Visited the Pisac Ruins during our trip to Peru. We visited the ruins after visiting Machu Picchu and hiking the Inca trail and they were still very interesting. They are very large. Recommend taking a taxi to the top of the ruins and then hiring a guide once you are inside.

If you ask yourself if you should visit Pisac market and ruins wonder no longer it's a must. Skip the generic tour and rent a taxi if you are up for a hike. The front desk at your hotel can recommend someone trustworthy. It's not only more private but also cheaper. We spend $100 for the whole day. We could... More

You need a taxi to get there (25 soles) allow 2 hours at least. Fantastic views up and down the valleys. I did not get to the top but it did not matter.

On a tour of this site, I learned so much about Incan architecture and the historical background correlated with how they constructed their buildings. The views from this place are stunning beyond description.

The ancient town of Pisaq is different from the colonial town, and I recommend seeing both (they're 10 minutes apart). The ancient town has beautiful terraces and well maintained structures to walk around. There are street vendors just outside of the entrance that sell water and other trinkets. There are lots and lots of tour buses and guides, so be... More

Interesting site. It's not as interesting as Machu Picchu but there are way less people so you have lots of space to explore. The views of the surrounding areas/villages are breath taking.

In planning for our three week trip to Peru, I had imagined that the Pisac Market would be a highlight. I visualized colorful displays of fruit and goods only to find blue tarped tables with all of the same trinkets found throughout our trip. The highlight turned out to be the Inca ruins just outside of town. From its perch... More

These ruins are a great example of a very well planed irrigation system along with terraced hillsides, homes you can still walk through, old tombs still visible on the mountainside and of course awesome views of the valley below. We spent the day visiting other sites with a private taxi and this was one of our intended stops. Our taxi... More

The transport drops you of at the entrance so no big climb. The complex is bigger than we thought. You can easily spend some hours here. We were there around 11 which was great because the big groups were all leaving. There is much to see, the tombs, the different houses and many terraces. Take your time for this visit.

Easy walk, esp, nice with a guide. After seeing all the Sacred Valley sights, however, they tend to "mingle" in your remembrance.
