Offers great view and interesting history. You can explore the place on your own (no need for guide). The access is very good (paved road all the way) with an ample parking space.

I did the afternoon tour of about 3 hours. The guide was well informed and took us through the history of the tombs and the area. I had been, by myself, to the museum of Carlos Dreyer in the morning and thought the pair complimented...More

Do go here if you get the chance. It is a great place to see Inca burial structures and to learn about this civilisation. The town is very clean and the coffee shop near the car park serves very good coffee. The little stall also...More
