This is fairly easy to see when in Macchu Picchu and well worth it. I would not want to have to walk over the bridge.

There is no Inca Bridge in Ollantaytambo. All the reviews below are either for the Inca Bridge at Machu Picchu, or for the town of Ollantaytambo itself. There is a river that runs by the town, and there ARE little bridges that go across at a couple of points along the river, but they are NOT the Inca Bridge. Save yourself the wild goose chase. This whole 'attraction' needs to be moved to the "Things to do in Machu Picchu" area.

I've uploaded a pic of the actual bridge in Ollantaytambo. Prepare to be 'dazzled.'

Don't know why they list this bridge at Ollantaytambo when the hike is from Machu Picchu. Anyway, this is an easy 40 minute round trip hike on relatively level ground - no steep inclines or declines (plus whatever time you spend there taking photos and wondering at the engineering involved). The trail is much less crowded than that to the Sun Gate of Huanya Picchu. There are no guard rails and a straight/sheer drop off in some places to the valley below (at some places the trail is the width of a sidewalk, at others you have to turn sideways to pass others). You can not walk on/cross the drawbridge - there is a wooden rail blocking the trail about 50 feet from the bridge and a NO CROSSING sign. I don't think I would want to walk on the bridge - the wooden beams seem awfully old and unstable and the trail on the other side disappears very quickly into the jungle overgrowth. No fees involved, other than your entrance fee to Machu Picchu sanctuary. Just follow the signs on the left side of the main pathway into Machu Picchu to the Guardhouse, then follow the signs from there. Enjoy the views of the valley.

After hiking to the sun gate at Machu Pichu this was an easy hike and worth seeing. It falls under the title of "how did they do that". The views along the way are outstanding.

After Climbing over Machu Picchu all day and suffering from the altitude I stayed and the checkpoint where you sihn in to walk to the bridge and enjoyed the sunshine, but my Wife walked there on her own and the pictures she took were stunning, wish I had manned up and walked there now! Its amazing how these timbers have survived.
