10 Reasons To Use Bolivia Hop While Travelling in Northern Bolivia

2. FASCINATING UNIQUE STOPS AND ACTIVITIES ON THE ROUTE

3. TRAVEL IN SAFETY & COMFORT
Transport safety conditions in Peru and Bolivia can often be a big worry for travellers. Road accidents due to overworked, tired drivers can be a serious issue. However, Bolivia Hop prioritise safety on the road. We have a large team of drivers and assign 2 drivers to any trip longer than 4 hours. We also don’t have any tight deadlines. This is so drivers don’t feel the need to break speed limits rushing on the road. Finally, to ensure safety and comfort there is constant contact between the drivers/guides on the buses and the Bolivia Hop office.
4. AMAZING LOCAL GUIDES!
Our guides are fun and helpful people who are incredibly passionate about their homeland. They are always prepared to assist with whatever you need or answer any questions you may have.
