Customer Testimonials

Below are just a few rave reviews from our customers. See more testimonials.

We weren't sure what to expect (especially at this price), and quite honestly, we were thoroughly impressed. The tour guides were not only knowledgeable but very friendly. The accommodations were pristine and the adventure well, enough cannot be said for all that Egypt has to offer. We were a little concerned about any anti-American feelings that could be present there. On the contrary, the locals seemed to be warm, wonderful people who opened themselves up to us so very easily. We felt completely safe every step of the way! I highly recommend this trip to anyone who may have an interest in seeing Egypt.

Scott Hebert, Gardner, MA

Airport to hotel transfer was on time and friendly. Guide was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and traveled with us the entire tour. She was also able to very good suggestions for our free time. Toured historical sites - an awesome impressive experience. Local guides very professional and knowledgeable.

Maria Montavlo

Friendly Planet was very easy to book with. We talked with our tour guide about other groups' experience with other tour groups. She said that she felt that Friendly Planet was the most honest of all of the tour companies: 'if they said that we were going to get a 5 star hotel, we got one'. Our restaurants were very well chosen. We loved having private dining rooms to be away from the hustle bustle of the rest of the restaurants. The food was very nice...plenty of it!

This was a great trip at a reasonable cost to re-discover Havana after almost 14 years since last visit - not much has changed. Our Cuban tour guide Laura was great and the pace of the trip was enjoyable. We saw plenty of venues during the day and usually had the evenings to ourselves to explore the restaurants and nightlife of the city. I would recommend the Discover Havana tour for anyone desiring to see Havana, drink Mojitos, hear good music, savor fine dining inexpensively, smoke a good cigar, and/or have a good time.

We have traveled all over the world and this was our best trip yet!!! I don't know why we waited so long to see Ireland as I'm half Irish!
