Pick-up at your place

This is a half a day tour. We’ll start at 8:30 am by picking you up at your hotel. With our private mini bus, we’ll head towards Moray and its circular terraces of experimentation about agriculture in the Inca´s time. We will then go to the salt mines of Maras. There you will see that 3 different types of salt with various colours are produced. The salines are still nowadays managed by hand by local people. We will be back in Cusco by noon. Note: the price listed is for a tour shared with other people. If you'd prefer a private tour (max 6 pax), the price will be 135 euros per person.
