Examining and working with traditional designs and local expert artisans, to expand our knowledge, share skills and deepen our understanding of this amazing culture.

Sight seeing includes Machu Picchu (of course) , amazing archeological sites and a chance to see a traditional ceremony of thanks (Despacho). We visit markets, shops and studios, trying not to spend ALL our money on the tempting textiles, (old and new), jewellery, ceramics and much more!

Special for this Tour is a 2 day workshop with Master Weaver, Maximo Laura.

If you love ethnic textiles, seeing local craftspeople ply their centuries old trade, or like supporting traditional makers to preserve age old skills (rather than buy mass-produced), you will love our textile tours to Cusco and The Sacred Valley!

Learn from local makers and pick up new skills or techniques to enhance your own, explore new and different landscapes, archeological sites and intriguing towns and discover the colourful and vibrant world of Peru. You will meet like minded people and have fun with new friends on this wonderful tour of discovery!
