Save time, save money… travel without a care in the world.


Yampu Tours includes everything you need for your journey– and we often incorporate components that you didn’t know you needed. We’re specialists with extensive experience and are alert to what you’ll need for a flawless, immersive experience. How about lunch in a remote location; permits for limited access hikes at Machu Picchu or the invaluable ticket you may not know you need to gain access to historical sights? And we put your mind at ease by making sure your luggage is safe and sound at your destination, so you can blissfully hike or head to one location, while your luggage needs to be somewhere else. We’ll make sure your belongings are waiting for you.

If and when available, Yampu Tours is able to secure hard-to-get amenities— the promo we negotiate just for you, Inca Trail permits and Galapagos boats.   We’ve got it covered. And chances are we know more about your destination than the locals you’ll encounter!

Transfer, hotels, airfares…no worries, these details belong to Yampu. We have the ability because of our special relationships and know-how. We offer outstanding value and save you money because we’ve been working in this industry since 1998 and have negotiated rates with hotels and other travel suppliers.  We’ll route you in the most efficient way possible, saving you hundreds of dollars. And just as importantly, we’ll save you time, before and during your trip.


Yampu Tours has received the prestigious World Travel Award as South America’s Leading Tour Operator for seven consecutive years, and for the third successive year as Mexico and Central America’s Leading Tour Operator. We are also members of IATA and ARC. We are fully bonded and based in the United States.



Your guide is key, and ours are time-tested, assuring a great experience. They are not only the last word in expertise, but also possess a love of developing relationships with their charges. Whether guiding a fun-loving family or a group of intellectuals, our guides possess a knack for intuiting what’s needed.

Because of our guides’ insider knowledge, their assistance includes special touches and benefits that you would not be able to procure on your own. It’s difficult to appreciate the value of these special touches until you’re actually experiencing them, and it’s impossible to put a value on their ability to mitigate any emergency on your behalf.

Our transfers include a professional driver and your guide, and they make your auto journey a joyful “road trip” rather than a harrowing experience. And—our transfer guides are problem solvers, assisting you with your bags at the airport, often waiting while you check in and alleviating any problems.



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.

The operations department verifies that your travel document details match your plane tickets and local arrangements.  We monitor flight changes that take place after you book and alert your tour consultant if this necessitates a change to your itinerary. We monitor acts of nature that might affect your trip, and, if necessary, work with your tour consultant to reschedule or reroute you. This is bespoke treatment for you, our valued client.

Many tour companies don’t sell airfare, but we find that booking flights for you is one of our most important travel components, because your travel times need to integrate smoothly with your itinerary. We bundle and use our net rates when possible to save you money.

It’s important that you know the power of booking with Yampu rather than on your own. Our quote will most often include airfare, hotel, and travel excursions selected exclusively for you, based on our conversations; nothing hidden, no surprises—we’ve got it handled!
