Rave Reviews

In writing our evaluation, we did not have enough room to tell you about our guide, Patricio. He was, without a doubt, the most friendly, patient, and knowledgeable guide we have had out of many tours we have taken. We hope that you will pass this information on to the Friendly Planet office in Ecuador, as we feel that he should be given special recognition for the superb representation of your company. We had two medical emergencies with travelers in our group. He was able to get doctors for them and arrange for one of them to join our trip the next day. Another time, while telling us of the exportation from Ecuador of roses, he asked our driver, Jose, to stop for a moment. He came back a few minutes later with roses for all of the women on the bus! These were just two of the many kindnesses he extended to our group. He really understands the meaning of "guest service" and is to be commended for the way he conducts a tour. We came away feeling like honorary Ecuadorians!

Ecuador & Galapagos Islands

I just returned from Ecuador on a Friendly Planet tour, and I cannot even begin to express how impressed I am with Friendly Planet. The trip was amazing, and we did more than I could imagine in 7 days. I have been on trips with other organizers before, but this was by far the most organized and well-led trip I have been on. Our tour guide was phenomenal, and everything ran right on schedule, with unbelievable accommodations, an abundance of delicious meals, and incredible scenery everywhere. I would absolutely recommend Friendly Planet to other travelers, and look forward to traveling with them again in the future.
