Trip was really nice. 3 interesting and beautiful places. Good guide who explained everything and also helped with taking photos. There are two things which we didn't like. First the fact that when we have bought a trip, there was information that we will be taken from the hotel. Then local organizer contacted us that we had to go 15 minutes to the pickup point. Moreover, few hours later, Get Your Guide sent us automatic email that we will be picked up from the hotel. We were really confused... Also, we didn't feel comfortable and safe as due to covid pandemic everyone should wear a mask but people didn't do this. There were 3 sick people without masks, who were coughing in the bus during the trip and no one from leaders asked them to put masks on their faces! Driver and guide were save because their seats were separated however I would expect that they will pay attention on trip attendees and educate them about rules for safety of all.

Half day Maras, Moray, and weavers

Tour included Moray, Maras salt mine, and an additional stop at the Chincheros weavers. I like that the guide took us through Moray, but would have liked more time to walk up to the highest view point for the classic overlook picture or it should at least be made clear that the tour won't go there. Too much time spent at the weavers.
