#1 TOUR COMPANY IN EL NIDO APETOURS. WE JUST GOT BACK TO OUR HOTEL FROM OUR PRIVATE TOUR A WITH, I have to say the best tour company in EL NIDO. Before coming to El Nido with my wife and our 2 yr old son, I did a lot of research for tour agency providing boat tours. I had 3 company that I was considering, and we are so happy we decided with APE TOURS. I would 💯 say they are the best in the business in el nido. We also decided to do a private tour because it’s a moment in your life that you want to remember with your love ones and not have to be hassled by other tourists taking the same tour, but I also saw many videos on YouTube bloggers doing tours with big groups and looked like it’s a blast. It’s also hard for us to do that type of tour with a 2 yr old. We experienced outstanding service and care from the crew of 6, thanks to: Rea forones Rio igam tour guide Reygan paredes boat captain Jc llanera boat helper Carlo dalisam boat helper Rechard erma chef. This guys were kind, and always there when you need anything. They are very professional. They are really provided us with superb service. They are worth every dollar as we say in the USA. They brought a smile to my wife and my son every step of the tour and as for me, it made me feel happy to see the most important people in my life enjoying the day. I am so great full to them. Oh if anyone takes their tours please appreciate their hard work and professionalism and dedication for you to have a memorable day by tipping them. Specifically if they made you happy that day. Thanks Apetours for a memorable day to remember.

Ape Tours service is superb! When I had a 5 day trip in El Nido, our island tour with Ape Tours was the highlight. I tried another operator on another day since Ape Tours was fully booked, and I saw the comparison. Ape Tours is the best. They may be more expensive compared to other tours, but I assure you that IT IS WORTH IT. Why I love Ape Tours compared to the others 1. The culture/crowd they have (Ivan, Jason, I forgot the other names) are so cool, amusement to be with, and can be really funny too! They be dancing too! 2. They have a professional photographer (Ivan), but the other staff take really good photos too (Thanks Jayson!), so you won't have to worry about your tour photos (with the posing and perfect scenery too, they guide you!) and they will send it to you via your email after. 3. They have this waterproof bag where you can put your valuables so you don't have to buy a waterproof bag that costs Php 350 4. Better lifejacket. Their lifejackets are way better than the lifejackets of the other tours where it is old and stinky 5. They provide free rent of snorkeling gears. On some, they have it rented for Php 100, but with Ape Tours it's free! Till next time, Ape Tours!

The private tour we had is one of the best i had in my life. The whole staff and crew really took care of us during the entire trip.They also offer free photography service. They are all professionals, trust worthy and happy in doin their job. The food that they served are all delicious. They made a special fruit platter for our wedding anniversary c/o Chef Richard Erons Our tour coordinators, Ms. Rea Forones and Mr.Jayson made sure that everything we requested were all met in the best way they can. We were well advised of the time of pick up and helped us arranged a trike service from our hotel to port vice versa.The trike drive Mr. COCO Ruez helped us with our bags. The best tour guide and travel photographer, Mr. Jundar Echon, is well versed in English and Filipino. He explained shared his knowledge in every island we went to. Boat Captain Jestoni Abela and crew member Jemmy Bundok made sure that we had an amazing ride. My 5 yr old son was not scared during the entire trip. I am giving this review because i am so proud that this company exist to promote tourism and provide jobs to people.

A family friend recommended Ape Tours from their recent El Nido trip and it was all worth it. The private tours were inclusive of hotel transfers to and from Corong-Corong port, miscellaneous fees (environmental fee, kayak rentals, entrance fees, etc.) and a very delicious meals (lunch and afternoon snacks). We booked tours A and C. On our first day, we were joined by Sir Ivan and his friend Richard. We were very lucky to be on board at Wave Quatro (their new boat) which has a capacity of 30 pax. We were only a group of 5 (4 adults and 1 child). We were the envy of group tours as we pass their boats. Our guide, Sir Rio, was very fun to be with, accommodating with our requests and an excellent photographer. One of the perks of booking Ape tours, you will have a dedicated guide / photographer that will capture all the precious moments and fun activities. Captain Chris navigated the islands smoothly even their were times that the sea was very restless. Kudos to their chef for preparing a very sumptuous meals and to the rest of the crew that helped our trip to be safe. Their off shore staffs (including Sir Ron and Sir Jayson) handled / assisted us very well. We would definitely recommend Ape Tours to our families and friends. Hope we can book again very soon.
