If you're seeing all the other ruins just outside Cusco, then go ahead and check it out, especially if you have the card that lets you visit it all. And if you're there, keep hiking down the river, and there's lots more unrestored terraces and enclosures and such

Very easy to walk from Tambomachay to Cusco visiting the other sites on the route. Tambomachay is small but nice with the fountains and inca structures.

A quick ride outside Cusco, the baths are actually unexpectedly interesting. Offer another look into Incan culture, and the ingenuity of their civilization. If you can manage to fit them into your itinerary, I would recommend a visit. Won't take long and won't involve excessive (or strenuous) walking.

Do not go here until you are acclimated to altitude. Not much of a structure and very busy with buses not even able to find parking.

Water is life, and the Incas built careful watersystems. This is a good ruin to see first, to begin to understand the Inca attitude toward construction and their care of the water that sustained them. Ruins are in good shape, animals along the way are a nice "extra."

Though not a huge site the aqueduct system was interesting to see. A total visit to the site with an explanation by the guide would take maybe half an hour.

Nice place. It's very relaxing and you get to enjoy a bit of the Inca life... I like to experience at least some of what life used to be like when these structures were used by the Incas.

This site along with Puka Pukara across the road give a great introduction to Incan society and prepare the traveler for Sacsayhauman which is the primary ruin in the area.

Interesting site but there's not much there. Really built up by tour guides only to find a few ruins atop a hill and locals selling their goods up and down the path. Not a must if you're in Cuzco and limited on time.
