Experience rich cultural Peru tours with Yampu and see a unique country, with geography that ranges from the peaks of the Andes to the arid plains of the Pacific coast and the tropical forests of the Amazon Basin. On our Peru tours hike the Inca Trail or discover Machu Picchu by train. Explore Lake Titicaca, the Colca Canyon and the Nazca Lines. Peru stands out in South America not only as a country with scenery that grabs you by the lapels, but also as one with rich culture. Many of its native people speak Quechua and have lifestyles marked by tradition. As the most influential city in Peru's Viceroyalty, Lima has well-preserved colonial architecture and some of the finest, South American restaurants.
Many of our Peru tours include Lima, Cuzco and a visit to Machu Picchu. We also offer thematic tours such as spiritual tours, Peru Amazon tours (with an optional Amazon River cruise add-on), tours that showcase Peru’s wildlife, as well as a number of side trips that can be mixed and matched as you see fit.
"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 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."

"We can’t thank you enough for the job you and Yampu did for us. The trip exceeded all expectations and we felt incredibly well cared for by your local guides and Yampu. We will definitely use Yampu the next time we plan an exotic trip beyond our language/managing skills. We did fine with the altitude and are considering our next trip with Yampu. Again thanks for everything."

"We are having a trip of a lifetime. Everything has been perfect. We are both impressed with Yampu- the itinerary, the hotel selections, the staff both Yampu, hotel, and concessions. We both had tears in our eyes experiencing the Inca blessing ceremony with the wonderful family in Mismany. We can't thank you enough."
