Moray is only slightly off the path toward wherever you are headed - Sacred Valley destinations or Cusco. Make the stop - it is interesting to see. Photos do not do it justice (like with every other site in the Sacred Valley). The concentric circles get lower and lower in elevation - and it is thought that the Qechuan people during the time of the Inca used these as agricultural labs to test various crops.
You need the Boleto Turistico here, and can buy it here and use it elsewhere also. Just decide whether you want the whole ticket (good for 10 days or so) or just the partial ticket for just the day. We bought the whole thing so that we wouldn't have to deal with it again, figuring that we would use it in Cusco also, as well as Ollantaytambo and maybe Pisac.
At most of these sites, in order to use the bathroom you will need a Nuevo Sole.

Interesting to see the formation of moray. We took lots of pictures as our guide brought us around the entire area. I know some tours only drive to the viewing plateau so we were lucky.

Shows that the Incas had advanced understanding of micro climates and agronomy, despite apparently not having a written language. The scale is also impressive.

Toured Moray, Maras and Chinchero as part of a group day tour. Your experience will depend upon how good your Guide is and our guide was knowledgeable and passionate about Inca history. The bus driver was too aggressive and overconfident but that seems to be a common element of the affordable day tours.

From the top it looked like it could have been an amphitheater but in fact each level had its own micro-climate so it was an agricultural spot. The walk down was fine, the walk back up the trail was tough because of the high altitude and my being grossly out of shape.
