You VSA guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel at 7:30am.

We then continue to visiting Moray, the agricultural testing site of the Incas while passing through beautiful green lush valleys and begin to see snow capped peaks of the Andes. The Incas carved out the dome-like shaped into the ground to test out optimal growing temperatures for difference crops. After spending 30-45minutes exploring, we drive 15minutes to Maras, where we will explore and learn about the ancient salt mines.
