Peru Itinerary and Advice

Jump to last reply

Hello! My mom and I are in the midst of planning a trip to Peru from May 18 - June 4. I have a tentative itinerary planned out, but would love some advice.

- Lima: May 18-19
- Arequipa: May 19-21
- Colca Canyon: May 21-23
- Puno: May 23-25
- Cuzco: May 25-29
- Ollantaytambo: May 29-June1
- Lima: June 1-4

My questions are as follows:
1) I feel like I have too many days in Lima at the end - should I allocate one more day to a specific place?
2) Taking the InkaExpress bus appears to be really popular - should we take it from Arequipa - Puno and also from Puno - Cuzco?
3) Is it possible/advisable to do Colca Canyon ourselves? Or would it be beneficial to find a tour for those 2-3 days?

Thanks in advance!! :)
