Peru Hop has become THE way to travel in Peru and is all about discovering the REAL Peru through the eyes of a local Peruvian…
Created in 2013 by Irish, English, and Peruvian travelers (read more here), we have focused on ensuring that people have a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Peru, and can discover places and things only the locals here know!
We have developed a unique hop on hop off bus system that covers the whole route from Lima to Cusco (Machu Picchu) and vice versa, allowing people to travel at their own pace and allowing people to choose what to do and where to eat and sleep.
As well as this, we have created spectacular Day Trips ideal for those very short on time who might want to fly within Peru but don’t want to miss out on amazing places like Huacachina Desert Oasis.
We pick you up and drop you off at your hotel/hostels (Airbnbs have close meeting points) and bring you to places almost impossible to get to without having private transport. Meet other travelers from across the globe and listen to our local Peruvian team onboard share stories about what life is and was like in Peru.
Whether you want a one-week trip fully planned in advance, or just hop on a bus and decide as you go, Peru Hop is perfect for every type of traveler.READ MORE ABOUT PERU HOP

There is a myth that Peru Hop is a “touristy” way to travel and that doing it by yourself on local public buses is more “authentic”. But on public buses, you miss out on incredible hidden gems and you do NOT learn about the culture, the people and the history of places you pass by…doesn’t sound so authentic to us!
Peru Hop offers a MUCH more complete experience of Peru. Yes, we give you the huge safety benefits that comes with traveling with a company owned by Irish guys living in Peru. Yes it is a very easy and stress free way to travel. And yes you will travel on a bus of fellow travelers from across the world and not on a bus full of Peruvians going to work.
But we also stop at hidden gems along the way allowing you to see the REAL Peru (things we only discovered living in Peru). We also have a local Peruvian on each bus who will more than likely become great friends with you (see past reviews) and will give you insights into life growing up in Peru that you simply won’t get from any guidebook or blogger.
Below is a very brief summary of the differences between Peru Hop and Public Buses:
|Peru Hop||Public Buses|
|Onboard local Peruvian expert|
|Free stops at hidden gems|
|Meet other travelers onboard|
|Wi-Fi on bus||*|
|Avoid bus terminals & taxis|
|Travel at your own pace|
|Rating on Tripadvisor||96%||65%|
*Wi-Fi Note: Other buses falsely advertise wifi, but it NEVER works. You travel through remote locations where even phone signal is hard to get, nevermind wifi! Peru Hop do not falsely advertise something that simply won't work!
Don't believe us? Find the best local bus company, find their Tripadvisor page, and then read the reviews. Then read Peru Hop reviews. We are far from perfect, but we promise you a much better traveling experience seeing more and paying less!
As can be seen via customer reviews and photos on Tripadvisor, travel blogs and Instagram, Peru Hop has an amazing mix of travelers, from young backpackers to older families.
