Itinerary

ITINERARY SACRED VALLEY ATV TOUR

DAY 1

Andes Tour through Maras & Moray in ATV

The off-road vehicle is a Honda ATV TRX 250, powerful outdoor adventure equipment. We carry out the Sacred Valley ATV tourist circuit from Cruzpata to Moray, which has impressive panoramic views. The high plateau of Moray Maras is known as the balcony of the Sacred Valley for having beautiful views of the Andes Mountain range with its eternal snow-capped mountains plus valleys and ravines.

We start the trip from the city of Cusco at 07:40 towards the northwest via POROY to reach CHINCHERO. The vehicle leaves us in one of the TEXTILE CENTERS OF CHINCHERO to visit it and learn a little about the Inca culture. Organized families from different areas of Chinchero: They offer us a fresh coca leaf mate to adapt to the altitude.

The Chincherinas families organically explain the elaboration of textiles. We continue the visit with the ruins of Chinchero, where several Inca walls of excellent texture can be seen joined together as a polishing system. Chinchero is the royal house of the ninth Inca ruler and a plant experimentation site. We return to our vehicle to the RAQCHI viewpoint to have unique views of the Sacred Valley and then continue the trip to the CRUZ PATA ATV BASE.

START THE ATV TOUR

The tour experience takes about 45 minutes to drive the ATVs from CRUZPATA to MORAY, and back to the BASE is the same travel time. The last visit is to the Salineras of Maras. We do it in our vehicle because it is FORBIDDEN TO DRIVE ATVs in the Salineras area. After all, there are cliffs, so it is off-limits for the safety of every visitor.

Didactic explanation of off-road machines

  • The ATVs are Honda TRX 250, robust for all-terrain and complex of the Sacred Valley, Maras, Moray, the Huaypo Lagoon, etc.
  • You have a small throttle lever on the right-hand side rudder that works by pressing your thumb; there is also the handbrake.
  • The button changes from the first to the fifth, shown on the handle on the left side.
  • We have a small practice circuit for driving ATVs before starting the tour of the Andes. The trail has holes, slopes, etc., to adapt to the Maras Moray ATV tourist circuit.

Make your visit to the Sacred Valley an adventure with a fun-filled ATV Tour! See famous sacred sites like Moray, Chinchero, Maras, and more from behind the wheel of an ATV as you explore.

WHAT NOT TO DO WHEN RIDING YOUR ATV MORAY TOUR?
  1. While riding the ATV, you must wear a safety helmet.
  2. Please do not put your leg(s) on the ATV while it is in motion.
  3. Do not perform risky maneuvers when driving Quads.
  4. Stay on the right side of the trail or dirt road.
  5. Do not operate your machine with one hand!
  6. Do not take photos or videos while driving. If you are going to take pictures or film videos, you must bring an adapter to put your GoPro on your chest, helmet, or hooks to place them somewhere on the ATV.
  7. Slow down on ALL CURVES and turn slowly through curves.
  8. There are hills between ups and downs in different tour sections, so keep an eye on the trail and follow the directions of your local ATV guide and tour guide.
  9. Do not accelerate too much or try to run; adventure is about enjoying the outdoors without accidents.

NOTE: We carry out this and other actions for the safety of each visitor to the Maras Moray ATV tourist circuit. If there is an accident, we have our private vehicle at the ATV BASE. We immediately call the car to assist the explorer or go directly to the hospital, depending on the severity of the case. Avoid any accident; driving defensively and thus enjoying the Cusco ATV tour and having a unique experience in the Peruvian Andes is better.

Wonderul site, great tour operator and excellent guide We had an evening flight so wanted to do something during the first half of the day, really glad we picked this half-day tour of the Sillustani ruins. The tour agent (Kondor Path Tours) was very flexible about our pickup time and dropoff options, so that really helped. We were able to arrange a later pickup in the morning that included all our luggage and then they dropped us off at the Juliaca airport after the tour. But the Sillustani towers themselves are a real treat to see and learn about all their history. The site itself is very serene and beautiful, with the lake in the background from the main viewpoint. Our tour guide (Richy/Ricardo) was excellent and very helpful and knowledgeable. He gave us not only the ancient history of Sillustani and the adjoining areas, but also a more contemporary history of Peru and the Puno region I have to add that he went over and above by even helping us to check our bags in at JUL airport!

Maras and Moray + Pachamanca Easily the best tour experience I had during my trip to Peru. I highly recommend Kondor Tours as the customer service is top-notch. James responded to my queries almost instantly each time and was very helpful. We were even treated to a can of cusquenia beer each when we visited the office! Our guide Alfredo was absolutely amazing and we were fortunate to have him as our guide for the tour. He is very passionate about his job and shared so much valuable information with us. He has a very candid character and we were very comfortable throughout! I highly recommend requesting for him as your guide (the best we had while touring Peru for 3 weeks). Also, I would say opting in for and additional traditional peruvian pachamanca meal experience must not be missed. The community people were very warm and gracious hosts and it is eye opening to witness the preparation of such a traditional feast normally done only for special occasions like weddings. We even had time for dancing! Two thumbs up for sure!

3-day Choquequirao Trek We took a three-day private group trek to Choquequirao as a family of five. Kondor Path Tours organized a pick-up and drop-off in Urubamba instead of Cusco and did an extra stop at the Saywhite archeological site. Everything went very smoothly during the entire trip, meals and accommodation were as expected or better. The trek itself is quite demanding (particularly in three days), but the nature/ views/ Choquequirao/ dearth of tourists largely compensate. Anyway, we were looking for a physical challenge! Our guide Oron was great. Explaining, motivating, solving potential problems/ demands. We would definitely recommend Kondor Path Tours.

Proffecional company and perfect guide Kondor Path Tours are so proffecional and easy to work with. We went with them on the 2 days short Inca trail to Machu Picchu with our three children. The correspondence was great and everything was perfectly planned in every detail. Our guide Alfredo was so friendly, knowledgeable and pleasant to be around! Thank you Kondor Path Tours - we couldn’t have asked for more!!

Alittle bit of everything We had a last minute change of plans when it came to our tour. We were supposed to visit the rainbow mountain but with the recent protesting we called to see if we could change last minute and they were very accommodating. Odon and Fernando were amazing! They took us to see multiple attractions and made us feel very at home. And kudos to Renee for the amazing driving. I would highly recommend using this company for a tour. We will definitely use them if we ever come back!

Family vacation Kondor path tours arranged a couple of private tours on our last vacation in Peru. Our first tour was the Rainbow Mountains and the next day we did the sacred Valley Tour. The administrative services were excellent, we met at our hotel the day before our tours and our head guide, Fredy, explained everything perfectly, including what to wear and bring for each tour. On the tour days, our guides (Fredy and Juan Carlos) and driver (Juan Carlos) were great! very knowledgeable, considerate about our party, always helpful and ready to answer questions and meet the expectations (completely different expectations because we had different ages in our party (from 11 to 69 years)) of each party member. The rainbow mountain is awesome and is is really helpful to go with a guide that knows about the area, but also about hiking!!!

Excellent guide who stays with you for the entire day The Vinicunca one-day horse tour was fantastic. The friendly and informative Freddy guided us for the entire bus ride and mountain trek. He knew where to stand to get the best photos and made everything fun and accommodating. The horse ride up made it much easier to enjoy the final hike. Lunch was large and tasty. Door to door service.
