Our tour guide Alvin was the best. He helped us take our beautiful photos, carried our stuff and gave us a lot of insight about the islands. I would really recommend the private tour, it avoids crowds and you get a more tailored experience. The food was amazing and well presented, it was unfortunate that we couldn’t finish it all as there was only 4 of us. If you can only do one tour, make sure it’s Tour A - lots of activities and beautiful sights. I would recommend to bring a lot of sunscreen and sun safe accessories as you can easily burn without noticing because you are having a lot of fun.

The most beautiful tour I have been on In the Philippines. Would for sure do it again. Even though it was raining at times the sun came out at perfect times.

I loved this tour. Such an amazing part of the world to explore. Our guides Jason & Nathan were excellent as were the whole crew.

Trip was great. Went a lot longer than I expected. The guys in the boat avoided crowds. Very pleased.

Really love taking the kayaks into the big lagoon.
