Overview

Explore the legacy of the Inca and Peru’s indigenous culture during this day trip to Maras, Moray, and the ‘Salineras’ from Cusco. Walk the streets of Maras and sample some ‘Chicha’ (corn drink), then learn about Inca engineering and agricultural practices at the Moray archaeological site. You’ll also get to see the “Salineras” salt mines. An optional private trip upgrade is also available.
  • Explore Moray, Maras, and the famous 'Salineras' on this day trip from Cusco
  • Marvel at the Inca engineering skills of Moray
  • Drink 'chicha' (corn beverage) while visiting Maras
  • Admire the visual sight of the 'Salineras,' an Inca-era collection of 3,000 salt-collection pools
  • Optional trip upgrade to a private tour
  • Includes roundtrip hotel transport from Cusco
Receive a morning pickup from your hotel in Cusco, after which you’ll travel into the Peruvian countryside, passing through the typical town of Chinchero en route.

Make your first stop in the small town of Maras, offering you the chance to catch a glimpse of daily life in one of the region’s small towns. Wander the streets of this typical village and sample some “Chicha,” a Peruvian-style corn beverage.

Leaving Maras behind, you’ll drive to Moray, an Inca-era archaeological site. Learn about the design and purpose of this circular style terrace system, a complex that was built by the ancient civilization as a testing ground for various micro-climates and different types of agricultural crops.

After your Maras visit, make a stop at the “Salineras,” a collection of salt mines used since the Inca period to extract salt. The pattern formed by the area’s range of more than 3,000 small salt pools makes for a visually-arresting view for visitors. After your visit to the Salineras, you’ll receive a ride back to your Cusco hotel.

Excellent 1/2 Day Tour!

My friend and I ended up having a private tour with our driver and tour guide who were both knowledgeable and kind. They stopped while driving for us to take photos as we were driving, answered all my questions and the tour guide's English was great. All 3 stops were interesting and the drive was beautiful!

Do not go with this tour company.

The tour started in time as promised but what followed was only commercial. They stopped at a village called Chinchero which was not part of the tour where the women demostrated how they make the fabric out of lama wool. This place also had shops where they sell all sorts of clothes. DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM HERE. IT IS 3 to 4 TIMES expensive than what you can get in Cusco. For ex, I bought a scarf for 35 soles here which was only 8 soles in San Pedro market, Cusco. I guess the tour company has some sort of commission with these people as the tour guide and drive were offered with free meals. We spent more than an hour at this village which was not part of the tour. Then at the rest of the places which were actually part of tour, the guide just rushed in everything and didn't give us enough time to explore and take some pictures.

Dear Mr. Srikant, Thank you for your time and sending your feedback. I already spoke with our guide about this specific situation so we can avoide any mistakes in the future. Chinchero certainly is not an official stop nad our guided always kindly ask our value guest for an alternative stop in order to learn about the weaving and textiles here as Chinchero is famous about this traditions. To shop here or anywhere is not mandatory. I am sorry, but our company does not stop here to make any commissions and all our customers are always happy with our tour as we always provide small group tour and that day we were only 4 people including yourself. We usually end this tour in Cusco by 1:00pm but that day we finish in Cusco at 3:30pm and according to our guide comments we spend more than 30 minutes in each palce so we can not rush our customers at the time of visit. By the way the other 2 couple was requesting to finsh early and we spend more time as you were very happy during the tour and even spending more time in each please than the other couple. Again thank your your feedback and definitely recommend all our guides to make sure and always ask for any additional stops so we can avoide any desappointing experiences and make sure to spend more than 30 minutes in each programmed stops to guaranty a great travel experience as our groups average size are 4 people.

Great way to see the countryside!

I booked this tour with my husband when we visited Peru for our honeymoon in March! It was great- we ended up being the only two in the tour so we were both picked up and dropped off at our hotel- very convenient! Our tour guide spoke English and Spanish very well and was very knowledgeable. We were very happy with our trip. The cost does not include entry fees into either site- together they cost 70 sol a person (about $20)-but we still felt the knowledge and travel was worth the cost of this tour.

Punctual, friendly, and helpful staff. Tour is private, and takes you to the Maras Terraces and Moray Salt Flats. We also stopped at a coop in Chicheron to see traditional wool dying processes. Price is a little steep considering the local market economy, but it was worth having an English speaking guide all to ourselves.

The sites are worth seeing, this tour however isn't as advertised. We were in a 20 person group on a bus. Half the group were Spanish speakers, the other English speaking. The guide would have to explain everything in both languages, wasting time and drawing out the tour. The textile shop we stopped at in Chincheros was dirty and not worth the stop, there are better ones in town to visit. The tour guide was lackluster and didn't go out of his way to be personable and you don't really have much time at any of the stops. Finally, it says hotel pick up and drop off - that was a joke. We were greeted in our hotel lobby and then walked 6 blocks to a street where the bus just stopped and forced us to hustle in quickly and at the end they just left us in San Francisco Square in Cusco and pointed that our hotel was that direction... Good thing we had our map with us!

Muito bom, o guia passou explicações bem completas sobre os lugares visitados (uso histórico pelos incas e pré-incaicos, uso atual das salineras) e o passeio foi feito com toda a segurança por paisagens incríveis

La salida está bien. El guía q nos toco no explicaba mucho. Los lugares son muy lindos pero hubiese sido más rica si nos contaba un poco más sobre la historia

Acredito que quem viaja de Cusco para Machu Picchu, este roteiro pode ser dispensado. É muito desgastante o deslocamento, para pouco tempo de aproveitamento das atrações oferecidas e que nada acrescentam. O grave foi que o veículo que nos transportou era um carro particular que sequer tinha ar condicionado e fomos obrigados a viajar por estradas empoeiradas com os vidros abertos, apesar de constantemente solicitarmos ao motorista e ao guia que fechassem as janelas. O custo adicional dos ingressos para atrações somente é divulgado após confirmada a compra da excursão, o que não me pareceu razoável nem justo. Um dos passageiros se sentiu desconfortável durante o deslocamento, com náusea severa. O motorista e o guia formam informados e não ofereceram nenhuma opção para alívio do desconforto, sequer fazendo uma breve parada no percurso. Péssimo atendimento. E ainda nos foi informado que estávamos ganhando um upgrade na saída do passeio, por conta de que não iríamos em transporte compartilhado. Melhor checar o fornecedor do passeio antes.
