hate to pay almost double the cost.
