Ever go on holiday and want... something different?
Want to get away from the crowds, or what to have special experiences where you connect with the people? our alternative tourism links provide this opportunity.
We really recommend studying Spanish (or even Quechua!) classes for a couple of days while in cusco. your holiday will be so richer when you can communicate a little with the locals
Special interest tours include specially organised trips for families, seniors, weavers - whatever your interest
We highly advise offering a few days... or even a week in Cusco soaking up its' fantastic atmosphere whilst studying Spanish. For most English speakers, its easy to pick up a few phrases! You will find that your travels are greatly enriched with a small amount of vocabulary!
We recommend that you try out the following schools:
Amauta Spanish School, located in Calle Suecia, one block from the plaza. They offer a wide range of Spanish study options, accomodation and cultural activities.
Excel Spanish School, located close to the centre offers high quality Spanish classes, at good prices and for flexible delivery.
Quechua, the language of the Incas, is also fun to learn for an hour or two. You can really amaze the people on your treks or in the market!
Here is a great website with some Quechua phrases.
