What people are saying about Maras

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.

A cool way to both explore the Inca sites and enjoy the nature in an adventurous way, highly recommend it. It wasn’t tiring a lot as it was for half a day.

This trip was amazing! The guide was very knowledgeable about the places we visited and what we were doing. Definitely would do it again!

It was well organized and the guides explained throughly the operation of the quads. Safety first. Beautiful scenery.
