If you are organising a boat tour with people you do not know, to ensure that everything runs smoothly, it is a good idea to find out something about your potential tour companions to determine how compatible you are.
Common problems might be:
some like to start their day slowly and groggily with a long cup of coffee, while others snap out of bed at the crack of dawn and can’t wait to get going
some like to squeeze in as many sites as possible, hurrying to the next one, while others like to lounge around and enjoy the sites, more concerned about a relaxed vacation
To help you find out something about the persons requesting to join your tour, you can ask for and surf their facebook wall to see their types of posts and comments, or you can try this online personality compatibility test. You could email them the questions in the form and fill in their answers next to yours, and study the results at the bottom. To help you email them the questions you can copy/paste them from the webpage or download them here. In case it opens in your browser, you can download the zip file instead.
Note that the person you are emailing with may seem wonderful, but later you find out you do not get along with their partner or other friends, so you may request to test all of them separately.
This is a must to do!!Super ultimate tour is the best with Kayangan and barracuda lake, twin lagoons (my favorite), coral garden (blue fabulous coral) were the best. It’s really worth it to pay for private tour (3500 to 4000 PHP). You will also have to pay for entrance fees (150 to 200PHP by location) and eventually shopping at the market - must do (count 300 for 2 for fish, pork, fruits and vegetables, water).
I was looking for a personalized excursion to the beautiful Gulf of Bacuit.Seeing the comments, I contacted Mel.Very responsive, very efficient and perfect organization.The flight attendants were very friendly and very helpful.And I'm not even talking about the meal on board...a marvel.In all fairness, this excursion will remain an excellent memory and I cannot recommend Mel and his team highly enough.A big thank-you.
This tour went well above all our expectations! I couldn't recommend this enough! The boat crew, captain and tour guide were nothing but amazing, everyone was so kind, helpful and friendly. The crew knew the best spots to visit that weren't overcrowded with tourists, 3 times we were lucky enough to have whole islands to ourselves! It was my partner's birthday while away and everything went above and beyond, bonfire, cake, birthday card, singing and celebrating with us.If you love camping this is definitely a tout you should do, it has been the highlight of our trip!!
We booked a 4 days/3 nights private boat trip from Coron to Sibaltan. The organization went very well from the beginning, the owner answered to all my questions, and we were able to choose which islands to visit and where to sleep. The first night we slept in a bungalow in Banana Island, the second we camped in Araw beach and the last we slept in a seafront bungalow builded on a tree in Pical on Iloc Island.The islands in that area are the most beautiful islands I have ever seen, with clear water, lots of coral reef and fishes to see, white sand and almost deserted. The crew was very friendly and polite and they organize every single meal and for camping they give you a tent which was just perfect! This was our highlight in our 2 weeks in the Philippines and I wish I had booked a longer trip. A private trip gives you the freedom to decide where and when to go.
