Recently, most tourist actually do not explore entire pisac ruins, rather they only do ruins near the entrance, especailly Q’alla Q’asa. I recommend you to take a more than 30 minutes walk and pass through 10 m long tunnel and to see ceremonial places and ruins of pisaqa, as well as watch towers. Of course, the view of the valley...

Normally I do not sign up for tours, but was glad to have had a tour guide for my visit to Pisac. The explanation and commentary added a lot to my appreciation of the ruins.

Hiked from the town to the ruins. One of my best days in Peru! We had a tour guide who taught us about the local and historical culture. He was knowledgeable. My husband thought it was the highlight of our trip to pisac!

The Incan Ruins of Pisac are worth visiting if you are in the region of Cusco. They are situated northeast of Cusco city and are found along the Urubamba River. The ruins are situated on a terraced manmade terrain as you will see from the photos taken. There are also numerous valleys and the site of the ruins are not... More

We went on an all day trip to the valley by taxi. Pisac's Inca settlement and terraces sprawl along the hillside and have great views at every turn. It was our first visit in the Sacred Valley and was a stunning introduction to Inca stone craft and agricultural terraces. It's a bit of a maze and is great fun to... More

For me the main point of interest in Pisac is the tombs across the small canyon from the site, and while this is one thing that sets Pisac apart from many of the other sites, that does not mean that I think anyone should go see these and leave. Pisac has several nice walks that can be taken depending on... More

These are really interesting Inca ruins. The terraces are amazing and hearing about how they were used to test how optimise crop growth was fascinating. The hike up to the buildings at the very top is fairly strenuous but worth it if you take your time and have several rests on the way up.

The Pisac ruins are worth making the trek from Cusco to visit. The ruins are much larger than what you'll see at Machu Picchu and provide excellent views of the Sacred Valley and colonial town of Pisac. The terracing alone is impressive, not to mention the watchtowers, temple and living sites. We spent almost 2 hours walking around the ruins... More
