The best part of our 10 day Peru trip is probably the full day Sacred Valley Tour with David Ramos (covering Maras, Moray and Pisaq). We were with Gate 1 tour and there are free inclusions in our trip, so we just really wanted to cover areas that was not included in our group tour. I found out about him through several forums in TA (thanks to those people who posted his email and number). I emailed him for inquiry and he was very prompt in responding. At first I was very skeptical but based on his response time and other TA users feedback, we decided to book a full day trip with him.
He picked us up in our hotel in Urubamba on a timely manner as agreed (his car was very clean and comfortable). Our tour started from 9AM to 6:15PM. We covered Maras, Moray, Pisaq Market and Ruins. It was amazing. We also had several stops on great areas where the view is awesome. David is not only a great driver, but he is an excellent tour guide! My gosh, he knows a lot of things, all of our questions were properly answered. He is very passionate of what he do. The cost of the trip was so worth it! Like us, he also love photography so he would recommend to stop on places to get a great picture! On our trip to Maras, he even guided us to walk downhill and actually get to get close with the salt pools. The spot he took at at Maras to have a view of the SV and Urubamba river was just amazing! Plus we even had a stop to appreciate the mountain ranges and farms on our way to Maras.
For lunch, we stopped by at Inca House in Urubamba and it was so delicious (free pisco sour and do order their chicha morada - probably the best place we had in SV). The restaurants buffet menu is excellent.
We hiked down to the Moray and visited all the three terraces. Also on our trip to Pisac, he showed us the burial site of the Incas and if not to his keen eyes, we would have not noticed those skulls hanging in the side of the mountain. On Pisaq market, he brought us to a store where they showed us how they make the silver jewelries.
David is a great guy and I hope his passion about the history of Incas and Peru is appreciated and recognized. I would highly recommend his service, trust me, its worth it.
