What to expect
Your tour begins with pickup from your Cusco hotel in time for a morning departure. Traveling in the comfort of a private vehicle, enjoy views across the Sacred Valley of the Incas on the around 1-hour journey to Chinchero. On arrival, set out to explore the Andean town, stopping to admire its original Adobe church and browse the stalls of the local markets, renowned for their colorful textiles and traditional handicrafts. Continue to the circular terraces of Moray and follow your guide around the fascinating ruins, built by the Incas as an agricultural research station. Hear how the Incas used the terraces to experiment growing crops at different altitudes and take photos of the remarkable site, which resembles a grass-covered amphitheater. The final stop of the day is the Maras Salt Mines, or Salinas, another unique Inca site, featuring hand-built terraced ‘pools’ in which salt water was evaporated in the sun, enabling them to harvest the salt. Back in Cusco, your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Awesome!
Aug 2018 • Couples
We were so much in awe throughout this tour! Our guide was excellent and was very knowledgeable about the history and culture of the Incas.She explained in detail about each of the stops we visited. We loved seeing how the alpaca wool is cleaned, dyed and woven. The Salt Mines were amazing! Very interesting hearing about the salt mines, how the salt is harvested and what each layer of salt is used for. We were able to see someone harvesting the salt. Or main goal when visiting Peru was to see Machu Picchu, but this tour and others in the area of Cusco are all a definite must-see! We saw and did so much more on this trip than we expected.

Thank you for your kind words, we appreciate you taking the time to write a review. Our guides are passionate about their history and culture and love sharing that with our clients. Your experiences with the Alpaca wool and the salt mines are not experienced by many travelers to Peru, but well worth the visit. Not everyone takes the time to go off the beaten path and see some of the other sites available, but we are glad you did and that you allowed us to show them to you. Thanks again

Best private Sacred Valley tour!
Dec 2017 • Family
We did a one day private Sacred Valley tour, covering Ollantytambo ruins, Maras salt mines, Moray, and Chinchero. Danny was a great tour guide. He not only explained the locations we stopped at, but also clarified a lot of Incan history for us. It was clear that he is passionate about his culture and the history of his people, which made the experience even more special for us. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip!
