Rave reviews

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.

I just returned and wanted to let you know that this trip was absolutely wonderful. It was very well put together, had a great itinerary, involved no surprises, and was a great value. The hotels were outstanding. I truly enjoyed the variety of activities especially in the Amazon Region. Based upon this great experience, I will definitely consider Friendly Planet again.
