The Maras and Moray Tour
Enjoy a variety of amazing views, traditional towns and culture, Andean farming techniques, and remarkable saltpans in this one-day tour right outside of Cusco. First, our itinerary takes us to the Incan ruins of Moray – an impressive agricultural center that demonstrates the ancient Incan’s mastery of high-altitude crop growing. Next, we will visit the colonial town of Maras. Maras is known for its nearby salt evaporation ponds – which have been in use since the time of the Incas! We can also enjoy an optional hike through the salt evaporation fields as we make our way towards the Sacred Valley before heading back to Cusco.
The Lake Titicaca Day Tour
Set high in the Andes at 12,500 feet above sea level, the beautiful and mysterious Lake Titicaca is divided between Peru and Bolivia. It is much more than the world’s highest navigable stretch of water – it is also known as the birthplace of the Incas and has been considered sacred since pre-Columbus times. The expansive lake is studded with many beautiful islands - both natural and man-made. This exciting itinerary takes us out onto Lake Titicaca to visit the floating islands of Uros and the natural island of Taquile.
The Arequipa Day Tour
In this one-day tour, you will explore the beautiful colonial city of Arequipa. Known as the “White” City due to the white volcanic rock incorporated into the local architecture, Arequipa is Peru’s 2nd biggest city and one of its most beautiful.
