2 week Peru trip itinerary - Appreciate feedback

Jump to last reply

This will be our first trip to South America / Peru. We are a family of 4 including 2 teenagers and are looking for an active trip giving us exposure to different cultures, customs and traditions. Plan is to do this trip the last 2 weeks of December. Appreciate your feedback on the tentative itinerary shown below. Thank you.

Couple of questions:

i) Is Tues 19th too rushed?
ii) Better to do Huayana Picchu at 7am or 10am?
iii) We plan to take it easy in Cusco and go slow. Any "Do NOT MISS" lists for Cusco?
iv) Want to visit Titicaca but ambivalent about Amantani homestay. Any inputs?
v) If we don't do Amantani homestay, we can add a day in Arequipa instead. Pros /Cons?
