About the tour

We will see the village of Chincheros where people still speak the Inca's language and where time stood still from the 1500’s and until now. Join Mike as we watch the charming ladies who work there create hand-made textiles in traditional styles. Learn about the natural dyes that give the fabrics their distinctive colors.
