This was the first stop in an all day Sacred Valley Tour. I agree with other reviews that this animal reserve is more like a petting zoo. For anyone wondering how to tell the difference between one Camelid and another this is an excellent quick...More

It was a 30 minute stop from Urumbamba to Cusco. TaxiDatum was helpful in coordinating the venue, though I would hardly say that you are missing much if you overlooked it. The shop and textile information on site was interesting. The Llamas are tethered and...More
