Travel to one of the wonders of the world, volunteer at a local orphanage that Project Left Behind supports, learn how to cook a traditional Peruvian meal, meet descendants of the Incas and explore their lost cities. All adventures are professionally guided, safe for all levels and ridiculously fun.

Once a year, Project Left Behind invites a small group (8-10) of amazing people to join us on an 8 day ‘voluntour’ experience to Cusco, Peru.

Join us on an amazing two day trip to Machu Picchu (YES. THE Machu Picchu.), and a three day intensive volunteer experience at a local orphanage that Project Left Behind supports. There will be some city touring, alone time in between, and probably a pisco sour or two.
