Hey everyone

Me and a few friends are heading out to Peru and Bolivia in the middle of June. We have approx 4 and a half weeks to spend and we are looking to make the most out our trip while remaining on budget. We booked the Inca trail, the salt flats, and are doing some kind of jungle trek! We're really excited and wanted to know if there were any other must sees in Peru and Bolivia if we have the time/money? Or if there any activities that are free that we should look into?

We are also doing our fair share of overnight buses, any advice on this would be amazing

Do have a look around Lima. Some excellent museums there as well as other things:

Cusco has a number of travel agents which do good day trips and shorter trips. Cusco itself is worth a walk around. There is of course the Nazca Lines on the way to Bolivia.

Hey i have not been to bolivia but its on my to do list after australia, so far your trip sounds amazing and if its the Uyuni saltflat then im majorly jelous! When i go im hoping to see the red lagoon and the green lagoon, bet they are worth seeing if its not already on your to do list.

i hope you have an amzing trip and if its ok i would love to hear back of your experinces and any recomendations and advice for when i finally get my chance to go. Have a great time.

Your itinerary looks great ! The salt flats of Uyuni tour is incredible !! I'm currently in Lima - if you're stuck here for a few days and find yourself at a loose end, and depending whether your interested, you might want to think about seeing some dolphins ..... message me if you want more info or I can send you a link - don't want to advertise on here !!
Enjoy !
