"I have had the pleasure of working with Karolina with Yampu for years on multiple complicated itineraries. Karolina knows her product and always seems to provide the right fit for the client. Yampu has great resources and fantastic guides. Would highly recommend."
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. "
