What people are saying about Cebu

A great experience and professional tour. Everything went great. We were picked up from the hotel on time at 3am. Our driver Joseph was just great! He was friendly, fun, provided us with a lot of information about Cebu and the tour and just took care of everything throughout the tour. I would recommend everyone to rent an underwater camera on site. The boatswain will then take beautiful photos of you while you are in the water. With us there were 200 photos. You only have to borrow the camera for € 9, then the photos will be transferred to your cell phone. Otherwise you can also borrow everything very cheaply on site. Life jacket and diving goggles are included. Everyone was very friendly and helpful throughout the tour. It was a very nice and special experience.

It was an amazing day!! To see the Tarisers and then the lovely relaxing lunch cruise on the river followed by the stunning Chocolate hills…a day to remember!!! But the other highlight of the day was our wonderful wonderful guide Laurean ….she was just a lovely caring and informative guide …. Made our day extra special

The car was comfortable even though it was a 3/4hours drive to each side. Totally worth it! Our driver was very nice and the people from the boat as well! The shark-wales are amazing!! I would advice to bring a go-pro to be able to register the swim with the whale-sharks with good quality!

Great day seeing the sites of Bohol. The chocolate hills were impressive, lunch cruise was great, seeing the tiniest “not monkey” primate was probably once in a life time thing and visiting some of the oldest churches in Bohol was cool! Good guide and safe trip so overall a great day!

Magical experience. It’s great that proceeds go to the community which lacks other means of income. Sad that tourist like me polute the waters but it does save the turtles and sardines. Also tourism helps build schools, hospitals and roads.
