Sheila from North Dakota asked

Starting to plan our trip to Peru/Macchu Picchu in November 2015

We are planning on hiking the Inca Trail (the 4 day hike) - any good tips on companies to book through?

We are also planning on traveling around the country. Is a trip to Lake Titicaca worth it? And does anyone have any favorite places/experiences/restaurants you enjoyed there?

We are typically up for anything, traveling on a moderate budget for a 2 week trip.

Lake Titicaca is definitely worth it. It's an amazingly unique place and so beautiful as long as you're prepared for a little bit of an altitude headache. If I'm remembering correctly, we ate at a place called Mojsa Restaurant, and it was so good. I don't remember it being particularly cheap or exorbitant, but I do remember that the food was fantastic.

Hi Sheila,

If you are planning to visit the south part of Peru, I would recommend to do all the south routes (2 weeks is enough)

Day 1, 2 --> Lima

Day 3 --> Paracas(Ballestas island), Ica(Huacachina lake)

DAy 4 --> Nasca lines, night bus to Arequipa

Day 5 --> Arequipa city tour

Day 6 --> Colca Canyon

Day 7 --> Colca Canyon, bus to Puno

DAy 8 -->Taquile Island  & home stay Amantaní (Titicaca lake)

Day 9 --> bus or plane to Cusco

Day 10 --> city tour

Day 11 --> Machu Picchu 

Day 12 --> Sacred Valley of the Incas (try to do it on Sunday so you can see Pisac traditional market)

Day 13 --> free and afternoon flight to Lima

Day 14 -- return home :)

I have a travel agency so if you need any help or question i can help both.

Take care and enjoy Peru!

I absolutely loved Fortaleza de Kuelap experience and traveling through the Amazon. Titicaca might disappoint you, even though if you're not in a hurry staying a week in a place with open air bathtub high up the hills overlooking the lake is a pretty relaxing thing to do.

We spent 2 nights in Puno and the day on Lake Titicaca - it was an amazing experience. We visited a couple of the floating reed islands built by the Uros women themselves, as well as Taquile island. It could seem a  bit touristy, but tourists are one of the reasons they are still able to maintain the way they live. The lake is huge, and the islands & people are beautiful.
