Need help with travel plan to Peru, Bolivia and Chile - depart 30 Jan

Jump to last reply

Hello, I was hoping to get some advice from the experts in South America, in regards to my upcoming trip to Peru, Bolivia and Chile. It's a last minute decision to travel from Asia to South America, and so I don't have a good idea yet in regards to itinerary. Also, as I will be single female traveler, I wonder if there's other travelers that will be in the region around same dates, to plan together?
I tried contacting agencies but turned out to be hugely expensive as they were proposing partly private tours...so looks like it will be free and easy, but there are a lot of excursions, esp Peru and Bolivia which I am hoping to get an agency to help, esp with the transfers (too short time unfortunately to do it entirely on my own with public transport). Any advice on itinerary, recommendation of agencies?

Tentative itinerary:
January 30: Arrival in Lima, Land Lima evening time from Singapore
January 31: Lima
February 1: Lima-Cusco - Flight Lima to Cusco
February 2: Cusco-Sacred Valley-Ollantaytambo
February 3: Ollantaytambo-Machu Picchu
February 4: Machu Picchu-Cusco
February 5: Cusco-Puno
February 6: Puno-Lake Titicaca
February 7: Puno-La Paz
February 8: La Paz
February 9: La Paz-Uyuni
February 10: Salar de Uyuni-Isla Inkawasi
February 11: Isla Inkawasi-Awakisa-San Pedro De Quemes
February 12: Laguna Colorada-Laguna Verde- San Cristobal- Uyuni
February 13: San Pedro de Atacama-Calama
Flight Calama to Santiago
February 14: Santiago
February 15: Santiago-Viña del Mar and Valparaíso
February 16: Santiago
February 17: Santiago
February 18: Departure day, Flight Santiago to Lima + Flight Lima back to Singapore (evening departure)
I wonder if I have put down too many days in Santiago. Any advice for Chile?
So far, I have only the first 2 nights hotel in Lima booked, as well as flight from Lima to Cusco.
Appreciate any recommendation!
Thank you in advance.
