Get a brief but educational tour about the history, care and breeding of alpaca, llama, vicunya and guanaco from a knowledgeable English-speaking guide then get to meet and feed the animals as a reward after. The museum has no entrance fee but we recommend that one gives a donation to the guide. It was both informative and loads of fun!!!

This is a nice place to visit all the different variety of camelids. They have llama, vicuna, alpaca, etc. You can feed the camelids alfalfa too. The gift shop is amazingly nice and they have bathrooms. There was no cost to the consumer / no admission. They have historical interpreters showing how to weave and how the dyes are made... More

Great collections of friendly Llama and Alpaca. Free admission. Beautiful view of the valleys on the way here from Pisac. We enjoyed feeding and petting those beautiful animals.

This farm gets you close to alpacas, vicunas, llamas and more. Educational displays help place this farming industry in historical ad cultural perspective.

You'll see them around the Sacred Valley roaming freely, but Awana Kancha puts alpaca, llama, vicuna, and guanacos in close quarters so we can see the similarities and differences of these camelids. Touristy but interesting.

A good short stop to grab some air ( thin as it is !) - go to the loo and get to see some cute animals with the necessary shop to buy anything woollen!

A stop on our tour which was very interesting. Learn the difference between llamas and alpacas and the various types and the chance to see them up close and feed them. Also a nice description of how the yarn is made and dyed using different plants, herbs and other materials to make different colors. Large shop with lots of beautiful... More

Great place for 30 minutes. You get to see the various animal and can feed and pet them. There is a place to wash your hands at the shop selling snakes

This was our first stop in Peru. We learned about the different types of llamas, alpacas, vicunas and guanaco. It was very helpful to learn about these animals early. Nice gift shop with many alpaca products. Also an attached Sol store that specializes in baby alpaca products. I would have liked to have had more time to shop after the... More
