    The ride down to the falls is on a motorcycle. Or you can walk it. My advice. Pay for the ride up and down the hill. A few pesos and it's well worth it. The falls are incredible. Water is crisp and cold. Not deep, but still have a great time swimming around. Plenty of places to do photography work. Bring extra clothes to change in or just dry off naturally. This is one of the best places that I've seen. You can also rent a small hut for a afternoon lunch break or just hang out in. The people are super nice and friendly. Definitely worth while trip. Don't miss out on seeing the falls. Well worth the drive and the scenery is awesome.

    The church and ruins in the centre of town are certainly worth having a look. We enjoyed walking around.

    It is just one of our stopovers in oslob while we went whale shark watching. It is quite interesting basing on the age of the structure. For me it looks a bit like Colosseum in Rome Italy, a mini version of it.
    Also near their old church and the sea. It's still worth visiting.

    Apart from getting off the thin main road dodging buses, it was nice wander through some history of Cebu and quite a surprise.

    There’s not that much to go or see in Oslob so this is definitely a highlight.

    It’s straight coastward from the main intersection with 7/11 about 2minutes.

    There’s s little museum nearby worth s perk but it’s tiny.

    I was curious how the cemeterys look like. I just walk around and spend 10 min here. The tombs are over the ground .

    AJ's Place did an excellent job organizing and overseeing our day tour. Our driver arrived early to begin our day and was always there, ontime, waiting to take us to our next venue. The greeting staff at AJ's Place were friendly, well organized and knew exactly who were when we arrived. They took care of everything, from standing in line-ups to secure tickets, walking us through orientations, and seeing us off on boats and motorbikes. We didn't have to worry about a thing except enjoying ourselves and having a great time. For anyone looking for a "hassle-free" day tour swimming with the whale sharks, viewing Tumalog Falls and enjoying Sumilon Island, I would highly recommend AJ's Place.

    Our experience with this tour company was seamless! Janilo, our able, on time and safe driver was courteous while our guide Liehbeth was cheerful, efficient, knowledgeable and quick to get us on the boat past the line.

    Our request to upgrade the vehicle to an SUV and to have the boat in Oslob all to ourselves to make it a private ride to meet the whale sharks were met. The minimal extra fee was worth it!

    It was also a pleasant surprise that they prepared towels, goggles and a delicacy meal for us. So with this tour company no need to pack anything else apart from your change of clothes.

    The long drive to Oslob and back to Cebu city was definitely worth it!

    The staff of the dive center are excellent!
    Very impressed with the dive masters that lead our dive and the support from the whole team. The equipment was all well maintained and we experienced no problems. The dive with the whale sharks was incredible and we got a lot of beautiful underwater photos with these majestic creatures. Loved it, highly recommended!!!

    Very well organised, they are feeding the whale sharks to be sure you are swimming with. The only thing is- you are waiting very long to go on board- between 1,5 and 3hours. But is fantastic when you are in the water between this gentle giants.

    The main attraction, one of the main reasons why you visit Cebu, these majestic beasts are definitely worth the hype. Just be mindful that the place is really popular.

    Good day I used your services this past Monday and I will say i highly enjoyed myself...might I add that the hidden price to charge foreigners an extra 500 it's pathetic as well as it should NOT be hidden! This needs to be said on your website which may deter people from using your services...also THANK GOD I took a friend that was local because he was able to assist me in not paying extra! Every tour I did mv driver tried to make me pay for after I already gave him 8800 pesos! Just because I'm not local doesn't mean I'm rich!! You ain't gonna get into heaven ripping people off for a living!

    Great pick up and drop off, great transport vehicle, whale swimming excellent, boat photographer excellent, Mona my your guide very helpful and nice, boat to island was fun, island incredible, Mona took great photos, lunch nice but more vegetables would be better and a fresh whole coconut. Also need to give people a set menu option, some may be vegetarian etc. Mona did great job transferring photos from go pro to my phone. I wasn't given option to go to waterfall but paid for this. They took me home without asking which I'm very disappointed about. Later that night i checked the itinerary and remembered about the waterfall. Very disappointed about this as it's a 3hr drive one way to destination and waterfalls are my favourite. Tour guide should give customer a itinerary on arrival.

    We were their first customers. I was with my wife.
    The experience was really great and very memorable. We availed of the Whale Shark Watching + Tumalog Falls + Sumilon Island Day Tour. Our guide was Bars. He was really great! Very knowledgable of the place. He gave us some trivia about the place and the whale sharks. As their first customers, they gave us whale shark keychain and magnet.
    After we swam with the whale sharks, we were brought to a shop to buy souvenir items. We had great photos with the whale shark encounter. The boatman took very good photos!
    Sumilon Island is a very beautiful island with its pristine white sand and shifting sand bar. The amenities were nice.
    I highly recommend OTG Travel & Tours for your whale shark tour.
    Thank you very much for the amazing experience.
    We will definitely avail of your service next time, hopefully with our friends!
