Cusco to the Sacred Valley
On this Cusco tour, you will travel into the Sacred Valley, and also back in time to the days of the Incas. Travel up into the hills to visit the isolated Amaru community, who have maintained the language, colourful dress and traditional way of life of their imperial ancestors. Learn about the native plants that the Amaru people use in medicine and to dye their vibrant clothes, and try your hand at traditional wool spinning techniques. Discover the traditional weaving techniques that are used to create the Peruvian textiles that you will have seen in local markets. Afterwards, sit down for an organic lunch harvested from the nearby fields before returning to Cusco in the evening.
