Peru Tour

Education with a Destination Peru 2018
October 21-November 3, 2018

The 2018 Education with a Destination Peru Tour is an opportunity to extend further into the landscape and the natural habitat of the alpaca and the people that have nurtured these incredible creatures and fiber for countless years. The trip will be led by Quechua Benefit’s board members and world-renowned alpaca judges Amanda VandenBosch and Mike Safley.

This year, the tour includes access to the International Alpaca Fiesta – the world’s most important alpaca event! The event only takes place every four years and provides visitors with fresh exhibits and novel experiences. You can extend your stay in Cuzco to visit Machu Picchu, Lost City of the Incas and one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

The trip includes hotels, group ground travel inside of Peru, and meals while in the highlands plus the opening and closing dinner for $3,995 per person. The cost does not include any airfare, Alpaca Fiesta admission or the optional trip to Machu Picchu.

The optional trip to Machu Picchu including park fees, scenic rail transport, and overnight at Aguas Calientes at Machu Picchu is $600 per person. Price based on double occupancy.

Admission to the International Alpaca Fiesta is $650 per person which includes the alpaca show, cocktail parties, and classes.

Please email steve@quechuabenefit.org or 503-628-3110 for questions and details.

All net proceeds from trip fees support health, education and economic programs for communities in the Peruvian highlands.
