I have no complaints about the trip, I just think that having a guide and a driver was overkill and we probably therefore paid over the odds. The guide, lovely and polite as she was, added little to the experience as she actually slept more of the long journey than we did ourselves and didn't interact that much compared to other guides we have had. The driver on the other hand was an absolute star getting us there and back safely and in not too bad a time considering the distance/conditions/traffic.
Unfortunately we couldn't do one of the islands due to rough water but the Sardine run was amazing to see. Wall to wall super shoals of sardines glimmering in the water, topped off with turtles too...and a few jelly fish, nothing too painful though.
I do think they should start restricting numbers better as the area is full of boats coming and going with lots of none swimmers being towed around in the water with no control of their own. It felt a little like an accident waiting to happen.
Kawasan falls is lovely, if a little underwhelming due to the crowds if I'm honest.
Given it's massive build up I was just expecting something else, maybe we should have done the canyoning to get the full experience. The walk along the river to the falls is beautiful, the milky water beautiful too but there are many falls in Phillipines that are as if not more spectacular.
Lunch was included and was plentiful and tasty fried chicken rice veg etc.
