You can get to the quarry sites (which in many cases are just field where loose stones were gathered up) without a foreign guide.

Sledges work just fine. The Inca once they conquered this area used those tribes as their mason. The Spanish recorded the Inca dragging large rocks around.

In his account, Garcilaso de la Vega reported that "they moved them, dragging them with muscle power using thick ropes; nor were the roads along which they hauled them level, but very rough mountains with steep slopes over which they were moved up and down with sheer human strength."
