Rave reviews

From inception the Tour Representatives were extremely helpful and courteous. Your online abilities to communicate with detailed documents was a great convenience (in addition to all your methods of payment for convenience). In all my years of "tour" vacations, I have never been given a rebate and I thank you for considering your clients as one was issued for reduced gas prices. I will be a loyal and returning Friendly Planet Traveler!

It's not very often these days that you get more than promised but that's what we got from Treasures of Thailand. The whole trip including hotels, the tour guide, the food, and the sights seen exceeded our expectations. The days were planned out very well; even the longer travel days included plenty of interesting stops to break up the trip. Others in our group who had toured elsewhere were very impressed with the quality compared to much more expensive tours. I was a little worried about doing a tour bus trip based on stories I heard about them being rigid and too touristy, but this trip included great flexibility, wonderful optional add-ons, and focused on both highlight sights and everyday, local culture. I can't imagine a better way to see so much of Thailand in such an enjoyable way. We loved out tour guide Lucky (Ms. Pensri). She was very knowledgeable, funny, kind, well-organized, and went out of her way to ensure we saw and experienced as much as possible. She was always looking out for us, to the point of going into one hotel's kitchen to get the chef to cook faster and hitching a ride on a local salesman's motorcycle to find a wayward tourer lost at a temple ruins. She was frequently buying local foods for us to sample and making sure we got good deals on local products and services. The second we looked like we had lost something, or we starting looking around for a bathroom, or we looked like we needed second helpings at a dinner, she'd run over to us to see how she could help. I am about to book my next Friendly Planet tour. Thanks for a great trip.
