When travelling, you always have to find the best reasons to help you decide which option to take. This can be difficult as it’s a once in a lifetime trip to a different country, and for many of you, a different continent. We’ve been through those struggles ourselves and because of that, we’ve listed the 10 reasons, based on research and feedback from our passengers, as to why hop with us!
11 REASONS TO USE PERU HOP
FOR YOUR TRAVELS ACROSS SOUTHERN PERU
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!
Not only do our guides give you the low-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).
Our guides are fun and enthusiastic people who love sharing about their country and are ready to help you with whatever you need. Advice, assistance and excellent inside information about EVERY destination. Get to know more about our guides by reading more here.
A look online will show you that many companies in the travel industry treated their customers terribly during the pandemic. Agencies disappeared, tour companies ignored emails, and many companies also left their staff stranded.
We are very proud of how we handled this unprecedented situation, and we are sure that if you look online, or speak to anyone who was traveling with us at that time, they will tell you how much we helped them.
Things can sometimes go wrong when traveling, and so thats why its always important to ensure you go with a company who will be there to assist you if needed, and we are extremely proud of our team and their incredible customer service levels which were portrayed during and after the pandemic.
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.

Peru Hop was set up by European travelers and is Peruvian operated. It's the perfect combination of passionate people sharing their country paired with European levels of safety & service.

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*!
Want to hear it from someone else? Try googling ‘Peru Hop review’ to see what some bloggers who’ve travelled with us have said! Here are some of our favourite quotes so far from bloggers who are part of the Hopster family. Go check out their sites for the full detailed stories of their experience!
“I was constantly shocked by how much money I spent on long distance buses in South America, they’re more expensive than flights in Europe and Asia, so PeruHop works out to be great value.” – Johnny Ward from One Step 4ward
“I won’t lie, for some reason it didn’t occur to me that an overnight bus could actually be fun, but since I immediately met travelers and backpackers from all over the world, it turned out to be a really good time!” – Alyssa from My Life’s a Movie
“The buses were as spacious as the Trip Advisor reviews told me they’d be and then some!” – Gloria from The Blog Abroad
We understand that passengers like to travel at their own pace so we have created flexible passes that allows just that! Each pass is valid for 1 year meaning you can spend as little or as long as you want at each stop. There is no one itinerary that suits every traveler, so we didn’t try to make one. Whether you fall in love with the peace of Paracas or the excitement of Huacachina, Peru Hop has you covered. Simply hop off where you please, take your time exploring and hop back on the next bus the following day. No restricting itineraries, no worries!
Having successfully transported over 150,000 customers across Peru since 2013, we are proud to call ourselves the travelers choice! As you can see from above there are so many perks to travelling with Peru Hop, from unique stops and free activities to safe buses and welcoming guides. Check out what some of our customers have said on TripAdvisor, Facebook and Google and be sure to follow our Social Media pages for up to date travel tips and info!
If travelling 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 travellers.
