Taal Volcano, Tagaytay Reviews - Write a Review

  • This is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. Just.. Amazing. Climb onto the peak of the volcano and take a look inside at the hot lake that it has become. Stunning.

  • Bring your picnic lunch and head down with your tour guide to the bottom for a nice meal right by the water's edge, in perfect view of Taal Volcano. You can skip the boat ride to the volcano, but if you are visiting and may never come back why not. Other than a few wavy parts and splashes of waves, the person steering the boat gave us lots of plastic cover to keep us 'reasonably' dry. Enjoy!

  • The best place to have family bonding. Hiking, horseback riding and picture taking are the best activities. The best time to hike is around 6am.

  • Can't believe my friends and I climbed the vol at noon sharp under the hot weather in Philippines.😅anyway it was worth it! I didn't need any help like horse riding, so proud. 😁🇵🇭

  • Great place, great view. Very nice people helping you with mountain horses. Talk to them and learn how they really live here.
