    Great Day!!
    First of all it was a driver a tour guide ( very knowledgeable) and the two of us. Essentially it was a private tour. The first part of the tour consisted of a lot of driving to see monkeys and chocolate hills. But the highlight of the tour was a wonderful lunch on a boat down the river. GREAT EXPERIENCE!!! WORTH THE MONEY!!

    Bohol and Panglao Island is a must see location while in the Philippines.
    We did the Bohol Countryside tour which included Chocolate Hills, Loboc River Cruise, Tarsier Conservatory, Blood Pact, Baclayon Church, Man-Made Forest and XZootic Snakes and Butterflies. These tours were so cool to see to see these attractions. Chocolate Hills and Tarsiers were the highlights of the trip. We stayed in Panglao Island and did island hopping in Balicasag and Virgin Island. Some of the best snorkeling for fish and coral I've ever seen. Rented a scooter for 3 days to get around the island and explore. Alona Beach was a little Boracay (less people and traffic). I prefer this setting better as I hate crowds.

    Don’t pass this tour up!’
    This was an amazing experience, we loved every minute of this tour. Jonas and our driver were excellent hosts. They shared so much Philippine history and culture with us. The canoe trip was awesome!!! Definitely worth the drive!

    A must do while you are Panglao- Tagbilaran area
    100% recommend! This trip was a last minute thing with my wife and I. It was a great experience. Although, Our hotel is not on their list for pick up. They still set up a pick up time. Kuya Elmer and Kuya Dandan arrived at our hotel 10 mins earlier to pick us up. Kuya Elmer (tour guide) is very knowledge able of the area and its History. Him and Kuya dandan are very accomodating and helpful in ensuring that my wife and enjoyed our tour. Kuya Elmer also introduce us to the Manmade Forest and the Blood compact site. We enjoyed all the locations that was offered. We even get to do the ATV ride to the Chocolate hills. This is optional and we are glad that we did it!! Since it is a private tour, we didnt have to wait for "the group" to get done. We are at our leisure to look at the sites and souvenir shop. Loboc River cruise was very enjoyable. Make sure that you bring a mask and some cash. The drinks (aside from water) are not included in the ticket. It is also great to tip the performers during the cruise. 100% recommended this trip!!

    Tour Guide Guru!
    Richard, our guide, was probably the best tour guide we have ever interacted with. He was knowledgeable about the areas, the history, landmarks, and culture. Absolute must for anyone venturing to that area and want to be enlightened.

    Excellent tour, wonderful guides and driver
    We had 2 private tours from Cebu, one to the Oslob whale sharks with Tyler and Ian and a half day city tour with Ramon. Both were wonderful and the tour guides and driver were outstanding. Highly recommend a guide as they will protect you and translate as required. We saw numerous historic sites and were even able to request vegetarian food (as our tummies were a little fragile). These tours were a definite highlight of our Philippines experience, made all the better by the wonderful, caring staff.

    Busy day with a good lunch but negotiate the sequence
    Our trip was a shared one , we knew this and pick up was on time, Guide gave short introduction at each stop then group had a set time before we moved on. Lunch was initially to be very early 11.30 am but we alll agreed to make the river cruise and lunch last stop after chocolate hills. Viewpoint needs 200 plus steps so not for the lesss mobile. Pity that quad bikes below disturb peace of site. Excellent buffet lunch and river trip with music and bankside cultural show. Good value and varied if you can spare a day off the beach.

    Good tour
    I enjoyed the tour so much I would go back and do it again, everyone was very nice and seemed to love their work, the chocolate hills were so beautiful like a fairytale but since it wasn't summer they were green like the colour of the 200 peso note.

    No tour guide!
    Driver was on time, but when we got to the island (after 5 hours of travel), we found out that there is no tour guide and that the driver does not speak English well. They were nice, but we wanted to understand the history and learn more, rather than just have a driver to take us to the sites. It's an expensive trip and when we called the company, they just said: "Your trip does not includes a guide. you can pay extra for that". Choice a different company!

    U would ask for more.. In Corregidor!
    Booked our trip through Klook ang it's super easy! Just folow the instructions and u are good to go! The place us majestic and full of knowledge about the history of what transpired in Corregidor. All guests will be taken into a Tram Bus with a designated tour guide! My suggestion is to wear comfortabl clothes and keep yourself hydrated.. The views were spectacular and the historical details will leave you at awe. This is a worthy trip but the lunch food can be improved. We had Mae as our tour guide and she is enthusiastic in explaining things and even showed us some photos of what the structures looked like before.

    amazing views
    we rented a car and driver for the day 2000 pesos for return trip to bikutan. traffic was disgusting as usual, but worth it on arrival. loved the taal culdera beautiful views. the reptile show was not good, the python and croc were totally drugged which was cruel, food and drinks were on sale. majestic old Spanish fort, its worth going, but it is crowded. avoid the week end.

    Historical Journey for WWII History Buffs
    Superb trip by Sun Cruises as it was well organized and very interesting. You get to touch and walk among history as the real feel of what it was like during WW!!. The food was good too only the seats on the ferry was not too comfortable so be prepared for a tight squeeze for those on the bigger side.

We felt like royalty on our private half day tour with our guide Jonas and our excellent driver. We didn't feel rushed and we were able to have a good look around Intramuros. We learnt some interesting history of the Philippines. Our guide Jonas was very personable and informative. It was great not having to queue or pay entrance fees. Jonas knew all the good places to go.

Eric was our guide and knew his stuff. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and professional and Carlo our driver was excellent. It’s a very interesting tour and we learned a lot about Manila during the war and the general history of the country. Highly recommended!

Amazing. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and easy going, she made the trip wonderful. We learned about the fascinating history of Manila and saw the important sites. We saw things we would never have seen on our own and heard a local perspective. The transport was modern, well kept and very punctual. Helped us for the rest of our trip too. Highly recommend.
