Customer Testimonials

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

We just came back from your tour to Athens and the Greek Islands cruise, where we had an absolutely wonderful time. We didn't know what to expect since we had never used Friendly Planet before and didn't know anyone who did, but we were very pleasantly surprised. The tour was very well organized, everything was covered, the hotel in Athens was beautiful and centrally located, the guides were very knowledgeable and friendly, and the food was incredibly delicious. We will certainly book our future trips with Friendly Planet again.

Lewis Saltiel, New York, NY

Our guide here was great; overall one of the best we have experienced. Our guide for the hike was great, nice attention to detail and was very educated on the environment. Patti was our guide in Bangkok and she was fabulous. She really went above and beyond by personally taking us to some of the other areas we wanted to see to ensure we didn't get lost. You can tell she really loves what she does, and like our guide in Kuching, is one of the best we've experienced in all of our travels.

My family and I just returned from the Taste of Ireland tour. It was our first trip with Friendly Planet and I was a little nervous as to whether or not it would live up to its advertising... Our driver/tour guide, Calvin, was fabulous and provided us with lots of information about Irish history and folklore. He made the trip so enjoyable for all of us! The bus was comfortable, the hotels were nice, the food delicious, and the overall experience was a very positive one. We had a wonderful vacation, and would definitely recommend this tour!

My husband and I just returned from India. Our trip was excellent from the beginning of the tour through the end of the trip. The service of the tour guide, Vikas, was superb, very attentive, gentle, friendly, professional and over all very knowledgeable. THANKS VIKAS!!!! This was an extraordinary experience for us. We are now planning to take a tour to Patagonia and we will make our reservation through Friendly Planet of course. We highly recommend this travel agency. Once you use them, you can't let go. Thanks Friendly Planet Travel for making our trip a pleasant journey!

Excellent trip. Over two years ago I went with a pastor and his wife on a Friendly Planet tour of Israel. About half way through the tour, I fell and broke my ankle. Friendly Planet and their associates really went out of their way to take care of me and to coordinate my care in Israel and to orchestrate my trip home. I highly recommend taking any tour arranged by Friendly Planet and, also, purchasing the very reasonable trip insurance.
