Municipal Tourist Info. with maps and good information

Just off the main plaza. You can get maps, directions, suggestions. They'll outline some short, self directed walks into the surrounding countryside. Very nice, good English.

If you after a map this is the place for you, otherwise do you homework before you get here. Unhelpful staff as far as we were concerned which is a shame because at all other places we have visited they were so helpful.

Went to get a map and they were out. Asked when they would have more. They said they didn't know. They are not helpful and act rather put out when you ask a question. Information Center, not hardly.

We received good information from the people in this office, they organised a very reliable and friendly taxi driver to drive us to Moray & Salinas. His name was Jesus Gerrado Calcino Yana. Jesus acted as a tour guide and provided us with plenty of relevant information on various sites, etc

Do not expect a lot of information. This is just a guy sitting at a desk handing out a local map. Do your own research before you arrive.

Didn't expect much, and therefore wasn't disappointed :) The only useful thing they provide is a good map of the area, and that only is worth a visit (since you're already around...)

The staff here were not all that interested in helping us although there was noone else there at the time. Gave us the basic information but were not friendly.

The title says it all - sometimes unattended. When it is the person seems reluctant to give out info. The place is also used for other functions so it can get crowded but not for tourism reason.

It would be completely useless if they didn't provide a map of the town and area, which is helpful during your stay. The young girls there were unfriendly and gave out a rack of misinformation about the tourist ticket and prices. Too bad-our only negative encounter during our stay in Peru.

Lots of good i formation is provided at this center. And if you are traveling around the Sacred Valley for a few days, as we did, you can buy an entrance pass to most of the valley's attractions.
