This was a really cool trip and highly recommended. First stop was where Jeepney's are made from the ground up. Great history on the Jeepney's and how they are customized per owner. The Las Pinas Organ was amazing and it sounded fantastic. From there it was off to Tagatay where we had a traditional Filipino lunch and then checked out the Palace in the Sky - amazing views of Taal Volcano and the lake. We even got to ride in a Jeepney up to the Palace! But the unexpected surprise was a stop on the way home at a small store that sold Civat Cat Coffee - coffee beans collected from the poop of the cat after they eat the coffee berries! What an experience!

I loved Tagaytay, I wish I had more time to spend in that area. I was on my own and there was no one else joining me on the trip so I was treated like a VIP. The guide and driver were very nice and helpful and the trip was exactly as advertised, the pick up and drop off were very smooth and on time. I enjoyed it very much and would recommend it highly.

The tour by itself I would have probably rate a 4 - very much as described Fun sights, great views - well worth it. The trip was made amazing by our tour guide, Rolando. Rolando's knowledge far exceeded the paces we visited he shared so much about Filipino culture, other tours we should consider, some pitfalls we might run into while working here, some of which I had already run into. He was able to answer any question we threw at him. We were an extremely small group due to the Manny Pacquiao fight that day, but there was never a lull in the conversation.

I wish I had done this tour earlier in my visit as I think it would have help with adjusting to living and working here.

During my time here, I did do two tours booked on viator.com where Baron Travel was the local travel provider the other was the WWII Corregidor Island Tour, also well worth it and Baron Travel made it as easy as possible. I highly recommend this method, especially if you are not travel savvy, like myself - all you have to do is worry about being at your pick up location on time, the rest is taken care.

AMAZING trip. This is a full fun packed day. All the stops are interesting and really give a flavor of different aspects of Filipino life and culture. There are so many fun things that you get to see on this trip. I would recommend this trip to anyone, hands down. Omar was our tour guide, and he is fantastic.

Neil our tour guide was very informative and funny, he had us all laughing throughout the tour. There were 12 of us total, 5 filipinos, 1 from Israel, 3 from Si gapore, 2 from India and 1 from Ireland. We had such a diverse mix, we were all in Awww, on the drive to Palace in the sky. Great tour.

We had the best time. Omar was the best tour guide and the driver was just as good. Our group was small and we all became friends. It was a excellent adventure and would recommend it to anyone.

Excellent day, very worthwhile and interesting. Plus, the bonus was the staff from Byron Travel that made the tour extra nice because of their friendliness.

The tour is a great way to experience different aspects of The Philippines, nature - the Taal Volcano, recent history - the Palace in the Sky, religion - The Las Pinas Bamboo organ, and the ubiquitous Jeepney.

We thought this trip was fantastic, although on the day the weather let us down a bit. Dale and Neil, our driver and guide, were brilliant. We felt safe in the Manila traffic and Neil's knowledge and commentary were first class. From the time of booking to the drop off back at our apartment was very professional and I would definitely recommend using Viator. Since this tour we have been on another one booked through Viator and were fortunate enough to have Dale and Neil again. Thanks to everyone.

This was a good day out, although it involved a lot of time in the minibus due to heavy traffic. We were picked up from the hotel at 0910 and returned at 1720. The visit to the church with the Bamboo Organ was very interesting, with a local guide showing us around. Next there was a visit to a Jeepney factory with time to take photos, followed by a visit to the deserted Marcus home where we had a drink from a young coconut. We then had a ride in a Jeepney, followed by lunch on Tagatay Ridge, overlooking the lake and the volcano. Lunch was nothing special, but there was a wide choice available. On the way home we had a free sample of the renowned coffee, made from beans which have passed though the intestines of a civit cat. No-one on the tour was very impressed, but we were glad of the opportunity to try it! A well-informed guide and an interesting day.

Had a nice trip outside the city to see a beautiful area. Luckily the haze lifted by lunch time, and it was a great view of the volcano and mountains. Appreciate the included lunch, and the fact they let you choose from several entrees. I was fortunate to have my guide from the Manila city tour. Omar, with me again. He is a fine gentleman, and a wealth of information about the area. The bamboo organ is so unique, and a national treasure for the philippines. Only negative is the traffic, but we had an experienced driver who got there and back safely.

OUr tour guides and drivers were excellent on this tour. I felt that we saw many great places with Richard. He gave us a mountain of information about Manila and the local areas we were exploring. I would think this tour is a must. The views from Palace in the Sky were amazing and when we stopped for lunch a group were singing in the resturant. The views to Taal Volcano and lake incredible. Then we moved on to San Ferdinand and interacted in the museum and church where the Las Pinas Bamboo organ are housed. A lovely lady played the organ for us which was very special. I loved this tour. We began at Raffles hotel which was an experience in itself. Our driver was so patient in horrific traffic and we enjoyed our drive as much as the tour. Thank you
