About
Peru’s Inca architecture attracts visitors from all over the world, but the country’s impressive ruins are only part of the story. On this private full-day sightseeing tour, visit the fertile terraces of Moray, salt mines of Maras, and fortified walls of Chinchero, and learn not just how the Incas lived, but also how they thrived. Round-trip travel from Cusco and a stop to learn Inca textile-weaving techniques are also included.

What to expect
Your private guide picks you up in the morning at your Cusco accommodation. Travel in comfort past wheat fields and traditional villages to Moray, enjoy sweeping views over the snow-capped Andes Mountains. On arrival, explore Moray and its amphitheater-like terraces used by the Incas to grow crops and gain insight from your guide into a civilization lost in time. Next, head to the salt mines in the village of Maras with more than 3,000 salt pools carved into the mountains—where salt is believed to have been produced since pre-Inca times. Continue on to Chinchero, home to ancient Incan structures including altars, squares, and fortified walls, alongside more modern colonial buildings. In the afternoon, delve into the world of Andean textiles and discover traditional weaving techniques dating back to the days of the Incas. Your tour concludes with transport to your Cusco hotel.

These guys are the best. From our hotel pickup to the end of the trip, they offered us a private, flexible informative and breathtaking tour of the Sacred Valley. We happened upon a festival in one of the towns, so they offered us the option to spend more time there and we revised the rest of the itinerary to fit. They even threw in a couple of extra stops to boot. What a great day!

We had booked a privat tour through the sacred valley. All our questions by email were answered immediately. They helped us out with all our individual requests, like dropping us off in Ollantaytambo instead of Cusco (so we could take the train to Aguas Clients from here), like puchasing our tickets for Maccu Picchu (as the official website from the Cusco tourist office didn't work for us) or like taking our daughter's wheelchair with us. Our guide Saul picked us up promptly with the driver in a very comfortable van. The driver was very good and Saul spoke very good English and answered all our questions in a very competent way. He even pushed our oldest daughter up the hills in her wheelchair, and had a smelly thing for our younger daughter, who got a bit altitude sick during the car ride. We enjoyed traveling with this company a lot!

We had a wonderful private tour with 3 of us visiting Chinchero, Maras, Moray with Inkayni Tours. The entire experience was excellent. We were picked up at our hotel in the morning and Freddie was an amazing guide the entire day. We learned an incredible amount about the Inca culture and traditions from him. The scenery is gorgeous and each site was very unique. A very memorable day and we will highly recommend it.

We had booked the private tour but when they came to pick us up there was someone else in the van who was on our tour with us. Then the tour title indicates it’s a full day tour and it turned out to be just a half day tour. The salt mines, moray and Chinchero themselves were amazing, definitely worth going to. The guide was not too bad but would’ve been nice if he was more upbeat and engaging. Overall it was okay for us and we got to see the sites we wanted to but I would probably go with another tour company next time.

We took the Maras, Moray, and Chinchero private day trip and added on Ollantaytambo for a small cost. Maras, Moray, and Ollantaytambo were the highlights. Our guide, Jonathan never rushed us as we took tons of pictures and was always willing to answer any questions, and he even gave us some additional information on Machu Picchu on the way home. He arrived at our hotel on time and re-arranged the order of our tour so that we got in to see the Mara salt pools and Ollantaytambo before the crowds got in which was very awesome of him. Our driver was exceptionally skilled and we drove by some really wonderful mountain views. Lunch wasn't included, but there was time to grab something to eat. Overall, wonderful tour.

Our first full day in Cusco, decided to take this tour because it seemed really interesting and thought it would be a good way to acclimatize to the altitude without over exerting ourselves - and it was all that and more!

We were picked up at our hotel on time, given a small gift (and water) and off we went! Our guide Carlitos was very knowledgeable and our driver, Al (sorry don't know how to spell his name) was excellent. Can't remember the last time my car door was opened for me so many times - he was very polite, sweet and solicitous- and a great driver. Carlitos explained all the history behind the Maras salt pans, the Moray ruins and Chinchera. He also acted as our professional photographer at all the sites- which was greatly appreciated.

All in all we had a fab day, lots of laughs, and learnt lots too.

When we got to Cusco my wife got very severe altitude sickness and could barely do anything - we even had to go see a doctor. I informed Inkayni tours that we would have to cancel last minute (I gave them less than 24 hours notice). Instead of giving the standard response that they couldn't do anything, they refunded half the tour price! It was such a nice thing to do on Christmas and I cannot express my gratitude enough for how understanding and nice their team was.

We enjoyed a well planned tour with Ronald as our guide and he was very knowledgeable and passionate about history and his culture. The tour to Chinchero was our highlight. Bring some extra money to purchase some alpaca goods. It was very convenient to be privately driven to all the locations. The tour can be done differently, large group or individual etc. However, the information on the history/culture and region wouldn't be as in depth.

Thank you again.
