Full description

Get back to nature in the dramatic landscapes of the Andes Mountains and experience the amazing scenery of the Sacred Valley by Quad Bike. Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in Cusco, and then journey through typical villages to reach the colonial town of Maras. Admire the pretty church and rustic buildings of the pretty town center and watch the locals going about their everyday lives farming the surroundings. Visit the archaeological site of Moray to see the incredible terraced holes that form an amphitheater-like depression on the surface of the land. Learn how the holes were used by the Incas in ancient times to acclimatize seeds from the Andes Mountains.

Next, visit the salt ponds that the locals continue to work to obtain salt at the mines, just as their ancestors did in the days of the Inca Empire.

Was a fantastic experience overall and I'd definitely recommend it to others, if you're sick of sitting on a bus and train or just walking/hiking and want to try something different, not scared of some adventure and getting dusty. Great sights and landscapes and not too long - perfect for a half day trip to kill time before flying back home - I did exactly that and then full body massage in town, nearby the drop off spot :) Couldn't be more perfect!

Pickup was a bit late but is to be expected with the amount of people that showed up and how narrows the roads are. Other than that amazing tour! Christian our tour guide was very knowledgeable and spoke good English so it made our tour even better! Quad bikes were really easy to use as well, highly recommend !

The activities were good, but very unpunctual, they called us at 11:50 am and it was not true, they returned us to the hotel and they picked us up at 1:30, we left almost at 2. Then the motorcycle of one of the tourists broke the tire and They didn't change the motorcycle so the delay waiting for him caused everything to be delayed and when they took us to the salt flats it was already night and nothing was visible. Total we lost half of the tour.
