This was wonderful! We were very lucky that we arrived at the same time as another couple who had a guide who spoke English. (We did tip him, but he was happy to answer our questions anyway). Great explanation of the process and the family...More
We found this place thanks to the Lonely Planet and we really appreciated the sympathy of this family. They explained us all the details how to make tissues and clothes in the traditional ecuadorian way. It is a family business and they really want to...More

Amazing oratory history, warm welcome and great memories. Senor Andrango and his family are talented weavers; more importantly they are wonderfully warm and delightful. We are home now and our family love the wall rugs we purchased for them. Wish we bought more as they...More
My husband and I love weavings and I had read about Tahuantinsuyo Weaving Workshop prior to our visit. We arranged a taxi through our hotel to take us here and a few other nearby sights such as the waterfall. We were not disappointed. They had...More
