Your professionalism, support, and understanding regarding my personal concerns is greatly appreciated

Ruby, how do I begin to thank you for the amazing trip you arranged for my wife and I to Peru and Bolivia this summer. Your professionalism, support, and understanding regarding my personal concerns is greatly appreciated. You and your staff went above and beyond to help me with my needs that made our trip truly an amazing one. I only have great things to say to my friends and family about all that you did for us. My wife loved Machu Picchu and it was great staying at the luxurious Inkaterra in Aguas Caliente. Ruby, thank you for everything. You know that I will highly recommend you to any of our friends that are considering a trip to south-america. Also, thank Jeff and Stephanie for all their help as well. Speak to you soon.

Your local connections were very supportive

Even though the loss of the permanent resident card and the loops we had to jump through did stain the trip some, it was nothing against the enormous satisfaction with the whole trip. We were very impressed with entire arrangement. The guides were always on time and all of them were extremely helpful and knowledgeable in their field. The timing of each segment of the tour was excellent and we really felt a great combination of valuable tour segments and adequate time to explore on our own and still get time for a little relaxing. The Amazon was great and the Inkaterra Reservation was first class. The tours there were great. The only disappointment was the lack of animal life outside of the compound. Of course the Machu Picchu was beyond belief and we really enjoyed the climbing of the Huayna Picchu. We topped the day with trekking to the Sun Gate. Cusco was a great experience and it was a real eye opener to travel and visit the backcountry of Peru and see how people live there. It is like going back several hundred years but more importantly it looked like people enjoyed their life.We had not set our hopes for bolivia very high but it was a real surprise. We enjoyed the islands and got a chance to visit one of the floating islands. The trip was very improved by our excellent guide Icla. She was extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to be around. La Paz is a very interesting city and with the unexpected extra days there we got to know the city even better.Your local connections were very supportive while we dealt with our paperwork issue and even arranged for a guide and bus to take us to the airport when we finally headed home. Back home we are so much aware of the culture and people of part of south-america and will most likely try other destinations in that part of the world in the future. Again, thank you to you and Yampu Tours for a great trip!
