February 4, 2017

Who are Peru Hop (in 100 Words!)

Peru Hop is a stress-free way of traveling through Peru which allows passenger to explore at their own pace and see the hidden gems that most tourists completely miss. Their bus ride experience includes, but is not limited to, bilingual guides (English/Spanish) with some basic knowledge of some other languages, exclusive discount prices in accommodations and tours, comfortable buses, etc. The one of a kind experience offered by Peru Hop goes hand to hand with the company’s mission to provide a safe, flexible and fun experience to all its passengers.

Travel independently, but never alone

The dose of fun to your trip with Peru Hop gets injected in many ways. For instance, the engaging, knowledgeable, friendly and funny guides you get on board are sure to become your new Peruvian amigos! As you travel through all the major destinations in Southern Peru (i.e. Paracas, Huacachina, Arequipa, Puno and Cusco) as well as the smaller places that do not appear on Lonely planet reviews and only Peruvians know about, your guides will share their stories, answer your questions, plan activities for you to mingle with other passengers and assist you with anything you might need during your trip. Thus, you will be making friends on board, see the real Peru, and have a fun journey all the way! There is no such thing as a stranger on the bus. As Peru Hop likes to say: Travel independently, but never alone!

Exclusive hotel & local tour operator pricing

On top of that, you get exclusive discounted prices with their accommodation and tour operator partners. Forget about sitting down and doing the math to see if you are getting the best deals or working out the logistics of your trip. All you have to do is sit back and relax on their semi-bed seats, advanced temperature air controlled and brake suspension systems buses.

Hop on, hop off

The flexible nature of their service can be seen in the hop on hop off system which is the first service of its kind in Peru. Operating through the whole south of Peru, Peru Hop’s passes give you the ability to hop on a bus and hop off wherever you want, thus putting you in control as to where you stay and what to do. With 1 ticket valid for 1 year you can hop off anywhere you like to stay longer, and simply hop back on the next bus. Plus, they have created a unique Hop Login system where you can login in and change your own bus schedules and pickup locations without needing to email or call them. This is certainly faster, more convenient, and puts you in control!

Moreover, unlike in other countries where the hop on hop off concept is mainly associated with young backpackers, Peru Hop is unique in that they have an amazing mix of people of all ages from around the world. Peru Hop suits everyone’s needs by recommending party hostels, quiet hotels and family accommodating options for their passengers. Plus, in case you are unsure about where to book your accommodation before beginning your trip. No problem! Your guide on board the bus can call ahead and book you into one their partner hotels and hostels at a discounted price. In addition to it, for the people who decide to see more of Peru and enjoy things beyond the free tours along the way, the guides on board can also book extra tours in the same way they can book accommodation for you. Although Peru Hop does not operate any of the extra tours along the way, they work with the best tour operators at each destination guided by over 3 years of passenger feedback.

Safety assured

Concerned about safety?  Well, Peru Hop understands your concerns and that is why safety is a top priority on their list.  Being a European owned and Peruvian operated company, Peru Hop offers its passengers a Peruvian adventure with European levels of safety and service. It all starts by picking you up from the comfort of your hostel or hotel at each destination meaning that you can avoid unsafe local taxis and bus terminals. As your trip goes on, their 24hr GPS monitored buses with 2 drivers constantly swapping shifts to avoid tiredness ensures that you have a safe ride. Moreover, it is worth mentioning that unlike public buses full of a local travelers going from A to B where the bus company has told its drivers that all the journey must take 4 hours because otherwise there would be complaints as people may miss meetings, had to cancel plans, or missed a connecting bus, Peru Hop’s drivers do not have such pressures. The drivers will not be rewarded for meeting tight time deadlines, but instead will be rewarded based on safe driving and reviews from our passengers.  Likewise, unlike some companies in Peru, Peru hop does not allow their buses to have unscheduled stops throughout the route.  Arriving to your destination, the on board guides will make sure you get dropped off at the door of your hotel or hostel.
