This was an easy to walk through Incan site with beautiful terraces on the mountainside. It took us about an hour or a little more to go through all the areas. We did not use a guide, but many people did. You are able to...More

It's such a big historical site you really need to dedicate it a whole day. Take a guide even though you consider yourself an expert. You might find out hidden details

We went to Ollantaytambo the day after Machu Picchu and thought anything following Machu Picchu would be underwhelming but these ruins were such a pleasant surprise! They are massive and overlook all of Ollantaytambo which was just beautiful. I won't soon forget that view. We...More

Crazy to see these ruins that were built so long ago! I loved everything about Ollantaytambo! Great town, mountains in all directions! Our guide took us around the town into homes where folk sold tourists items! Guinea pigs running around the houses. Loved it all!

These were our first Incan ruins of the trip and surpassed all expectations. They are huge and dominate this small charming town. We were very glad we opted for a guide and what we learnt here helped provided a great foundation for understanding Incan culture....More

We explored this for about 3 hours and enjoyed the ruins more than Machu Picchu. The photos may not be that scenic but the ruins are much larger and interesting and have more variety than the other Inca ruins.

The site is really impressive, especially the part which includes watter. You can also kind of hike out of the offical area and in a few minutes, you can reach ruins of a fortress. Unfortunatelly, it can get VERY crowded in the afternoon.

One of the most amazing places in Valle Sagrado. City made of stones, small spring running trough streets and above the center the Incas Fortress.

We thoroughly enjoyed the park. It was made special because of our guide. Best to see in the morning before it gets too busy. Good walk up, but not unreasonably strenuous. Would be good for kids, too.

We stayed in Yucay, near Ollantaytambo so it was a short ride. We had private guide so this won't help you as he picked us at 9. I would imagine we got there by 10:30 or so after some stops at Pisac. Going into the town is... More
