    Since Nov 2020, high traffic stations at Recto Manila terminal and Cubao QC, some elevators/escalators still not operational. Climbing the 20 meter high stairs with a 5 kg load is a challenge for the elderly and disabled.
    Line have been extended this year with only six old coaches for the whole route. Waiting for 10-20 minutes for the next train to arrive is normal.
    Air-con cooling has improved because ridership is down because of the Covid 19 pandemic risks..

    On our visayan trip, used fastcat about 4-5 times in one month. Of all the RORO service in the country, this is the safest I’ve been. They are following the Marine regulations especially about safety of life at sea. They conduct life vest demo which other roro service doesn’t do at all. Two things I noticed that needs improvement. On our 1 hour trip from Bohol to Cebu, my son wanted to have a drink from the canteen but staff told me that I cannot buy any longer because they are doing inventory. Really? Inventory? On a 1 hour trip? Wanted to buy 20 minutes after departure but staff denied selling. Luckily another staff came by and sold me one. Another instance, on our trip from Bacolod to Iloilo, just before arriving to pier, staff alllowed a paprent to bring hos son to the car port. I estimated the child to age 7-8. When I tried to bring my child downstairs, staff didn’t allow. When askeds the reason, staff said it depends on the age of child if they will allow in the carport. Again really? Only drivers are allowed to go in the carport as per their policy.

    A big port south of the City of Manila engage in the carriage of people and goods directly to most of the islands in the archipelago. Large shipping companies make this port their home. It is easy to book a seat with the 500seater ships docked everyday. However, a glaring downside is the lack of clean restroom outside the terminal.

    My AirBnB in Makati was about a 10 minute walk from the Hulo Terminal so I thought the ferry would be an interesting & inexpensive way to get to Intramuros, Chinatown, etc. And it was.... almost. The fare was 30P and I waited about 10 minutes for the next ferry.
    During the ride I asked if I could go to the open bow for pictures and the captain(?) said OK. There were better views of the river and a bit of a breeze compared to the cabin which was a bit stuffy. There was not as much traffic on the river as I expected but there was enough to make the trip interesting.
    For some reason that wasn't explained or announced, the boat's last stop was Santa Ana which is less than half way to Intramuros. The Santa Ana terminal wasn't as "formal" as the Hulo Terminal and the neighborhood looked a little poorer.
    So I got off as directed and started following the other passengers. Less than 100 yards/meters away was (what I now know to be) the Santa Ana market which was a nice exposure to the local culture at a lower economic strata compared to the richer Makati CBD. After walking around the market I wasn't sure how to get to Intramuros so I walked up to a motor-trike driver parked in an alley and said Intramuros? He said "how much?" which was not the response I expected so to avoid prolonged back&forth I said 300 pesos (I could surely have done it for much less than that)... and off we went.

    Once you get used to the idea that for most journeys you will be crammed inside like sardines in a can, with little working aircon. Then the LRT and MRT become a cheap and fast way to cross the city. I often stay in Malate then use the LRT to EDSA if visiting MOA, or transfer onto the MRT if going to Mega Mall, or Trinoma. The journey time is a fraction of the time a taxi would take and the cost is minimal, just a few peso for a journey.

    We booked 3 activities through Guide to the Philippines to Boracay. We were hesitant on some of the activities since they did not have any reviews. We also booked it last minute and ended up having a wonderful time. Definitely hassle free experience. Thank you so much to staff for their quick and courteous service!

    I had pre-booked a driver to collect my elderly father from the airport in Manila. The communication via email during the booking process was awesome, and then it was above exceptional on the day the driver collected my father from the airport. There was an extensive delay at the airport due to some confusion from dad, and the driver waited patiently for him, while communicating with me via WhatsApp. The driver then collected my father even though he was very delayed and let me know he had found him and was taking him to his hotel.

    The service was above and beyond my expectations and was great value as well!!

    Beyond happy!! 5 stars for service and beyond!

    There's no exact words can explain how satisfied we were during our last trip in Boracay with the help of this agency.

    "What you see, is what you get." If you are looking for a cheap accomodation yet worth the budget and considering you have no idea on where to go, what to try, or just simply where to explore, then you came to the right agency. In terms of their accomodation, Hands down👌🏻 they are really giving the service that you are looking for. All i can say is, that we made a good choice on trusting this agency. Me and my family had so much fun knowing the fact that it was only a 5-day-vacation trip yet we made a bunch of memories that will surely be treasured forever. Thankyou so much CTPH, till next time. ✨

    Vagabond Pinas created a custom trip for my husband and me to see Banaue, Batad, and Happao rice terraces that suited our schedule and fitness level (60+). We were picked up from our residence and all transportation was provided by VP. We spent three nights in Banaue and Batad. Both home stays were comfortable, clean and welcoming with great views of terraces. JP, our Vagabond Pinas guide/driver/coordinator was a great guide and companion. We were very fortunate to get Jake, the local guide, assigned to our group.

    If given the opportunity, I would use Vagabond Pinas to explore even more of the Philippines!

    We live in Florida and my wife was originally from the Philippines. She decided one day we should visit the Philippines again but need a full service travel agent to service her. She wanted to have a car and driver at her disposal throughout her highly customized itinerary. She wanted to start out in Manila on our own then full escorted from Dumaguetti, Bohol. Puerto Princessa and finally El Nido. The trip went off smoothly despite the sudden eruption of Mt. Taal. It erupted the day we left for Dumaguetti. The agent had to scramble to rerout us so we can avoid the repeated flights back to Manila whose air port was shut down. As a result, we carried on with our planned trip and not miss a beat.

    In an Internet world a one can book a trip to anywhere online. But when the unexpected happens, you will appreciate having a professional on your side. I am grateful. Thanks Kenny. Victor Sim
