We just got home and I thought I'd write a little note about how fantastic our tour of China worked out to be. We were a little apprehensive at first - letting someone else take the "driver's seat" on our vacation - but going with a group tour for China is the way to go. Our tour guide, Vivian, was patient, informative, and absolutely made our trip unforgettable. She was flexible about letting us add a few things to the itinerary - such as a quick trip by a snack food market in Beijing so we could get pictures of our friends eating scorpions and other nasty critters. She even went the extra mile to make sure there was a cake for my husband's birthday. We went ahead and did almost all of the optional tours on the itinerary, and it was really a great way to see everything because they thought of things I probably wouldn't have. Can't wait to book the next one!

My wife and I just returned from our first Friendly Planet trip, which was to Ecuador. We were very pleased with the tour. The accommodations were very excellent. The transportation in the country was on a nice bus with an outstanding driver (Pablo). Our tour guide was Patricio Placencia. Patricio did a wonderful job as our leader. He is well informed, communicates well, relates well to the group and seeks to be sensitive to the group and its interests and needs. My wife didn't feel well early in the trip and he was very concerned and helpful to her. We were extremely pleased with him and he was very effective in presenting his country and his love for his country to the group. We commend you for having a tour guide who is talented, trained and effective as Patricio was. He was great and we feel blessed by having him show us Exotic Ecuador. Thank you very much!
