My uncle and I just returned from the "Incredible Thailand" tour. Let me start by saying this was our second trip with Friendly Planet. We decided it was time to take another trip and didn't even bother with any other sites. We knew Friendly Planet was the way to go. This was the trip of a lifetime!! All of the accommodations were exquisite. The Temples were amazing. It was really interesting to see people trading, eating, and interacting at the Floating Market. The elephant trip through the jungle and orchid farm was breathtaking. I can't possibly begin to express how amazing our tour guide Lek was. It was like meeting a friend you hadn't seen in a while. She spoke proudly of her culture, her country, her people, and her King. Often when on driving portions of the tour, Lek would have our driver pull over so she could jump out and buy some of the local flavors. She also wanted to make sure that we didn't miss a single thing on this trip. When it was time to go our separate ways many of us said a tearful goodbye. So thank you again you made this trip more amazing than I could have ever hoped for.
