The trip in detail

We'll pick you up from your accommodation in Cusco at 9am. Our first stop, half an hour out of town, is Oropesa, Peru’s bread capital. Here we’ll meet local bakers and try their famous chuta bread. One food speciality per town is the rule in the South Valley, which is also home to Tipón (cuy – guinea pig), Saylla (chicharrones – pork with mint) and Lucre (pato – duck).

The church of Andahuaylillas is so elaborate it’s known as the Sistine Chapel of the Americas, and has to be seen to be believed, as do the deliberately-deformed skulls of departed Inca nobles displayed in the museum next door.

We’ll also visit fascinating pre-Inca ruins and the tiny village of Huasao, locally known for its
brujos (witches), who can read your future in coca leaves before we head back to Cusco.
