  • Sacred Valley: Maras & Moray by Quad Bike from Cusco

    1. Sacred Valley: Maras & Moray by Quad Bike from Cusco

    Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in Cusco, and then travel to Cruz Pata in the heart of the Sacred Valley. Get a briefing and training session on how to drive a Quad Bike to make sure you feel comfortable and confident before you set off. Venture onwards to the archaeological site of Moray to look closely at the remains of the terraces built by the Incas to experiment with adapting crops. Continue to the town of Pueblo de Maras and get beautiful views of the Urubamba mountain range. Gaze in awe at the peaks of the Veronica and Chicón mountains before going down to the historic Salineras salt mines. Take a different route back and enjoy a snack on arrival.

    The ATV to the Circular terraces was awesome!!! And the circular terraces itself was amazing!!! Edgar did a great job explaining the history of the terraces. He also was very patient and kind, staying with me as I huffed and puffed going back up. The same was true of our other guide, whom I missed getting his name. He stayed with me as well during the uphill climb from the salineras. Both of them also took awesome videos of us, making the videos look like it was taken by a drone. Thank you guys for an awesome experience!!!

Loved this!!! Someone was in contact with us immediately after we booked, even though it was somewhat last minute. The service was great and the guide was so friendly and knowledgeable! Loved the trip as well. Highly recommend.

Good times! It was my first time on a quad and my friends are all very experienced. We all had a great time. Very dusty so definitely bring sunglasses.

Such a fun experience! We drove around in quads through small towns and got to see all of the beautiful scenery that you can’t see in a car.

Very nice tour. Thank you Carlos for being such a wonderful guide.
