Know More about this tour

You will be picked up from your hotels lobby located within Manila or Makati areas at 9am then we will head to the Taal volcano in Batangas province. The ride from Manila is around 1.5 hour and along the way, we will drive through a pleasant countryside.

Upon arrival at the lake you will board a motorized outrigger (Bangka) for 30 minutes to Taal volcano. Please bring your sunscreen, hat or mask as the journey is quite dusty and hot. It was an island formed by previous eruption, so there arent many tress for shade along the way.

You will be assisted by an island coordinator to trek up to a wide expanse hardened black lava landscape. The trek is a 0.25miles (400m) elevation for 1.2miles (2km). You will take approximately an hour to reach the top, to enjoy the incredible view from the top and the lake view.

After the tour, you will be transported back to the hotel safely.

    Overall, great experience.

    Cons:
    The driver was late to pick us up, even though our tour guide was one time...so we left a half hour after the specified time, which was a bit annoying. However, on the way home, the driver was very accommodating and we were able to stop and buy some fruit at roadside stands and stop for a CR bathroom break which is why we wanted a private tour in the first place. Since it was a rainy day, the waves on the lake were a bit rough I think they get rougher the later in the day, regardless of weather, so we got pretty wet on the way back. The boat had plastic tarps to cover our legs, but we still got pretty drenched. I would recommend bringing an extra set of clothes to change into for the car ride home.

    Also, Manila traffic was really bad, so we didn't get back into Makati until 6:15pm. So, with traffic, it was more like a full day than a half day trip.

    Pros:
    Our tour guide up Taal was very accommodating as well. We walked, and found it very easy, although it was raining lightly. Definitely did not find it difficult, and my parents are in their late 50s/early 60s. The horses may be faster, but they don't appear to be treated very well they have people hanging off their tails, and they are quite small. Our tour guide also helped us take a few group shots and pointed our several scenic spots for us to stop at. Lastly, we were very impressed with lunch! It was a full meal - we each received a full tilapia, along with rice, chicken adobo, and vegetables!
