The reason to visit here are those incredible walls of enormous boulders. Trying to imagine how the Incans moved them and fit them exactly together should blow anyone’s mind. We happened to be there for the dress rehearsal for the solstice celebration (which happens annually...More

Went here with Chaska Tours and was amazed at the size of these ruins. Also, to see the size of the stones that are cut perfectly to fit together like a puzzle. The engineering is astounding!

We visited this Incan era citadel/ fortress as part of a full day Sacred Valley tour. The timing of our tour was the day before we did the 1 day Inca Trail Home and then Machu Picchu which gave helpful perspective and historical reference.

Try bargaining with the guide and definitely take a guide who tells you the history of place.. There is a lot of walking and hiking in all Peru so be prepared. This place has history and also a fun rocky slide..

Okay, so you are going to be amazed by what the Inca did in Machu Picchu. Well this site of Inca construction is amazing as well. A good guide will make the experience much better than a visit on your own.

This is a site that I would highly recommend having a guide. You can easily walk out through it on your own but you will learn so much with a guide.
