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.

Amazing experience. Pick up transportation from Puerto Princesa to El Nido was smooth, driver picked us up from our hotel at the exact time given and got us there safely after a 5 hour drive. Tour guides Jason and Nathan on the Marielle boat really put an effort in making sure we enjoyed the tour. They were very friendly, accommodating and our family enjoyed our conversations with them.

Great tour visiting beautiful beaches and highlights of El Nido! Lunch was delicious and guides were friendly and professional! These tours and sightseeing spots are crowded so be prepared for that!

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.
