“Very interesting site”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

The weather was beautiful and we had an excellent guide - very informative. In spite of the fact the schools were having their annual field trip day, it is not crowded, plus they were fun to watch.

“Amazing!”

This place was truly amazing! It is so hard to imagine the amount of work that went into building this structure it is just mind boggling! Don't miss this!!!!! It is a must if you are in Cuzco.

“This site is enormous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

We saw what the Incans were capable of building with this impressive site! We have watched several shows on TV that talk about it, but being there is so much better.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

We were there as part of the Cusco City Tour and did not expect to be outside the city, but were glad to be able to see these ruins. Be sure to check to see if your city tour takes you outside the city because it can become very cold at this high elevation.

“An amazing place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

This is NOT a military fortress! It is a sacred temple site guarded by the most astonishing network of hand carved limestone butresses - it has no equal anywhere on the planet. To miss this site is to miss the most important place in Peru.
