You could see here some points of reference to help you in your choice, according to the areas:

Lima :
According to the time the passenger have, possibility to visit or not.
Advantage: the most beautiful museums of the country.
Disadvantage: Modern and huge city.

The South coast:
Allow to visit the Ballestas Islands and Nazca.
Advantage: visit of the desert, advantageous rate with the road route.  
Disadvantage: Long bus trip (10h from Nazca to Arequipa)

Arequipa :
Inescapable on a trip of more than 10 days.

Colca Canyon:
Allow to observe the flight of condors.
Advantage: The thermal water in Chivay, very appreciated from the travelers and the flight of condors, from very near.
Disadvantage: Trips of 2 days, including much road travel.  

Possibility, with a higher budget to join during the second day directly Puno and then Chivay in a private car.

Titicaca Lake:
Inescapable for a trip of more than 8 days. The choice can be tour 1 or tour 2.
1 day: For travelers of less than 15 days, see the essential.
2 days: For travelers who desire to be close the life of the inhabitants of the lake. Comfort simple in houses (toilettes outside, no heating).

To be noted that we propose an option, less known, in the private island of Suasi (2 days minimum) for a very comfortable stay, maintaining t nigh on the lake.

Altiplano visit:
Generally in touristic bus with stops along the tour (Pucara Museum, Peak of la Raya, stop lunch in Sicuani, Raqchi and Andahuaylillas). This visit is made with a shared guide, speaking English and Spanish. For a better trip, we recommend you the train option Andean Explorer (see “options”).

Cusco :
Inescapable city during a trip in Peru. 1 day to visit the entire city is necessary.

Sacred Valley:
Inescapable Incas sites. 1 day visiting for the shortest trips, 2 days to visit more sites.

Machu Picchu:
The best of your trip… 1 day is enough because the citadel can be visited in 2 to 2 hours and half. The rest of the time is free to take a walk around the site (Inti Punku, mount Machu Picchu, Huayna Picchu…). Since 2011, the climbing of Huayna Picchu Mountain is reserved to the 400 first registered. You have to precise this at the moment of your inscription and it is summited to supplement. Most of our tours leave early in the morning from the Sacred Valley or Cusco and come back at night in Cusco. This choice is motivated by the high price of the hotels in Aguas Calientes and by a small ratio quality/price unlike the other regions of Peru.

Amazonia in Puerto-Maldonado:
Recommended at the end of your stay.
Possible trips of 3 to 5 days, we advise you a trip of 4 days. This relaxing stay allow a rest period to travelers ending their trip.
