Rave reviews

First and foremost, as a couple that has travelled extensively around the globe, this trip was without question the "best of the best" in all material respects. From the point of arrival, to the point of departure, your "on-the-ground" team did an outstanding job of maintaining the right balance between chaperone and tour guide. From the perspective of an educational experience, this trip completely dispelled our "American" perceptions, presumptions and preconceived notions of the country, the people and the culture. We left Havana with a clear sense of the history, economy, and political environment within "today's Cuba" -- a compliment to our Itinerary so carefully crafted by your team. We also left wanting more, which is always a good feeling. We would gladly return to Cuba (via Friendly Planet) down the road. Our compliments to you and your staff for an exceptional experience!

Friendly Planet is an agency that I recommend! It was not very expensive and we really got our money's worth out of the trip. To anyone that is interested in traveling, I truly recommend this trip! What impresses me the most about China is that you can see the past, present and the future in all fields.
