Guide was very informative. Tour takes you to outskirts where you see ruins. Bring money to pay for photo taken of you on bus. Bottle of a herb drink sold to you on bus. Tip to give man who does a blessing on you. Tip to girl who explains the difference between real and fake alpaca clothing. You are a captive audience bit that I did not like so much.
