What is Ecuador Hop?
Ecuador Hop is a hop-on, hop-off private bus system that not only gets you from point A to point B, but goes off the beaten track to hidden gems that would be impossible to get to, or know about, if you’d just followed the guidebooks. That’s why we have partnered with a local family-owned Ecuadorian business with decades of experience in tourism who can help provide that local, insider knowledge!
How it Works?
1. CHOOSE A PASS
Choose from a variety of passes, depending on where you want to start, where you want to go, and how much time you have.
2. PLAN YOUR ITINERARY
View our recommended plans for the whole trip or simply make your own plan. Or, for the spontaneous, make no plans– just hop on and go with the flow! Our passes are perfect for everyone, whether you want to squeeze it all into a few days or hop off somewhere along the route and stay for a longer period of time.
Note: Our passes are incredibly flexible, but if you want a fixed tour with everything organized and booked in advance for your whole trip (e.g. all accommodation and extra activities) then that is no problem at all. You can use our itinerary planner within each pass, and then book your own accommodation and tours to match this itinerary. OR, if you prefer, email our local experts who will assist you with everything you need.
3. START YOUR TRIP
Get picked up from your hotel and start your trip, or if staying in an Airbnb simply email us and we will make a plan! At every destination, we will pick you up and drop you off wherever you are staying.
4. HOP ON AND HOP OFF
You decide how long to stay at each stop. Maybe stay one night or one month, it’s up to you! Your pass will be valid for one whole year, so you don’t have to worry about those dreaded fixed schedules other companies offer. Simply log in to your HOP LOGIN account and change your itinerary on the go.
5. FINISH YOUR TRIP
Finish your trip and pick up a free t-shirt at the end of your route (subject to availability).
