Since I have married a Filipina and found a new life and business partner, I have moved this content to the Travel Tours and Packages in the Philippines page, where you will find the latest info. I am excited to travel around the country with my wife, expanding the tours we offer, which mostly she will be managing.
Whether you explore this country of 7,107 islands by foot, taxi, bus or boat, I have done so by motorbike and am compiling info on all the wonderful little jewels I have come across. Click on the orange text links in the picture above or alphabetically below to find details of specific islands or areas. For clarity, I like to use the free app maps.me, which does not require an internet connection but only gps.
For my boat tours business I have begun to explore the rest of the Philippines. I prefer off the beaten path, nature and away from touristy areas, but I will also stay for at least a month in the larger towns, so expect a lot of information on them as well. Chill places to hang out and so forth. And if we get along, I might just have room on my motorised tricycle for you! Currently exploring the Visayas.
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.
