This was a really fun activity and a good way to see the surrounding areas of Cusco. The salt mines are quite interesting and Moray was nice. You will get a bit dirty on the bikes so wear appropriate clothes, and I highly suggest bringing a bandana or something to cover your nose and mouth from all the dust.

This was such an amazing experience. For us, we’ve been doing so many tours and you get tired of sitting on a bus for so long. This, you took a car out to the garage and then off into the ATVs. Our guide was super helpful and a lot of fun. He gave us options which way we wanted to take back. He would stop in beautiful scenic pictures to take our pictures. I would recommend 100%

The guide picked us up in front of our Airbnb and was on time. We booked an early trip which I would recommend. Since there are less groups on the road early in the day. We got a simple lesson on how to drive the quad and our guide was nice, energetic and spoke English well. The salt mines are well worth it, nice view and history. Just for 10 soles it’s a deal. Also please get some salt to go. Ok first thing first, you go off road. This means it will be dirty and wind so I recommend long pants and a long sleeve shirt or light jacket. You will visit Moray. If you have the 10 day pass then you might as well enter it. If you don’t it’s 70 sol to enter. We visited it and it was nothing special. Overall a good break from the hiking.
