“Must see with a guide”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

We stopped in here on advise of trip advisor, and we are glad we did. We got a guide for the first time and we are glad we did, they were able to explain the difference between what the Spanish did and what was original Inca's.

Go see it, cheap to get in, pay for the guide.

“Cusco and the Sacred Valley”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

This is a very interesting site that was hidden away until the earthquake in the 1950's. Be sure to look through the perfectly aligned window openings.

“Beautiful place”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

There's so much to see inside, recommend spending a few hours here and try to avoid the tours that only spend 30 mins here as you'll miss out on too much. It's beautiful from the outside too.

“Beautiful church”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

So much to see inside the church, recommend taking a few hours rather than going with a tour or you'll find it too rushed.

“Surprisingly impressive”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

I wasn't expecting to be very impressed but I was. The town and the ruins were amazing. It's not to be missed.
