This was our first ever group tour package... and we'll definitely consider another with Friendly Planet based on our experience! The accommodations are all high quality and unique; hotel service outstanding. Our enthusiastic guide, Vivian, and capable driver Jose, were warm, hospitable, knowledgeable ambassadors for their country. Vivian enjoyed maximizing our experiences whether it was at a simple ice cream stop or describing in detail church art treasures. And she's lots of fun! Highlights for my husband Harris and I were the two amazing days spent at Casa del Suizo in Amazonia. Our local guide, Ramon, welcomed us into his culture and literally made the jungle come alive letting us sniff aromatic termite nests or offering us freshly cut jungle hearts of palm to eat. And then there was the blow dart tournament...

What a great trip we just had in Ecuador! Patricio, our guide, did a terrific job informing us of facts about Ecuador and challenging us physically on a hike through the Amazon forest. It was so exciting to tube on an Amazon tributary. Each day we were clearly prepared for what was happening and contributed to the choice several times. The animal refuge was inspiring as our guide shared his experiences restoring abused and/or orphaned animals to good health and, hopefully, return to the wild. The quality and quantity of food was top notch, and hotels provided R&R as well as shelter. Bus trips were extensive because of winding, narrow and steep roads, but Patricio kept us involved with historic and cultural info of the areas we visited. Big bang for the buck again with Friendly Planet. They're hard to beat.
