Very cool, but I wish we had more time to see Moray & Salt Pool's..... Great Trip, Our guide we're great also they Main guide spoke English, which was nice! Equipemt was also very nice! I reserved an ATV for 2 rider's and we were put on the largest one they had, Nice! Road through the country side, buzzed through some small towns and stop by a beautiful lake in the plans area near Chinchero, Peru. I would recommend verifying your reservations. If you need two ATV pay the extra costs, it's only like $10 US more per person at the time of my booking. We like ridding together so I opted to ride double and it paid off with a larger vehicle We did get the trip short because two riders were injured while trying to clime an incline with a smaller ATV with two people that initially hopped on two ATV's at the beginning but only rented 1 ATV thinking they rented 2 ATV's. So please make sure you know what your renting. Langues barriers are major in Peru..... It's not Mexico where you may find someone that speaks English more so than not.
If you like adventure and want a unique way to see Moray and Maras this is the tour for you! The guides were helpful and made sure we were all comfortable operating the ATV's before we began the tour. As someone who has never ridden, let alone driven, and ATV before I felt comfortable and confident with the guides. Being able to see the beautiful scenery of the country side on an ATV was exhilarating and made the experience more memorable opposed to taking a van to these sites. With this tour, the ATV ride really is the main experience so we only got about 20-30 minutes at each site. However, never once did we feel rushed. We had enough time to snap some photos and explore the sites before heading back to the ATV's. At Maras, our guide had his own market stand and was nice enough to let us try the different types of salt along with a variety of chocolates. They also gave the option to see a lagoon nearby instead of traveling to Moray. My friend and I decided to go to Moray but the rest of the group had great things to say about the lagoon. Because it's a half day tour, we were able to do this before flying out to Lima later in the afternoon. I am so thankful we decided to do this. One of the highlights of our trip!
Great tour of the countryside! The tour guide was knowledgeable and helpful. If you’re not interested in seeing the salt flats or other attractions, you can just ask them for a straight up ATV tour and drive around for the two hours seeing villages and mountains and livestock. Lots of fun
I took off a star because the ATV tour felt rushed. It was a great experience, but it would be nice if they made it an hour or 2 longer so you can enjoy the 2 sites. So the 2 sites are not included in the cost. It would be nice if they worked out a deal with the sites where they could get a discount and bundle the costs into the ATV tour. We skipped the first site because it was like 50 USD to be there for about 15 mins.
It started off rough because one of the girls in my group was a few minutes behind and they left us. Then we had to run about a mile around town to try and find the bus. When we finally got on, the tour was great. The ATVs and the Zip Line are amazing. The Zip Line is SUPER AMAZING.
Loved this tour, the guides were amazing and super friendly. We had really bad weather during our tour, unexpected rain and they really tried to make the best of it. Only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because the driver didn't drop us off at our hotel but left us about 10mins away. Which wouldn't have been a big deal on a regular day but we were soaked wet and dirty. The tour itself was awesome and the guides were awesome.. they just need to get a nicer driver for the ride back to the hotels.
This was our favorite family adventure on the trip!! We were able to see two incredible places and the scenery on the ATV trail was amazing!! The young men working with the ATVs trained us well and were super positive and supportive!!
The ATVs are nice and function well. They are easy to use and make the tour a lot of fun. There is not much time to stop at the two spots because the purpose of the tour is to ride the ATVs. I would do the tour again as it was a lot of fun but if you're looking to get a good look at Moray and walking around or visit the salt mines for more than 5-10 minutes then you may want to do the regular 1/2 day tour by bus.
Do not take this tour unless you are only interested in ATVing through the countryside, quick stop at Moray, and quick stop at Maras enough to take some pics. There was no time for stopping/photos/seeing landscape/otherwise. The speed of the tour was dangerous at times both in the van to/from Cusco and on the ATVs, and you cannot go at your own pace. Our group was mixed with experienced ATVers and newbies. The guide's consistent speed, miscommunication, and insistence on everyone keeping up was scary and annoying. You are on actual dirt roads with buses, cars, ATVers, bikers, animals, and people. On another note, the ATV operators were wonderful, just not the guide, driver, and tour operator. Our expectations were deflated almost immediately with arguing that we were late at pickup they were 10 minutes early, arriving at 6:50am and had reception call us - our pickup time to be in the lobby was 7-7:15am - and diminished throughout the day with constant arguing with the guide and van driver.
TOUR OPERATOR COMMENT: Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback of your tour experience. Please note, the pick-up time for the tour is always 10 minutes before the scheduled tour departure time to allow for proper check in before the tour commences. Also, our guide advised you declined to enter the Moray site. Nevertheless, we do offer explaination all along the tour route. Please be aware, this is is not a private tour experience and therefore we must follow a set itinerary as that is what the other guests present are expecting. We understand you cancelled your zip-lining activity mid-tour which caused an unexpected last-minute issue as we do not typically have to make alterations mid-experience. We always strive to provide the best possible service to all our customers and are disappointed to hear you did not enjoy your overall experience. Thank you for touring with us.
