          Amazing trip with the best guide
          My family and I had a truly unforgettable and unique adventure in Sagada, Banaue and Batad. This is not our usual type of trip, so we’re grateful we booked through Vagabond Pinas and had Brayan as our guide the whole time. He helped and guided us all the way.. down to even the littlest things! He, along with our driver and all other local guides, were very accommodating and knowledgeable. It was amazing to see all the sights of Sagada and Ifugao. I would recommend Vagabond Pinas and this itinerary to all my friends! I can’t wait to book another adventure with them.

          Wonderful and unforgettable experience
          We had a 5-day private family tour visiting Sagada/Banaue/Batad and it was a memorable experience. It was great to see and hike the magnificent rice terraces. Brayan was an excellent tour guide - very knowledgeable about the areas and their history. He was especially considerate and went out of his way to help those in our group who found some of the hikes challenging. I would highly recommend this tour if you want to experience another aspect of the Philippines. The hikes were immersive and the views of the rice terraces (esp in Batad) were simply breathtaking. Thanks to Brayan for guiding us on this amazing tour.

          Great hiking tours - beautiful landscapes- Brayan was a great guide
          We had a great trip with our tour guide Brayan. It was good to see another side of the Philippines rather than our usual mix of city and beach. The area around Sagada and especially the Banaue/Batad was really beautiful and we loved the hikes we did. Brayan was extremely nice, knowledgeable and always helpful to those in our group who needed a bit of help during the hikes. Great experience- recommended for anyone that enjoys nature, nice landscapes and doesn’t mind a bit of physical activity!

          Phenomenal tour and Philippine power from our tour of the Batad rice terraces with our perfect guide Jonathan
          We had a superb trip to the UNESCO Batad rice terraces in the Philippines. Our host Jonathan was truly exceptional and the comfortable transfer from Manila made the expedition so easy

          A great way to start our Philippines trip 😍
          We had a wonderful time travelling in the Philippines (in Sagada, Batad and Banque) - everything was greatly organized and the communication smooth. Special thanks to Edmon our driver for his kindness and his great advices/info during the trip ! Definitely recommend.

          You won't regret!!
          The trip really gave us a very indepth exposure of the mountain province, which go beyond normal sightseeing. It also allow us to have a better understanding of the people and culture. The view of the rice fields are just gorgerous. The hiking/ caving part could be phsyically challenging to us but the guides have been very caring and supportive to tailor the experience to our levels. We are grateful that we have made it!!

          Team Atanoso goes to Sagada
          We wanted to see and experience Sagada but I know that it will be hard to do a DIY trip so, thru a referral, I decided to inquire to Vagabond Pinas for a tour package and Sir JP kindly prepared a tour wherein a family of four with 2 young kids will be able to enjoy at a very reasonable price. Vagabond Pinas' driver Kuya Bong and guide Sir Brayan fetched us from our house earlier than our schedule so we were able to arrive earlier than expected to our inn and was able to rest before we had our hiking activity. Sir brayan, our guide, was very helpful, and was always ready to lend a hand and encouraging words as we hiked the mountainous path up to see the Hanging coffins and see the beauty of the Sagada rice terraces and the Bomod-ok Falls. Thanks to Vagabond Pinas, our Sagada experience was truly an enjoyable, hassle free and truly a memorable experience for us.

          Excellent adventure-highly recommend
          Myself and husband loved our 5 day trip. JP and his team looked after us very well and the communication pre-trip was very clear. Edmon was our main tour guide and he was excellent throughout! He was very informative and good fun to be with. The itinerary is well planned and we were kept busy without feeling overly exerted. Edmon also adapted our trip to meet our needs including caving in Sagada-which we loved! Jonathan was our tour guide in Batad-he was also fabulous! He is very knowledgeable and was very patient with us whilst trekking and visiting the waterfall. All of the people we met during our trip were welcoming and I will remember this adventure fondly as it was filled with so much happiness and laughter. Thankyou so much for an amazing adventure

          Sunrise at the Playground of the Gods
          We did our two day trek up Mt. Pulag with JP. As I look back on my overall trip in the Philippines, the trek was easily the most memorable and perhaps life changing. The trip was filled with wonder, hardships, laughter, and gratitude. Seeing the stars late at night, and then witnessing the sunrise on the top of the mountain are moments I'll cherish for life. My partner told me that I would enjoy JP as a person and she was right. His passion to understand and share his culture with people shows. He is accomodating, communicative, and knows how to have fun. He isn't just a tour guide to us, he is a friend and role model too. Till next time.

          Overall good experience but better go for 2 days tour because 5 days seems a bit tiring and you won't be able to enjoy muc.

          Incredible trip and wonderful guide
          The itinerary: Caving, hiking, culture, and all while surrounded by stunning views, this was really an amazing experience, and something we certainly couldn't have found anywhere else. All our activities and their order was really well thought out, we never felt rushed or like too much or too little was packed into each day. The rice terraces look gorgeous in pictures, but it's really something else to see them in person. Our guide: Bryan was thoughtful, knowledgeable, and patient - he always made sure things went smoothly and was such a nice person to have with us. Where we stayed: each of the places we stayed had good food, were very clean, and were in beautiful locations. Some were more simple and stripped back, but imo it's worth sacrificing some creature comforts for the experience! Thank you Vagabondpinas for a trip my boyfriend and I will always remember.

          Mt. Pulag Trek to the Gods
          Another unforgettable adventure for a lifetime. This is my first venture to Mt. Pulag and my second trek with Vagabond Pinas. Jp is always so accommodating and helpful, works without hesitation around my skill level and makes sure we are fully prepared. He truly shapes the experience to you while also creating a journey worthwhile. Mt. Pulag was certainly the toughest hike I have had so far, but Vagabond was a major part in helping me conquer it and witness the breathtaking sea of clouds. I encourage all who visit the Philippines to take at least one trek with Vagabond. Thank you for guiding me again to discovering the many parts of home, of Pilipinas! Till the next journey 🤘 #dahandahan

          Wonderful 5-day trip in Sagada-Banaue-Batad
          JP, tour coordinator/guide/driver extraordinaire, created the perfect adventure for me. A great mix of hiking through the rice terraces, swimming in waterfalls, learning about the local culture, trying local transportation, and relaxing while admiring the beautiful scenery. Jp is very welcoming and knowledgeable. He made this a trip of a lifetime. The local guides were also fantastic, particularly Jonathan from Banaue. Jp also knows the best restaurants to try the delicious local cuisine. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. Contact Vagabondpinas for your Philippines adventure, you will not be disappointed. Thanks again Jp and hope to travel with Vagabondpinas very soon!

        We spent a great time hiking the rice terraces around Banaue for 3 days. Our guide June Ognayon (you find him on Facebook looking for “Banaue Tour Guide - June Ognayon”) made the experience very special as he told us a lot about the local history, culture and tradition. It felt like travelling with a friend as we we talking so much with him. He shared valuable insights and we highly recommend to go on a tour with him. The scenery was just beautiful and we slept in two very nice homestays along the way. It was very insightful for us to see how the people in the northern Philippines live and we recommend this experience to every traveler!

        The tour started off on a good start with our tour guides showing up ahead of time with a comfy van for our 9h drive to Banaue. JP was friendly, gave some explanations on areas we visited and tips on food to try out. We had a good time and saw amazing views during our trip.

        JP and Geoffrey kept us safe during our hikes :-) This is not a beginner's hike but definitely worth it!!
        and our drivers kept us safe throughout the zigzagging roads. It is one of those hikes where the views are breathtaking and you can't find that in many places. I definitely recommend it!

        Thank you Vagabondpinas for the great tour!

        Everything was well taken care of, great staff all along and good drivers. A private minivan and friendly staff at the hotel and tour. The guide knew his way around and the views there are amazing.

        I had to catch a flight so they could change the tour a bit to fit my schedule.

        Some rooms in the hotel have shared toioet/shower but good view, some rooms have city view and private bathroom.

        5/5 would use JP’s services again

        By far the best tour we had in the Philippines. My husband and I are overjoyed with JP’s drive from Manila to Batad Rice Terraces. It was very considerate of him to let us know what to pack the day prior and what to expect the next 3 days.
        We started our ride early and stopped for food and stretching throughout.
        The first homestead had a beautiful view with amazing food. I recommend trying the special adobo for dinner.
        After a night’s stay, we enjoyed breakfast with a view, the local tour guide, Johnathan, made our way up to Batad. We had 2 view point stops where Johnathan gave us a brief history of the terraces and culture. When we got to Batad, there was a short hike to our overnight stay to prep and started our walk through the fields.
        It was a hard walk for me as I’m overweight but JP and Jonathan were patient and encouraging. My husband went down to swim by the waterfall and loved it. From there we started our trek back, stayed the night and drove back to Manila.

        I just returned from my first time ever to the Philippines and my favorite part of the trip was visiting the Banaue-Batad rice terraces with JP and the Vagabond Pinas team. For a Filipina American like me, it was really meaningful to see these ancient terraces carved into the mountains by the ancestors and still in use today. My husband and I were traveling with friends, and I’m not sure we would have gotten the same experience if we tried to do it on our own. But JP was very knowledgeable and he and Jun were great guides on the long hike around the Batad rice terrace - which is not an easy one! but so worth the effort and the sore legs. They also arranged our home stays, and we were happy to have nice clean beds and hot delicious Filipino meals. The rooftop Jeepney ride to Batad gave us breathtaking views. And the van ride back to and from Manila was nice and comfy, with a couple much needed stops and Max’s and Jollibee for lunch. ;P Truly an amazing experience of the Philippines that I will never forget.

        I can’t recommend this tour enough. It’s was such an amazing experience. We were pick up from our hotel by our driver Emmanuel. Who was so lovely and took good care of us for the long drive up to Banaue and explain bit of local information to us along the way. On arrival in Banaue he took us to some beautiful view point and explain about the local area. We stayed at the most beautiful Homestead, ( Banaue Homestead) with the lovely Beatrice, who instantly made us feel at home and cook us a beautiful dinner and breakfast. We meet our lovely local guide Jonathan who would be bringing us on the trek and explains all about the rice fields and local culture. Banaue itself was beautiful, but the next day we got a bus ride to the drop off point. Make sure to ride up top and then hiked a short distance to our Batad homestead. Batad itself was amazing and breathtaking. Jonathan took us around the rice terrace field and down the many steps to the beautiful waterfall for a swim. Overall this was one of the best tours I have ever done and it’s so lovely to see such a beautiful culture and area. Thanks you so much to the whole Vangabondpin team but most expecially to Jonathan and Emmanuel who took such amazing care off us.

        This is a fantastic tour. Our driver for the eight hour plus drive from Manila was very friendly and helpful. Our guide was excellent - he took us round the rice paddies and through the little villages, which was an amazing experience. The scenery up this way is outstanding. We highly recommend this company for this, or any other, tour they offer.

        This trip was amazing. Our driver was Anthony, he was friendly, helpful and got us to Banaue and back safely. Once at Banaue we stayed in the Banaue Homestay. The accommodation is basic but very clean and the hospitality is out of this world.
        Our local guide was Kenneth and he was amazing. He was knowledgeable, patient, kind and had a nice sense of humor. He is native to the area and we were honored to learn from him.
        This was the trip of a lifetime.

        This trip was an absolute experience of a lifetime! Vagabondpinas provided me and my wife with an amazing experience in the mountain towns of Banaue and Batad. Their entire team was nothing but professional and courteous throughout the entire trip. They were so warm and welcoming to us foreigners as we came in to experience their lives and culture. JP, Jay, Marvin, Beatrice, Brian, John and Mike were all amazing, and they will ensure that you enjoy every second of your trip.

        JP and Jay were exactly on time when meeting us at our hotel to pick us up for our trip, and Jay ensured we were comfortable for the entire ride from Manila to Banaue (9 hours with stops). Once we arrived at our homestay in Banaue, we were warmly welcomed by Beatrice and her family. They showed us to our room which was very comfy and had its own private bathroom. Marvin (our guide) met us that evening to go over the plan for the next morning. The next morning we were met by Marvin, Jay and Mike for our Jeepney ride to Batad junction. The ride was absolutely stunning! Be sure to ride on top! Once we arrived to the junction, Marvin guided us on the hike to Batad and our next homestay. The hike through the rice terraces of Batad was beautiful and serene. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience! You will also have a chance to hike to Tappiya falls and you should not pass up this opportunity! It’s a tedious hike but well worth it!

        Overall, we had an amazing experience with the Vagabondpinas team and couldn’t recommend them more to anyone looking to experience the culture of the rice terraces.

        We are very grateful to have had Vagabond Pinas as our tour guide on our Banaue- Batad trip. They offered comfortable and safe transportation, good accommodation with the best views, some history and stories on the rice terraces and its people, and an overall stress free trip.

        We enjoyed the whole trip and are still awed with the beauty and culture of the rice terraces. It was more than we expected. Thank you Vagabond Pinas for making this experience extra personal, memorable and comfortable. It was truly an unforgettable and highly recommended adventure!💯🙌 We also very much appreciated their extra patience, care and guidance towards us as we are not a fit couple, and going through some of those rocky and narrow tracks was a bit of a challenge. 😄 It was definitely an amazing adventure! And the rooftop jeepney ride was a great experience and a must! 👍👍
