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.

What to expect

Get ready for something special. We're travelling to Cusco with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you'll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing guide.

The tour will last about 60 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Cusco. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.


Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.

The majority of your tip goes directly to support the guide's hard work, while the rest helps Heygo continue to build a place that brings the world closer together.
