“Stunning!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Hardly any tourists when we visited Tipon but the site is incredible! One of our favorite Inca sites in Peru. The incredible ingenuity and engineering skills of the Incas is clearly visible here. The site is easily accessible by car and then the site requires some uphill walking to access the terraces and see the incredible water channeling and drainage features. We spent about 2 hours at the site in the early morning and thoroughly recommend adding Tipon to your itinerary when in the Cusco region.

“Time for cue”
Reviewed 18 May 2014 via mobile

I went for Tipon not for the ruins, but for me it was all about trying the Cue.
So i took a taxi from Cusco and he drove us until a family restaurant. So there we tryed a "fresh" cue just as the locals are used.

“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Our guide decided to show us Tipon only because we had a bit of extra time - granted we hustled our butts off. It was worth it! This is what the locals would call an alternative tour as it is not on all of the guide's itineraries. It is absolutely beautiful, and there is a lot to learn here. Don't miss it! Was a highlight of our trip.

“Wonderful engineering!”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

This is an archaeological sight that isn't visited by as many tourists, we had the place mostly to ourselves. Beautiful!

“Tipon zoo”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

We visited the zoo in Tipon and really enjoyed seeing all the native South American animals however some enclosures are in need of a revamp. It's not very well known as it's quite small however I'd encourage you to go check it out on the way to the ruins. Hopefully an increase in tourist dollars will enable them to build larger enclosures.
