Peru Itinerary - Help on Cusco Vs Sacred valley

Jump to last reply

Hello

Myself and wife are taking a trip to Peru in about 10 days and would like some help deciding the itinerary, specifically allocating time between Cusco and Sacred valley.

This is my tentative plan.

Nov 6th - Reach Lima around 11 pm. Overnight in Lima
7 - Morning flight from Lima to Cusco

Take taxi to Sacred valley. Roam around SV. Overnight in SV


8 - Take taxi to Cusco in the morning. Roam cusco. Collect Inca trail tickets at 5 pm. Overnight in Cusco

9 - Roam Cusco. Overnight in Cusco

10 - Begin Inca trail Hike early morning
11- Inca Trail
12- Inca Trail
13- Machu Pichu. Return to Cusco around 11 pm. Stay overnight in Cusco

14 - Early morning Take tourist bus to Puno. Reach Puno at 5 pm. Overnight in Puno

15 - Roam Lake Titicaca
16 - Roam Lake Titicaca
17- Roam Lake Titicaca

Evening flight to Lima. Fly out of Lima to home

Currently, we have one day /one night in Sacred valley and 2 days/2 nights in Cusco. I want to hear opinions on if that is a good idea. Or, would it better to spend 2 days in Sacred valley and 1 day in Cusco?
