If this is your first time to the country and you have the budget, we recommend you start at the custom private or group boat tours we offer in Palawan, voted the best island in the world three times in a row.
Some info about the Philippines
The Philippines is made up of more than 7,000 paradise beach islands, it is a Christian nation with English as one of the official languages, its people are sweet, who sweep their streets every morning, all of which make this country an excellent tourist destination. But because it has so many islands spread out over a vast area, it is simply too big to see all the best spots during your average two week vacation, and should be treated as multiple countries which need to be explored over several visits. Otherwise you end up spending too much of your time on transportation, you miss too many jewels in adjoining areas, and your trip is too hectic to slow down and really enjoy the wonderful, laid back nature of the people and the serene, picturesque places.
At the moment we are exploring the Visayas and have explored and researched many places we have not had a chance to add below, so you can go ahead and contact us and we will be happy to help you any way we can. We love to explore nature and there is a ton to see in this beautiful country.
Because the Philippines is so big and spread out over more than 7,000 islands, it needs to be visited several times if you have something like only two weeks of vacation time. So the best way to see the most is by a custom tour taking you from one place to another, such as from Cebu to Bohol, then Negros and Panay islands, ending in Boracay. We can arrange a tour guide, van or motorbike rental and accommodation. Hope to hear from you!
We booked the 3 day 2 night expedition, from Coron to Sibaltan.First of all the booking part was really simple. I organized this trip to the Philippines last minute for my family (my parents and my uncles) but Karel answered all my questions very quickly and really made everything easier for me. It was an incredible experience. Albert, our tour leader, is a wonderful guy, always smiling and ready to help us. They assisted us in everything and really took care of making everything go smoothly. The accommodation on the islands is as spartan as you expect but the location of each hut alone is worth the trip. The wonder of nature was then added to the goodness of cuisine. It's really difficult to argue how you can cook all that goodness on a boat.If you are looking for an authentic experience, in contact with nature, off the beaten track, this company's private expedition is certainly for you.
What an unforgettable experience! We did a two night (3 day) island hopping tour from Sibaltan to Coron. Everything was so well organized and the boat crew were amazing and really made sure we had a great time. The accommodation was rustic, but added to the authentic experience of the Philippines. Karel always responded to any queries we had promptly. Our boatman, Albert, was the most amazing chef and we enjoyed every meal. The crew taught the kids how to fish with a line which was their highlight of the trip. They took us to the most unbelievable snorkelling spots along the way. Would highly recommend this trip.
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 stunning Bacuit Gulf.Based on the comments, I contacted Mel.Very responsive, very efficient and perfect organization.The on-board staff 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!!
