Best trip to Ecuador!

Yampu tours created the most amazing experience in Ecuador for us! I traveled with my sister and my dad and the trip was enjoyable for all of us with varying interests. We had amazing guides for every leg of the trip and everything was flawlessly coordinated including the (many) boats we took throughout the Galapagos. Most importantly, we felt safe and well-cared for. Cannot recommend this company enough!

Third trip with Yampu and still very satisfied

Great trip to Kenya, Tanzania, and Madagascar. Third trip with Yampu and still very satisfied. Just beware the roads of Madagascar and the dusty roads of the parks of Kenya and Tanzania!

Our tour agent Maggie thought of every detail and we will forever keep her in our thoughts!

We had an outstanding trip in Peru! Our driver Mario was safe and efficient, and he was always there for us! Our tour guide Dante was articulate, he was very informative, and he also was always there for us. We felt welcome, supported, guided to many different places with everything taken care of for us, and every question answered. Someone was always there to escort us, and make us feel special. The tour to Machu Picchu was excellent, as was our trip through the Sacred Valley! Our tour agent Maggie thought of every detail and we will forever keep her in our thoughts!

My son and I recommend Yampu enthusiastically!

Travel to FINLAND with YAMPU If you know that the capital of Finland is Helsinki but can’t quite place it on the map, or if you’ve heard that Santa Claus comes from Lapland but don’t know that Lapland is in the northern part of Finland; or if you want to hike with an expert guide in the spectacular Pyah-Luosto National Park,(where you actually do see Russia from Finland’s backyard), use Yampu to arrange the trip. My son and I recommend Yampu enthusiastically! They “tailor-made” our Finland trip this past July. There were a lot of phone calls and double-checking and e-mailing before it was finalized. Every hotel, from the Helsinki’s Presendentii (in the heart of the city) to the Kalevala Lodge on the lake outside Kuhmo, was excellent. Yampu’s staff is savvy and well-traveled does their homework. Even our drivers were knowledgeable and easy to get along with. For example, because they knew we wanted to see wildlife, they arranged for us to spend a night in a bear blind on the Soviet border to see brown bears, wolverines, and wolves in their natural habitat. I read that “In Finland, there is freedom to roam.” Finland’s wilderness is pristine, but the culture is interesting also We read up on the Winter War (Nov 1939) when the Finns, outnumbered 10-1, repelled the Russian army. A nice touch–our hotel Kalevala was a short walk to Winter War Museum. Finns love the sauna–it’s their invention. In a country of 5 million people, there are 3 million of them. Every hotel has one and it’s a must-do. The Finns have many sayings about the sauna, like: “The sauna is a poor man’s pharmacy.” “A house without a sauna is not a home.” Maybe the sauna is not as exciting as a bear blind but it is “educational.” Most Finns you meet in a sauna speak English and tell great stories. And you have to have their coffee–it’s better than any we ever in South America. –A lot of surprises, but all good ones. Two Thumbs up for Yampu on this trip.
