Normally you don't need much help in Ollantaytambo as you probably have your tickets to Machu Picchu already sorted out and you see the ruins from almost everywhere in the village so you will never get lost. Anyway you may want to have a map...More

Located at Calle Principal, near main square. This is basically a tourist information center. Do not expect to get much information if you do not speak Spanish. But the staff was nice and friendly.

Went here in June 2015. Not sure if anyone spoke English when I was there. I just pointed to the ticket package that I wanted and then paid for it. Great location Great ruins.

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.

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.
