I would highly recommend taking this tour while visiting this area of the Philippines. The boat ride to Pagsanjan Falls was awesome and the scenery was beautiful. The boatmen do a hell of a job getting you to the falls and back. Kudos to them.

Even though it rained this was a very fun trip down the river to see the Pagsanjan Falls. The lunch that was included was very authentic and delicious as well.
I went on this tour as a typhoon was moving in, and I would still recommend it. The views as you go up river are stunning, and so much fun to go under the falls.
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.
Fantastic trip away from the hectic Manila! The falls are very beautiful! Don't miss out the chance to boat in the back of the falls:) On the way to the falls, we also stopped at some local vendors and tried out some local sweets, as well as the notorious balut! ohhh I had such a blast!
The entire trip was really good. However, the price is too expensive as the locals says with this price, you can pay for 2. Not forgetting you need to pay for the boat driver tip of about 10USD each.
it was different. It was very nice and relaxing and enjoying. Can cross it off the bucket list.
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
The tour guide and driver were super. The scenery was amazing and the food was good.
The tour guide had told us what the daily earnings were. We took this to be a hint as to what to tip the boatmen. We attempted to tip the boatmen a full days earnings each. The boatmen became aggressive and were asking for more. Its not a lot being honest and I wasn't concerned from a safety perspective but it just really left a bad taste in my mouth about the whole trip. I gave the feedback privately to Viator but never heard anything back.
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.
As a single traveller it wasn't clear I'd have to share up close and personal with a stranger - essentially sitting on their lap - this should be made clear as I wasn't comfortable with the trip. Also being stuck in the canoe in the same position for such a long time is quite challenging for older people like the man I was paired with - which wasn't made clear to him upfront. Value for money overall for me was very poor for what was provided - essentially a van ride, basic lunch and a canoe trip which you could see prices advertised locally for a tiny fraction of what was charged. Net the falls are definitely worth seeing but be prepared and I'd suggest arrange yourself
