"Excellent! The staff is completely dedicated to making sure your trip is exactly what you want. Our plans changed several times unexpectedly and the staff was understanding and supportive. Additionally, they think of every detail and KNOW things that a traveler would probably not consider. Their recommendations were spot on and the local guides that traveled with us were wonderful! Many thanks for a trip we will remember for years to come!"

"Everything went off exceptionally well. Tour Guides and drivers were always on time and very friendly. My entire trip was planned out in a precise manner and all the good people in Peru working or contracted by Yampu made it happen with no problems. I was a little sad to leave and do miss those I spent a good bit of time with. Everyone was so helpful & nice it made it hard to depart. I thoroughly enjoyed my vacation!!"

"What a wonderful experience! Started when we were met at the airport and transferred to our hotel. Our Yampu tour agent made sure everything was taken care of and then the next day met us and delivered us to the airport where we were met by the guide for our Amazon jungle tour. Every step of the way we were met by friendly, knowledgeable people who took care of us and made traveling in a foreign country not only stress-free but fun. Can’t say enough good things about the experience. Thank you so much."

"Oh my gosh, I had the trip of a lifetime and every bit of it was planned out perfectly. I used to be a travel agent so I know the value and what it takes. Monica did an amazing job and I will use her for all my future travel plans!!"

"Costa Rica was my second trip with Yampu Tours; a graduation gift for my daughter (and me!). Five years ago I used Yampu for a spectacular trip with MY mom to Peru, Machu Picchu, and Iguazu Falls. The pre-travel communication and assistance (for both trips ) was terrific and put me at ease. Once at our destinations (for both trips) the accommodations, organization of our drivers and tours was amazing. Even when there were small glitches, all was handled professionally and without hesitation by the staff in the locations we were visiting. I have already recommended this outstanding company and its staff to other travelers and will continue to do so, without hesitation. Thank you, Yampu Tours! I have many wonderful memories with my mom and now my daughter because of you. I WILL be back. :)"

"Our family of four just returned from a two-week excursion in Peru. We traveled to Lima, the Peruvian Rainforest, Cusco, Urubamba, Machu Picchu and Puno/Lake Titicaca. We stayed in five different amazing hotels during our stay. Our tour operator, Yampu Tours did an exceptional job organizing the trip. We had an incredibly knowledgeable guide with us every step of way meeting us at our hotel managing our domestic air, bus and train transportation in Peru. Every guide was extremely knowledgeable about the sites/attractions. At no point did we ever get lost, feel rushed or left to our own devices (we do not speak Spanish... but we tried). This was easily one of the most carefree/safe trips with lots of adventures along the way. Lima is a city full of culinary delights, the biodiversity of the rainforest was incredible and visiting Cusco, the ancient Inca ruins, indigenous cultures of Puno, and Peruvian people in general was a life rewarding experience. I would wholeheartedly and emphatically recommend Yampu Tours (without reservation) for individuals and families alike for any travel considerations to Peru."

"Very professional and organized every step of the vacation. All tours went as scheduled and all the guides were beyond expectations: knowledgeable and passionate!"

"Great pre-trip communications and coordination. The trip itself was wonderful as well... activities were a perfect mix for the group, with plenty of challenging hikes etc mixed with great scenery, good hotels, and fantastic food.
