I started the tour at 8 am and was back in Cusco by 5 pm. Christopher and I went high up into the Andes and swept along single tracks in and out of villages through the Sacred Valley.
The Sacred Valley comprises of lots of different tourist attractions including the Sacred Valley of the Incas, Inca ruin, and andenes at Pisac and Maras, Peru.
Salinas de Maras have hundreds of evaporating salt ponds and are crazy beautiful from above. You start from up top and down a canyon that descends into the Rio Vilcanota and the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
All in all a fascinating day!
Peru Moto Tours
I hired a personal tour guide, Christopher from Peru Moto Tours, to take me to Sacred Valley. I had my own bike, so it was a little bit of a custom tour. All I can say is that my guide Christopher was incredible.
I visited places I had not even heard about. We did about 50% off the road and on the road, the off-road wasn’t too difficult and was fun. All I can say is if you visit Cusco, go straight to this business and organize a tour; they also have a bunch of adventure bikes in store for hire as part of a range of tours on offer.
The staff are excellent too and speak good English. Thank you, Christopher, for a wonderful experience!
Total Cost: $120 + $30 Tip for Christopher
Inka`s House Restaurant
Inka`s House Restaurant has a great buffet lunch and outdoor experience with sensational food and service. Stopped off here for lunch after riding my moto through the region. Parking out front (not secure) and decent WiFi at the property.
Was $15 all you can eat and the buffet was huge. You can select salads, lamb, poultry dishes with lots of variety.
The Sacred Valley, Peru
The Sacred Valley is a region in Peru’s Andean highlands. Along with the nearby town of Cusco and the ancient city of Machu Picchu, it formed the heart of the Inca Empire. Stretching roughly 60 kilometers, it’s an area of fertile farmland and Spanish colonial villages like Pisac and Ollantaytambo. Pisac is known for its Sunday handicraft market and hilltop Incan citadel. From Wikipedia
