“Not so interesting”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

After Machu Picchu, this place pales in comparison and somewhat looks like a bunch of rocks. The best thing is the view of Cusco city available from the site.

“Not so interesting”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Unfortunately, we saw this after Machu Picchu, and we didn't find it too interesting. We just didn't find it to be that unique. We had also been at other ruins and maybe we were just tired of seeing Inca ruins at that point.

“Interesting site, great views of Cuzco”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

This site is covered by most tours but if you can get there yourself it's much better. Get there early too and you'll have the place to yourself. You need the boleto turstico to get in which is a bit of a scam but unavoidable. You can buy it here or in Cuzco's tourist office.

When the guide explained what I was looking at and walking around, I was most impressed.

This is an extraordinary place.
