Arriving in Machu Picchu, Peru, is one of those pinch-me-I’m-dreaming travel moments. Social Impact Traveller recommends this tour to travellers who want to experience Machu Picchu and beyond – and support local communities.
On this Peru tour, meet the women of a local weaving workshop to learn more about this ancient craft passed on from generations. Weaving textiles is an important part of Peruvian culture, dating back to the time of the Inca Empire. The workshop empowers Peruvian women, providing them opportunities to support their families.
On this Peru tour, you’ll visit a local farm-to-table restaurant run by a community of local women. Expect fresh food elevated with the guidance of one of Peru’s top chefs. All food is cultivated locally. You will taste traditional dishes followed by a perfect desert of cake with chicha (ground purple maize) sauce.
We have first-hand experience in Peru and can recommend the trip that is the right fit for you, regardless of whether you are a hiker or not. We are also keen to introduce hikers to different paths on the Inca Trail that aren’t quite as beaten as the one to Machu Picchu. The Lares Trek is a top option which relieves pressure from the main trail, but delivers an equally exciting trek – and, of course, you will get to experience Machu Picchu.
