Went on a Sunday day hike/trek to Treasure Mountain with my friends. Guide to the Philippines’ operators are very accommodating and kind. The driver Kuya Coco who picked us was on time. Our tour guide kuya Gio was very supportive and took a lot of pictures of us. Even though it was raining during our trip they made sure that we will enjoy our day. Our tour was supposed to have a Daranak Falls side trip but due to the volume of people (more than hundreds) we decided not to push through, Kuya Coco and Kuya Gino gave us an alternative and brought us to a resort but we didn’t think it was worth it to spend thousands more for just 4-5 hours of stay so they brought us to Cloud 9 instead which we really appreciated but we were too tired to trek/walk anymore so we just went home. Even though our trip was cut short the efforts of the team can really be seen throughout the tour duration and because of this we will always choose to book with GTTP. 😍

I had the honor to trust them with organizing my honeymoon and i must say it was the best decision I’ve ever made. They planned the whole thing from A to Z and they made an itinerary exactly how i needed it and depending on my budget. The whole team starting with Jon and ending with Joymie were always there when i needed them. They even made changes to the itinerary on short notice and were very fast to reply. Cannot wait to plan our next trip again to the amazing Philippines with them.

Decided to visit Boracay with the family on short notice, just few days before planned travel dates. Guide to the Philippines efficiently came up with the best options for us to choose from. No hidden fees or disclaimers, the transaction was perfectly smooth - we chose a package, paid, and packed our bags.

It was a worry-free travel from the moment we checked in for the Boracay-bound flight, hopped on the sea transfer to the island and checked in our hotel, to the time we set foot in Boracay Airport again for our homebound trip.

Their affiliation with PAL also guarantees the best airfare deals!

I used to personally prefer booking directly with establishments instead of getting services of travel agencies. This has changed, all our future holidays will now be arranged thru GTTP.

This tour was terrible and disappointing. The driver was clueless and barely spoke English. He thought we were doing the countryside tour only, and not also Panglao Island. So he spent more than 30 minutes making us wait while he called his agency and then drove us to the agency. Then he took us to a strip mall, which was supposed to be in the tour but not open yet. Then he took us to a church which was closed for their lunch break. We were supposed to go to the butterfly place before the hills but he took us after. But they close at 4pm and were already closed. The driver was not a tour guide and barely spoke English. He didn’t have any information or knowledge about anything we saw. We were very disappointed. This is not worth the money. You can hire a local driver for $30-40 for the whole day to take you on a countryside tour.

I've booked packages and tours with Guide to the Philippines before so when I found out that they already have an airfare comparison feature on their website, I used it to book my flights to Bohol. I found a really great deal and booking was fast and easy, I prefer this better than checking multiple airline websites to find the cheapest and best schedule for flights. Will definitely always use Guide to the Philippines when booking my Philippine flights.

From the moment I contacted this company, I had a good impression. All of them, particularly Louisse and Joymie, were responsive through email and Instagram, and very accommodating when I had a COVID scare. I told them about my dream of getting a tattoo by the legendary Apo Whang-Od in Buscalan, and they went above and beyond to make it a reality. The attention to detail, seamless coordination, and warm hospitality made the entire experience truly special. They even checked up on me afterwards to get my feedback about the entire experience, which ended things in a very elegant manner. I highly recommend this company for anyone seeking a unique and culturally enriching adventure in the Philippines. Maraming salamat for making my journey to Buscalan a cherished memory!

Me and my mom and dad had a very good experience althrough out this trip, touring the major sights of Ilocos Norte and some areas of Ilocos Sur! From the booking process up to the sudden and last minute trip changes was kindly and patiently accommodated by the booking staff Ms. Pia Trishia! Hats off as well to our tour guide, Ms. Zamora “Zaza” Santiago and Sir Marcos “Macky” Mercado, our designated driver for a very much enjoyable tour throughout Ilocos, it made our experience all the more fulfilling! Thank you to all of the staff that made this trip a very memorable one. Will definitely recommend this agency and will be booking again through them. A job well done and keep it up!

Mithi Resort was amazing, it was very exclusive since it has it's own beach and even its own Island. The country side tour we got with our package was also very informative, I heard our guide Ms. Noralyn is one of the best tour guide on the island. It was a hassle free vacation where we can truly relax. I highly recommend booking with Guide to the Philippines for a hassle free experience.

My husband and I recently got married and to make sure our foreign guests made the most of their time here in the Philippines, we wanted to book a trip to Bohol with those who were open to it. All in all, we were 26 in our traveling party. It could have been complicated coordinating with different groups, most of whom were abroad during the planning stage of this trip, but thanks to Guide to the Philippines, we didn't have to worry about that. We were able to book flights, accommodations, and four day tours without a hitch.

Initially we were supposed to stay in a different resort, but when Guide to the Philippines realized we all wouldn't fit in that resort, they immediately made arrangements for us to stay in a different and better resort that could accommodate all of us, with no added charge! They even assisted our friends who stayed in Bohol longer than everyone else in our group.

Will definitely book our next trip to the Philippines with Guide to the Philippines.

The Guide to the Philippines Team has been very responsive to my queries and requests. They are courteous, transparent and forthcoming in their responses. When I experienced some issue with the service provider, they were quite conscientious in their investigation and sensitive towards the parties involved. They manage crisis situations quite competently. I highly recommend them to anyone who would like to explore parts of the Philippines for the very first time.
