What Our Clients Are Saying
"A perfect trip during the post-pandemic. Everything was arranged in advance including PCR tests in different venues, specific restaurants, early check-in and etc. We met some emergency adjustments during the trip. So appreciate Jose's help, without that, we can't have the awesome experience in Chile. All private transportation, tour guides, and hotels are unique, clean, and safe. According to our requirements, Jose provided the best solution to us and also gave us rather valuable suggestions. We highly recommend Yampu to my friends. This is my second time cooperating with them in South America. The whole trip is always wonderful as last time."
"We (husband, wife and two children) have been using Yampu Tours for our family vacations since 2015. Brazil, Chile, Peru, Argentina, South Africa, and Egypt are just a few countries Yampu took us to. As you probably have guessed, we have been extremely satisfied with our experience. The itinerary is always carefully designed and perfectly customized to our family interests / needs. The local guides picked by Yampu are the best. We have encountered more than two dozens of them so far and never had a bad experience. They are all very knowledgeable and reliable and quickly became our friends. Yampu has made travel fun and stress-free. From the moment you arrive at the destination airport to the moment you check in your returning flight, you are 100% taken care of. We have learned to trust Yampu completely, so much so that during the trip, we often woke up in the morning at a foreign hotel, having no idea what will happen during that day, trusting Yampu will take us to amazing place and teach us everything about it. So far, we have not been disappointed."
"We had an amazing three weeks without a glitch. Every transfer took place on time. Our activities were conducted by knowledgeable and pleasant guides. That proved true for the entire 21 days. The is the second time that I have traveled in South America under the wing of Karolina Guilcapi. She was always accurate, price conscious, and patient with our alterations. Since returning from Patagonia, I and my travel companions have recommended Yampu and Karolina multiple time. Put yourself in her hands and travel worry free!"
"Yampu was recommended to me by a friend a couple of years ago and I have been enormously satisfied with the two trips that they planned for me over the past two years. The first was a two week trip to Argentina and Chile, with the highlight being the four days we spent in Patagonia. All of our hotels were terrific and our guides excellent. This January, they planned an 8 day trip to both the wine country and the Atacama Desert for two of us . Again, everything worked beautifully, from our transfers, hotels, etc."
"Our agent Stephanie was the best!!! We were going to several countries in Africa and she made sure our trip was safe, comfortable and loaded with lots of fun. We had trusted tour companies and interesting guides. We always felt we were in good hands. Once one of our connecting flights was late and she already knew it and took care of the issue and us! We have used Stephanie twice now. Once in South America and once in Africa. Our trips were fun and so memorable. Thanks Stephanie."
"Stephanie Rudolph is the BEST!"
"Our recent trip to remote Easter Island was the third vacation we've organized though Karolina Guilcapi of Yampu. The island comprises only 63 square miles, so you might think it would be easy to do things on your own, but there's much to see, and accommodation alternatives, that should be left to experts who have been there. What's great about Yampu is that they customize your trip based on your interests, schedule and budget. We had no idea what island excursions to schedule, so all those decisions were left up to Karolina who, as always, did a great job setting up the four day itinerary, selecting a hotel, and retaining a guide. Everything from the flights to and from Santiago (arranged by Yampu) went smoothly as planned, with their people always on time to meet us and take us on our next daily adventure. We even had a minor incident with being overcharged at a local market that our guide promptly corrected. If you prefer travel outside of group tours, but like my wife and I are inclined to depend on people "in the know" for advice, recommendations and reservations, we don't think you can do any better than Yampu. They are indeed a five star operation!"
