Threads of Peru has been working with its supporter, the trekking company Apus Peru for four years now - $15.00 of each Apus Peru tour goes directly to Threads of Peru and from us it goes towards helping the women in the communities.
For this reason we always encourage people that are planning a trip to Peru to take a look at the Apus website -http://www.apus-peru.com/ especially since they are now offering tours with 10% going towards Threads of Peru!
Here's what our friends at Apus had to say:
New Philanthropic Tours to support Threads of Peru work!
Its both excting and challenging to create a good itinerary for clients.
Apus Peru try to do it every day for their clients, as we design holidays that really become “trips of a lifetime” by working with people and finding out what they are interested in.
Now, Apus Peru have designed some itineraries that are genuinely unique and bring out the best in Peru so that visitors can see a different side of Peru – while contributing to a very worthwhile cause – Threads of Peru.
If you take these tours, you will directly support the people of the Andes! 10% of your overall tour price is donated to Threads of Peru.
These new Philanthropic tours include-
Andean Culture tour. (14 days), this tour takes you from Lima to Lake Titicaca, and then onto Cusco where you will have the chance to visit remote villages (either by trekking or transport, depending on your fitness) where Threads of Peru works. These tours have been created so that you can visit one of the many unique festivals that occur in Cusco, and are often not known about by the vast majority of visitors. This tour provides a fascinating insight into the culture of the Andes.

Hiking through the Andes
Peru Family Adventure (11 days) The name says it all – with this tour, families can take part in a whole range of adventures together, from easy downhill mountain biking, getting to know llamas and alpacas, to seeing where honey comes from, as well as learning more about how children in another part of the world live. While a visit to Machu Picchu is a highlight, kids often love the jungle excursions in the Amazon where they can see many beautiful native animals.
