Advice on Peru trip: Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Cusco, Puno

Jump to last reply

Booked a trip to Peru for 2 in August and wanted to get some advice:

Here is the itinerary

Day 1: Friday: Arrive to Lima at 2:10 pm
Day 2: Saturday: Fly to Cusco: depart 5:25 am and arrive 6:25 am. Taxi to SV
Day 3: Sunday: All day Sacred Valley
Day 4: Monday: Leave SV to Aquas Caliente at 1:27 PM on Vistadome
Day 5: Tuesday: All day at Machu Picchu
Day 6: Wed: Machu Picchu in the morning and Expedition train to Cusco 4:43 PM
Day 7: Thurs: All day in Cusco
Day 8: Friday: Leave Cusco by plane to Puno depart 2:40 pm and arrive 3:30 pm
Day 9: Saturday: All day in Puno
Day 10: Sunday: Leave Puno by plane to Lima depart at 4:00 pm and arrive 6:45 pm
Day 11: Flying out of Lima at 2:55 pm

Questions:

1) After arriving to Lima on day 1, any suggestions on something to see or do for the remainder of the afternoon and early evening in Lima?

2) Will be taking a taxi from Cusco airport to SV on Day 2 and was wondering if there are any stops or sights to see along the way to Urubamba?

3) Any suggestions for tour operators or tour guides based in Sacred Valley? We want to be able to see Ollantaytambo, Pisac Market, Pisac Ruins, and Chinchero during our time in SV and would like to do some of it on our own but would rather use a guide / driver for incrased efficiency - especially on day of departure.

4) Any suggestions for must do things to see and do for our 1.5 days in Cusco?
