From Manila: Taal Volcano Island and Pagsanjan Falls Tour

1. From Manila: Taal Volcano Island and Pagsanjan Falls Tour

Following pickup from your hotel in Manila, head straight to the Pagsanjan Falls on a 2.5-hour drive south. From there, your driver will assist you in getting to the paddle raft, which will be manned by two local guides. Experience a multiple-rapid adventure as you continue toward the falls. Swim to the cave that lies within the magnificent Pagsanjan Falls, feeling refreshed by the cold water. Set off on another two-hour drive over to the Taal Volcano ridge in Tagaytay City for the Taal Volcano eruption sightseeing tour. Taal Volcano suddenly erupted at 2:36 PM on Sunday, January 12, 2020, forcing all to flee from the island. For the next 24 hours, ashes coming from the crater traveled all the way to Metro Manila and nearby areas as 150,000 people fled from their homes. Taal Volcano is now considered the most active volcano complex after this eruption. See the devastation firsthand and take in dramatic views of Taal Lake and the steaming Volcano Island from the ridges of Tagaytay City. Enjoy lunch (at your own expense) with a view of the whole lake, in the center of which steams the Taal Volcano, the Philippines smallest but most active volcano as of today.

From Manila: Majestic Pagsanjan Falls Adventure

2. From Manila: Majestic Pagsanjan Falls Adventure

"Shoot the Rapids" in dugout canoes and experience nature’s wonder. Drive two and a half hours south of Metro Manila through the countryside to beautiful town of Pagsanjan, Laguna. Be prepared to board a native banca (canoe) skillfully driven by two boatmen and maneuvered upstream through rocks and boulders amidst steep gorges and lush tropical vegetation. Your destination - Majestic Pagsanjan Falls. Take a swim or board a bamboo raft through the falls into a cave behind the veil of water. This is an exhilarating, spine-tingling, adrenaline-pumping, two hour boat ride from the Bumbungan River to Pagsanjan Falls whose booming water cascades down from high atop a cliff to the river 300 feet below. Your ride downstream is an exciting rush through the same rocks and boulders you passed on your way upriver.

The overall experience was amazing. I definitely recommend this tour to everyone. We did our own version of seeing Rizal Park in Manila and a tour with the horse carriage. We did not feel safe. We did Pagsanjan Falls the next day with a professional tour group and we were impressed with the whole service.

Great experience, the ride to the falls on the boat is just amazing. Guide and boatmen were very friendly and helpful. The only point that could improve is the lunch, mushroom soup was really nice, good spring rolls but the fish and the chicken were a very small portion and we didn't like the vegetables.

Great experience! Boatmen were very friendly. Tour guides were very nice. Would definitely do again. Long drive and boat ride though, so just be aware. 3 hr drive from Makati and 3 hr boat ride to the falls.

Our guide and driver were excellent. We gained a lot of history. The two gentlemen in charge of the canoes worked real hard. We appreciate the experience and really enjoyed the adventure.

Pagsanjan Falls was such a magical experience! Our tour guide Richard was lovely! We were well looked after the whole day! Highly recommend this tour, we had an amazing time!
