My husband and I used this company for Tour C, and had a great time. The previous day we'd used Discover El Nido for Tour A, and found that overall Tarawis was the better organized of the two companies. Tarawis sent a tricycle to pick us up from our hotel (we hadn't requested this and didn't know it was coming!), and also got started in the boat relatively promptly. We were also provided snorkel equipment and towel free of charge. My one minor complaint was that the boat was at full capacity (not over-crowded, but certainly full) which of course is natural and makes sense from a business perspective, but we did enjoy riding on a nearly empty boat, with just 7 people, when we took Tour A with Discover El Nido. Overall, this was a great company, with good organization, and we would use them again.

Having gone out on a tour the previous day with a different company we were on our way to rebook book another tour and that’s when we seen the small shop front of Tarawis Tours and we are so glad we did. What a fantastic day! Our boat wasn’t overcrowded at all, our tour guide, captain and chef were amazing! I couldn’t recommend enough. Tour A is one of the most popular tours on the island so the islands and lagoons you visit can get crowded. Instead of just shoving us in with the rest of the boats we went around to our other locations and came back at a quieter time. If you are overwhelmed with the selection of tour companies you absolutely can’t go wrong booking with Tarawis. Thanks for a great day

In November 2019 we used Tarawis for two private island tours. We were in El Nido for only a few days and had contacted many tour companies about combining sites from Tours A, B and D into one day to make best use if our time.

Benly (owner of Tarawis) was the one of very few who told us that was not possible due to coastguard and local tourism regulations which had recently changed. Others were willing to break these rules. As a result of Benly’s honesty, we choose Tarawis and paid a little more that we needed to.

Benly was prompt at responding to emails prior to our arrival. His responses were short but accurate and his staff ensured that everything he said, happened.

We stayed in Crong-Corong, but were collected on time both mornings by Benly’s cousin and brought to El Nido town where we were able to hire flippers from Tarawis.

Be prepared for El Nido beach, it is organised chaos and you will likely need to wade out to your boat so have something waterproof to protect your electronics.

Overall we had two great days island hopping with the same crew on both days. The freshly prepared food was both days was fantastic.

If you value being prepared in advance of your arrival, I would highly recommend contacting Tarawis. Also worth nothing they accept card payments.

Thanks Benly and staff, particularly your cousin for looking after us so well for two days.

Terrible experience!
We’ve booked a private boat with 2 days in advance for a boat trip today.
The day before the tour, at 5pm, the guy who booked our tour showed at our hotel and told us that the tour was canceled due to a problem.
It already was strange because he contradicted himself during the speech, but we had no other option than accepting our money back.

After that, we’ve tried to rent another boat in every single agency in town. It was impossible. The city is crowded and every agency is fully booked. TARAWIS Island Tours left us with no option!!

After trying so hard to rent a boat, we’ve decided to go back at TARAWIS and to ask to share a boat with another couple.
To our surprise, there we’re 4 bookings after ours noted on the paper. Why? They are getting our boat and packing it with a non private tour.

There is no problem with the boat. The problem is that the agency owner whats to make more money and decided that two people paying a private tour was not enough. So he decided to rent that boat to random 20 other people and let us with NOTHING to do today.

He didn’t even have the decency to try to book us in another private tour (in a different agency) or to offer a spot on the 20 people tour.

DO NOT BOOK TOURS WITH THEM! If there is a possibility to make more money than what you’ve paid they will certainly leave you without the tour you’ve paid for!

Hi, Thank you for your reviews yes we understand your sentiments but i want to clarify what happen what happen is my staff accept your private tour a day before but on the next day philippine coastguards or the authorities did not allow boat below 3 tons because of the water conditions and weather that are supposed to be your small boat for private because its for two pax only.. its not because of money its for your safety and we follow order fyi im the president of elnido travel and tours associations here...the are you trying to say that is for my group tour as you said you see even i dont have enough passenger to compensate my trip i did not cancelled them...only your private tour because of the small boat...again sorry for mis understanding

Four of us did tour A with this company. They seem to be linked with a few hotels in the area and therefore did not book directly with them and all payments were managed through our hotel. I was however impressed with the overall package offered and we were lucky in that there was only another family of three onboard our tour. Food was really nice and plentiful and all crew on board were pleasant. I’d however would have like a bit more of engagement from the crew as at times they were a bit scripted in their approach and only spoke when telling us about our next destination. We really enjoyed the experience and would recommend this company to others looking to book.

We did Tour A in El Nido with Tarawis. Both get the best score from us. The beaches and islands are incredibly beautiful, the snorkelling super and the staff friendly and relaxed. The food for lunch was also very good.

My wife and I came to El Nido for our honeymoon and we had pre-booked our tours with Tarawis before arriving.

Communication was great via email - very quick to respond. On arrival to our hotel which was late at night due to delayed flights (we had planned to visit the office during the day) we were told all was taken care of and we would be collected the next morning at 9am.

In total, we had booked all 4 tours (A to D) with Tarawis and we thoroughly enjoyed them all. Special mention to Alwin who came to collect us each morning and who was our tour guide for the first tour - he was great is assisting us and taking photos of us when needed. Food at lunch was also very nice and enjoyed eating. Towel and snorkel masks were provided which was good. The areas we went to on tour were also great to visit.

Thank you to Tarawis for making our honeymoon visit to El Nido enjoyable whilst on tours.

We did a private tour with them this May and we loved every minute of it. Food was delicious. Drivers were friendly and always willing to give us any background information on any of the islands we visited. One of the drivers was also always willing and volunteering to take pictures of my friends and I during the tour. Boat was large and very clean.

I would definitely recommend a tour with Tarawis to anyone, especially for private tours.
