    This is a beautiful place to enjoy alone and as a couple, it is a place where you relax and you can think about many things, discover new things that you will not find elsewhere.

    This tour was amazing! The views were breathtaking. I highly recommend getting a horse because the hike is somewhat long and uphill. The altitude makes it difficult. The horse only costs s/80 (about $20). A must see.

    It's a beautiful area to hang out at. The negative is that there are a lot of people walking up to you asking you to buy something, and when you do two or three more swoop down out of no where. It got old for me real fast. My 7 year old got got real proficient in "no gracias" However, this is a must see if your spending any time in Cusco and I still give it 5 stars.

    My friends and I booked a classic 4 days Inka Trail with Local Trekkers Peru and it was incredibly very well arranged, they were ver helpful throughout the booking and made the whole process a breeze.

    During the Trail our guide Hendri was outstanding, we had some great laughs together and he really looked out for us when we got sick. He handled all of the campsites, food orders and found us the best campsites along the way. Always with a big smile and a sense of humour. also he is very well informed about the Peruvian Andes, he always told us some stories about the Incas, once in Machupicchu, he took us to another level with his explanation about this amazing Inca city Thanks Amigo!!!.
    Local Trekkers Peru, They take great care of his clients, they provided us with enough porters to make this trip easier, and let me tell you that these guys will take all our admiration since without them none of this amazing experience would have been possible, they were the owners of the show. Also we had enough food for our group very well prepared, tasty and varied, Cristobal our cookman was Fantastic he was always in good mood, thanks to him we don’t worry at all about food, he is a genius.

    Finally I can't recommend this company and these guys highly enough. Seriously, look no further.

    Spent many hours here. All different types of restaurants and things to buy. For better prices go to San Pedro's market a few minutes from the Plaza.

    Fascinating tour of the magnificent Inca Baroque & art work with Marco from Heidi travel. Look for roast Guinea pig in the Last Supper, the puma, condor & snake in the Virgin Mary (whose eyes follow you like the Mona Lisa).

    You need to be in form to climb all the way there, but worth it. It is a beautiful tour in Cusco and kind of a loop from the center and coming back from the other side.

    This market is pretty big to me in that vendors are spilling outside the physical structure of the market. There are many things to buy here including juice, clothing and food to name a few. I highly recommend coming here.

    I think this is the most interesting building in Cusco because of its more-complex history in a city with a complex history. A tour guide is definitely recommended.

    a regular trip that is worth visiting is totally impressive, with Andean culture that is appreciated, a tip is to take medication for altitude sickness

    Great Architecture and Water System. According to history the two brothers of Incas were at loggerheads. The father wanted the sons to make peace. So one son went to meet the other and was ambushed (at the behest of the father). But he prevailed and killed his half-brother(?) and was forced to arrest and exile his father here. I could not find reference to this but this is what the guide told me. A beautiful palace with irrigation systems was built. There are two sources of water with exclusive hydraulic engineering. One source comes from the mountains and one from a natural spring. The spring is providing water at 50 liters per second. Stepped terraces are available but the guide told me it was most likely that only garden flowers were grown. I did see a place for food storage. I did it trek further up due to lack of time .

    A smallish museum, but some really nice pieces displayed very well. Definitely worth the time to visit
