Rave reviews

I've visited over 20 countries but this was my first journey to Asia and I had a fabulous time! During my Taste of Thailand tour I made many memories that I will cherish forever. The experience of riding atop a majestic elephant in tropical, stunningly picturesque rural Kanchanaburi, followed by a leisurely bamboo raft ride down the jungle ensconced River Kwai was truly priceless. Also, I found myself very touched by the history that was shared at the Hellfire Pass Memorial Museum. And, finally I must say that that I was especially grateful for our tour guide Lek Atchara. Not only was she knowledgeable, patient, and kind, but she also went out of her way to make sure my special dietary needs were accommodated. This is the first trip I've taken since I've become a vegetarian where I've been able to find such a variety of absolutely delicious local cuisine. This was one of my best vacations ever!

Thanks Friendly Planet for all of your help. You were wonderful. You were always willing to go out of your way to make this trip to Egypt work for me. You always responded to my contacts in a timely manner. Thank you so much.
