All I can say is WOW! The fact that these structures date back so long ago and you’re able to walk up to the top while your tour guide is informing you on every bit of history is such an experience! Make sure you have an amazing guide who knows their stuff! Ours was Onil and he is very educated on the culture. We would do this again in a heartbeat, but now I’m more motivated to see more! 10/10 would HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Our guide, Dima was great! We were able to move at our own pace through the tour and experience each part of the site. Along the way, Dima taught us so many incredible things. He offered to take photos for us, and answered all our questions. We loved touring in the morning because we had the place almost to ourselves, which was a unique and special experience. It was the perfect length of time. I recommend this tour!
