Tourists visiting the South American country of Perú will now have a new way to tour while in town: the Llama Taxi.  Visitors will now be able to see local attractions while being ‘driven’ by a llama.  Tours will begin in Chivay as well as the Sibayo district.

Fred Barrios, the manager of Autocolca, said to Peru This Week, “On board Llama Taxi, tourists can get to know areas near Chivay, such as the La Calera hot springs, the colonial bridge, and other natural tourist areas.”  The service will create jobs for local residents and so far 6 llamas will be available for use touring the Colca valley.

According to La República, plans are in the works for expansion of the service to other regions within Perú.
