One of the oldest and most magical cities in South America, the ancient Incan capital city of Cusco holds many treasures for the Roberts family as they explore the narrow streets and colorful markets, which bustle with llamas and crafts. The Roberts head out by trolley from the expansive town square to get a good overview of the city and to visit some nearby Inca ruins. To get a more authentic look at the rural markets, the family heads to Pisac, where villagers come from all over the region to exchange everything from spices to guinea pigs. On the way back, the kids meet some of the local animals that have donated their fur to the craft industry at the Llama and Alpaca Farm. Back in Cusco, the family lends their time to a Peruvian charity that helps local kids, and they enjoy a colorful festival as dancers parade through cobbled streets next to ancient Incan walls.
