If you know much about history this is a significant ruins to view. Best viewed in the morning before the crowds, but worth the time and effort to see.

Not only the splendid view, but also the incredible welcoming from the local people makes one feel they traveled back in time. With just half an hour in the park you already feel like an inka.

This place was amazing! Our guide Jonathan was very informative and helpful. You will need a couple of hours at least to take it all in and enjoy the scenery beyond too.

Had no idea we'd pay so much to get in, but the park was super impressive. Really different from other sites we visited nearby and definitely worth allowing several hours to see it.

Used a tour guide on sight who gave us a lot of information we wouldn't have gotten. Enjoyed all her knowledge! Beautiful views! Be prepared to climb a lot of tall steps!

On the way down we saw 5 alpacas grazing. We went in around 430 and left around 630 evening. Very quiet time. Easy walk. Give about 2 hours

On your way to Machu Picchu? Do not forget to make a stop at Ollantaytambo. It is worth a day visit. See the Archaeological Park. The wall of Monoliths and other Inca remains are very impressive. A steep walk but a very nice view on...More

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
