Day 1 Ollantaytambo | Local Community Home Restoration

You will be picked up from your hotel in Ollantaytambo and driven into the community. Take a short hike to the local school, which is located about 30 minutes downhill. At the school, you will meet with the teacher in order to be informed on current nutrition and school supply needs. The list of necessities will be purchased by select participants from your group in the afternoon.

From the school, your group will go to the bridge that connects the community with the main road. This is where a truck will unload the supplies for the house restoration project. Your group, along with the family you are helping, will carry all supplies to the house that will be restored. Enjoy lunch and get to know the family a little.

After lunch, a select group of 3 participants and one guide will take a taxi to Ollantaytambo town (roundtrip taxi fare included in tour cost) in order to buy the items needed at the school. The rest of the group will continue with the restoration project, starting with cleaning the house.

Dinner will be served at the campsite - our accommodations during this tour.

Day 2 Healthy Breakfast Project | Continue with Home Restoration

After having breakfast at our campsite, you will take all of the purchased supplies to the local school kitchen where breakfast will be prepared for the children. The teacher will gather the students and your group will have the opportunity to serve them breakfast! You will also present school supplies to each child. Say goodbye to the students and school teacher, and hike back to the house restoration site. Today's goal is to repar the walls, doors, and windows of the home. Enjoy lunch as a group, then continue working.

At the end of the day, return to the campsite for dinner and some rest!

Day 3 Complete Home Restoration | Offering Ceremony

After an early breakfast, we will hike back to our working area. All previous work will be checked to make sure things are ready to continue with adding new electrical wiring. New beds will be assembled and put into place in the house, along with other pieces of furniture. After a final review and site clean-up, present their restored home to all family members!

At night, make an offering to Mother Earth by participating in a proper “Pachamama” ceremony at your campsite. The final dinner as a group will be served at the campsite.

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
