Natural, Cultura, archaeological and Alternative Sacred Valley tour

Maras is an attractive colorful village locates in the Sacred Valley surrounded with beautiful sceneries.
Moray it is unique archaeological group in its sort in the region. It is about an enormous terraces that are superposed concentrically in a gigantic hole, these beautiful terraces that served at the Inca time like an agricultural laboratory "Prototype as Conservatory" in which old quechuas experienced and obtained improvements.
Salineras, Salinas or "salt mines" are constituted for about 2000 small wells with an area average of about 5 mts², operated from the time Inca, Colonial time and that even continues being exploded by the villagers for their consumption.
I suggest this route as one of the most beautiful and off the beaten paths!!!

A Recent Review of this tour

Raul made our visit to Cusco memorable. He is knowledgeable on a wide range of subjects from local culture, history, to agriculture, music and food. His tour was quite flexible and made adjustments to the published itinerary once learning our interests. One very memorable moment came on our visit to Moray, where halfway down into the terraces he took out his flute and played a mesmerizing folk tune. You could see how all visitors in the area stopped to listen to him. He's a wonderfully personable guide!
