LAN Peru is the most reliable of the airlines that fly between Lima and Cusco with many time options, but Avianca and Peruvian Airlines are good companies as well. You will not be back from your tour until around 8:pm on day 2, so make sure your flight is not until the next day when leaving Cusco.
This is not required but always a good idea for those of you used to living at sea-level and landing in Cusco will be a little different so most people need 1 or 2 days to adjust but in case you can’t get used to the altitude, having some protection for missed tours, which will all be due in full is a very good idea.
