What Our Clients Are Saying
"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!"
"My trip was fantastic. I packed an awful lot into a short time but still came home energized rather than exhausted. Your guides were all wonderful. They looked after me extremely well, especially Fabiola, who let me join her family for the Semana Santa celebrations. Fabiola knew exactly were to go and even where to stand to get the most out of the experience. It was a real treat. Thank you so much for the organization. No doubt I shall be in touch soon to plan another trip with Yampu! "

"We had a wonderful time in Guatemala. It was especially nice having our own private tour. The tour guides were all excellent, and we appreciated the promptness of the driver or guide each morning. The hotels were good too. "
"The trip was amazing and we had a great time. We particularly loved the hotel and the whole of Guatemala. We also loved the springs resort and spa, and Pelican Eyes. La Tortuga was fine and quite cute rooms a bit small though. All the guides were fantastic and no worries with any of them all transfers went very well. Thanks it was a really great trip! "
"We very much enjoyed our trip to Guatemala. Yampu was very helpful, especially when we needed to contact the airline. Hugo, our guide in the Antigua area, was brilliant. He made every effort to teach us about the history, politics and culture of the area, take us off the typical tourist trail and introduce us to locals, and even to teach us Spanish. The choice of hotels was first class, and the service was faultless. All in all, we had a very pleasant time and came away with some fantastic memories. "
