Hi Wyn, my name is Evelyn and I am the travel specialist based in Cusco, Peru. I would love to help you organizing your trip. I saw you are interested in doing many activities for what you need at least 2 weeks. The Inca trail trek is 5 days and the trip to the Amazon is 4 to 5 days. To visit Lake Titicaca you need 2 days. I can add the other activities such as rafting, kayaking and mountain biking. Please confirm how many days you have in the region to prepare a proposal itinerary including all the places you want to visit and the activities you want to do. I will be waiting your response. Best regards, Evelyn.

Wyn:

Hi! I reevaluated our time and I'm thinking we will have from around the 27th/28th of October 2017 to around the 11th of November 2017. We are planning on doing a week in the Galapagos before making it to Peru. We really want to do the inca trek, an Amazon stay, Lake Titicaca and explore Lima food scene.. my husband likes adventure so any mountain biking or kayaking at any of these places is good too! If you have any other suggested places to see we are open to everything! We are ok with staying at budget places as long as it is fairly safe, trying to keep the cost down. Thank you so much for your help!


Evelyn:
Hi Wyn, I have prepared a complete itinerary including the places you are interested in visiting. Please take a look and let me know your comments. We can modify it anytime to create the perfect one for you.

Wyn:

This itinerary looks great! It says 17days/6 nights, would we need to reserve our hotels in for the other nights? When we go to hike the inca trail, is there a place we can store our baggage that we won't be taking on the trek? Also, what is a estimate on how much this would cost? And can we start this any day or does it have a certain start day? We will be coming off a week in Galapagos so we are thinking we would be able to be in cusco by the 27th of October. Thank you!

Wyn:
This looks great! My husband is putting in for his time off at his work and when we get the ok from his work we will go ahead and book. Should be by the end of the month. Thank you so much for all your help! I will be in contact with you soon.
