This is our third trip with Friendly Planet and definitely will not be our last. There are no surprises here. Everything was better than expected. Our guides and all of the supporting staff was magnificent. In my observation, all of the staff went out of their way to please everyone in the group! Wow what service and price! I love Friendly Planet!

This was the best trip ever. The guides were all wonderful, especially Patricia in Patagonia who made sure that we saw all of the flora and fauna in the region. Iguazu Falls, the glaciers, scenery, and boat rides were spectacular. The food was also very special. All told, another great tour with Friendly Planet!

We really had a marvelous time in Egypt. I have told everyone about this tour. I kept thinking that there must be a catch for you to offer this package at such a wonderful price. There was no catch and I can't believe it! I have no idea how you are able to afford to offer such inexpensive packages. The food was great, the accommodations terrific and the sights amazing.

I got back recently from the Taj Mahal Express tour. Amazing trip at an incredible price. I will definitely use Friendly Planet again. Our tour guide in India, Vishal, was the best I've ever encountered on a group tour. He did a fantastic job and really went out of his way to ensure we had a great time.

“This was a trip of a lifetime and we had an awesome time! After every game drive, we thought how could they top that but the next game time would be just as fun. This was our first trip with Friendly Planet. We are extremely happy to find reasonable prices that gave us very nice hotels and tours. I will recommend Friendly Planet to my family and friends and have already started to look for our next tour to take with Friendly Planet.”

We had the time of our lives on your September Taj Mahal + Mumbai Trip. No other place in the world can you see such a combination of beauty, history & diversity! From the elephant ride up to the Jaipur fortress, dawn at the Taj Mahal, visiting Gandhi's Memorial in Delhi, to the throbbing inner-city of Mumbai, it was a joy each & every moment! We are searching for our next Friendly Planet holiday right now - Thanks again for a great tour at a super price.

The booking process was very easy. Friendly Planet provided many useful documents and information that made me feel at ease with booking the tour. The response time to emails was fast and the replies were helpful. Our tour guide, Gokhan Baydur, was beyond excellent. He was genuinely enthusiastic and passionate about his work and his country. He loved showing his country to us, which made us want to know more about it. He was very knowledgeable and presented the information very well during all of our tours. If we had any questions or wanted to know more about a specific topic, he was extremely approachable and informative. He also did his best in accommodating everyone's needs whether it was a dietary restriction or a physical restriction. In the end, he was not only a great tour guide, but someone I would truly consider a friend and hope to stay in touch with.

Two months ago, we took the Taste of Turkey tour, which we still enthusiastically talk about. It was truly spectacular thanks in great measure to our wonderful tour guide, Hakim. He was so thoroughly knowledgeable about both the ancient sites and modern Turkey that he kept us keenly interested in all we saw. We would be lucky to have him as our guide on any future tours.
