Guide to Peru

Peru is a magical country full of history, culture, and magnificent scenery. Peruvian cuisine is simply mouth-watering and Peruvian people are amongst the friendliest you will ever encounter. From incredible mountainous region Andes to the beautiful coastline and fascinating Amazon jungle … Peru simply has it all!

At Peru Hop we have designed a detailed guide to Peru that comes from our own experience of living in this beautiful country. We have first come to Peru in 2009 as backpackers and have fallen in love with the place so much that we have decided to stay and share our love with other travellers.

With our Peru Hop guide, you can explore Peruvian capital Lima, an exciting city that is also the culinary capital of Latin America, and find out where to try the best ceviche (Did you try Ceviche?). Find out about famous Machu Picchu, as well as less known, yet equally beautiful and popular Ballestas islands in Paracas, or the incredible desert oasis Huacachina.

Quick Tip: If traveling to or from Lima Airport, it is strongly recommended to use the luxury Airport Express Lima bus to get to or from your hotel. Safer and cheaper than a taxi with no baggage limit as well as free Wi-Fi and USB chargers onboard, it is ideal for travelers.

Our Peru Hop guide has been created with a help of our Peruvian tour guides who work on our Peru Hop buses and know Peru from their own local perspective. Follow our city guides with essential tips and advice, and you can be sure that you will have an unforgettable journey across Peru.

To assist you in the planning of your trip and to give you a taste of what you can expect, we have designed a city by city guide for every place where Peru Hop operates:


In addition, each guide includes specific tips and advice as well as a list of must do activities. While we have tried to do our best to describe these amazing places in Peru, our words simply cannot make them justice. You will discover this for yourself, maybe when you hop on one of our Peru Hop buses!
