Customer Testimonials

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

We had a very interesting trip to Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand. Our tour guide in Vietnam, Toan Truong, was extremely helpful and informative. The guides in Cambodia and Thailand both did a very good job teaching us about those countries. The accommodations and transportation were outstanding! This is our third trip with Friendly Planet and we continue to be very pleased with everything.

Each time I emailed with questions, it was answered within 24 hours. The information provided before the tour was excellent.

Literally just arrived home from our trip to Ecuador and could not wait to share what my friends and I have nominated as the Best Tour Trip Ever. Patricio was fabulous and made us feel like friends/family. The driver, Daniel, took wonderful care of us as well. Each hotel we arrived at made us want to pinch ourselves. The food was delicious and we all want recipes. Wonderful vacation! Wonderful price!

Traveling to East Africa has been a long awaited dream for me. Last November, I was finally able to realize my dream by going on Friendly Planet's 2 week jeep safari to Kenya and Tanzania. The trip was organized locally by Vintage Africa. I cannot sing enough praises for Vintage Africa, and especially our driver guide in Kenya, James Mungai. James was an extremely knowledgeable and attentive guide. His ability to intelligently answer all of our sometimes unusual questions and spot wildlife from miles away never ceased to amaze us. James went out of his way to accommodate our needs and was always patient with all our requests, from stopping to photograph every sunset and tree cluster to positioning his vehicle for the perfect photo opportunity. As a seasoned traveler, I can truly say that this trip has been one of my favorites and having James as our guide contributed to making it so memorable. I can only hope that my next group excursion will be as enjoyable and well organized.

Our family just returned from our first Friendly Planet trip. We went to the Galapagos Islands. The arrangements went so smoothly. All the hotels were even nicer than we had anticipated and the guides were wonderful. There was not one hitch or issue. We can't recommend Friendly Planet highly enough. We had one glitch when the airline that provided transportation between the US and Ecuador stopped flying certain routes but Friendly Planet worked with us to find an alternative route.
