15 Reviews
Tours Culture & history Activities Day trips

Visit the mines of Maras and the terraces of Moray, on a half-day tour of places with unique shapes and colors in the world.


  • Visit important Inca sites in Cusco's Sacred Valley
  • Explore the Salineras Salt Mine and see the more than 3,000 salt pools
  • Marvel at the spectacular agricultural labs of the Incas in Moray


After being collected from your accommodations in Cusco at around 8:30AM, you will depart for Moray, which is an archaeological site approximately 50 kilometers northwest of Cusco. This site contains unusual Inca ruins, mostly consisting of several enormous terraced circular depressions, the largest of which is approximately 30 meters deep. As with many other Inca sites, it also has a sophisticated irrigation system. This Inca site exhibits numerous circular agricultural terraces built by the Incas in natural sinkholes on a limestone plateau overlooking the Urubamba Valley. It has been suggested that they had a cosmological meaning, but their function other than for agricultural purposes remains unclear. Next, you will visit the colonial village of Maras, a town in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. The town is well known for its nearby salt evaporation ponds, which have been in use since Inca times. The salt-evaporation ponds are up-slope, less than a kilometer west of the town. This is an important salt mine site, which was exploited during Inca times and then again later during the colonial times up until today. At the conclusion of your tour, you will be returned to Cusco at approximately 3:00PM.
