Transformers: Rise of the Beast Filming At Machu Picchu

It seems that filming of Transformers: Rise of the Beasts has gone from Montreal to New York and now is at Machu Picchu in Cusco, Peru.  Its possible that second unit might be filming elsewhere but since the film's stars Dominique Fishback and Anthony Ramos are on set, this is likely involves first unit and the film's director Steven Caple, Jr.  

Also interesting is the filming has to work around the tourists at the location as the site was not shut down to allow for filming.  As a result we get some videos to watch. You can use CC button and Setting button to get a text translation of the videos but they are not really telling you anything informative about the filming.

In addition, Optimus Prime truck was spotted arriving in Cusco (3rd video below) indicating that whatever is being filmed here is central to the story.  

The last video is one that popped up online from Montreal that shows various Mirage/Jazz parking and filming a scene. There is often several copies of a car to meet specific purposes. One might be a stunt car configured for the stunts, another is usually the "hero" vehicle that is the primary car whose purpose is to just look great on camera, another might be rigged for attaching camera so film the actors, another might be rigged to flip, and so on.
