I loved it! I took the advice of many other reviewers and hired a guide, but I wish I didn't. 50 soles for standing around in the sun listening to boring history for 40 minutes... After the guide left we had a blast exploring. I...More

We spent about 2 hours there with the tour guide. The site is really amazing for the precision in the construction. We really enjoyed it. The weather was a bit cool and windy, so a jacket was needed.

Really nice place to explore. Huge with great views. Didn't have a tour guide but would probably be nicer with one to give more insight. There's no shortage of them on site trying to get your business

Sacsayhuaman in located in the hills surrounding Cusco. If you have arrived in directly to Cusco, planning to visit Machu Picchu and other locales a guided tour of Sacsayhuaman is great way to introduce yourself to what lays ahead. You will see amazing architectural formations...More

I believe at the bottom of one entrance there is someone checking your boletas. I am not quite sure that it would be considered a lost and found area. So sorry I couldn’t be of more help but I didn’t see any information... More
