I have not yet been to any Ruins in Peru, but the Ingapirca Ruins completely fell short of my expectations. To say they are 'old' is hard to accept especially comparing the rock/stone work to the Temples of Angkor and Bagan. Its just a boring...More

Sure you read about the Incas and what not in high school, but nothing compared to seeing the actual artifacts of their society and seeing how they lived. Be sure to also check out the small indoor museum, and the gift shop.

These Canari/Incan ruins are well worth a visit. The structure of the walls made without mortar and completely straight is mind-blowing. Interesting history.

We had a knowledgeable guide with good English. You have to have a guide (free) but you are given sufficient time to see the ruins. Whilst not much is left, it was really interesting and the guide brings it all to life.
