Where do I start? I’m a solo traveler who booked a ticket to Peru 4 days before the flight and I’ve never been to South America and nor can I speak Spanish which made me anxious. Peru Hop was the first company I contacted via email and they have been super helpful!! From all the communication, the arrangements, Peru hop made it so so easy!! It’s not like the hop on hop off buses in Europe, this is a tour full of experiences and I’m always skeptical for paying to travel around but this is well worth it. More importantly the guides were great in particular Ricardo!! This guy made me feel so welcomed, talked to me like we’ve know each other for ages. He answered all my questions, made enquirer for me, and looked after me. Alex have such good insight to the national reserve. I met wonderful people and had the best time of my life. I’m booking Peru Hop again for Cusco to lake titicaca. I don’t usually write reviews but I had to share how good they were.

The yellow Turibus was superb. Comfortable, punctual start, with knowledgeable tour guides and went through several landmarks. You go outside Larcomar shopping centre to catch it at 9:15 am or 2:30 pm and end back at the same place 4 hours later. The views were great and the 2 stops at Barranco and Plaza Mayor were worth it. We learned a lot about Peru while taking photos and enjoying ourselves. Good value for money. They’re working on turning it into a hop-on/off bus with more stops in future.
