Travelling by bus is the most popular form of travel across South America but also can in parts be a little dangerous due to unsafe companies who take unnecessary risks and underpay and overwork their drivers.

For this reason, we only recommend bus companies which have a strong focus on safety and security as well as allowing travellers to see more of this incredible continent.

In Peru, we recommend Peru Hop, a company which was formed in 2013 and has built up an excellent reputation amongst the traveling community. You can read more about them on the Peru Hop website. Note: If traveling to the North of Peru, Cruz del Sur is the best company with a large fleet of modern buses

In Bolivia, we recommend Bolivia Hop, the sister company of Peru Hop, for all the same reasons mentioned above. However, one massive advantage Bolivia Hop offers travellers is border crossing assistance at the infamous Peruvian/Bolivian border with Peru. For more information about Bolivia Hop, check out the Bolivia Hop website.

Whatever your means for traveling across South America, we wish you a safe and pleasant journey.
