This was my second trip with Friendly Planet, and will not be the last. I'm so pleased with the excellent VALUE of these tours! Excellent guides, wonderful itineraries, good accommodations, ample food: and all at a very reasonable price. I think Friendly Planet does an excellent job of supplying an excellent experience.

Dave and I just got back from our trip on Monday—we had a blast! It was a great trip in every way! All of the Friendly Planet representatives in both Dubai and Kenya were helpful, pleasant and professional. We will be sure to book through Friendly Planet again!

Just returned from Authentic Havana, my 7th trip with Friendly Planet and another perfect travel experience. Gary, Mily, and Otto were a great team and looked after us exceptionally well! They laughed, we laughed, and that laughter, combined with the perfect casa, paladares and tours, made this trip educational, eye opening and FUN!!!

Mary Jane Healey, Oaklyn NJ

The hotel was over-the-top fabulous. I learned so much about the history and culture during this tour from very well-informed guides, who so obviously love their country and loved sharing their knowledge with us. I LOVED SHANGHAI. Loved our guide Alan - so well informed - so much fun. He had us in stitches the whole time. Tours were great - Silk factory REALLY caused me to willingly leave money in China! It was fascinating to learn the process from moth to finished product. In Hangzhou, I took my first ever bullet train ride. And first ever gondola ride too, West Lake and the gardens on the shore are really beautiful. Jinshan Museum was very well presented. I loved that the museum was built right on top of the dig site and we could actually see the work in progress. They had an excellent display of recovered artifacts. The Giant Panda Research Center was FANTASTIC. My prior travel has been on cruises or self-guided tours. Never again. Friendly Planet has me totally convinced that the best way to experience the sights and sounds and tastes and culture of a country/region is to LIVE it - not just walk around a port or jump on a bus to do activities that can be done at home.

My sister and I had a wonderful time in the land of Egypt. The best parts for me were seeing the Temple of Queen Hopshepsut and riding up the Nile. I enjoyed my trip with Friendly Planet and will go on another. Thanks!
