          Villa Escudero
          Stop: 6 hours - Admission included
          Located approximately 2.5 hours south of Manila is the quaint and historic Villa Escudero. Hidden amidst coconut palms, the villa is reminiscent of old plantation life. The Villa Escudero resort is nestled deeply into its placid natural surroundings, offering breathtaking views of the Philippine countryside year round. One of the major highlights of the tour is a family museum of archaeological artifacts and private collections of antique relics from periods ranging from Pre-History, Spanish colonial times and World War II. Local folks will serenade you on board water buffalo-drawn carts that transport you going to a man-made waterfall that provides hydroelectric power to the plantation. Lunch is served at the foot of the falls on tables set right on top of the gently flowing water. Their waterfall restaurant sits at the foot of the Labasin Falls where guests can enjoy local cuisine at handmade bamboo tables while clear spring water runs over their feet. The falls are so people friendly, guests can even lie against the rushing water covered wall for quick massage or post-lunch rinse off. This is one resort where no shirt and no shoes are no problem.

          Cavinti Cave Spelunking
          Cavinti Cave was amazing! You get to drive through a jungle to get to the cave. Red was our driver and Jonathan was our guide. Both were amazing, and went above and beyond to make our experience so enjoyable. We got a little wet in the cave but nothing that wasn’t fun. We even got to take a shower in the cave from a natural waterfall coming out of it. You don’t have to do that if you don’t want to get fully wet though. My boyfriend and I explored the cave for 2.5 hours then had time to swim in this beautiful river and take in the jungle views. On the drive back they would have stopped anywhere If we wanted to along the way. Jonathan took us to this place on the drive home to try a filipino pastry and it was delicious. Such a wonderful experience!

          Glad We Selected This Tour - A Long Day, but a Great Day - Lots to See!
          Trip was well planned and there was a lot to see. It was advertised as an 8-10 hour trip but ended up being around 12 hours - just because the tour covered so many locations and we spent a lot of time on the road. Our gides Eddy and Seana along with our driver Red took great care of us. They are young, energetic and very service oriented! Eddy was very knowlegable and passionate about the history and culture of the Philippines. We visited local outdoor shopping areas, tasted local foods, experienced a ride in a Jeepney and expericened some great views at Tagaytay. Not very demanding physically but some walking which was find for my wife and I (we are in our mid 60s). The tour concluded at Intramuros and Fort Santiago. Eddy was very knowledgable about the history of that area. My only criticism was the resturant selected for lunch. It was a beautiful setting and the food was delicious. However, approximately 45 minutes after our orders were placed, someone came out to tell us one item we ordered was not available (a type of soup). We told him to just eliminate that item. After waiting another 20-30 minutes we had to locate our server and ask him to check on our orders. The resturant was not particularly busy as there were only four other small parties there (and believe all came after our group of six people). The crew from YoloTravel were very apologetic. Eddy and Seana helped us select our food and specifically told the server we needed our food to be delivered within 20 minutes as we needed to get back on the road. The server agreed - saying it would not be a problem. There were also some issues with the bill and Eddy and Seana helped in getting those issues resolved.

          Underrated and Unpopular site must visit!!
          A must visit. It’s an active volcano site. Overlooking by the Italian restaurant housed inside Cliffhouse. Amazing food, super delicious, quite pricey but worth it. Beautiful views of the Taal lake and Volcano. Around 2 hours drive from Metro Manila with amazing, most beautiful and decorative Starbucks in The world located within this vicinity. A must visit.

          A great way to spend a day outside of Manila with a thoughtful planned itinerary and all things taken care of
          Our guide Eddy is very thoughtful and extremely knowledgeable about Philippine’s history in all regards. Driver Kyle is very polite and handled crazy traffic safely and tactically. Overall a 5-star tour experience.

          Tagaytay-a great way to experience the natural wonders of the Philippines.
          This tour to Tagaytay is a great way to leave the hustle and bustle of Manila and enjoy the beauty of one of Philippines’ natural wonders. Seana and Eddy were wonderful guides who ensured that the group had a fantastic experience. Pedro, our driver, safely transported us from one stop to another. Seana provided us with valuable insights into the history and customs of the Philippines. I had a great time on this tour.

        We had a 22-hour layover in Manila and this was the perfect tour to fill our time. Shawn and John were great hosts. The time went by so quick - we walked through the museum, did a caribou ride, relaxed by the pool, had a buffet lunch and saw a traditional Filipino dance show. I highly recommend this tour if you have at least 10 hours to spare.

        The tour began early on July 1st and immediately our tour guide Sean was so nice and easy to get along with! From drive to museum Sean was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of facts about the area and artifacts we saw. The trip itself was beautiful and we were lucky to have great weather the entire day. Although each area of the plantation was memorable in itself my favorite part was the museum and all the one of a kind pieces they have there. I would absolutely recommend this trip to those who are interested!

        This would be perfect for friends and family to chill and relax.

        Our tour guide Sean was the best !!!!! They bring a microphone for us, so one of our member take in charge to sing and rap inside the van.

        But to be honest Sean was very amazing!!! Her knowledge was fantastic, every inch of details that she can see has a direct information. We felt that we have a walking encyclopedia, the villa was very fantastic.

        It was lifetime experience the carabao riding, pool, kayak, cultural show, and the last the museum was 100% beautiful.

        Thanks to our driver Pedro!!

        For making us safe and bringing a microphone for us. We hope that we can listen your voice singing.

        Great job to this Team !!!

        I normally don’t write a review for the many tours I’ve experienced in my lifetime. But, I have to admit Villa Escudero Coconut Plantation Tour is in top 10 to add to anyone’s bucket list. I appreciate Yolo Tour Guide Eddie and his driver Edgar they both made us feel safe throughout the entire day; Eddie, Yolo Tour Guide was amazingly knowledgeable with a beautiful character of respect, friendliness and energy. I will be sharing our experience with families and friends, recommending the tour and Yolo Travels. Thank you✌🏽Aggie

        What an experience ! We had Andrei as our tour guide and he was so knowledgeable, friendly, funny and kind! The day trip was much better than we thought it would be! Started off at a museum to know about the Filipino history, stroll around the garden, took a Clarabelle to a lake where Andrei accompanied my partner canoeing . Then we went to The Waterfall where we had a lunch buffet, afterwards we went to a pool and jacuzzi area that I did not except! To finish it off we watched a lovely traditional show .
        Would 100% recommend this day trip! Thank you again Andrei!

        The tour was amazing! Beautiful nature walk, clean, friendly staff, delicious native dishes for lunch. The use of native materials allows one to be immersed in the culture of the Philippines, I.e. the carabao ride, use of banana leaves and coconut shells for lunch, coconut drinks. The cultural show was amazing! Our tour guide, Eddy, was professional and knowledgeable of the history of Villa Escadero as well as answering questions we had of Philippine economy, politics, and geographic information. Eddy was prompt in picking us up at our hotel. He was friendly and pleasant throughout the tour making sure we were comfortable and enjoying the activities.

        We took this tour on a Sunday when traffic during the day was not too bad. Our guide Sean and driver Malo were very welcoming upon picking us up at our hotel. On our way to the plantation, Sean was pointing things out from the road and answering any questions we had about the Filipino culture.

        We had such a wonderful experience at the plantation, with all the richness in culture- having a mini adventure with the bamboo kayaks, riding with water buffalo while being serenaded by musicians, the beautiful lush landscapes of the property grounds, seeing the ornate and historical objects at the museum, eating a delicious traditional Filipino buffet in the most unique waterfall setting, and enjoying the amazing and talented dancers and musicians at the cultural show. It was a fabulous experience and Sean made our tour very enjoyable!

        The only thing I’d do differently is pack my earbuds and phone charger. The drive back to our hotel was longer than expected due to the traffic. Thankfully Sean and Malo were understanding and made a restroom stop twice for me on the ride back to our room.

        I’d 100% recommend booking this tour.
        Salamat, Sean for your warm, kind, knowledgeable and accommodating energy!
