10 Full Days in Peru

Jump to last reply

I am asking for assistance with planning 10 full days in Peru for 4 adults. I have planned to arrive on Thanksgiving morning around 9 am into Cuzco. The rough shell currently is to sight see there and maybe go to the Sacred Valley that Thursday or Friday. Saturday morning (day 3) we would start the 4 day trek to Machu Picchu on the Inca Trail, returning the evening on Tuesday (day 6). Wednesday (day 7) I am hoping to catch an early tour bus like Inca Express to Puno and tour the Lake Titicaca Islands. It seems I would need a minimum of 3 days for this? That would have me returning to Cuzco the evening of Friday (day 9). Saturday (day 10) I would catch an early flight to Lima and see as much there as possible before departing the next day (day 11) for the United States.

I am completely open to suggestions on getting from place to place or places not to miss. I feel like I will only have time for highlights of this wonderful place. I have read threads where some say Colca Canyon is a can't miss for example over seeing Lima. I am an active hiker and backpacker so tend to appreciate a fast pace of the beaten path where possible rather than slower paced group tours and such.

Thanks, Jeff.
