How It Works

How it Works 2

Peru Hop was setup by 2 Irishmen living in Peru with the sole purpose of helping people discover the REAL Peru in a safe and stress free way. We missed a lot of places when we traveled to Peru but now, having lived here, we want to assure more people get to see Peru through the eyes of a Peruvian.

Below we have 5 simple steps to understand exactly how our service works.

How it works in 5 simple steps

1. Choose a pass
Choose from our variety of passes, depending on where you want to start, where do you want to go and how much time you have. Check our passes section for more information.

2. Plan your itinerary
View our recommended plan for the whole trip using our “Plan your itinerary” tool within each pass or simply make your own plan. Or, for the spontaneous, make no plans and just hop on and go with the flow. Our passes are perfect for everyone, whether you want to squeeze it all into a few days or stay anywhere for a longer period of time.

3. Start your trip
Get picked up from your hotel or hostel and start your trip, or if staying in an Airbnb simply email us and we will make a plan! At every destination we will pick you up and drop you off wherever you are staying.
Note: We cannot offer our pickup service in Cusco. This is due to strict legal restrictions regarding large buses entering the historical centre.

4. Hop on and hop off
You decide how long to stay at each stop. Maybe stay one night or one month, it’s up to you! Your pass will be valid for one whole year, so you don’t have to worry about those dreaded fixed schedules other companies offer. Simply log into your HOP LOGIN account and change your itinerary on-the-go.

5. Finish your trip
Finish your trip and pick up a free t-shirt in our offices in either Lima or Cusco (Subject to availability).

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.

We understand your needs!

  • It’s not always easy traveling in bus through Peru due to the lack of the English-speaking staff, long delays, and poor customer service
  • What do you do in an emergency? What if your taxi takes you to the wrong place?
  • What if you book a fixed itinerary but then want to stay somewhere longer?

That’s why we created Peru Hop!

We offer a safe, comfortable and stress free trip!

See the hidden gems of Peru. Meet our local Peruvian guides (now famous on tripadvisor haha!) as well as fellow passengers from across the world. Pay local prices with local Peruvian companies paying Peruvian taxes.

Lose an ATM card or your passport? Need to call home for an emergency? Peru Hop is always there to help, and our on-board assistants are famous for their care and attention, whilst also leaving travelers enough space and freedom to explore at their own pace.

As we like to say:

“Travel independently but never be alone.”

Did you know?
You can book your ticket easily and safely on our website. We do recommend booking in advance as our service is very popular and sometimes sells out in advance.
