Liked Tambomachay better than Sacsayhuman. You can hire a taxi from Cusco to take you to all of the local ruins & do it in a few hours

We found that Archaeological site of Tambomachay was interesting to visit, especially because it was included in our Cusco tourist ticket. One hour self-guided tour was enough to learn about Inca's life between wars and travels.

If I have to manage this place, I will cordon off the area near the ruins to preserve the foundation and integrity of the structures. Tourists overrun this small attraction like a mob with their compulsion to takes selfies and photos in every nook close...More
