Rave reviews

My daughter & I recently returned from a wonderful tour of Vietnam and Cambodia. Thank you for taking such good care of us and rerouting us out of the path of typhoon Haiyan. That could not have been easy, especially from the other side of the planet. Now that we are home again, we can say that watching Haiyan's approach on CNN was quite memorable, right up there with visiting Angkor Wat and cruising Halong Bay. My husband also sends his thanks for keeping him informed and for your very impressive service.

It has been six months since our Pyramids and Petra tour, and we keep getting more and more impressed, as we speak to people and watch TV, with just how comprehensive our trip with Friendly Planet was. Sometimes it seems as if we have seen everything there is to see and done everything there is to do; and we can't wait to go back and do it all again!
