Machu Picchu is very popular for representing one of the most impressive expressions of architecture and engineering of the Inca civilization.  

Their structures form a perfect balance between nature and the indigenous people. 

Peru government launched new website for booking Machu Picchu entry tickets in 2019. Although it appears they eliminated the morning and afternoon ticket option and replaced with an hourly entry time, the morning entry tickets are valid for entry anytime in the morning, from the hour you selected up to 12 Noon. You choose the hour you want to enter. 

Do you want to buy your Machu Picchu tickets in advance? But do not you know how? Keep reading! Here we will tell you how to get your Machu Picchu tickets 2019 on the Official Site, and give you some basic tips so that nothing will take you by surprise.  

 

How to buy Machu Picchu tickets 2019 throught the New Official Site 

The general idea for the new hourly entry times is to distribute visitors to avoid congestion mainly in the early morning. There's no intention to rigidly adhere to entering at the exact time of your ticket. You can enter anytime after the hour stamped on your ticket. But you cannot enter even 1 minute earlier than the time on your ticket. You can enter any time after the time of your ticket up to 12N for morning tickets. And use your tickets for entry after 12 noon, no later than 3PM. 

Some websites are saying that the tickets are only good for one hour inside the ruins. That is simply not true. The hourly entry affects the time you enter not how long you stay. A normal guided tour can be 2-3 hours. Once you exit, you cannot re-enter.
