Rave reviews

Awesome! Booking was easy. All our pre-trip questions were answered in a professional and timely manner. The trip far exceeded my expectations. The country was a pleasure to visit, and made even better by our guide's intimate knowledge of the people and culture. I have no idea how you provide this kind of trip for the price as the tours, food, accommodations and guides (including assistants and drivers) were fantastic. Our guide gave us such a wide variety of experiences -- including tourist and non-tourist type excursions. You [Friendly Planet] are doing a great job. Keep it up so that we can continue to see the world on our budget!

I knew nothing about Friendly Planet when I booked the trip other than what I saw on their website. I held my breath and took a chance. The trip was fabulous and far exceeded my expectations. Our tour guide was extraordinary and went to great lengths to surpass any traveler expectations. Room accommodations, travel arrangements and a local Indian guide was superior. Kudos to Friendly Planet.
