My wife and I had the greatest travel experience with Friendly Planet! From start to finish the trip went without a hitch! The driver met us at the Dubai airport and loaded our luggage, transported us to the JW Marriot hotel. Throughout the trip he and the guide were on time, thoughtful and friendly! All of the side trips we purchased went smoothly! After Dubai we went to Kenya where we were met by the tour guide and driver. After I gathered the luggage I was a bit apprehensive because I had not seen our driver and tour guide yet. When I stepped outside there they were with the local tour sign I was expecting. From day one the trip was amazing and very well planned! A trip of a life time with nothing but great memories!

Vacationing in Italy for Spring Break was our 13-year-old son's idea. We hadn't a clue how to pull it all together in less than 5 weeks, and then a friend recommended Friendly Planet. From the get-go (meaning my initial contact with your reservation agent), I knew that we would be in good hands. The tour of 8 key cities in Italy, including Rome, Florence, Venice, and Siena, was beyond our wildest expectations. And the price was right! And our charming tour guides were one better than the other! We also enjoyed the company of our fellow travelers -- all truly wonderful people. Since then, every chance I get, I recommend Friendly Planet to my family and friends.
