          Exhilarating!!
          Canyoneering with our AWESOME guides, Jerome & Carlo was EXHILARATING!! We trekked along the river, chased waterfalls & jumped off cliffs into the bluest green waters! Our guides had the best energy and took lots of great pictures & videos! Truly a very memorable & fun experience!

          Good Experience / Bad time wasting.
          Two rather dichotomous views of the experience. Let’s start with the good. The whale shark swim is so special. These creatures are amazing up close. And we were really lucky that day - about 7-8 were in the area. Apparently, on some day in November, they only had one whale shark! The swim at Kawasan Falls is also very refreshing! The water was chillingly wonderful! We enjoyed swimming against the current and floating in the cool water on a hot day. Guide her is really helpful and warm. Driver was fast, experienced and safe Now the bad. The travelling time is long. The waiting time for whale shark is long (in spite of us leaving at 3am from Cebu). The return trip was super long (5 hours including jam from Kawasan to Cebu city). Driver Elizer made it better with his entertaining stories and patient nature. It will be better to pair your whale shark visit with a visit to the Tumalog falls because that means you are not stuck in that little “street” waiting indeterminately for your number to be called. We were there at 6. We queued for the number and got the number and briefing by 6.45am. Only at 8.45am were we asked to go and get the life jackets for the outing. Bring your own snorkel if you think a snorkel is useful. They only provide life jackets and masks. Overall the two experiences are really nice, but the logistics and unknowns make this either a really enjoyable trip or one that is rather draining.

          Best adventure ever!
          Amazing adventure experiences, totally beyond my expectations. This is an exclusive tour, I booked by myself so the whole drive is only the great driver and me, he came to pick me up at 5 am, and on the way to the destination he passed by Jollibee so I got to get some breakfast (super yummy). The first stop is Scuba Dive, and see the Salatin fish and Sea Turtle, you can rent Go-pro so a tour guide will take pictures and videos for with very reasonable charge. Around 11 am we arrived at the adventure place, and had some lunch before the adventure, my guide was a total of 5 stars called Mac, definitely highly recommend it if you can choose :) He is very caring, and kind and great sense of photography. The canoeing was the best adventure I've had ever, it was scary for the first 2-meter jump, but once you tried you will enjoy it, btw I did my 10-meter jump, so good luck to you! The whole views are very stunning and felt so involved by the natural elements, very satisfying and relaxing. Another 5 stars for the driver Elizer, he is such a kind and humorous person, you won't be bored even for 4 hours driving :) Thank you everyone for offering such a great experience for me in Cebu, hope I'll be back here soon!

          Once in a life time experience! One of the best thing to do in cebu.
          Canyoneering is thrilling! Jumping from a 4-10metres high and exploring the mountains and clear water is a great experience. Whereas for moalboal snorkeling, if you are a beginner like us (novice swimmer), it isn't as fun because most of the time, you will just be drinking sea water. Although we get to see sardine and 2 sea turtles, but it is quite tiring for starters. However, to be able to see the vast deep sea and groups of sardine swimming below us is a spectacular view. Our guide for canyoneering is great, he helped us took many photos and take care of us. Do note to go on a non-public holiday as our waiting line for zipline took more than an hour (zip line is not included in this package) Overall, I would recommend this package as it is well organised and thoroughly planned out.

          Great Tour- Highly recommend
          This tour is a must do when visiting Cebu island. They picked us up at our hotel in Cebu and made the journey to Badian. The guide on the water was fantastic and took all the pictures and video so I just had to have fun. It was really an awesome experience that I recommend and will do again. A private group sets up some food half way down the canyoneering adventure, that was some fabulous tasting food. Shout out to the driver too, he was cool. Did I mention the guise was awesome? If you're even considering a tour like this, book this one imo.

          Wonderful arrangements
          I actually booked via Klook, and Mcrich was in charge of our 3 Day Cebu Highlights Tour. The first day was a city tour, second was swimming with whale sharks in Oslob plus Tumalog falls, third was Moalboal island hopping and Kawasan Falls canyoneering. Our driver Rodrigo was new to the job; he said he's only had five months experience, so his English wasn't too good, and we didn't have much conversation, but he was accomodating nevertheless. We wanted to skip some parts of the city tour that we weren't interested in, and stop by a 7-11 and a supermarket, and all we had to do was ask, and he did his best to meet our needs. On the second day we were fortunate enough to finish the whale shark experience very early, so we moved the Kawasan Falls canyoneering to the second day, which turned out to be the correct choice because on the third day we could sleep in a bit and return to the city sooner. Also we skipped Aguinid Falls and went to Tumalog Falls instead, per Rodrigo's suggestion. It turned out to be great. Rodrigo handled the rescheduling perfectly, and he was a safe driver. He kept our stuff safe for us, and did all the negotiating with the locals. Essentially all we had to do was show up. The guides that Mcrich are in cooperation with are all super good. Our canyoneering guide was very experienced and helpful. Our Moalboal island hopping boatmen were also very professional and took wonderful underwater pictures of us with sea turtles and the sardine run. I would book with Mcrich again.

          Terrible Viator attraction
          Vendor stated that they can pick up at Pier one in Cebu. I purchased this tour for six people. Later, they text that the pick up is 3 hours away and we have to find our own ride there! We tried to cancel and they agreed to cancel but did not refund our money despite the fact that they posted the wrong information regarding their tour.

          Bike ride, Zipline and Canyoneering at Kawasan Waterfalls
          We had a blast, raw adventure with motorbike ride, zipline and short jungle walk to the start of Kawasan waterfalls, serene nature with clear water and fish in the river you can see clearly. Michael and Daniel our private guide was awesome, careful instructions on how to hike the rivers and also spots to and how to jump from the falls, they are kind and careful, great conversation and also helped us take photos all the way.

          Fantastic Experience
          Our guide Jerry was absolutely a pleasure, he guided us safely through the experience and even took pictures and videos for us to enjoy afterwards. Our driver Glenn got us there and back safe and I would highly recommend Mcrich, we booked via Klook and it was a third of the price to what the hotel offered.

        This was one of our favourite days while travelling!

        Whale sharks swam right up to you, many times! There’s a long queue to get into the boat and water (about 2 hrs for us), but there are coffee/ breakfast shops and souvenir shops nearby. I don’t think there is a way to bypass the long wait and it was so worth it to swim with the whale sharks!!

        Canyoneering was definitely an adventure and adrenaline rush! The terrain getting to the waterfalls and cliffs can be tough (it’s all through water with lots of rocks). Our guides were spectacular and would literally hold my hand through tough areas or guide us where to put our hands and feet when climbing a cliff. They also were very encouraging to face your fear and jump off the high cliffs (some were 10ft!). The one guide filmed and took pictures using our own GoPro the whole time too.

        I’d definitely do this one again!

        Everything was arranged at its best! We will definitely comeback for more! I recommend though to split it for two days, cause after sharks you re a bit tired for canyoneering and there are a lot of ppl in the afternoon.

        Booked this tour via Klook and honestly it did not disappoint. Shout out to our driver Joseph and our canyoneering tour guides Alric and Jowel for making this experience so memorable.

        For Oslob, be prepared to wait a while. When you reach the whale shark area, there will be lots of venders trying to sell you a phone pouch to protect your phone underwater. Would suggest buying it here as it should be no more than 100php. Whale sharks are beautiful creatures and you get up close and personal with these friendly giants!

        With regards to canyoneering, I found this activity quite difficult. However, our tour guides Alric and Jowel made sure I was well supported throughout the whole experience. They are an hilarious bunch, and made the trek super fun. They also gave me plenty of options if I was too scared to jump down any of the cliffs. Alric also takes the best photos! Couldn’t have asked for better tour guides.

        One thing I’d suggest if you’re not well versed in hiking is to take the zipline option at the start of the trek which cuts your hiking time by 45 minutes. The zipline costs 600php per person and well worth it for the views.

        Thanks again Mcrich Travels!

        I highly recommend this tour, we hired Mcrich as our outfitter and guide service for trip. Our adventure was just as advertised for 120 USD per person which consisted of hotel pickup at 3am and drop off around 4:30pm from our hotel on Mactan island, the whale shark encounter and swimming was amazing and was the first thing we did right away in the morning and would highly recommend renting a GoPro camera there for 550 pesos if you don’t already have one as the boat men took some great underwater videos and pictures for us. After swimming with the whale sharks there is a short drive (1 hour or so) to Kawasan falls. Here at Kawasan falls we definitely had an experience of a lifetime seeing God’s beautiful creation through the beauty of nature and by one only being there for yourself to experience will you truly be able to appreciate it. We were very blessed with a personal guide for my wife and myself who is named Kuya Daniel from Mcriches outfitters, he went above and beyond to make our time spent there extra special, Kuya Daniel was very professional, patient, knowledgeable and very kind, knowing all the ins and outs of the canyon, answering many questions we had along the way all while taking professional high quality pictures at all the right places that will help preserve the memories we had there. This outfitter does provide all the necessary equipment for the excursion that you will need but I would possibly recommend bringing your own water shoes if they have a more firm bottom for the many rocks that you will be stepping on and over throughout the canyon. This adventure was finished off with a delicious lunch at the home base of Mcrich at the end of the canyon where the freshwater meets the sea.
        Thanks again Mcrich and Kuya Daniel and like you said “we will see each other again in dream land” my brother in Christ.
