I had seen a lot of positive reviews on Tripvisor about the "Sacred Valley, Pisac and Ollantaytambo Full-Day Tour from Cusco" and that's why I booked it through Viator. I missed the ruins completely but was brought to the Pisac market instead. In a sense, it's my fault because I had noticed a reviewer suggesting to have "Pisac ruins" on... More

Wow! What a spectacular view! Our bus dropped us off close to the top. We had to walk up quite a bit but the rest of the trip was all downhill. I walked 12,370 steps, 6 miles and climbed 47 sets of stairs. This is not a hike for someone that is out of shape. Going downhill is not a... More

An abandoned village. The Spanish didn't want to climb so they ordered the farming village to relocate at the bottom of the mountain--so it is the only ruins of an intact village, untouched since it was abandoned. I walked down the mountain back to Pisaq--took about 2 hours and a bit.

Amazing ruins and a very interesting walk down the mountain that leads you into the market in Pisac (which is a fabulous market with better prices and goods than in Cusco).

We really loved this experience, although in reading other's reviews I see that went about it quite differently from some who were disappointed. We did not come to Pisac for the town, we did not come to Pisac for the market. We came to hike the ruins, and we loved it. We took a taxi from Cusco (by the day,... More

We saw this place on a side trip when visiting the Pisac market. It is not as impressive as Machu Picchu, but still a lovely place to visit. It does not take nearly as long to see,but it is much easier to get to. And almost as impressive. Definitely worth visiting.

The ruins are quite interesting but they can get very crowded - both getting up and down to the enterance by car or bus, and inside the actual sight. The ruins of houses that you can see here are the same type as those in Machu Picchu. What differs is the graveyard which is uniq to this sight in the... More

The ruins are high above Pisac town and tourists tend to stay at the market place. The ruins are however fantastic and lie scattered in bigger area. Nice walking opoortunities.

We stopped here on our way from Cusco to Ollantaytambo on our first day in the Scared Valley. Unfortunately, we didn't get to walk around as extensively as we had wanted because we were affected by lack of sleep and altitude sickness. The ruins were impressive and I wish we had been well enough to hire a guide to take... More

THis rates as one of the best ruins we saw in Peru. With our guide, Maria, we learned about the ancient Incans. Could see their way of life, of burial, of families, of agriculture, of religion and worship. Their longevity belies the fact that regular exercise makes for a healthy and long life. These people would grow their food in... More
