With my spouse / partner

Trip Type:
Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: The light and sound show might not seem attractive for the more experienced travellers, but is definitely worth a look see as one can really take in the entire ruins from a nice vantage with exceptionally beautiful lights and devoid of the crowds and hawkers.

Liked: The largest and most fantastic pyramids and ruins

Disliked: A bit too commercialised, not really worth staying overnight a day trip from Valladolid is better
