Educational and Cultural Experiences
Live of indigenous communities
44 different languages are spoken in Peru, of which 40 are of Amazonian origin. The Machiguengas, a group of 10,000 lowland indigenous Peoples, have mantained their language and culture but are open to intercultural exchange.
Culinary experience and cooking classes
Peru's cuisine and world renowned chefs have increasingly gained global recognition. From market visits with fruit tasting (7 kids of bananas!), to group cooking classes in chocolate salons, and private classes with a chef in a relaxed atmosphere of an apartment, these experiences are suitable for ages 5 and up.
Potatoes and the guinea pigs
It can be shocking to learn that guinea pigs are on the menu in some parts of the Andes. They grow up living in large family groups eating mostly gras and often live inside the family home.
Of Lamas and Alpacas
Alpakas like high elevation. Rather than photographing baby Alpacas on the streets in Cusco, we offer the opportunity to enjoy herds of lamas and alpacas in the mountains above the Sacred Valley. They are very social animals and spend most of their time roaming around the plateau for edible gras called Ichu.
Learning programs for college students
Peru has so many authentic learning experiences to offer. High school and college students will benefit from the hands on activities in local villages in the Amazon and Andes. Where do I find drinking water in the Amazon, how to grow and harvest your own food, and most importantly for our current generation.....how do you live without internet.
Children and family programs
Travel with children should be enjoyable for the entire family and our team (which includes experienced travel moms) will help you find the ideal combination of age appropriate activities and children friendly hotels and restaurants. We also know that children are most interested in other children and thus joining for soccer or having the opportunity to peak into a local school can be arranged upon request.
