          Whale sharks
          It was a great time. Best part was the swimming with the Whale sharks! The island was pretty but high tide so not much of a beach area. The water falls was beautiful, a little hike to get there but worth it.

          pick cebutours, ask for abam the driver.
          After watching youtube of long waits n unhappy experience, my son n i were quite concerned about this trip. We stumbled onto cebutours, the best thing happened to us. On cebutours website they have a whatsapp number. i could talk to their staff to address different concerns and questions we have. Cebutours was able to arrange airport pick up, sent us to the Sandrines rush venue (4hrs drive) and sent us to our hotel. We were so impressed by their driver Abam, that we requested cebutours to assign Abam to be our destinated driver for the next 2 tours we booked with cebutours. Abam always early, polite, provide extra information when requested, safe and focus driver, son n i had good rest on his car rides. next day, the sharkwhales experience was smooth n awesome. early morning(515am) pick up to get our queue number, then we were driven to another nearby motel beach area for breakfast with a wonder view. we had time to rewind during this wait (1-2hrs). watching the whalesharks is unreal. u need to have GoPro or rent one. the boatman will help u video your experience, ask nicely and do tip them. 3rd tour was canyoneering and kawasan water fall. the guides are very professional. 2 guides to my son n me. we love the experience so much. do pick cebutours for the best experience.

          Well organised and fun trip
          Beautiful island, so impressed with the private transportation to the island and back from Cebu really nice driver 2 minutes early for pick up and was waiting for us a the harbour on the way back. We managed to get breakfast on the island before beginning the tour went to some awesome snorkelling spots and then had a great lunch with fresh fish pork and all sorts then we got back on the boat where we didn’t even have to wait a minute to board so overall great experience and the guides were really friendly and knowledgeable too.

          An unforgettable experience
          We wanted a private tour without having to wait for hours to swim with the whale sharks! It was advertised as swimming with the whale sharks but when we got there we were presented with diving gear! The instructions were 5 minutes long and my daughter did not enjoy it as could not get the hang of diving. I refused due to having high blood pressure and must say they accommodated me to go on the boat instead of diving. It should specify it is diving not swimming as this was a shock. Otherwise it was a brilliant trip, started early at 4 am. It was advertised as a 2 hour drive but it was 3-5 both ways! The island hopping was brilliant but please wear leggings or a long wetsuit as my children got badly bitten by sea lice and got flu symptoms after. The food was basic tbh breakfast was awful bread and bananas! Lunch was a lot better. Why they could not give panera bread or pastries for breakfast after 3 and a half hours in the car I don’t know. The boat helpers were brilliant and helped me when the current nearly dragged me away! All in all it was an unforgettable experience and the whale shark brushed against me and are gentle giants Thank you

          Great day, highly recommend, private tour was the best!
          We had a great day on our private tour, our tour guides were amazing, very informative and organised. Much prefer private tour over group tour as you could leave each place when you felt like it. We got to experience the whale sharks up so close which was really amazing and the falls and island were beautiful tour. Wilson our driver was great company along with the other guides. Definitely recommend.

          Highly recommended!
          We booked a private tour with the Oslob whale shark encounter, Sumilon Island tour and Moalboal snorkeling with the sea turtles and sardines. Their reservation officer, John M was always on time when responding via email. Our driver, Jomz and our tour guide in Oslob, Merlita were very friendly and polite . They assisted us all throughout and were attentive to all our needs. Our boat crew both in Oslob and in Moalboal were also very helpful and accommodating. I am not a good swimmer but they made me feel at ease and they were always there to give guidance while snorkeling. We really had an amazing and memorable experience! Everything went smoothly from the time we were picked up from our hotel to the time were were dropped off. We highly recommend Cebu Tours! They have a team of professional and knowledgeable staff. This tour was definitely one for the books!

          The kindest people giving you once in a lifetime experiences
          The tour was really incredible. Our driver Josef was extremely knowledgeable, kind, considerate, and spoke good english. We drove up to Osmena Peak and were taken up to the top by an incredible guide who taught us about the region, the mountains, and was almost a human drone and took the most incredible pictures. It was like being in the heavens. Canyoneering was such a great experience, the guys who take you around the falls are incredible at their jobs, keeping you safe, giving you the best time, and getting great pictures without ever getting your phone wet. We have completed the Safari tour, the osmena peak and canyoneering tour, and the cebu mountains tour. We had the same great driver for all three as we built a great relationship with him and thanks to Cebu tours for allowing him to be our driver each time. They really go above and beyond for you.

          Professionally run private tour
          Great well run private tour. While it was a long day of 14hrs it didn't not feel like it as my partner and I had our private car. Abam was a great driver we was professional and courteous and was on time. In fact he was early. The tour was so well run and we never felt like we were just waiting around. Ellen who organised our whale shark, lunch and breakfast was great. I would highly recommend this tour.

          best driver and tour guides!!
          our driver Josef picked us up at our lobby at 3:30AM, we couldn’t have asked for a better driver, he was such a nice man and very accommodating and told us some history about cebu so we learnt some new things. we had Tia for our whale shark but it was too many people for us so we were overwhelmed and decided not to do it but yet she packed our lunches and accompanied and accommodated us to our liking and made us feel like we could do whatever we wanted at any moment. she ran us through the whole experience even if we didn’t end up doing the whale shark. for our canyoneering we had the best guides, Samuel, Joshua and their two friends. they made it very safe for us, took the best pictures and at every angle, they were very funny and definitely made our day, i would highly recommend the four of them for the canyoneering. also don’t forget to tip all of the people that work and guide us through these trips as it more than helps them. they work hard enough to deserve every bit of tips!!!

          Poor offering for average snorkelling experience, bad equipment and overpriced
          We were quite surprised and a bit disappointed that the tour operator only offered very low quality snorkel masks (too small for my friend) and that diving fins were not included. At the first snorkelling sppot we were offered to rent Fins for an on-charge :O. Having no proper fins included didn't help for the strong rips that had to be navigated in the 2 snorkel spots (we hoped to get 3 spots). It also seems that the tour operates at a snorkel track that is daily frequented by 1000 - 1500 people, all moved from one spot to the other, dropped in and then left to navigate between lots of new ships coming in or leaving ships going out. The quality of reef / corals was quite average, grey and rocky and the areas for snorkelling were fenced in too. Some nice fish are to be seen but overall and for the price of this offering we felt that we have been underdeliverd to.

          Swimming with whale shark
          The experience of swimming next to a whale shark is insane. For confident swimmers/divers, you probably will have a wonderful experience of moving around to view the whale sharks. For the rest like me, we are probably holding on to the edges of the boat and watching the whale go around you. The GoPro is a great extension for the trip. The rental was 550 peso and the boatman takes the video/pic for you. Due to the current etc, the videos may not be the best but there were some nice shots. One big downside for us as a couple was the lack of vegetarian food for my spouse. For lunch, he was only given vegetable stir fry and rice, while for me, I had pork noodles, chicken dish with soya sauce and chicken soup, and rice. We ended up ordering an omelette for my spouse. This happened even after I wrote to the agency to inform them about my dietary requirements. I also asked them to let me know if they cannot cater vegetarian food so that we could come more prepared. But we were assured that there will be vegetarian food but I didn't realise that just one dish is considered a vegetarian option. Hope the agency can reconsider their food options to be more vegetarian friendly when needed.

          Will book with this tour again! We did back to back tours with them, this one and the Mactan Island Hopping. These guys are great! They communicated well. The van they picked us up in was well maintained and comfortable. The whale shark experience and the canyoneering adventure was definitely an experience to remember. Big big shout out to our driver Kuya Josef. Thank you for getting us from Cebu City to Oslob and back safely - the streets in the Philippines is not for the faint of heart, and comfortably. Thank you Joy for helping us in Oslob. And a huge thanks to their partners at Let's Go Trek Tour! The gang was amazing! Thank you for making sure we are safe while we enjoy the adventure of canyoneering. Will book with these guys again, hopefully when we come back to Cebu.

        Driver arrived at designated hotel. But didn’t speak a word of english. Starting asking me questions in Filipino which o had no idea what he was saying. Zero info given on places we visited. Just dropped me there and paid the entrance fee.
        Tour finished at 3pm. Driving round the city with the driver was quite erratic with his radio playing loud all the time I was in the car.
        Wasn’t impressed with the overall experience being driven round in a rather unclean private car and clearly not a tour guide.
        He wasn’t rude and was polite but not what I paid for.
        For 100 British pounds I feel I was genuinely mis sold the experience and would not recommend this to anyone.

        Hi, we are sorry about your experience, as stated in the inclusions that this is only with Driver only who will take you to destinations who can also assist you to take pictures if you will ask him. An accredited tour guide by the department of tourism is available as an add-on who will explain everything to you about history, etc cuz they are trained to do that. But then again, we apologize if we have not meet your expectations. Thank you and have a nice day.

        This was a wonderful way to see the city and its landmarks, unfortunately some local event took place and prevented me to visit a few key places.

        Richmond, the driver, was absolutely helpful and gave some descriptions on the places visited. Would still recommend booking a credited tour guide if you want to get detailed information on the history etc.

        House of Lechon had excellent food as well, definitely recommend getting this.

        Overall would recommend this tour and Richmond!

        Thanks for the very relaxing and safe ride for the city tour. I don’t have any complaint with the courteous driver. Only little thing is the office must guide him properly and give the print copy of itinerary so he don’t need to ring the office or ask the client incase client don’t get the copy of itinerary too. Other than that it was very good. Car seems brand new.

        This was an amazing experience! Our driver was Richmond "Rich" and man was he RICH! He was full of knowledge, kind, patient and informative! We could not have asked for a better driver and experience! The sites we visited were absolutely astonishing as we learned about the history and culture of Cebu City and Lapu-Lapu!

        House of Lechon was excellent food as well! Great food choice for this tour!

        We highly recommend this tour and Rich!

        Our trip was very informative and we definitely covered a lot of sights and territory . Our guide was late but he made up for it by being a good tour guide and our own personal photographer, lol. Friendly, knowledgeable and was willing to be very patient with us as we spent a little extra time at each site. I would recommend this excursion as you get a good exposure to Cebu’s important historical locations. Good value for the price we paid.

        We got to visit quite a few places along the way. Junejay our driver was dependable and friendly. Jonathan our guide was happy to share his knowledge, but could do better in terms of engaging our family (which is made up of different age groups-70s to teens).
        Guitar factory had no workers (because it is Christmas Eve) so we didn’t have much to see, and travelled quite far to Mactan).
        Jonathan re-arranged the itinerary so we had good weather on the hill in the morning. And he was always accommodating.
        Lunch at House of Lechon is very pleasant.
        Overall enjoyable, but could be more energetic.

        This tour is perfect for people visiting Cebu for the firts time. Each stop was packed with so much beauty and history.

        I was fortunate to have Richmond as my driver. He was so passionate about Cebu and it’s history that he provided me with in-depth history lessons about each location. He didn’t mind being my photographer either.

        Richmond was prompt, patient, professional, and kind throughout the tour.

        He was dedicated to creating an all around great experience for me and I am forever grateful.

        Thank you, Richmond!

        The tour was absolutely amazing. Was able to see a bunch of the historical parts of the Philippines. The driver and tour guide (Judy) did a great job. Very friendly and was able to communicate well. Would definitely recommend.
        A few tips.
        *Bring smaller bills *comfortable walking shoes
        * Power bank for cell phone, taking pictures will drain your battery.

        Highly recommend Cebu tour. I am usually the type that likes group tour, but my tour guide Josef made the tour interesting and lots of things to talk about. He is knowledgeable with history and stories of the scenic spots. Also recommended me nice food to eat!
        I felt safe and lots of fun. Thank you Josef from Cebu tour for a great day trip!
