Fine tuning MP/SV itinerary

Jump to last reply

My husband and I and two other couples leave for Peru in two months. (I was just reviewing a thread I posted a year ago about this trip! I guess I am a super advanced planner.)

Anyway, after reading some recent threads, I'm a little concerned about making our flight back to the US as scheduled since we are flying Cuzco to Lima earlier the same day. Should I look into changing one of our flights, say depart Lima for the US a day later if possible? Or depart Cuzco earlier?

Here's the plan:

Day 1- arrive Lima 11 pm; overnight Ramada airport hotel

Day 2- morning flight Lima to Cuzco
Pisac ruins and Sunday market
Check into Sacred Valley hotel for 3 nights

Day 3- Maras (Salineras), Moray, and Chinchero

Day 4- Ollantaytambo ruins

Day 5- early train Urubamba to Machu Picchu
Guided tour MP
Check into Inkaterra Machu Picchu for 2 nights

Day 6- more MP

Day 7- morning train to Ollantaytambo; driver to Cuzco
Guided tour of Cuzco including Saqsayhuaman, Qenqo, and Qoricancha
Check into Cuzco hotel for 2 nights

Day 8- free day

Day 9- late morning flight arriving Lima 11:45 am
Afternoon tour of historic Lima
11:45 pm flight back to US

PS. We've hired David Choque as our guide.
