We just returned from your Taste of Thailand tour. It was wonderful, and we are already talking about another trip with you! I can't say enough about our whole experience with Friendly Planet. From the very beginning you were helpful and prompt in communicating information to us so we could better plan our trip. Everything went so well. Our tour guide Lek was amazing! She shared Thailand's customs, people and treasures with us in such a way that we will never forget. She is truly one of Thailand's Treasures, and one of Friendly Planet's Treasures as well! Our hotels were amazing...we are still trying to figure out how you can put together such a remarkable trip for the money? Thank you so much for a trip of a lifetime. We are looking forward to traveling with you again!
