How It Works

How it Works 2

The company is owned by 2 Irishmen, proud of offering the first Hop on Hop off bus service in Peru. Our service covers the whole South of Peru, including Cusco, Arequipa, Puno and more. It’s one of the easiest and safest ways to travel through Peru!

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.

2. Plan your itinerary
View our recommended plan for the whole trip or make your own. Book a room or bed in one of our many accommodation partners listed in our discounts tab. Even book the recommended extra activities for each destination in advance by checking them in our tours tab. And for the spontaneous, make no plans and just hop on!

3. Start your trip
Get picked up from your accommodation and start your trip. Since we are a hop on/hop off service you will get picked up and dropped off in each destination. You will also count with an on-board guide throughout your whole trip for assistance and tips for your journey with Peru Hop.
Note: no pickups in Cusco due to legal restrictions for 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)

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

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, or the loneliness of travelling with strangers
  • You may have concerns of safety or emergency situations
  • You don’t want to be constrained to a fixed schedule which you can’t change whether you like it or not

That’s why we created this company! We offer a safe, comfortable and stress free trip!
We assure you you’ll never want to hop off, with our bilingual on-board guides always assisting you throughout the trip. Apart from all the people you will meet, it’ll feel like you have travelled with all your friends.

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 travellers enough space and freedom to explore at their own pace.

Lastly, you decide where to stay and how long it will be. Feel free to stay 1 night or 1 month, our passes are valid for one whole year!

As we like to say:

“Travel independently but never be alone.”
