Customer Testimonials

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

Morocco was fantastic. I love Friendly Planet's service. It is outstanding. I can't say enough good things about the hotels, how well organized everything is, the guides, the whole works!!

Anna Schmidt, La Grange, TX

It was a pleasure to deal with Friendly Planet. The flights took off without a hitch. The hotels were first rate, if not better. The tour director, Praveen, was congenial, thoughtful and efficient, getting us to the head of any line. He went out of his way to make our vacation special. The local guides were full of information and easy to understand. Based on what we got on this trip, Friendly Planet is a bargain!

Brenda Kibler, Monkton, MD

Friendly Planet does it right and does it well. Your focus is on the traveler, your service is very responsive, and your prices are very reasonable. The real advantage to a novice traveler, such as myself, comes from having experts who take the hassle and the fear out of the unknown (new countries), and the guided tours are well organized and very instructive. Friendly Planet is one of the best, if not the best, travel agencies that I will [travel with] again and again.

Dana Davis, Wyncote, PA

A Taste of Vietnam with the Bangkok extension was a great tour! In Thailand, our guide, Lek, was amazing! She called us her "family," and that's how we felt while in Bangkok. She suggested great tours, fabulous massages, eating experiences (durian, jackfruit), and an overall lovely picture of her country. Thanks, Lek!

Mary Jane Healey, Springfield, VA

We recently completed our 16 day "Best of China" tour. It was a marvelous fast paced tour that included so many historic sites and amazing cities and landscapes. Kate Katubi our travel agent at Friendly Planet was the most professional agent to have been paired with. She gave us information about our trip beforehand that was most valuable including currency exchange rates, what to wear and what to expect. She was spot on!! Kate was sharing her expertise up to the day we left for this wonderful vacation. When I use Friendly Planet for another vacation I would prefer Kate to make our arrangements. The National tour guide, Sam, was very professional and an encyclopedia of information. All of the local tour guides were extremely informative. The hotels were all 5-star and very comfortable. The Victoria Anne Yangtze riverboat cruise was fantastic. Every day was an adventure of a lifetime. The tour group was small enough so that we could enjoy every moment. Thank you Friendly Planet and Kate for giving us a vacation we will be talking about for years to come.
