Yampu has adventure traveling mastered

The trip was awesome! Your planning and hard work made it a great trip. The local tour group Panama Trails were great, always on time, helpful. We did a lot! We need a vacation from our vacation. Yampu has adventure traveling mastered. I will definitely use you guys again. Even though we did see a lot of Panama. I’m not sure I would do so much domestic flying. Transportation back and forth to domestic airports( during Panama city rush hour), waiting for weather to clear, or flight crew to arrive, ate up a bit of time. Flying to San Blas was an adventure in itself, with the unscheduled stops and “airports” that are not labeled. We did find Playa Chicon and Yandup. The Guna family at Yandup were incredible.

Thank you for planning an incredible trip.

Dream tour of Japan

Yampu Tours helped me design a dream tour of Japan for myself and my eighteen year old son, who is off to college next year. They found activities and venues that I had never thought of that turned out to be the highlights of the trip! They made getting around with minimal language skills a snap. Their guides became what I sincerely hope will be life long friends. The hotels were centrally located and friendly, spotlessly clean, and reasonably priced. We had only nine days, but with everything going so smoothly, we were able to enjoy every minute of the trip. It could not have been better. I can’t wait for my husband to retire so we can call them again for trips for us together. I especially appreciated how Maggie, my contact person, answered every question within hours of when I emailed it to her. She was helpful in every aspect of the trip. She is a great communicator, and always willing to find special places and activities to fit our interests, such as my son’s desire to see the Manga Museum, or my interest in temple gardens. She was flexible, creative, knowledgeable, and always fun to talk to. I look forward to working with her again soon

Pleasant experience during recent trip to Peru

I wished to send you a quick note expressing our pleasant experience during our recent trip to Peru.  I had lived for nearly 2 years in the Cajamarca area and 1 year in Arequipa, over 50 years ago; however, I did not have time to explore and know the history and the Peruvian people during those years.

Our recent trip was made wonderful by the quality of your guides and drivers.  Particularly I wished to say that Ronald Muriel and his driver Milton, located in Cusco, were the best.  Ronald was older, seasoned and had a wealth of historical information and was very patient with my wife, who does not speak Spanish.

Thanks for making our second trip such a pleasure.

Thank you for arranging a once in a lifetime trip for me and AJ on the Delfin and to Machu Picchu.

It was all and more than I anticipated.  We were anxious about travelling alone and were amazed about how effortless you made it.

I don’t think I ever mentioned that I will be 73 this summer and I was determined to make this trip now as I wasn’t getting any younger. AJ is a few years younger but has knee issues.

The only time I got real dizzy was in Chinchero.  We stopped at a textile demonstration and shopping area.  I got out of the car and had to sit down repeatedly.  It didn’t deter me from making purchases.

We are ecstatic that we did this and had so much fun. First – the Delfin.  The entire experience was top shelf.  The accommodations were great. The ship was kept spotless top to bottom every day without any inconvenience to passengers. We enjoyed our time on board almost as much as the time on shore.  The mosquitos never bothered me.  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. Three times we were caught in rainstorms but the heavy rain ponchos came out.  I did see the pink dolphins but didn’t go in for a swim.  It was counter-intuitive for me to NOT drink the water but go in for swimming.  I enjoyed feeding the manatee.  The stop at the village to visit the school was refreshing.  The children were enthusiastic and appreciative.
