A few hints: if you've got 24 hours in some town or city, you can probably get your laundry done. You'll find diet drinks only in bigger cities. I had a blast with two different bike tours in Lima (Miraflores). Don't miss out on trying the cerviche. You may find that travel within Peru takes longer than you expect. Remember that outside of Lima, public restrooms often have an attendant who will charge you about S1.0-0.50 to enter (have the coins ready), usually (not always) giving you a few sheets of toilet paper. Soap was uncommon, so bring your own soap, hand sanitizer, and extra toilet paper. Finally, apparently counterfeit US currency is a problem there. Make sure the money that you bring is unmarked and not dog-eared... it may not be accepted, even at banks. Try to avoid damaged soles as well.
After reading the section on Machu Picchu which includes the Inca Trail--I'm very tempted to hike it (26 miles, 4 days). The guide includes enough information to make it intriguing as well as the basics of how to do it (need to hire a local guide, get permits etc). Mmmmm. Sounds very interesting! And isn't that what a good guide book is suppose to do--take you places you might otherwise ignore?
This is a in-depth guide that is a must-have for those planning on visiting Peru and seeing Machu Picchu, Nazca Lines, Inca Trail, etc. It's a great guide to have before when planning and taking with you while there! Fodor's is my go-to guide for all things when traveling to new places!
Interestingly, the book lists a big selection of recommended tour operators in USA, Europe and Peru, who are specialized in Machu Picchu. Those tours are $$ expensive $$! I wonder whether you really need a travel book if you are thinking to take pre-arranged tours. If you don’t want to pay top dollars taking a tour, this book has wealth information to prepare the trip. Note the high altitude warning before traveling to Peru.
What are you waiting? Get the book and start preparing once-in-a-lifetime trip.
