Toured with guide. Don't go without one because you will not understand very much. We started at the top which is the best way to do it. Very interesting Inca history. The massive Stone really is. Hard to believe so much was accomplished by people 500 years ago

Absolutely amazing. Our tour with Americo, contracted out by the Belmond Monasterio, was superb. The view from The more easterly collection of temples across to the main holy site was amazing. You could see the purposeful ridges of the design and appreciate the complexity of the architecture.

You'll need the tourist ticket to enter or enjoy the view as you travel by on the double decker bus tour. This is on the way to the Christo Blanco statue in the hills overlooking Cusco.

Cusco was the center of the Inca Empire and the ruins are fabulous to see and feel history. The stonework is superb.

Sacsayhuaman was the largest construction of the Incas, it was built with huge blocks of stone for over 100 years and one of its heaviest blocks is 120 tons, this place is incredible and not to be missed, Sacsayhuaman is located only a 30 minutes walk from the city of Cusco or 10 munitos by taxi. Visit this wonderful place.

This was one of our first stops and it was breath taking. The sight was one of a kind. Just wandering around makes you ponder how the Incas built this.

The size of this site and the stone structures are very impressive. After seeing Machu Picchu, it was interesting to see and learn about the importance of Cusco in the Inca Empire.

The massive stone at this site is mind-blowing. Machu Picchu is cool for it's location and size, but if astonishing stonework is your thing, Sacsayhuamon wins by a mile. And, it's about a 40 minute walk from Plaza De Armas, rather than the grueling, crowded, and expensive trek to MP.
