1-2 hours

Enjoy a tour of the Urubamba Market without a cooking class. Delight in the colors, smells, and sounds of our local hub of commerce and produce. This is the grocery store of the Andean people, and here you can learn all about their traditional foods and local produce.

Learn about (and taste) of the many unique local Andean products, and if you want, sit down for a fresh fruit/ vegetable juice, or a traditional simple meal.

Note to solo travelers: The minimum charge is $30, which allows for a donation to support the Children’s  Home as well as paying for your guide’s time and planning. If you’d like to do this tour solo, just register as if for two people. Thank you!

You can change the quantity in the shopping cart to reflect the size of your group.

What's your preferred date? It's OK if this is only approximate right now. We'll be in touch by e-mail to confirm our availability and we'll work with you to find the right time and meeting place.

Description

All hikes, tours, and classes are led by friendly, experienced adolescent youth guides from Niños Del Sol Children’s Home.  Your payment, which is a tax-deductible donation in the United States, helps support the Niños Del Sol Children’s Home in Urubamba and our companion residence for college kids in Cusco.

Our adolescent and young adult Niños designed these programs on their own, guided by their lifelong interactions with tourists to the Sacred Valley. They’re learning business skills as well as practicing their English while they earn a part-time income and help support their home.

We are contacted by many tourists who want to visit our home, bringing gifts or offering the gift of their labor, but for kids, this is a better option. They are learning how to earn rather than passively receive, and they are meeting donors as equals, with something of value to offer in exchange for your donation. Thank you for supporting this program.

    I brought two Women’s Adventure groups to Peru in early 2019, and both groups said their market tour with Avishai was one of the highlights of their trip. It was enlightening and entertaining, and it was an opportunity to get really close to local life and understand Peru on a different level. Several of the women think Avishai should have his own television show describing the joys of fresh organic produce from the Sacred Valley!

    Disclaimer: I serve on the board of this organization, but as a businesswoman I wouldn’t bring my groups here if I didn’t know that that the experience would be outstanding.
