Rave reviews

My husband and I just got back from the "Ecuador and Galapagos" trip with Friendly Planet. It was our first trip with them and we are ready to sign up for another! It was a fabulous trip and extremely well planned and conducted. We were impressed with every aspect of the trip and felt it was everything we had hoped. The tour guides were knowledgeable, on time, and gave us a wonderful insight into the culture of Ecuador. The Galapagos portion on the M/N Santa Cruise was outstanding! Each of the guides on had in-depth knowledge of the wildlife and provided a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Thanks for a great trip!

My wife and I just got back from Peru. It's my 3rd trip with you, her first. We very much enjoyed our trip. She was impressed by the attention to detail, organization, and value. I wasn't surprised—I expected it. I was especially pleased with the tour guide we met at Cusco (Elvie). She was very good at attending to our needs and guiding us at Machu Picchu. She balanced educating us without being boring or dragging things out. The driver (Jesus) did an excellent job navigating narrow, mountainous roads.
