Rave reviews

Booking was easy! The website was very clear in explaining terms. Contact via email and phone was also a very pleasant experience. I found Friendly Planet to be extremely well organized, friendly, and surprisingly affordable for what they offer. I liked the fact that I could reserve with deposit months in advance, then pay the balance due once the departure date was close. This was our first tour with Friendly Planet- the first of many more to come.

Friendly Planet’s staff was pleasant and helpful before we left giving us a feeling of confidence as this was our first time using you. Matt was exceptional in Borneo. He really made us feel important and he went out of his way to make sure we were well cared for. Noi in Bangkok showed consideration and was very helpful in arranging things for us. She was an excellent guide and very thoughtful.
