Guided Machu Picchu Circuits

Guided Machu Picchu

The circuits for guiding in Machu Picchu are 5, these are designed to avoid crowds for our visitors and thus ensure the safety of the archaeological park and tourists. The circuits in Machu Picchu are distributed along the Inca citadel, starting at the control gate of the park and the different most important places in Machu Picchu.

The Ministry of Culture of Cusco has chosen to distribute the different circuits as follows:

  • If you book the ticket to Machu Picchu (general), then you have the option to choose between the circuits (1, 2, 3 or 4) at the time of entry to the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu.
  • If you book the ticket Machu Picchu + Wayna Picchu, Machu Picchu + Huchuy Picchu, you can only do the circuit 4.
  • If you book the ticket to Machu Picchu + Machu Picchu Mountain, then you must do circuit 3 only.
  • If you book the ticket to Inca trail + Machu Picchu, then you must do circuit 5 only.

If you want to visit 2 or more circuits you must purchase more than one ticket, remember that you are not allowed to re-enter Machu Picchu once you have left the park, and no entrance tickets are sold at the entrance gate of Machu Picchu.
