Tentative Itinerary for Peru with Children

Jump to last reply

I have three boys aged 8, 14, & 15. We are planning a trip to Peru this summer (and Galapagos as well) and would love your feedback on the Peruvian portion. We are well travelled and prefer to travel independently and to have flexibility in our schedule. We will travel in July.

Day 1- fly to Lima & spend night at airport hotel
Day 2-4 fly to Cusco and spend three nights here; Check out Cusco on the first day and then Pisac and other areas close to Cusco. Do you think it is reasonable to find a taxi to take us where we would like to go once we are there?
Day 5-6- Take train to Ollantatambo and surrounding areas-- book a mountain bike and/or horseback riding tour
Day 7-8-- Train to Machu Picchu- We are considering the 2 day hike. Any recommendations for companies to take us on this?
Day 9- train back to Cusco
Day 10- Fly to Guayaquil

I would love your feedback on this and suggestions for hotels, restaurants, activities, etc.. Thanks.
