We were very satisfied with the organisation and with the activities that we have during the trip. The agency contact us several times before, to be sure about the meeting point and to give us all necessary tips. Our super hosting and friendly guide Mark was waiting for us in the morning . There is no loosing of the time :) the main boat has one more smaller boat for faster transport on crowded spots n where the water is shallow. The adventure starts with the dolphins watching (don’t expect to see them every time) but you can enjoy in different activities as cruising with the boat on the sea, snorkelling in amazing crystal clear sea with the turtles at Balicasag Island and finally enjoying the beauty of Virgin Islands. (This spots are very popular, so expect lots of people, but with the great company on the boat and good guide you will have great time)

Jira was fantastic! Really friendly and taught us a lot. The tarsier sanctuary was amazing and definitely a highlight. The chocolate hills ATV tour is now 1100 peso per person if you’d like to do an hour- it was a very bumpy course and probably not for beginners. Loboc river you could decide between a kayak or SUP - both options were great and a relaxing way to the end long day.

Had a great and friendly guide. Also had enough time to stay everywhere so that we could see what we needed to see. The lunch at Loboc river was also very good, I think everyone would like it. All in all it's obviously a very touristy and relaxing experience, so if that's your thing then you should go on this day trip.

This tour is amazing, you can see all of the locals colors of the Phillipines with an amazing guide ! Thank’s for this day Fronny ! 🥰
