Culture Xplorers

Map
117 S.17th St., Philadelphia, PA 19103

Spend time between Lima, the Sacred Valley, and Machu Picchu learning from culinary masters. You will make ceviche, or chopped fish with lime juice and spices, and cook pachamanca, or a meat dish, in an earthen oven—all while benefiting local artisans and organic farmers. American Jim Kane leads Culture Xplorers, which aims for a total immersion experience that includes studying under some of Lima’s finest modern chefs, witnessing millennia-old weaving techniques in the Sacred Valley, and bargaining for cocoa in Cuzco.

 

Trip Tip: Hit the Stairmaster before you head out. While the walking is not extreme, the altitude makes it feel like a marathon at times.
