"I can't begin to tell you how impressed we are with the organization and the service we have received throughout our tour. At every transition we were met on time with a smiling face. The quality of all the guides and drivers has been exceptional.
We had about 3 minutes of confusion when we got off the train in Agua Calientes. We were expecting to see a Yampu sign but there was none. We figured out who it was after a few questions. Additionally they had us down as Mr. Jerry. No last name. As I said we solved this rather quickly. It was the only hiccup we had.
Yesterday I was not feeling well (the altitude) and nearly did not go on the afternoon tour. The guides were especially kind and helped me decide which stops would be too difficult and had the driver drop and pick up in the most convenient locations.
I'd like to add that having the same guide and driver on 3 of our transfers (hotel to train, train to hotel and hotel to airport) was really nice. The added service of our guide seeing us through the airport to security today was a very nice touch. We travel a lot and really didn't need the assist, but it was very nice.
We found the service and accommodations at each of the hotels excellent. I particularly loved the hotel in Sacred Valley. I needed another day there.
Everything has been top notch. The service you provided us in designing our tour was great. I couldn't have asked for more. I have already been giving out your name as a referral. But now that we have seen the end results, I will be singing your praises even more.
Thank you to you and everyone at Yampu and Lima Tours."
"First, many, many, many "thank yous" to you for what an amazing trip you put together for us.
The trip itself was beyond our wildest expectations. Peru was amazingly beautiful and spectacular, there were literally times where my breath was taken away with the beauty of the country and it had nothing to do with the altitude. Everyone was wonderful and gracious and really made us feel welcome. Our guides were always on-time, very informative, friendly, and we really enjoyed our time with each of them. Our meals were wonderful and such a delight. I pretty much did tasting menus everywhere, which really allowed me to enjoy so many things that I did not even know existed and certainly, I cannot get them in the United States.
Everything was truly beyond our expectations and I cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work in making this a truly once in a lifetime, incredible vacation for us both! Again, THANK YOU!!!!"
"Your portion of the trip was flawless. Everything was perfectly coordinated and to my expectations. Thank you so much.
I have written to Marriott which is how I booked the boat portion of the trip and suggested they use you for their explorer collection. I gave them your #. I also gave your # to many people that we were traveling with.
Thank you so much for putting together such a perfect trip!
"Every guide has been amazing. Very knowledgeable about the country and all spoke great English, which made it easy. All drivers were friendly, amazing drivers! Yampu got us into the right hotels, loved them all. There has not been one glitch on our trip. The whole trip was wonderful thanks to Yampu."
"It was a wonderful trip. Very well organized! The guides were excellent and even the transfer people seemed to cater to our every need. We really appreciate all your hard work and will happily recommend your services to anyone traveling to Peru."
"It was all and more than I anticipated. We were anxious about travelling alone and were amazed about how effortless you made it. We are ecstatic that we did this and had so much fun.
The Delfin entire experience was top shelf. The accommodations were great. The ship was kept spotless top to bottom every day without any inconvenience to passengers. Our stateroom was spacious and the view was spectacular. The public areas were inviting. The food and its presentation were something we looked forward to at every meal. The crew was helpful, solicitous and always available. They were fun too. The trips on the skiff were fun and adventurous yet very safe. The naturalists seemed to be very knowledgeable and enjoyed their jobs; and the skiff drivers always got us to interesting spots on the river.
We enjoyed our time on board almost as much as the time on shore. I can brag that I saw two anaconda, several poisonous tree frogs and beetles, lots of waterfowl, several species of monkeys and fished for piranha. I did see the pink dolphins and enjoyed feeding the manatee. The stop at the village to visit the school was refreshing. The children were enthusiastic and appreciative.
The drivers and guides were very helpful and gracious. They were always there, waiting.
I was fascinated with the ruins and how the city of Cusco was built. We had a great guide. Machu Picchu, while brief, was the main point of the trip for me. I am still processing the awesomeness. I cried a few times just realizing I was finally there – 40 years after first reading about it and wanting to visit the site. The guide at Machu Picchu was special, helping us set the pace and take the time to soak it in.
We were especially grateful that the guides saw us all the way to check in our bags at the airlines. That went a long way to take airport stress out of the equation. It was unexpected and very appreciative.
I am thankful we found Yampu and for your brilliant planning and patience with our myriad of questions as we ramped up for the experience."
"It was an unforgettable trip. We were very blessed with good weather. Some days we had rain but we managed to get nice photos with the sunshine too.
I have shared with my friends who are planning to go to Peru in October."
