Buying entrance tickets to Machu Picchu - online not working

Jump to last reply

Attempting to buy Machu Picchu entrance tickets online through the official website, but getting 'operation denied' for over a week now. Not my Visa, as 'Visa Verified' is saying that 'all of Peru' is having problems with Visa Verified, and the ticketing office is saying just 'try again later'. Any advice on how often the website actually works?
I don't want to wait until we get to Peru (1st week of April - week before Easter) to have tickets in hand. Is there an alternate way of purchasing tickets ahead of time, and what is a good way of getting them?
