Taal Volcano, Manila Reviews

  • Aside from the Basilica, this has got to be the most interesting place to visit in the Taal area. We went to the volcano via the San Nicholas township tourism initiative. I have done both the rim tour and the sulfuric basin tour and I find the basin tour to be more challenging and far more rewarding. Don't be discourage by the hike, the guides have pack horses ready to save the day when you get winded ( for a modest price).

  • Ya best be in some kinda physical shape to make the hike. Don't ride on those poor ponies. And do get the face mask. It gets dusty. Also get water, lots of water for the hike up! Totally worth it!

  • A great trip. Make sure you start the climb early in the morning. I started at 7:30 and already hot. It’s about 4 km to the top, but well worth the hike. Make sure to take extra water and wear good walking shoes.

  • This place was incredibly beautiful. The hike is not too bad if you decide to hike rather than take the horses. I was surprised to see steam billowing from certain parts of the trail; this thing is definitely still a volcano. Great views and photo ops, especially at sunset. The night lights of Tagaytay across the lake were also an unexpected and striking addition to the already stunning panoramic vista. I highly recommend.

  • Gotta hustle! The volcano was awesome and worth the 500 for a small donkey like horse, the guide and horse walker will cost you another 500, people will ask you to buy stuff for your guide and horse walker on the way up also. It's all worth it though as you get great views. My guide said a little bit about the volcano at the top and that was about it, mainly in a hurry to get us back down, ignore that business. The boat ride over is good too, you will be asked to pay for the tiny ramp to get off the boat too, which is totally not needed. be ready to give tips to almost everyone you meet. Was a great day
