What people are saying about Maras

It is very good for those who do not want to worry about making reservations for these places. It just does not include the tourist ticket that must be purchased separately and the entrance to the Minas de Sal. There was no time to make lunch after the tour of the sacred valley as it was already very late to catch the train to Aguas Calientes. The hotel booked in Aguas Calientes was phenomenal! I recommend contacting the agency 2 days before the tour starts to check with them if everything is right. We had to go to the agency 1 day before the start of the tours to confirm, the ideal is to get in touch beforehand and ask them to leave everything available at the hotel reception.
