Yampu is my go to company for years

I just returned from a wonderful trip to Ecuador organized by Yampu. From start to finish everything was perfect! I can not say enough good things about how professional the guides and driver was. Also many precautions are in place for Covid and I never felt unsafe. Yampu is my go to company for years for the Neotropics!

Yampu makes travel fun and stress-free

We (husband, wife and two children) have been using Yampu Tours for our family vacations since 2015. Brazil, Chile, Peru, Argentina, South Africa, and Egypt are just a few countries Yampu took us to. As you probably have guessed, we have been extremely satisfied with our experience. The itinerary is always carefully designed and perfectly customized to our family interests / needs. The local guides picked by Yampu are the best. We have encountered more than two dozens of them so far and never had a bad experience. They are all very knowledgeable and reliable and quickly became our friends. Yampu has made travel fun and stress-free. From the moment you arrive at the destination airport to the moment you check in your returning flight, you are 100% taken care of. We have learned to trust Yampu completely, so much so that during the trip, we often woke up in the morning at a foreign hotel, having no idea what will happen during that day, trusting Yampu will take us to amazing place and teach us everything about it. So far, we have not been disappointed.

Yampu Tours helped me plan my trip to the Galapagos in December 2020 (yes, during COVID 19)

Yampu Tours helped me plan my trip to the Galapagos in December 2020 (yes, during COVID 19). Stephanie Rudolph was my first contact and she not only knew what to ask about, but she also helped me to decide that I wanted to be on a boat, rather than on land with day trips. She was exactly right. She and Jose Irauzqui did a great job with all of my arrangements, such as hotels in Quito, itinerary changes because of flight changes, and guides. I was very happy with this trip.

I highly recommend this company to all travelers

I am extremely thankful that when I was having multiple problems trying to establish a travel insurance claim and refund for the money I lost during Covid19.cancellation.the owner of the company stepped in to help me. Jose Irauzqui jumped in to represent me and he was tenacious and he quickly earned the nickname of Bulldog. He was able to get me the refund for myself and a traveling partner. I have traveled with Yampu before to Bhutan and India and was guided by Stephanie Rudolph. I used to joke with my friends that if I could only run my business as well as this company did, I would be a millionaire many times over. The trip was fantastic and I highly recommend this company to all travelers. Thank you, Mary Makena

travel worry free!

We had an amazing three weeks without a glitch. Every transfer took place on time. Our activities were conducted by knowledgeable and pleasant guides. That proved true for the entire 21 days. The is the second time that I have traveled in South America under the wing of Karolina Guilcapi. She was always accurate, price conscious, and patient with our alterations. Since returning from Patagonia, I and my travel companions have recommended Yampu and Karolina multiple time. Put yourself in her hands and travel worry free!

I highly recommend Yampu Tours.

Our trip from Tokyo, Fuji, Takayama and Kyoto was fabulous. Guides were terrific, itinerary was well balanced but packed with things of interest, and the hotels were uniformly very high quality. I feel that we were closely taken care of from start to finish, from transportation to knowledgeable guides, without having to worry about any details. This level of care, and the thought that went into our itinerary, insured a magnificent trip from start to finish. I highly recommend Yampu Tours.
