because of the long fucking at the shopping (alpaca center) did not have time to see the fourth declared ruin what a pity. since I was in Cuzco one day and acquired a ticket to all four points. I will have no other opportunity to watch and the ticket burned out ""

We felt that too much time was spent in the church and the temple and we had to really rush at the end to make it before sundown. 20 mins at Saqsaywaman is not enough for anything. We spent too much time standing around listening to explanations instead of looking around. The guide's English was not the best and he talked very slowly which added to the time that could have been spent sightseeing. We enjoyed the tour but really felt rushed at the end.
