Instead of ringing a bell here every time Friendly Planet Travel makes headlines, I thought it would be easier to provide a wrap up post every week or so that highlights some of the recent press coverage we’ve gotten. Way to go, FPT team!

Imagine bustling outdoor markets, row upon row of brilliantly colorful cloth, the tinkling of bells in the early dawn, giggling school girls dressed in splendid saris, 100-pound sacks of pungent spices, fat baying cows, and towering architectural masterpieces that have been robbing travelers of their breath for more than 300 years. Imagine all of that, and maybe — just maybe — you’ll have an infinitesimal idea of India.
Our podcast with tour guide Rajeev Gulati earlier this week dug a little deeper into the wonders of India and Nepal. And yesterday, Budget Travel’s Real Deals featured our Best of India and Nepal tour.
Have a look at the article to see how the Best of India and Nepal stacked up to Budget Travel’s discerning eye.
For more information on our 15-day tour of many of India’s most important and significant cities, including New Delhi, Jaipur, Agra, Khajuraho, and Varanasi, as well as a trip to Nepal, at the foot of Mt. Everest, take a look at the Best of India and Nepal page on our Web site. And, if you book before June 26, it’ll only cost $2299, that’s a savings of $800 per couple.
I’m happy to report that our Taste of China vacation was published in today’s MSNBC Budget Travel column, so have a look!
For more information on Taste of China, have a look at our original blog post, or our recent podcast with Taste of China tour guide and Beijing resident, Sam Lui.
Budget Travel, which finds the best real travel deals every month, highlighted Friendly Planet Travel’s Western Mediterranean Cruise on their Web site today.
The writers at Budget Travel dig deep when looking for the real deals out there. They look for the hidden costs, fine print, and true dollar value of these trips. We already know our vacation packages are some of the best of the best, but it still feels good to see it in print.
