river trip itinerary

I am arriving in peru in early august and have about a week before I do macho picho hike...does it sound reasonable to head to a river cruise for 3 or 4 days and then a quick flight to cusco to acclimatize for the hike?

I assume companies for cruises can be found easily enough and starting that soon.

You would be fine scheduling a couple days in the jungle, I would also try to spend at least a full day to tour Iquitos. I would recommend that you contact Bill Grimes with Dawn on the Amazon to set up a couple day cruise, he is very reasonable and knowledgeable. He also runs a restaurant in Iquitos that has some of the best food you will find in the city. http://www.dawnontheamazon.com/
