  • Great place to "feel small". Sometimes you need to be reminded how previous civilizations dwarfed our own building skills. Our guide Carlos was amazing and am happy to connect you to him if you'd like.

  • Had a tour of this place and though it is simple and basic, it does a good job of what needs to be offered. Cafe, bowling, veggie patches, gym, meeting rooms, libraries etc. lots of activities for residents and very quiet. I’m just wondering though if they should make it a gated entrance. Heard there had been a burglary some time ago.

  • Nice place. Big. But the instructions are hard to follow and sometimes you don't know if you are seeing the tourist attraction or just random stuff. Included in the Cusco tourist ticket

  • Amazing archeological place. The museum and the guided tour is great, the authorized guides have a lot of knowledge. I strongly advise you to visit this amazing place and enjoy some of the several civilizations that inhabited this place.

  • Just up on the hill overlooking Cusco and an easy stop on the city tour. Takes about half an hour to walk around and take photos. Good lookout over a panoramic view of the city too.
