We know the culture; we know the people.


You’ll find the Yampu Difference throughout your journey. Yampu Tours is dedicated to international travel, which departs from mainstream tourism and seeks to create personalized experiences for our clients.   We don’t like unwelcome surprises…and we’re betting that you don’t, either. So, to that end, we have created Terms and Conditions, which is only one paragraph long—nothing is hidden, so there are no surprises.



A very significant Yampu Difference: Your Personal Yampu Tour Consultant, who will be your key to an insider’s extensive grasp of handcrafted experiences. Your Personal Yampu Tour Consultant puts your mind at ease with their knowledge and execution of all travel details, including transportation, lodging and all logistics that may not be readily apparent to the lay traveler. Yampu tours are private and authentic—no ‘cookie cutter’ experiences here!  Our tours are one hundred percent customizable to your whims and wishes.

Our Air Coordinator is your primary flight contact, utilizing extensive resources to navigate the labyrinthine world of air travel, discovering the ideal flights to match your itinerary, schedule, and budget.

Yampu maintains an entire team of operations personnel, standing behind you to ensure that everything goes according to plan—your plan.


We can’t thank you enough for the job you and Yampu did for us. The trip exceeded all expectations and we felt incredibly well cared for by your local guides and Yampu. We will definitely use Yampu the next time we plan an exotic trip beyond our language/managing skills. We did fine with the altitude and are considering a trip to Nepal/Tibet. Does Yampu have expertise there? Again thanks for everything and my birthday wish and chocolates.

Our hotels undergo a rigorous vetting process; we’re genius at searching out small hotels with local flavor and in the best possible location for superlative value.  Adding to our own research is the invaluable feedback from our clients. Local flavor, good location, perfect client feedback, great problem solving, service and value are our hallmarks.   Your dining experiences are reflective of the best that local dining can offer–isn’t that a primary reason why you travel? And you can bet on service that’s nonpareil—we make sure of it.

Your experienced guide on the ground ensures an exquisite, memorable experience.  Our guides are caretakers of your time, and Yampu guides focus on creating the trip of a lifetime.
