HOW TO BOOK

The bike tour Moray and Maras starts with the transfer from the hotel at 8:30 am. and drive 45 minutes to arrive to Cruz Pata (it is a part of the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu tour route) where we will start the bike tour.

we will pass by a local farm and small villages where the local people are located, after 1 hour and a half of travel we will arrive at Moray, a unique archaeological site in the region. It consists of enormous depressions or holes in the surface of the ground that the Inkas made, used as a center for agricultural experimentation. What is surprising is that the average annual temperature difference between the top and bottom.

After visiting Moray we continue towards (DownHill) the northwest of the village Maras and arrive at the famous “Salt Mines”. The “salt mines” consist of about 3000 small pools with an average surface of 5 m², built on a slope of the mountain “Qaqawiñay”. People fill or “water” the pools with salt water emanating from a natural spring located at the top of the complex, then we continue to Urubamba where we take a transport service to return to Cusco (6 or 7 p.m.).

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION ¿?

1.- I am just one person, can I join some group tour?

Yes, you can, we have departure every day, feel free to decide when to go.

2.- We don’t like to go in a big group, can we arrange a private tour?

Yes you can, our group tours go with 15 or 19 people, but if you want, you can also arrange a private tour, we have different rates for it depending on how many people you are.

3.- I will travel with my family, we have two 65 YO people, do you think, can they make it?

We had people on this tour from 70 and 75 YO, the tour is not hard, but you have some small hikes into the Inca Sites where there are many steps to go up and down if you think they are not to fit to do it, we recommend to take a Private tour, that will be a perfect plan to do the tour quite easily and smoothly.

4.- We want to take the tour included Wayna Picchu or Machu Picchu mountain, do we have enough time to do it in the same day tour of Machu Picchu?

Yes, On this tour you will sleep in Aguas Calientes (Town of Machu Picchu) so you can take some of the first busses, the park opens at 6:00 am. suppose that you will get in at 7:00 am. First, you can climb the Mountain (2 or 3 and 1/2 hours hike) until 10:30 am. Then, you can go out to use the toilet or eat something and rest, then you can start the guided tour around the citadel (Around 2 hours) until 14:00 hrs. Then you will have free time to continue exploring on your own, the park is open until 5 pm. You will have like 10 hours to be there, the train departure to return is at 19:00 hrs.

5.- How about my luggage, can I take all my staff?, or where can I store it?

As this tour is only for 2 days we recommend to take only small backpacks because there are restrictions to take on the train, and also all the streets in Aguas Calientes have only pedestrian access. The rest of your stuff you can be stored at your accommodation in Cusco, All the Hotels have storage if you book the night for your way back, you can leave your stuff there, another option is that you can leave your stuff in our office, in the two options you don’t need to pay anything extra.

6.- How about the altitude, Are going to pass by other places higher than Cusco?

Cusco city is located in 3350 masl. (10990 Ft.) the only place higher than Cusco is Chinchero area 3750 masl. then you will descend to Aguas Calientes 2050 masl. Machu Picchu is located in 2450 masl (8038 Ft.); we always recommend to have at least one day in Cusco to acclimatize; altitude sickness is very different for everyone, sometimes you don’t have any problem.
