Info About Our Luxury Buses

Bolivia Hop – #1 Bus Company In Bolivia

As well as an unbeatable safety record, Bolivia Hop is also famous for its punctuality and comfort. In South America, where things often run later than scheduled, we are very proud to say we achieve a 98.5% on-time arrival for each trip.

If comparing Bolivia Hop to other bus companies, make sure you check their safety record, past accidents, as well as their Tripadvisor page (if they even bother to have one) as often you will find there is a reason why some bus companies have “cheaper” prices than Bolivia Hop.

Features Of Our Buses

  • 40 semi-bed reclining seats: All with sponge foam pads for added comfort.
  • Modern and clean toilet: Unlike public buses that often smell bad and are not cleaned regularly.
  • High-tech temperature controlled air system: We ensure it is never too hot or too cold.
  • 3 LCD TVs on board: Just sit back and enjoy English-speaking movies on longer journeys.
  • Highest quality brake and suspension system: To ensure that every passenger has a smooth and seamless journey.
  • Blankets for every passenger: Snuggle up and get some sleep on longer trips.
  • GPS monitoring system: Allows us to track our buses every step of the way and monitor driver velocity.
  • USB ports on every seat: Charge your phone or any device throughout your whole trip.

Bus Safety Controls

  • Large team of drivers: Our drivers are not overworked/tired as is often the case on other buses.
  • Tour guide onboard: Our tour guide does regular checks on the drivers.
  • Seatbelts: We have a seatbelt for every passenger and ask our passengers to wear them at all times.
  • 24 hour GPS monitoring: Every bus is monitored from a secure point via GPS…we always know where the bus is and if it is taking any unscheduled stops.
  • Constant contact: The drivers and the guide communicate continuously by telephone with the Bolivia Hop office.
  • No tight deadlines: Our drivers are under NO pressure to arrive at a certain time, no need for increased speed or unnecessary risks.
  • Lake crossing capabilities between Copacabana and La Paz. Our bus is purposely built for crossing the lake. Don’t worry, passengers cross on a different boat. Some companies put passengers on the bus as it floats across the lake to try save some money, which is CRAZY!

Frequently Asked Questions

You might have some questions about our service and of course Peru itself. Our FAQs are aimed at helping you with any questions you may have.

Just click on any question and get the answer straight away!

What health and hygiene protocols are in place during the trip?

The health and safety of all of our passengers is, and has always been, our top priority. Due to the current situation, we've examined our protocols, journeys and service to make sure that we exceed the safety expectations of everyone who travels with us. We sought guidance from the World Health Organization and government agencies, and, because of years of experience, we've been able to help define protocols for travel in Bolivia. We're surpassing safety standards, for you, the passenger, and will continue doing so moving forward.

What exactly is a hop-on, hop-off bus?

Our buses follow a specific route and you can hop-on and hop-off at each of our destinations whenever you like, according to our timetable. Your pass is valid for 1 year in 1 direction, so you can stay as long as you want in 1 place or just follow our recommended schedule!

How do I change my itinerary while on the road?

Once you book a ticket, you will get your unique reservation code on your booking confirmation that gives you access to the HOP LOGIN. There, you'll be able to change your travel dates, pick-up locations and put your pass on hold. It's that simple! All changes to your itinerary have to be made a MINIMUM OF 12 HOURS BEFORE YOUR NEXT DEPARTURE DATE!

How do I book extra tours?

We accept tour reservations on our buses but we always recommend reserving tours in advance and paying securely online via FindLocalTrips.com to avoid costly ATM withdrawal fees and currency exchange rate charges.

They offer a very flexible change of tour date policy to Bolivia Hop passengers. Changes are free of charge right up until the day before the tour is due to start.

Is Bolivia Hop available for everybody?

Families, single travelers, couples and groups of friends of all ages are welcome to join us traveling through Bolivia and Peru. Our buses always carry a mix of people from different countries and age groups, that’s what makes traveling with Bolivia Hop such a great experience.

Booking in advance?

We are proud that word of mouth from our ex-hopsters means our tickets often sell out in advance, so we strongly recommend you book as soon as possible. Remember that once you have a ticket, you can change your start date up to 24 hours before departure.

Do the buses run on time?

Bolivia Hop is an EXTREMELY punctual service, especially compared to other Bolivian bus companies who are unfortunately late a lot (as can be seen from their tripadvisor reviews). If you have a tour or hotel booked and in the very rare case our bus is late, our onboard guides will help you by calling your tours and hotels to assist you as much as possible, but really this should never happen on Bolivia Hop.
