    How was your trip? Do you have some pictures and/or stories to share?
    We are traveling to Lima in four weeks and would really appreciate some tips/advices.
    We are a family of four with the two children 9 and 11 yo and thinking if that is a good idea to go on an Inca Trail with the kids. Is it too intense with the children?

    Make sure you don’t forget some warm slippers on your trip, night can get really cold in the valleys

    We have a small group planning on traveling to Peru. Looking at the packages it doesn’t appear that we can do everything that we want. We want to spend about a week in Lima and a week in Cusco. There will be between 2 and 6 of us. I speak very little spanish but will buy one of those pocket translators that does not need wifi. I am trying to keep the cost low to enable more people to go. We wish to:

    Spend a day in Lima at the plaza and nearby attractions
    Hike to laguna 69. I know a bus goes there and its about 8 hours
    another day in Lima to visit the art museum of gold, art museum and park of love
    maybe another day in Lima
    Spend a day in Cusco at the plaza and nearby attractions
    take the 2-3 day hike to machu picchu by the hydro electric dam
    check out the saqsaywaman
    Go to the rainbow mountains
    maybe another day in Cusco

    I plan on going in April or May
    Does anyone have any recommendations?
    Can I find local guides?
    Someone told me making hotel reservations cost twice as much. Are reservations necessary?
    Does anyone know the 2-3 route to hike to Machu Picchu?
    I believe I can get a guide at Machu Picchu. Or should I get one for the 2-3 day hike?

    Is this too ambitious? Should we forget about our ideal trip and settler for a package?
    I don’t mind doing the work to plan it.
