Live an unforgettable experience with the teenage mothers of Casa Mantay and their children, get to know this great family and its history, visit and participate in the leather workshop which employs these young women, and have lunch with the entire team on this Cusco Women tour.
Your guide will pick you up around 10:30am from your Cusco hotel and you’ll head towards the San Jerónimo neighborhood where Casa Mantay is located by private or public transport, depending on the size of your group. If you prefer, we can add private transportation for smaller groups as well for an extra fee.
30 minutes later you’ll be welcomed with a tasty mate (tea) at Casa Mantay. The local guide will show you around and tell you more about the history and organization of the Mantay House, which shelters, guides and trains young mothers, between 12 and 18 years old, in the company of their children. It is a place where they find protection and respect.
After the tour of the house, we’ll go to the “Mantay Workshop”, where some of the mothers work in the manufacture of leather products. In 2012, the workshop received an award for the quality of their products by the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism of Peru. The mothers will show you how to recognize real leather and will tell you more about the production process of their products. Each participant will make a small souvenir that they can take home.
You will be back at your hotel around 2:30pm.
