The picture is very deceptive, but in spite of it, the tour was great.The tour guide, Oscar, was excellent and we enjoyed the tour on the whole a lot. People, however, should be aware that they are not going to see much of what they see in the picture because it is no longer there. The museum at the site gives a good sense of what is no longer visible, and the artifacts are interesting. The drive from La Paz is also very interesting.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2016

I was rushed because I was told we had to due the Moon Tour on the same day. My guide spoke 90 of the time to the driver in Spanish while we were driving. When we were at the site he was on his phone 50 of the time talking or texting. I felt like a spare tire. He was a pleasent person but not the best tour guide.
