What people are saying about Ollantaytambo

Good value pass.

Gives access to 16 sites, although not all of them are within a reasonable distance from Cusco (wish we had researched this more). Really good value though, they dropped the tickets off with out hotel because of a long delay on our flights and their office was closed on the day of our arrival. Great service.

From booking to the tour is all excellent job!! The places from the tour was all good, interesting & informative. They were able to accommodate me to drop off at Ollantaytambo to catches my train to Aguas Calientes. They also did the lunch from a good restaurant Cuncho.

Mix of sightseeing and culture. Great for children. Good explanations from guide. Spectacular sites and views.

Take 70 soles to buy some tickets since they do not indicate it in the tour package

The whole tour is very good. It was Sunday on the city's anniversary day.
