We start the tour with the pick up from your hotel at 06:30 hours to go to the picturesque town of Chinchero where we will appreciate the remains of the royal hacienda of Tupac Inca Yupanqui, a beautiful colonial temple with interesting frescoes on the porch (this place was built on the foundations of an Inca construction). We can also admire the Inca walls in the main square of the village, etc.

Maras

Continuing with our tour we will visit the town of Maras, located 52 km from Cusco at an altitude of 3,380 m; the importance of the place is given by the mines of salt that it possesses; these salt mines are composed of about 3000 small wells of approximately 5 m ² from which the salt is extracted. The production of salt follows the process of extraction and drying of the salt water from an underground spring. The “Salinas de Maras” have been exploited since the time of the Incas in which it was used as a means of economic exchange.

Moray is a group of terraces or circular platforms of different sizes, which at the time of the Incas were used as an agricultural experimental center; this was where they performed their studies of adapting plants to new ecosystems.

We didn't quite realize how much was going to be packed into one day. We saw every site in the Sacred Valley which is too much. If I could do it again, I'd choose a tour that visited Ollantaytambo, Pisac, Moray, and the textile presentation. Our guide tried to provide information while we drove around in the bus, but the microphone and audio system made it almost impossible to understand what she was saying. If you have an aversion to buffets, I highly suggest bringing a boxed lunch from your hotel. This trip will take 13 hours, even if your guide says otherwise at the start of the day, so bring snacks.

Myself and 3 other students all did a 14 day tour from Puno to Cusco including a stay on Amantani island, all of our day trips to rainbow mountain, humantay lake, the Inca sites and of course Machu Picchu. Marcos and the team were incredible, so friendly, so flexible and extremely helpful. We had the most amazing time and it worked out being excellent value for money. Marcos himself is so knowledgable about the area and they all went above and beyond to ensure we had the best time!! I would recommend this to everyone and I can’t thank them all enough for the experience!! (They even bought cake and balloons for my friends 21dt bday!).

The day was jam-packed with information and sights all interesting in different ways. Jose Maria was more patient than me as some of the guests repeatedly returned late but he managed to keep us on schedule, and we didn't lose anyone. One sign of a good tour company is how they deal with issues and Happy Gringo Tours excels in that regard. Traffic was bad in Cusco so my pickup was very late but Juan kept me apprised of the situation so I did not feel abandoned or concerned that nobody would come as has happened with other companies. Thanks, Juan and Happy Gringo Tours!

Our Sacred Valley tour was fantastic with Happy Gringo Tours Peru. The Inca sites as Pisac, Olantaytambo and Moray were amazing Inca ruins. Marko was our tour guide who gave us a lot information about Incan history. The buffet lunch at Urubamba province was very good, ceviche trout was very delicious and the transfer was always on time. I will recommend my parents to travel with Gringo Tours and Marko Polo.

I made a serious error when booking this tour. I had my days mixed up and was not able to do my full day tour as I arrived in cusco at noon. Happy Gringro could have just kept my payment and not honored my trip as it was my error in booking. They actually called me and made arrangements to Make a modified personal tour for me and my wife later the same day. That is customer service at its best. I had the error they had no obligation to help and they did. I strongly recommend this group. Marco was very knowledgeable .
