Rave reviews

I just read the recent post on the blog about the Taste of China tour. You missed one thing that was included in the price; 100% pure awesome. My fiance and I took this trip last October and was astounded at what we got. The hotels were top notch. The other travelers were a joy (not your doing, but, I'll give you the credit anyway). The guide, Peter, was unbeatable. The sites...oh the sites...those were too amazing to describe. An experience never to be forgotten. I had been a little wary of booking the trip with a company I had never heard of. I searched around and couldn't find anybody who had anything bad to say about you. The price seemed too good to be true for everything that was included. But, we decided that we would take a chance. I'm *so* glad we did. After the wedding, we will be going on as many Friendly Planet trips as we can muster the vacation time for :). We took every optional tour available...we didn't really see them as optional; how could you miss these opportunities?!?! The dinner with the family provided possibly one of our favorite nights on the trip and definitely the best food. I have been meaning to send a message off to you thanking you for providing such an outstanding opportunity, and your blog post prodded me into doing just that. Thank you. We look forward to seeing Egypt next...then Morocco...Thailand...India...
