As a senior solo traveler detailed planning was needed for two months in Belize this winter...It took many weeks of co-operative planning with considerations of preferences and options as well as special needs. The trip exceeded my expectations and gave me a feeling of freedom and emersion in a culture proud of their heritage and natural beauty in spite of limited materialism. I got to snorkel and had one of the best birding experience in my many years of travel. Hats off to Yampu.... Joan Novell"
"I just wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our trip! Everything was arranged & ready as expected. We loved our guides, especially ChrisBert and Eric. I think ChrisBert was everyone's favorite. The resorts were beautiful & every excursion better than the last. The staff at both Hidden Valley and Xanadu were very friendly and eager to please. I will write some great reviews for Yampu and the resorts, just have not had a chance. Thank you for organizing and making it a memorable vacation. I gave out your email to a client of mine today. Have a great day!"
"Our trip was completely amazing! We cannot express enough just how happy we were with Yampu services! Every hotel, tour, transfer and flight was flawlessly easy and each excursion was a wonderful experience. The only thing we had problems with was coming home and dealing with cold weather again!"
"We had a great trip - everything we did was perfect- exactly the trip I wanted - Even the Zoo was nice. ATM cave - amazing, Caracol (Myan ruin) - fantastic - very remote. Hidden Valley Inn - great place (also remote) - nice staff, Butterfly waterfall (on property is also great) Xanadu - San Pedro (Ambergris) very nice - great staff. Snorkeling was some of the best in the world - I have traveled a lot. When in remote areas or the Zoo - Bug spray is a must. Thank you for your help arranging this trip. Yampu did well !!"
"Thank you again for all of your help. We loved the ATM tour, a definite highlight! We had fun on our first dive. "
"We loved everything – it really was a perfect itinerary and all the transports were great. The hotels were really top-notch and just what we expected. We did a river tour on the first day in the Black Orchid that we enjoyed. The Belize Zoo is really unique and worth the visit. We also thought the Mayan ruins in both Belize and Guatemala were exceptional. We liked the cave tubing. Ramon’s Village was very good and the water activities superb. "
"Both Joan and I had a fabulous time away and very much appreciate everything that you did to make it possible. The wildlife, particularly the sea turtles we saw laying their eggs, the monkeys, the tapir we tracked, and all of the different bird types that we encountered, were all great experiences. We also enjoyed the relaxation time that we had in Belize, where the snorkeling and diving was also good."
