Taal Lake, Tagaytay Reviews

  • It was a scary boat ride going to the volcano due to strong wind but we reached safely. The horses that are for rent look frail, not a difficult hike. My 7 yr old nephew reached the crater with no sweat 😝 the view is breath taking! Amazing nature!

  • Beautiful fresh Water lake. It's famous lake product is Tilapia fish. So tasty and there isn't any hints of soil taste that even people who doesn't like fish couldn't resist it after the first taste.

  • Really fell in loved with this place TAGAYTAY the view so captivating and awesome. Make it number one next destination in your vacation list.

  • Beautiful place don't miss it

  • This is the only place we didn't like during our trip to Philippines. Everything there is too expensive, comparing to another islands. We understand that local people need to survive somehow and tourists are their main income , but what we've seen was too much. First you need to rent a boat to get to the foot of the volcano, then you can pay for the horse riding or go hiking to the top. The place is too crowded, when you go hiking, all the time you must watch out and give way to the horses carrying tourists on their backs. By the way, if you decide to pay for the horse riding, be ready that you'll not be able to ride by yourself - the guide will be sitting behind you and holding reins. When you get on the top the only thing you can do there is to take pictures or maybe have a drink. You can't get closer to the lake, perhaps of safety reasons. So in total it's boring. No doubt, the views are breathtaking but it's not worth efforts and money you've put.
