Overview
Discover Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park on a full-day tour that includes an underground river cruise and lunch, with the option to add an exciting caving and ziplining experience. Including door-to-door transport from hotels in downtown Puerto Princesa, this underground river tour takes the hassle out of exploring a fascinating landscape of caves, forests, and sea coast.
Highlights
  • See native wildlife on an underground river day trip from Puerto Princesa
  • Choose between shared and private tours
  • Includes lunch and hotel transfers
  • Try caving and ziplining with an optional upgrade
What to Expect
From your hotel in downtown Puerto Princesa you’ll be transported to Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, pausing for views of Ulugan Bay along the way. After arriving at Sabang Wharf, continue to the mouth of the cave by boat, watching for the monitor lizards, monkeys, snakes, and other wildlife that thrive within the protected national park. Then you’ll enter the underground river on a paddle boat, traveling into a shadowy passageway with rock formations on every side. After you re-emerge into the sunshine, visit a Sabang restaurant for an included lunch of Filipino cuisine, served just outside the national park. If you’ve booked the spelunking and ziplining option, you’ll spend the afternoon climbing, scrambling, and soaring through the air before returning to your Puerto Princesa hotel.

Hello there! I’m sorry to learn about your experience with our company. This is certainly not the type we want our guests to have. Allow me to address some of your concerns about your trip: 1. We were not aware that you and your wife are celebrating your 25th anniversary; had we known this we may have been able to make your trip more memorable - a romantic dinner for 2 would have been nice. We can arrange this as long as we are aware that you’re celebrating something; you can read these on the other reviews that we received. 2. As long as there is no advice from local authorities, we tag all tours as a GO. However, this may change at the last minute due to the weather conditions. If you are unaware, the weather changes constantly, (and is very unpredictable) and since most of the activities that we offer involves a boat ride, we’d have to abide by the Coast Guard if they issue a NO-SAIL POLICY. 3. We normally advise guests of any changes in their tour on the same day - soemtimes guests are already on the location and we’d have to make them go back. Lucky for you that we were advised a night before that the tour will be cancelled the next morning. We informed you immediately so you can make other plans. Plus, most guests that we handled would know that whenever a tour is cancelled, we offer alternative activities, reschedules, or a full refund. You can verify this on the previous reviews that we received. 4. During the course of trip, one may find him/herself hounded by ambulant vendors onsite. You can politely decline them if you do not wish to buy anything. Also, our tour guides would at times offer other activities available at the destination as support to the local communities operating their own Community-based Sustainable Tourism (CBST) site. Puerto Princesa City has a lot of these CBSTs and they offer attractions and activities that will complement what you are already signed up for the day. 5. I do not know how you were able to find another tour company that offered the same tour the just got cancelled. Nevertheless, I am happy for you and that you were also able to pay half the price for it. TripAdvisor is a great avenue in providing experiences to travelers around the world. We welcome all feedback as by sharing your experience with our service, we will be able to know our strenghts and our areas that needs improvement. Happy travels

Overall the tour was a great experience,however getting to underground water cave was a bit a of work. I would recommend the tour for the price you are paying. Group tour is a lot cheaper compare to private tour and luckily we did not book a private tour, so it was worth it for

We got picked on on time, conveniently at our air bnb. Echo was a great guide, very enthusiastic and funny. Transport, lunch and the tours were all organised and worked out smoothly. We can recommend doing the zipline as well. You get to climb through a cave until you reach the

The caves are indeed beautiful and our tour guide, Ecco, was amazing. He was very knowledgable and friendly. However, I don't think it was worth the extremely uncomfortable ride from Puerto Princesa. Be aware that you will be cramped up in a minibus filled with other tourists,

Hi, ivonnes75, Thank you for your feedback about your Underground River Tour. We are happy to know that you enjoyed the activity and that your tour guide has been knowledgeable and friendly - it is one of the strengths of this activity. On the other hand, we regret that the transport to and from Sabang have been uncomfortable.

Breathtaking. Absolutely beautiful and so much fun. It was so much more than we expected. The staff are so friendly and organized. The zipline was so much fun. We loved every minute of it. I would recommend to travel light. Don't carry too much stuff in a bag or backpack.
