Full-Day Private tour: Chinchero, Maras, Moray, Ollantaytambo, Pisac Market

You will start your tour in Chinchero, which was one of the most important populations during the Inca empire.

Then visit Maras, an impressive complex of salt mining. They are large deposits of salt used for exchange for other products with other regions of the empire. On the other hand, the archaeological site of Moray consists of mysterious concentric circular terraces that for some investigators would be an agricultural research center. Free time for lunch and then visit Ollantaytambo, a typical example of urban planning of the Incas. The archaeological complex called fortress although it was a tambo, a resting and lodging place for long distance travellers. Finally visit the citadel of Pisac. The market has dozens of stalls displaying and selling goods crafted by residents of the area. After the visit return to your hotel.
