Yampu designed the perfect tour and was there making the arrangements when I wanted to extend mid-trip. Actually booked a second tour while still in the middle of my first. Such personal service is rare these days."
"Yampu Tours and Stephanie Rudolph put together an amazing trip for us to Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, and Japan. The hotels in Southeast Asia were wonderful, top-of-the-line! The transportation was very good. And, our guides were fantastic! We will definitely use Yampu Tours again!"
"Yampu tours did an excellent job putting together our tour. Specifically, Karolina, our Yampu rep, excelled at getting to know us; our likes/dislikes, interests, etc., and constructed a tour that met all of our needs. The sites were amazing, guides were professional and knowledgeable, divers were safe and courteous and everything went off without a hitch. Further, any changes that were needed or questions we had were dealt with in an expedited manner. Listening and communicating with the customer are huge parts of most jobs, but specifically, tourism and Karolina is great at both. We intend to use Yampu again in the future, and specifically, recommend Karolina for your travel needs."
"You did a great job in putting our trip to Myanmar, Cambodia and Thailand together considering all we did and where we did it. I want to commend Yampu, especially on all the guides and drivers such as they were very good. The guides were knowledgeable, very friendly, spoke good enough English and were courteous...I would not hesitate to have them in our home."
"I want to commend to Yampu especially all the guides and drivers such as they were very good to Mary recognizing her limitations. The guides were knowledgeable, very friendly, spoke good enough English and courteous...I would not hesitate to have them in our home."
"Superb moment and time. Great people here.Great hotels. Great tours. A big thank you again! Excellent organization, Ananda experience and owner's suite was a great idea. We enjoyed to be alone! On that boat. Great resort on Inle lake as well. For the rest, excellent guides and great diversity of opinions. Marvellous country and people. Again thank you for your time and care attitude. Respectfully,"
"All in all, this was a great trip. I am reminded of something I read in a travel book some years ago which said Here's what I love about travel; strangers get a chance to amaze you. In Myanmar, I found myself constantly amazed. I would love to go back and pick up the areas of the country that I missed on this trip and spend more time in the sites that I found to be particularly interesting and which required more time than I had on this trip to do them justice. I think things will begin to change rapidly in Myanmar now that liberalization has begun. I appreciate all the work Yampu staff put into developing this custom itinerary for me, and I wish all of you great success in building your business in Myanmar."
