    Arrive in Cusco, the ancient capital of the Inca Empire. Meet your MT Sobek representative at the airport and transfer to your hotel near the city's main square.

Located in Chinchero, half way between Cusco and the Sacred Valley, Agricultural Engineer Manuel Choqque researches and experiments with native potatoes and tubers to improve their nutritional composition, and in the process produces a rich variety of colors, flavors and textures that are grabbing the attention of the culinary world. He welcomes you privately for a fascinating presentation about his work, as well as a chance to taste traditional uchucuta sauce, made out of Peruvian hot peppers, and his surprisingly delicious Andean tuber and potato wines. Also learn how traditional Andean textiles are made during a private demonstration, and stroll through Chinchero's lively weekly market. Continue to the ancient site of Moray to see its impressive circular terraces that were used by the Incas as a botanical laboratory. Stop for a memorable lunch prepared by top chefs at the Iskay Maras Home, surrounded by a lovely landscape of high mountains and green fields.
