Day 1: Arrival to Cusco

Your experience will begin as you meet your guides, who will be waiting for you as you arrive to Cusco.

Day 2: Chinchero, Maras, Moray

Your second day will begin with pickup from your hotel before you head towards the colorful town of Chinchero. There you will find Inca walls and a small colonial church which holds plenty of history. Continuing your visit, you will go to the famous circular cultivation terraces of Moray. You will then descend towards to Maras Salt Mines, a location which makes for perfect photo opportunities. You'll visit more than 3,000 salt pools in an area where salt was used by the Incas for their consumption. You'll finish by heading towards Ollantaytambo Station to take a train to Aguas Calientes. That evening, you will stay in the Golden Sunrise Hotel (or similar).
