Boleto Turistico Cusco

First of all, there are 16 attractions you can visit with the ticket. You will find a list below. There are 4 different tours for which you will need the ticket: the City tour, the Valle Sur tour, the Maras Moray tour and the Valle Sagrado (Sacred Valley) tour. We recommend you to buy the boleto turistico general if you are planning to go on 2 or more of these tours. Or if you plan to go one 1 of these tours and visit the dance show and/or the museums. But if you are planning to do only the Valle Sagrado and the Maras Moray tour it is less expensive if you buy the boleto turistico – circuito 2.

If you decide to buy the boleto general be sure to plan your trips within a time span of 10 days, as the ticket is only valid for that long.

Is there a student discount available?

Yes, you can apply for a discount if you have a valid ISIC card and are under 25 years old. The Boleto General will cost 70 soles instead of 130 soles, and the partial ones will costs 40 soles instead of 70. If you are a student but you don´t have an ISIC card you can apply for one in Cusco. The office is on the main square at Portal de Panes 123 office 303. The student card will cost you about 35 soles, but it will give you a 20 USD discount on your Machu Picchu ticket and the discount on the boleto turistico. And you will probably obtain discounts in other places as well.
