Has anyone done this trek and can give me some advice please.

Thanks.

There's atm's everywhere in Lima and Cusco.

Just take 200USD to start off with which you can exchange at the airport for soles and then when you run out get some more from the ATM.

I did 3 weeks Lima to La Paz and managed easily doing that.
