Rave reviews

We were totally satisfied with our tour; flawless organization, great tour director and guide (Patricio Placencia), excellent accommodations, good service, very safe ride, well-chosen itinerary that exposed us to a great variety of places and local people.

Simply put, Friendly Planet delivers. Everything promised on the tour was delivered. The tour ran smoothly. I appreciate going to local restaurants rather than just eating in the hotel. The quality of the restaurants were excellent.
