Boleto turistico need-to-know

The Boleto Turistico only grants access to attractions and does not include transportation or guides. This means you’ll have to book your tours of Cusco or the Sacred Valley, so when you do, be sure to ask if the price includes the cost of your Boleto Turistico choice.

There are several purchase location options for your Cusco Tourist Ticket.

  • The entrance of the principal archeological sites
  • The government and tourist building on Avenida Sol 103 in Cusco offers advanced ticket purchase
  • Selected tourist offices
  • Authorized travel agencies.

Because U.S. dollars and bank cards are not accepted, be sure to bring Peruvian Soles to pay for your ticket. Each ticket is stamped with its dates of validity at the time of your purchase and authorization. Note that tickets are not refundable or extendable and that each attraction can only be visited once within the allotted time frame.

You will need to carry identification (ID or a copy of your passport) along with your ticket to be allowed entrance to the various attractions.
