    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!

    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.

    A company's comedy of errors but not so amusing at all ! A month before, I reserved and paid for 3 people in our group. A few days later, I notified them that I want to add a 4th person and was told that I can pay for the 4th person on day of tour. Due to a medical emergency, the 4th person was not able to come and 4 days before the tour I notified Cebu Tours to cancel the 4th person. This cancellation was confirmed by the office. Unbeknown to me, she sent a message asking about the 4th person's name which I did not see right away as I was on other day tours. The day before the actual tour day, I received a message that because I did not provide the 4th person's name within 48 hrs. of the tour, I should pay the full Tour fees of 3,500 pesos for that person and I was asked to pay the driver upon pick up ! REALLY !!!
    First of all, I cancelled the 4th person on a timely basis ( 4 days prior). Secondly, if the information re: 4th person was so urgently important to charge me the extra , they could have texted me ( I had provided them with both my local cell # and international cell #, Hotel info. etc.).

    Then, the driver was an hour late to pick us up at our hotel without notification or phone call from the driver or the company. We were ready by 5:00 a.m. but were picked up at 6:00 am and therefore ,missed our scheduled ferry boat for Bohol and arrived late. When we got to the Bohol ferry dock, we were met by a courteous but sort of nervous driver who was not really scheduled to pick us up and then told us that we may miss a few stops of the tour itinerary because we arrived late ( not our fault ,of course). It didn't appear then that we would join any tour group or bigger tour van. We had a driver but not a tour guide !

    The final straw of our horrible day was when the driver told our group of 3 that the company did not give him the money to pay for our Lomboc cruise lunch (part of the tour package we pre-paid for ) and can we please pay the cost ourselves ? Now, that definitely was not acceptable!!!

    We missed the Python place and another Church in the schedule. Even though we drove up to the Chocolate Hills, we didn't see anything because of the foggy weather. The curse of being late ??

    I cannot believe that a Tour company in a major tourist area can be unprofessional and unorganized. Needless to say, I was very upset and the circumstances had really ruined my day early on.

    I would not recommend this tour company at all for any future reference. The only reason I gave 1 star is because our Bohol driver was nice enough and really, the fiasco was not his fault.
