    Fernando is an excellent guide and extremely knowledgeable. He taught my family and I so many amazing facts about the places we visited and The Philippines. I highly recommend him to anyone; especially history buffs!

    The tour was great and perfect for a day trip. Nori, our guide, was well versed, spoke multiple languages, and was truly a pleasure to listen to. Nori catered the trip to our needs and the current “climate”. It was a quiet day considering the Filipino election so we were able to see more than expected. Some places were closed due to the pandemic, but Nori still lets us take pics and such. There was enough free time at the various stops to take pics, where Nori would offer to take family pics. Transportation was more than adequate and our driver was very good. They all were very accommodating and I would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking to see Taal, Tagaytay, and the highlights of Manila.

    It was an interesting trip trekking up the Taal Volcano on a horse and the boat ride along the island. The view on top the crater is very nice.

    I went on the Tagaytay Ridge in Manila with my guide, RJ (Rolando). I have gone to many tours in the past and this was easily the best tour guide I've ever met. He was fun, engaging, knowledgeable, and he went above and beyond his responsibilities. He was the highlight of my travel. The driver, Oswald, was also excellent and very professional.

    We were extremely disappointed as we were not taken to see the majority of the key sights outlined for the afternoon program in the intramurros, they simply drove us around, told us everything was closed (even though when we checked on the internet afterwards everything was open) and took us back to the hotel early. When we wrote to them by email regarding this there was no response. Deeply disappointing.

    We enjoyed our trip for the sheer beauty of the volcano and its surroundings. The views from the People's Park were fantastic although at times it was a bit hazy. The venue of the lunch was ideal for viewing the volcano and the lake. A perfect point for taking photos. Although the lunch was included in the price, the guide made us pay tips to the waiters. The guide was very knowledgeable and patient and had a good sense of humour. He went out of the way to show us an aerial view of the city of Manila from the roof top of the Bay leaf hotel . A very interesting trip overall.

    We rented a van through the sightseeing tour for the day or actually for 2 days. We had 6 of us in the travelling party & wanted to show some of the party the Tagaytay sights. We stopped for Lunch & then proceeded to have a driver tour of the Tagaytay region. It is well worth the effort to travel here. Its about 90 minutes from Makati. The views of the lake & volcanos are spectacular. The views as you drive down the side of the mountain are amazing. We returned via Cavite & it was a great route to take with exceptional 'photo opportunity' spots along the way. Well worth the effort & a nice break from the craziness that is Manila Metro.
