“Great ruin to visit”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

We really enjoyed this site. Our orient express guide, Darwing, took us here. It is really very interesting. You also get the most amazing view of the city of Cusco. I highly recommend a visit to this unique historic site.

“So much history!”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Don't miss the rock slides - kids had a blast sliding down them. Sacsayhuaman is an impressive ruin as we'd been reading about the demise of the Incas this site had great significance.

“Fascinating Place”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

We visited Sacsayhauman after seeing Machu Picchu, so anything after that does not resonate as well. Nonetheless, the masonry workmanship and precision of the joints between the rocks is spectacular. It's hard to appreciate what this place looked like in the time before Pizarro. There are also great photo opportunities with local color.

“Incredible”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

This place is a great example of the magnificence of the Inka culture. The huge stones and the perfect walls resonate with a spiritual energy that help you understand the philosophy of these people. It also offers a great view of the city of Cusco. Don't miss it while in Cusco.
