Peru Hop is all about discovering the REAL Peru through the eyes of a local. Our drivers know the hidden gems, the stops between the stops that tourists would never find, and are also happy to share stories of what life was and is like in Peru along the way. An authentic local experience in a safe, flexible and fun way! Read more below about what Peru Hop is and how it works!

Peru Hop offers 2 distinct travel options:

1. Our Classic Hop On Hop Off Travel across Peru and/or Bolivia (this is explained in much further detail below)

2. One Day City Tours/Trips - Ideal for those who plan to fly within Peru and have a day or 2 extra in Lima or Cusco for example. Click HERE to view our Day Trips

There are a few ways to travel within Peru:

  1. Planes (You will miss a LOT of stops not served by Airports, such as Huacachina, Paracas, Puno/Lake Titicaca and more). Note that if you are very short on time, a combination of planes and day trips by bus could work well.
  2. Local Public Buses (no central bus terminal, many companies with poor safety records, lack of English speaking staff, no stops between the stops to see the hidden gems)
  3. Guided Tour Company (usually VERY expensive, no flexibility to choose what you want to do and when you want to do it, can’t stay anywhere longer. Fixed, rigid, and expensive)
  4. Peru Hop Bus (#1 Rated company on Tripadvisor. Hop-on Hop-off, hotel pickup/drop off, stop between the stops and much more! An authentic local experience at local prices!)

Why Peru Hop is 90% cheaper than tour companies?

This is a question we often get asked via email so we thought we would help explain it here…

If you google “10 day tour of Peru”, you will see tours (not flexible…but with fixed itineraries) costing $1,500 – $4,500 USD. These tours often don’t even include everything… read the small print!!

Peru Hop’s most popular ticket is $179 USD for a pass that is valid for one whole year.

If you add to our price the extra activities in each destination, and the accommodation (check online or check our exclusive accommodation discounts), you will see that the overall price will still come out MUCH MUCH cheaper.

How Is This Possible You May Ask?

Well Peru Hop, unlike most tour companies, is LOCALLY based. We have a local Peruvian team and pay local taxes. For extra activities, we work with local tour operators and we get the best possible prices from them, and pass these directly to our customers. Other companies make 200% and 300% profit… they tell you a 2 day Colca Canyon Tour costs $90 USD when it really costs around $27 USD.

In terms of accommodation, hotels and hostels work with travel agencies on a confidential rate basis. They tell an agency “We don’t care what price you charge the customer, you need to pay us $30 USD”. ALL agencies then mark up these prices, and charge you, the customer, $80-$100 USD… easy money for them!

What we do differently is we pass on the confidential price DIRECTLY to our customer. Check our exclusive prices on accommodation… we 100% guarantee these rates CANNOT be beaten on any website ( or anyone else) or with any travel agency.

Why Do We Do This?

Well it’s quite simple. We make our money through volumes of people on our buses. The more people that come to Peru the better for this whole country, including Peru Hop. So if we can make Peru more affordable for travellers, they will then recommend this country to more people, who will bring more visitors etc etc. As a local company, we want this country to grow and tourism is a massive driver of growth for this country where over 35% of people live below the poverty line.

Travel agencies and tour companies that charge $2,000 USD+ are NOT local companies. They do not employee local people. They don’t really care if the economy grows here or not. They are simply interested in making as much money as possible. They prey on tourists lack of knowledge about Peru, and tell tourists that it is such a dangerous country, and that $2,000 USD is actually quite cheap for a tour as it is less than 1 months wages in most western countries. Tourists fall for it and end up paying way too much for a fixed tour, with no flexibility, which does not even take them to REAL local destinations.

Peru Hop is a proud Peruvian company and our whole team is proud of the fact that we are different from these huge travel agencies and tour companies that rip tourists off. Keeping our prices as low as possible is something we always aim to achieve so more and more people can come visit this amazing country.

We hope this helps explain why we are a lot cheaper than normal travel companies but our quality is MUCH better (according to TripAdvisor reviews online) and we hope to see you on board a Peru Hop trip in the very near future!

We understand your needs!

  • It’s not always easy traveling through Peru due to the lack of English-speaking people, poor customer service or people trying to rip you off.
  • What do you do in an emergency if you lose your credit card or passport or have a health issue?
  • What if you book a tour but your plans change and you want to stay somewhere longer?
