Customer testimonial: Paying hommage to Pyramids and Petra

Friendly Planet Travel’s Pyramids and Petra tour takes vacationers on a voyFP_Egypt.jpgage of discovery through the Pyramids of Egypt — the oldest and only Ancient Wonder of the World still standing — and the remarkable lost city of Petra in Jordan — one of the Seven New Ancient Wonders of the World. Friendly Planeteers get it all, in a single, inspired trip.


These two great sites are testimony to the perfection of design, architecture, engineering, and artistry of two glorious and ingenious cultures. Travelers can also take advantage of our Dead Sea extension, where they’ll enjoy the luxury of Moevenpick Resort & Spa Dead Sea, a five-star spa hotel at the shore of the world’s lowest body of water.
Two vacationers who just returned from our tour recently sent in a wonderful testimonial that I thought I’d share with you today. Here it is, verbatim as always.
"My husband & I just returned from the Pyramids & Petra tour. Words won’t do it justice, but I’ll give it a shot: The price–amazing! The guides–educated, accommodating, and excessively pleasant! The hotels–fantastic! The optional tours–A MUST! They were the best part of the whole trip, and a fantastic deal! The food–5 star! The touring coach–brand new, air-conditioned, & comfy! We were so thrilled with our experience with Friendly Planet, and all of their contractors, that we are already trying to decide which trip to take next! Thanks for providing such a top-notch experience with amazing people at such a fantastic price! We’ll be repeat clients!
– Amanda Poland, Front Royal, VA"

Customer testimonial: Walk where Jesus walked

Customer feedback is always important to us at Friendly Planet travel. But we received a customer testimonial over the weekend that simply tickled us pink, because it came from a group leader.
This particular group wanted a custom tour to Isreal with an added Egypt extension to the program. We managed to route the tour for them so they could also visit Jordan, while keeping the price at less than the best price they were quoted by other agencies for the Holy Land alone.
We worked with them to create an experience that I hope they’ll never forget, and judging from the feedback from the tour leader, they were a very happy group. Here it is, verbatim:
"The best travel tour I had so far. Friendly Planet made it so easy for all of us 53 tourist. The way they put it together with all the connections between countries, the hotels, buses and different tourist guides was so impressive and we felt pampered the whole time. We really had a grand time. Thank you very much for making it an experience of a lifetime.
– Emmanuel Lacson, Group Organizer, Hinsdale, Ill."
