Maras, Moray and Chinchero Private Day Trip from Cusco
From US$99.00
Peru’s Inca architecture attracts visitors from all over the world, but the country’s impressive ruins are only part of the story. On this private full-day sightseeing tour, visit the fertile terraces of Moray, salt mines of Maras, and fortified walls of Chinchero, and learn not just how the Incas lived, but also how they thrived. Round-trip travel from Cusco and a stop to learn Inca textile-weaving techniques are also included.
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.

A lot of travel agents in Cusco offer different tours and transfers. You would not have a problem finding an option. Most of them are around the busy main square.
