The General ticket is a good deal, and in some cases even unavoidable. Some of the most impressive sites, including Sacsayhuaman, Pisaq, Ollantaytambo and Chinchero do not have individual entrance tickets and can only be visited by purchasing the Boleto Turistico. Some smaller sites such as Tipon and Moray can be visited on an individual entrance ticket.

 

Alternative option: “Circuitos”

The other options are are called “Circuitos” (circuits), and are a selection of the 16 sites. The price is 70 soles ($22,-) and the Circuitos tickets are valid for 1 or 2 days. The “Circuitos” can be a good option when you are short on time.

Discount and rules

If you have a valid ISIC card you can get a discount. For the Boleto General you pay 70 soles instead of 130 soles.
All circuito-tickets have a discount price of 40 soles (instead of 70 soles).
You can either purchase the International Student Card online, or buy the card for 35 soles in Cusco. The ISIC card no longer gives you a discount on your Machu Picchu entrance. Your student card from your University gives you discount on your Machu Picchu entrance.

To be clear, the Boleto Turistico does not include entrance to Machu Picchu. Neither does it include local guides or transport costs to the sites. The ticket is strictly personal, and can only be used once for every site. Your ticket is valid from the day you buy it.

 

Spanish course & Boleto Turistico

A great way to experience all the sites of this tourist ticket, is in combination with a Spanish language course.
Together with your teacher, and possibly other students, you will have outdoor classes while visiting the sites. This is a great way to learn Spanish and get to know more about the ancient Peruvian culture. As the general ticket is 10 days valid, it will require a minimum of 2 weeks Spanish to be able to visit the majority of the sites.
