10 reasons to use Peru Hop for your travels across Southern Peru
1. JAW-DROPPING UNIQUE STOPS AND ACTIVITIES ALONG THE WAY
Don’t miss seeing all the beautiful wonders of Peru by simply flying straight from Lima to Cusco! Taking Peru Hop gives you the opportunity to visit the only desert oasis in ALL of South America, see Colca Canyon (deeper than the grand canyon) and visit the FLOATING islands of UROS on the highest Lake in the world, Lake Titicaca! What are you waiting for!? Check out some of our extra tours!
2. 90% CHEAPER THAN OTHER TOUR COMPANIES!
Try googling “10 day tour of Peru”, and you will find that the only other tours available have fixed itineraries (with no flexible option) and cost roughly $1,500 – $4,500 USD. Also, these tours generally don’t even include everything (read the small print!).
If budget backpacking was your plan, we still work-out much cheaper! Try adding the price of transport, the free extra activities in each hidden Peruvian destination, and the full cost of other activities and accommodation (find online or check out our exclusive accommodation discounts), you’ll see the maths for yourself! Check out more price details on our how it works page.
3. AWESOME LOCAL GUIDES!

4. WE TAKE YOU TO HIDDEN LOCAL STOPS OFF THE BEATEN TRACK!
Not only do our guides give you the load down on everything Peru, but our goal is to completely immerse you in this magnificently fascinating culture. Try some actual local food at one of our lunch stops along the way. Enjoy the flavour of the national Peruvian drink ‘Pisco’ at our exclusive vineyard tour (miles from the boring route of a direct bus).

7. EUROPEAN OWNED & PERUVIAN OPERATED
Peru Hop was set up by European backpackers and is Peruvian operated. It’s the perfect combination of passionate people sharing their country paired with European levels of safety & service. Our bilingual guides also make the journey much easier for anyone struggling with Spanish and have fun sharing their language with anyone eager to pick up a few Spanish words while here in Peru!
8. HOTEL/ HOSTEL PICK-UPS & DROP OFFS
Avoid getting up ridiculously early, paying for a taxi to bring you to the risky bus station and trying to catch your next bus on time. Then paying for a taxi to your hostel and doing it all again in a few days. We pick you up and drop you off right at the door. Did you know: There is no other bus that goes directly to Huacachina, all other buses only go as far as the closest town, Ica. This would mean paying for a taxi to a bus station in a whole other town. Peru Hop picks you up and drops you off at EVERY stop*!
