Sorry - can’t really remember, but do recall visiting ATMs (widely available) quite a lot! Coffee/lunch stops were very cheap, but dinners varied from cheap to moderately expensive - most of the time our group ate with our guide at places he recommended (though some of us did have burgers two of the nights in Cusco!). The optional excursions aren’t cheap, but I did almost all of them and am so glad I did! I even did the sand buggy ride at Ica which I hadn’t planned to do in advance. The flight over the Nasca Lines was amazing (unless you get air sick, which several of our group did) - the planes do quite a lot of banking so that all four passengers get good views! If you like cooking, and are offered it as an option, I can highly recommend the food, drinks and cookery session in Cusco - only two of us did it (plus an American honeymoon couple) and it was enormous fun.  I went out with everyone for dinner, but was so full I didn’t need to eat. Sorry I haven’t been more helpful, but I suggest you don’t agonise over spending - just enjoy all the different experiences!

 

should have said that souvenirs are cheap - unless you want to splash out on baby alpaca wool products! - and always haggle.

We are very excited for this trip!  We are arriving in Lima the morning of November 1st. 

Lucky you getting an extra day in Lima ! we arrive at about 7pm on the 2nd Nov where are you traveling from? We are flying from Edinburgh via Amsredam. So looking forward to it, hard to believe its so close now. Look forward to meeting you in Lima :) happy to send you email address if you would like to speak more before we leave   Cheryl
