Lake Titicaca Tour: See how locals build and live on the Uros Floating Islands of Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world.
We recommend spending 1 night in Puno so that you can enjoy both the city and the magnificent Lake Titicaca. You can take a day tour of the islands on the lake, including the famous Floating Islands of Uros, or you can even experience a homestay with a native family if you have a little more time to add to your schedule. This can be booked onboard with Peru Hop. Just ask our guides for any tips and advice!
As always, if you love Puno, you can hop off and stay as long as you want!. You can decide this up to 12 hours before the next bus!
Book your own hotel/hostel or see below for our recommended partners who offer special deals to Peru Hop passengers. Accommodation CAN be reserved with your Peru Hop onboard guide but we recommend this mainly for dorm rooms as a lot of private rooms sell out in advance.
Pick up at your hotel or hostel in central Puno.

10:00am Day Bus:
For those who wish to travel during the daytime and see the incredible scenery en route from Puno to Cusco
9:30pm Overnight Bus:
For those who would like to sleep on the bus and avoid paying for accommodation that night
Machu Picchu: Do a trek (Classic Inca Trail or Salkantay), a combined trek/biking tour (Inka Jungle Trek) or take the train roundtrip from Cusco (can be done as a full day but 2 days staying the night before in Aguas Calientes is advised).
Rainbow Mountain: Discover this mind-blowing natural wonder, famous for its many colors creating a “rainbow” effect. Only recently discovered, it’s become one of Peru’s must-see attractions. If you want to learn more, click here!
We recommend spending at least 3-4 nights in Cusco, (not including a trek to Machu Picchu) so that you can experience as much of the Inca capital as possible. From the jaw-dropping Rainbow Mountain to the impressive fortress of Sacsayhuamán overlooking the city, there are endless amazing activities and things to see in Cusco. Ask our guides for more information if you’re not sure about what to do!
As always, if you love Cusco, you can hop off and stay as long as you want! You can decide this up to 12 hours before the next bus!
Unfortunately, we do not offer special discounts for hotels/hostels in Cusco. Just book independently from one of the many options to choose from for all types of travelers. Feel free to ask us for advice on where to stay if you’re unsure!
Note: For legal reasons, buses are not allowed to enter the historical center of Cusco which is where most hostels and hotels are located in the city. For this reason, we cannot provide our normal pick-up and drop-off service here. However, after you arrive at our bus terminal located on the outskirts of the city, we will pay for private transport to take you to your hotel/hostel provided it is located close to the center.
We have developed a recommended itinerary based on our expertise, with the amount of time to spend in each destination and what to do. This is just a recommendation, you are free to stay however long you want in each place as we have buses running every day.
Enter a departure date and you can see our recommended itinerary starting on that day. If you don't have an exact date, just enter any and a recommended itinerary will appear.
Copacabana to Puno to Cusco is the perfect pass for those starting in Copacabana, and wanting to visit the highest navigable lake in the world, Lake Titicaca at more than 3,600 meters above sea level.
