Maras, Moray and Chinchero Private Day Trip from Cusco

US$104.00

Overview
On this full-day tour you will go to the Sacred Valley and the Urubamba Valley of Peru. Located between Cusco and Machu Picchu, this valley is known for its lush landscape, picturesque colonial towns and magnificent Incan fortress. Discover this beautiful, charming and historic place as we visit the enigmatic archaeological site of Moray, where new crops were developed by the Inca using varying altitudes on a terraced system. Then, we visit the town of Maras and the complex of Salineras. Admire how a salt water spring gushes forth from these high altitude mountains and tumbles down the mountainside into individual evaporation chambers which have been fully operational in bringing the people of the highlands salt, ever since Inca times.
Highlights
  • Explore Inca sites such as Maras, Moray, and Chinchero with a private guide
  • Learn traditional weaving styles on a visit to an Andean textile center
  • See the Peruvian countryside, from wheat fields to the Andes Mountains
  • Hassle-free pickup and drop-off at your Cusco accommodation
What to Expect
Your private guide picks you up in the morning at your Cusco accommodation. Travel in comfort past wheat fields and traditional villages to Moray, enjoy sweeping views over the snow-capped Andes Mountains. On arrival, explore Moray and its amphitheater-like terraces used by the Incas to grow crops and gain insight from your guide into a civilization lost in time. Next, head to the salt mines in the village of Maras with more than 3,000 salt pools carved into the mountains—where salt is believed to have been produced since pre-Inca times. Continue on to Chinchero, home to ancient Incan structures including altars, squares, and fortified walls, alongside more modern colonial buildings. In the afternoon, delve into the world of Andean textiles and discover traditional weaving techniques dating back to the days of the Incas. Your tour concludes with transport to your Cusco hotel.
