          Great tour
          We had a short time in Manila so we booked this tour. Seana, our tour guide, and Rency, our driver, were great. Seana was very friendly and knowledgeable. Loved the fruit tasting! We learned a lot and had a great day!

          A one day productive trip with YOLO Travel
          A lovely experience here in the Philippines with our Guide (Seana) and (Kyle) the driver, we see some different thigs in the area with much history and sightseeing capturing the beauty of the old historic manila and the volcano as well. We recommend this tour if you want to see the different perspective of outside and inside of Manila, there service was very accommodating and professional in terms of deliberation and assisting as well.

          Illuminating night tour with exceptional guides
          I recently experienced the YOLO Manila Sightseeing by Night tour, and it was phenomenal! Seana and Genesis, our guides, were amazing storytellers and brought the city’s history and culture to life. Their extensive knowledge and genuine passion for Philippines were evident in every story they shared. They didn't just stick to the script but generously included personal anecdotes that offered a deeper insight into the local lifestyle and traditions. Their enthusiasm and humour was infectious, making the tour both informative and incredibly enjoyable. The tour covered many iconic sights - Paco Park cemetery, Fort Santiago, Intramuros, China Town - beautifully illuminated at night, offering a unique perspective of the city. Seana and Genesis ensured we were comfortable and entertained throughout, making it a memorable and enriching experience. The heartbreaking but important stories from WWII were particularly poignant. I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore Manila in a truly special way.

          Great tour and Guide with good transport.
          Tour Guide: Eddy Driver: Rency Great communication night before. Picked up on time and was a great tour with a very knowledgeable and attentive Guide and driver. We possibly stopped for lunch longer than I would have liked but that was just personal preference. I would use this team again.

          Fantastic Experience
          Eddy was an absolutely fantastic tour guide. He is incredibly knowledgeable about everything on the tour as well as able to answer any questions you have about manila. Eddy made the tour both incredibly fun and informative. On the trip to tagaytay we stopped and enjoyed a delicious pineapple pie and then explored a market. We then proceeded to the Peoples Park in the Sky, rode a jeepney and enjoyed some fantastic views of the countryside. The boat tour was nice and relaxing, and then went to lunch at a local restaurant with delicious food. Overall it was an incredible experience with incredible tour guides and drivers.

          Great nighttime experience of Manila
          We did the nighttime Manila tour with Eddy which was great fun! Eddy was very informative and positive, tailoring the tour for our benefit and communicating well regarding pickup times/location. Red was also a prudent driver who drive courteously and carefully. Would recommend this tour

          Good experience for a boat trip to volcano
          We had a private tour with an amazing experiences on the boat and road trip. It was exciting to see this volcano by taking the cruise. Our tour guide (Seana) is also amazing with her friendly interactions. We got a good memory and good services from both Seana and John as a driver, so I would recommend to take this one day tour if you are visiting Manila. 🤩

          Overall amazing and simply breathtaking!!
          I wasn't sure what to expect on our excursion to Pagsanjan Falls and Hidden Valley Springs but it definitely did not disappoint. The scenery and people we encountered went above and beyond our expectations. The trip to the Falls was a breathtaking experience with views that one only dreams of. The amount of labor put into the canoe guides is applaudable and extremely respected and appreciated. The Hidden Falls grounds and pools were beyond relaxing and beautiful. I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone visiting the Phillipines, especially if you're near Manila and have a free day off.

          Fun and beautiful excursion to Taal volcano
          It is a good day of fun and we visited several places to experience local Tagatay and viewing points of the Taal volcano. Boat ride brings you onto the lake and up close to Daang Kastila. Tour guide-Seana was excellent in coordinating with us on a couple of pick-up points and very punctual and organised throughout. We learned about the local culture from Seana and through experiencing some of the local foods and places. Seana was attentive to our requests and very professional. We were, of course, in the safe hands of our driver-John. Thank you Seana and John!

          Tagaytay ~ Taal Volcano
          Having over 11 ppl in the group, the tour provides us with private tour. The tour guide is really nice. They took us to visit some local shops first. They buy us the pineapple pie. It tastes real nice. We really want to try coconut pie but it's sold out. If you want to wait, another batch takes around 1 hour or more. Unfortunately, it usually sold out in 3 minutes so we didn't wait for it. They took us to places that we can take beautiful photos. Then, the highlight is the boat excursion to get closer to the volcano! Such a memorable experience.

          Poor value for the experience
          Trip was super expensive (would recommend doing it yourself with a private driver or even a taxi). There was very little commentary from the guide (he was lovely, answered questions, slept a lot) so you really just need the driver. The boat trip to the Pagsanjan falls was great - but can organise this yourself. Be prepared to be in full sun for an hour. The hidden valley springs were ‘ok’. The included buffet lunch was average (not even a soft drink included for our total tour cost of US$240 - I find this underwhelming). Again you get dropped and do this yourself ….so it’s an expensive swim really. Didn’t have enough time here to swim and go to the falls so can’t comment on what they’re like. The vehicle was air conditioned which was great, sorted out the issue with the seatbelts, but would expect a bit more modern and comfortable, including wifi, for the cost.

        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.
