    Half-day tour to the small islands that are within the close perimeter of Cebu. My tour guide was Josef and he was a very nice guy. Main theme is snorkeling and you will observe colorful fish, octopus, starfish, etc. (Note: Bring your own food if you don't like sea food.)

    I was worried at first because I hadn't received any word from them for a few days after booking but apparently their office is closed on the weekends.
    The trip however turned out to be wonderful and well organized. Roy was very knowledgeable and informative as well as personable. He kept us on track and back to the port right on time. This tour really hits the highlights of Bohol I would definitely recommend them.

    I would also recommend bringing a wrap of some sort for the ferry ride because it does get quite cool in the cabin despite the heat outside:-)

    We took this tour the day before 2022 Election. Our driver was Mar, and he met us promptly at 8am and got us around to the different spots with absolutely zero concerns from any of our party. We were self-sufficient in navigating and understanding the actual attractions, but if you are really into understanding what you are seeing then paying for an additional guide would be recommended.

    The Fort was closed due to the Election, and as it was a Sunday the guitar manufacturing was not operational (but we did get a very competent tour of the shop by the proprietors). We did not go to the Taoist Temple - I don’t know why, it just didn’t happen. This, combined with us not lingering over lunch, meant that we finished the tour by 3pm which was plenty long enough.

    The Temple of Leah and Tops Lookout are at the one stop, so is the Cebu Heritage Monument and Yap Sandiego House, and so is Magellan’s Cross and the Bascilica. Our party liked the Temple, Lookout, and Flower Garden the best.

    Lunch at the House of Lechon was good - 500P per person was plenty of money for us, and two vegans in our group were able to find plenty of vegetables and fruity drinks.

    Awesome experience at the whale sharks! You get to swim with them for about 30 minutes but be prepared to compete with 15 other people on your same boat.

    Tumalog falls got canceled because it was rainy it was too slippery. However we found out from a different tour guide on a different day that tumalog falls is actually dried up at the moment and even showed us videos of the dried up falls :(.

    Pescador island for snorkeling was AWESOME! Best snorkeling we have ever encountered. The marine life here in Philippines is just so so healthy. However, we went during a rainy day so the waves were extremely choppy. Because of that, we were not able to use boats to get to the reefs, so instead we swam!! Omg I feel like we swam for about an hr in choppy waves so it was extremely exhausting!

    After seeing the reefs, we swam to the sardine run, where the waves were choppy as well. After we were done my legs felt like jello (and I feel like I'm a pretty okay swimmer).

    Great trip! Driver was waiting for us at exactly 5 a.m. Drove to Moal Boal where we received a briefing of the boat trip which made 3 stops for snorkeling. The sardine encounter alone was worth it plus we saw about 5 sea turtles. One young man on the boat crew was amazing. We rented a GoPro and was nice enough to take some amazing videos for us. The only glitch we experienced was at the first snorkeling spot we realized they didn’t have enough gear for everyone. They fixed it real quick by contacting another boat and they arrived within minutes with the gear. Like another person commented, recommend renting fins for 150 pesos. It made the snorkeling more enjoyable. After Moal Boal we went to canyoneering at Kawasato falls. We ate a local lunch included in the tour and it was delicious. No stomach issues after the lunch. We were then transported via motorbike to the starting point. Instead of hiking another 45 minutes we elected to pay an additional 500 pesos per person to zip line to the starting point. Highly recommend the zip line. The canyoning tour was great. All the guides were happy and playful yet helpful and professional. Our guide Danrib was amazing. He carried my wife’s iPhone the whole way took spectacular photos and videos. We ended up getting back to our hotel at 8 pm ( Mactan). Our driver was very polite and professional (Mr. Toto). Things to consider: we didn’t eat any breakfast and I think that helped with our stomachs during the boat ride. Recommend bringing a waterproof bag. The boat is open and when hitting some waves it’s almost guaranteed everything will get a little wet or totally soaked. Where sunscreen. For the sardine portion recommend no life vest so you can dive down into the sardine swarm. Be prepared for a 10 minute motorbike ride at the canyoning place. They put both of us on one bike. I was nervous but my wife seemed to enjoy it. Recommend bringing a change of clothes. You can change when done with canyoning. They have a place where you can change. 3-4 hours drive back to Mactan wouldn’t be comfortable when wet.

    Overall the tour experience is amazing. I just don’t like the delay in the tour confirmatiom. I know it says the day before the tour but heck I contacted the email, phone and Whatsapp the entire day for us to get a confirmation regarding this trip. For someone who wants to know the tour deatils/itinerary (if possibe) 24 hours before for peace of mind, they confirmed around late afternoon. I know they’re busy but there’s many ways to inform guests ahead of time like scheduled email options.

    Kuya Josef the driver was already waiting at the hotel lobby before the call time. Travel is smooth and we were able to buy some pasalubong at Carcar. Once we arrived in Oslob, our tour guide Miss Che is very friendly and accommodating, she told us about our itinerary for the day while waiitng for breakfast. Entire experience was great but the last part, we’re very sad 😔 We did not even get to see the Island of Pescador because of what The driver said is that the Moalboal tourism changed the cut-off time. (And the tour agencies were not imformed of thscvery important detail???) We arrived there around quarter to 3PM and we never made it. We have no idea! I mean if we were inform right about any cut-off time, we should’ve been managing our time well. Should this be the job of the tour guide? I guess so. Our tour is good for 4 beautiful locations in Cebu but we missed out on the last one which We are looking forward about. Not expecting any compensations but yeah I don’t even know what’s their protocol for this. It’s not in the FAQ. We decided to go back to the hotel instead. 😞

    With that last part being a major bummer, still there’s room for impovements. You guys we put our full trust in you to provide us the best tour experience, and it kinda lacks on that part. We don’t need an apology but when such things happens that messes up the itinerary of your tour guests, the driver can’t even contact their boss or manager, he offered alternative like snorkelling activities but really I don’t think that’s an equal offer compared to Pescador Island experience. You must have a Plan B, D or even heck up to plan F. Anyway thank you.

    Our experience with Cebu Tours was for the large part very positive. Our driver picked us up promptly at 3.30am from Mactan and we had an uneventful, albeit rather long 2.5-3 hour drive to Oslob. On arrival we had a lovely breakfast of mango and sticky rice and met our guide for the morning part of the tour: I think her name was Annalise. She was to be with us for the whale shark watching and tumalog falls visit in the morning. I would say our experience with the guide was the biggest disappointment for us. Her English was not ideal and communication was difficult. Even when we asked basic questions there wasn’t really an answer except ‘yes’ or ‘it’s ok’. This was rather frustrating as we were surrounded by multiple other couples and groups who had booked with Cebu tours, all allocated guides who were conversing with them regularly, keeping them up to date and most importantly educating them on the area, the whale sharks, the falls, the history of it all and the details of the day. In the end we made friends with another couple who allowed us to ask their guide what we needed but once we were at the whale shark encounter we were once again with only our guide. We were moved from group 47 to 53 without any explanation. She was unable to help us when we enquired about buying wet shoes and when it came to directing us to the boat, there was no direction at all and we nearly missed our boat and sailing out altogether! The experience itself if breathtaking, truly wonderful to swim with the sharks. Our afternoon guide was Tony for canyoneering. My advice, if you’re going to Kawasan Falls, do the canyoneering! I was definitely Nervous about the jumps and activity but it is all doable and for any of the jumps, small or big, if you don’t want to do them, there is always an alternative route so don’t worry. Tony was fantastic!!! He helped us throughout, so much fun and took some really fantastic photos of us with our phones. He was particularly attentive as I was nervous and assisted me well during the tough parts!

    We had such a great time in Bohol! First class service all of the way! Leila met us at hotel and took us to the train station. Once we arrived in Bohol we were greeted by Bing and we were off. Bing was very knowledgeable and a local to the island. Our driver Fidel was quiet but cracked a few smiles throughout the day. The Chocolate Hills were amazing and the Tarsiers were so cute. Our mini river cruise with lunch was delicious and it was neat to meet the Ati tribe. We really enjoyed our special one day tour and would highly recommend this company.

    You do get to see the Whale sharks, it's all a bit fast and really crowded. All the boats are in a circle and they are fed in the middle so they get close enough for you to see. They only feed them in the morning to encourage them to also forage on their own. They also have a marine biologist monitoring them, but they are still altering and conditioning them even if partialy.

    This was an excellent adventure, from the drive to the start, everyone was very accommodating.
    Charlie our driver was great.

    Albert our Canyon guide was the best. He let us proceed at our leisure. Was there to snap photos for us.

    The canyoneering was great, the water beautiful and the falls were awesome.

    So glad we added the zip line. That was very cool and a must.

    We highly recommend this trip.
