What You Can Expect
Arrive at majestic Pagsanjan Falls, where you’ll be served a refreshing coconut drink before taking a scenic boat ride on a banca (native dug-out canoe). Enjoy this exciting ride as the boat is skillfully maneuvered upstream by two expert boatmen.
Journey through the narrow and verdant Pagsanjan gorge lined with rocks, canyons, waterfalls, lush tropical vegetation and abundant wildlife. Dock at a natural pool below the falls and take an optional raft ride to a hidden cave, where you can swim and explore.
After spending some time at the falls, return downstream by ‘shooting the rapids’ – your boatmen will steer past huge boulders in churning waters at top speeds for a fun, exhilarating ride!
When you get to the visitor's center, enjoy an elaborate display of Philippine culture as you dig in to a buffet of traditional Filipino dishes. During your meal, enjoy live music played by a local band. Afterward, you’ll be taken back to your hotel.
the actual trip to the waterfalls is superb,
the tour operator provided lunch, this they don't need to both with
THAT WAS PERFECT!
I even tried Balut.. and they show you around Laguna
We also got to try Lambanog!
Definetly 5 *****!!!
Our guide was very knowledgeable about all the different areas we went to on our way to the falls and the falls were amazing. Definitely recommend making a visit to them if in the area.
Long way to go, but a fantastic expierence with a wonderful boatride.
The drive to the falls takes about 2-2.5 hours. The guide will talk the whole way be prepared. The trip up and back on the river takes about 2 hours and is fantastic. You will get wet. Take a towel, change of clothes and shoes. Suggest lunch after the boat trip so have a big breakfast.
The offered tour here is considered a VIP tour from the tour company in the Philippines. It is a really convenient way to book a tour to Pagsanjan, and the tour would be just for you and your travel companions--essentially a private tour. The included meal is a nice way to end the river ride. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable (he was a retired history and literature professor of the University of the Philippines) about the local towns in Laguna as we made our way to Pagsanjan, and the resort staff where we boarded was very attentive.
For travelers on a budget, and not minding if there are others on the tour, it would be cheaper to contact the tour company directly. For a small group wanting a private tour experience with an included meal, this price here is still a bit pricey, but worth it for the convenience.
Long drive because of traffic , but beautiful river canoe ride and falls was spectacular
We were not given enough information prior to our tour regarding the fact we needed to be wearing bathers and thongs as we would be getting wet on the tour. Also the boatmen tried to rip us off by telling us they wanted 1000 pesos each as a tip and another amount for the other guy who towed the canoe on the first stretch of river. We had already paid for the tour and thought this excessive, especially as they expect you to buy them drinks and lunch as well. The actual scenery on the canoe trip was wonderful and the dexterity of the boatmen getting us through the narrow parts of the river and over the rocks was amazing.
