          Amazing experience ✨✨😉
          It was a beautiful day to experience this wonderful tour . We were picked up on time and made few stops . We enjoyed feeding the fish (koi) , tasted the coconut pie end ate slices of fresh pineapple. The pie and fruits are very good . We walked to the pineapple plantation nearby . It was hot but we are prepared , we have our hat and umbrella ! The Jeepney ride to palace in the sky was fun . The view of Taal volcano is not clear , it was hazy at that time . We like the visit to the market and food tasting . It’s something interesting . The best part of this is the boat ride in Taal lake and having lunch with a view. It was about an hour ride and our boatman is outstanding! Overall , an amazing experience bec of the excellent tour guides Julius and Asia . Thanks to the driver Malon for driving safely to our destinations!

          Rich Culinary, Cultural Time in Oldest Chinatown
          This foodie tour in the oldest Chinatown was a wonderfully rich culinary and cultural experience. My guide, Eddy, did a wonderful job navigating through the entire Chinatown. Not only did we go to the best, renowned food vendors in the heart of Chinatown, but I appreciated the opportunity to wade deep into the bustling gauntlet of seafood, fruit, produce vendors - even solar appliance vendors - that all the locals patronize. It was a great immersive experience on every score. Highly recommended that you start this tour famished. It was wonderful cuisine and sweets that kept on coming all day!

          Two beautiful places to see in one trip!
          This trip was amazing. Here’s a bit of a breakdown for anyone looking to go! First off- you will get wet and you will be in the sun. So sunscreen, towel and swim clothes. Also I highly recommend water shoes over flip flops. There are rocks and a bit of hiking and water shoes are easier. Also hidden valley has lockers, showers, and bathrooms. If you want to shower bring shower things. Ladies- bring toilet paper because there was none at the falls. (That’s common for a lot of places). If you want to tip or buy a drink or something- bring cash otherwise everything is paid for. (Hidden valley also sells soda and beer which need cash) We were picked up from our hotel at 6am in a large comfortable van. Our tour guide, Eddy, and our driver, Marlon, were both friendly and let us know if we needed anything from them- to let them know. We asked to stop somewhere for coffee and snacks so Marlon found a spot with a Starbucks and snacks. Eddy answered all my questions regarding the Philippines with knowledge and enthusiasm… especially for 6am! Ha! When we got to our first stop for the falls, we were given a quick heads up about pushy tipping culture and reassured that everything we are about to experience was already paid for and not to feel pressured unless we really wanted to. Also we could leave belonging in the car because they would take care of them. There were bathrooms, showers and changing areas. The falls were beautiful. We were asked for tips or to purchase food at every stop, but if you said no thank you, they understood and kept going. It was very impressive how they maneuvered through the rocks and pulled the canoes through. The first part of the trip is in the sun, but once you get into the jungle area, it’s mostly shade. The second falls you can get on a raft and they will take you under the falls to a cave and you can get in the water. The water was cool and the raft guy took tons of photos for us with one of our phones. The trip back was significantly faster (going with the current of course). When we got back to the van we started for hidden valley. Eddy pointed out some things along the way and talked about the springs and the volcano. He also answered my questions about the local architecture features as well as some history behind it. They also stopped along the side of the road so we could try Buco (coconut) water and Bibingka 🤤. It was very tasty and a perfect snack. Once at hidden valley he got us our tickets and told us where to go and where they would be when we were done. We went to the buffet first and the staff was very inviting and helpful. The food was pretty good. But we were more excited to go to the springs! The springs were very relaxing. The warm pool was the perfect temperature for relaxing. And the closer to the warm falls you are, the warmer the water. Same one with the soda pool except colder. We also hiked to the hidden falls. Towards the end of the hike it did get a bit dodgy, but they had a guide to help you along the way. All in all it was a very relaxing day. When we were done the longest part was the ride home due to traffic in the Philippines being terrible. We all fell asleep. Marlon was a very safe driver and at no point did I feel unsafe. We arrived back at our hotel around 7. All in all we enjoyed a very relaxing day and felt very well taken care of. I highly recommend this trip.

          Had such an amazing time on this tour, I was fortunate enough to be the solo traveller on this tour and Andrei was simply amazing. So fantastic that I changed my next tour so I could join his group the following day. He was full of knowledge and friendly. I highly recommend.

          Unforgettable Journey with Knowledgeable Guides at YOLO Travel Philippines
          I had an unforgettable experience with YOLO Travel Philippines. My hosts, Mark (MJ) and Joanna, were fantastic. Mark's deep knowledge of Philippine history and Joanna's bubbly personality made them a perfect team. We traveled from Manila to Tagaytay, making various stops along the way. Despite the fog obscuring Taal Volcano, the trip was amazing. I gained a deeper appreciation for Jose Rizal and enjoyed a delicious coconut pie that resembled apple pie. Our journey through Intramuros was enlightening, filled with rich history. Special shoutout to Malone, our driver, who had a lovely personality and is a huge Celtics fan, which made him great in my book. I highly recommend Mark and Joanna as tour guides for any trip. They made my experience truly memorable.

          Pagsanjan falls and rapids tour
          Had a great time on the Pagsanjan falls with Seana as tour guide. She provided great information as we travelled to our destination. The falls were pretty and the rapids were a bit of fun. Thanks to all for a great day 😊

          Amazing tour while in manila
          Amazing tour to get a taste of tagaytay and historic manila. I was only in manila for a couple days and this tour was a great way to see the destinations in a convenient van tour. The fruit tasting was great and the buko pie was a must try. Seana and Zee were great guides that were very knowledgeable and gave great tips on things to do after the tour as well as recommendations for local food to try. Rency was a great driver as well that got us around smoothly.

          Informative and fun
          This was an amazing trip with Seana, Zee and driver Adriane. We went to historical sites and churches in Manila before we headed to the country side. Very informative with detailed history from Seana and Zee. This included a Jeep ride up to a park at the top of the mountain ⛰️ and we could see Taal Volcano. As the volcano erupted 1 or 2? year ago and there are smog around it is not suggested to go closer. I love this trip. I definitely recommend this to everyone.

        Had a wonderful day in a very small group. Sean was a great guide, very knowledgeable and eager to give us a true local experience. Highlight was a spontaneously booked boat tour to come closer to Taal Volcano. Just visit of Taal heritag town felt a bit rushed and given the time to get there, it would be good to make more out of it. But due to the terrible traffic in Manila, you either need to return early or spend even more time in the car. Kudos to our driver, who really did his best to get us back as quick as possible.

        The trip was fun and knowledgeable, even thou there is some part of the trip was quite long way to travel but overall it was fun and memorable.

        We have a wonderful experience on this trip, the staff or the guide which is (sean) and our driver (pedro) they have a very active presence in terms of bring up some things and adjustment on time which very important to us as a tourist for some any unexpected situation.

        Her knowledge was very amazing showing some different local things in the countryside and also the historical part of the old town. We also got an extra amazing trip which is the boat ride heading to the lake of volcano!!!

        Our experience was 10 out of 10!! Long travel but all worth it to see some new things outside in manila.

        The route is very well designed. It was covering the must-see including the Tagaytay area, the view from People’s Park, The Taal basilica and the market. The suggested boat ride gave us a much closer look of the craters, the fish nets (on the lake) and the left behind village next to the craters, which was a nice surprise:) Sean was also showing us the local delicacy (Bulalo, Buko Pie), and briefing us the history of area, geological facts about the volcanoes, which are adding so much value to the tour.

        Sean (guide) and Kyle (driver) were very helpful, caring and knowledgeable. We are so grateful being taken care by them.

        We just have a long and fun day from other trip and tiredness to the hike. My friend and I decided to go out in BGC to see something new outside from manila.

        On this trip we got Sean our (guide) who assisted us and share some facts about the places, she also makes our trip more productive because we go down to the lake and see the volcano. After it we go the old town to see some pine clothes and large church there.

        Our trip became fun, knowledgeable, and amazing because of her and our (driver) Kyle thanks you so much guys !!! Salamat

        First off the team at YOLO tours were extremely responsive. Sean was amazing and reached out to us to confirm pickup time and what we needed to bring promptly after our short-notice booking.
        We were picked up on time in a comfy van by Sean and the rest of the team who made us feel really comfortable and that we were in good hands!
        The trip up to Tagaytay was fantastic, lots to hear about and learn on the way from all the guides.
        There are heaps of snacks along the way and we loved the pie and pineapple!
        Tagaytay and the people’s park in the sky were great and we had great views just before the clouds rolled in and we headed off to Taal.
        We were lucky enough to have Sean to ourselves for the trip to Taal and she was extremely generous with her knowledge and stories.
        We had a long but really pleasant journey home with the opportunity to see much more of the countryside and Red our driver was expert level

        We have a chance to have a little educational tour with Sean our tour guide, the tour was fantastic with her knowledgeable information about the volcano and the places.

        Especially the church was very amazing, and breathtaking with some Spanish Structures designs.

        Our stops was also incredible too, our driver was also fantastic with his skills on the road.

        This tour is very recommended for some educational too.

        Awesome day, John drove us from Manila to Taal Volcano, Eddie described everything we passed on the way and provides bits of Philippine History. Myra assisted to add context. The volcano and lake were beautiful, we had a wonderful lunch at Loumar's Restaurant. After lunch we saw a wedding at the Heritage district and did some shopping.. We listened to music and had enjoyable conversation on the way back!

        This tour is one of a kind experience with some fun group of people, philippines was a very unique coutry with different island, mountains, and volcano.

        Our trip shows some different faces of a countryside, adventure experience riding a jeepney, and lastly having a boat trip as well.

        We learned a lot of things by our guide (Sean) she share some fun facts information and historical too. We got also some trivia from every stop and accurate details from the volcano too.

        The last trip was also fun, seeing the Largest Church in the Asia was fantastic and heart warming because of its good structural design and divine presence as well.

        Plus we seen some lightnings for christmas as well which very attractive and eligant too.

        This tour is highly recommended, just a few reminders the tour will be quiet long drive but the view was perfectly good for countryside sightseeing.
