Full description

Get back to nature in the dramatic landscapes of the Andes Mountains and experience the amazing scenery of the Sacred Valley by Quad Bike. Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in Cusco, and then journey through typical villages to reach the colonial town of Maras. Admire the pretty church and rustic buildings of the pretty town center and watch the locals going about their everyday lives farming the surroundings. Visit the archaeological site of Moray to see the incredible terraced holes that form an amphitheater-like depression on the surface of the land. Learn how the holes were used by the Incas in ancient times to acclimatize seeds from the Andes Mountains.

The activities were good, but very unpunctual, they called us at 11:50 am and it was not true, they returned us to the hotel and they picked us up at 1:30, we left almost at 2. Then the motorcycle of one of the tourists broke the tire and They didn't change the motorcycle so the delay waiting for him caused everything to be delayed and when they took us to the salt flats it was already night and nothing was visible. Total we lost half of the tour.

It was my first time on an ATV, so wasn’t really sure how it’s going to go but it was super fun! Highly recommend it if you’ve never done it before. It’s safe and you quickly figure things out. Bring some clothes that can get dirty because otherwise you’ll be covered in dust head to toe. You’ll visit the salt mine by bus, there’s way too much traffic there to do it on an ATV.

Very fun. But be prepared for extreme dust! Wear clothes that are easily washable and you cannot wear them again before washing. We took a light jacket but I wish I’d have brought a spare pair of trousers. The quad bikes themselves were very easy to use and we travelled 8 miles to Maras and the guide explained it to us and then 80 miles back at a top speed of 30mph. It is bumpy but that’s part of the fun. They then drove us to Moray salt mines and the guide showed us around.
