Half day Maras, Moray, and weavers

Tour included Moray, Maras salt mine, and an additional stop at the Chincheros weavers. I like that the guide took us through Moray, but would have liked more time to walk up to the highest view point for the classic overlook picture or it should at least be made clear that the tour won't go there. Too much time spent at the weavers.

Relatively well organized excursion, all details were given before. Pleasant solution not to be on the run on the visit of the sacred valley without missing these two superb sites! Be careful though, if you don't want to pay 2 times the entrance ticket to do Maras-Moray + sacred valley in two days

Must-see sights!

Excellent 6-hour tour departing in the morning from Cusco and going to the Salinas de Maras and the Archaeological Site of the Agricultural Ruins of Moray, with beautiful landscapes along the way. The guide, in addition to being very attentive, enriched the whole tour with his great knowledge, and the van driver made the trip safe and pleasant. Extremely punctual both in the search and in the return to the Hotel. It is very worthwhile, with time to listen to the guide, enjoy the landscapes, photograph and purchase souvenirs. I recommend!
