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.
a nice easy going day. the stuff was interesting but not remarkable. still, the guide and driver were very good and delivered as promised.
This tour was great! We did a lot of things on the tour, but it wasn and #39;t too exhausting. The tour guide and van driver werr both extremely nice and accommodating to all guests and #39; needs :)
Lovely views very informative cat poo coffee amazing tour well worth doing thank you omar
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.
We had a wonderful tour, and tour guide. Thoroughly enjoyed our day. The lunch was excellent, and more than we anticipated. Thanks.
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
Well organised tour which took us out into the countryside. Delicious lunch.
Great Day. Neil, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgable and accommodating of our group.
Amazing views and great food. We didn't get to see the bamboo organ due to a festival going on the week of my visit but the guide, Omar added some additional spots to the tour to make up for that. We went to a bee farm and the original Jeepney factory. Omar, was a great tour guide.
This tour was more than expected. The drive to tagaytay was nice. We could not see 5 feet in front of us at the palace due to the fog. The view would have been breathtaking had it been clear. Our driver was able to find a good spot down below for us to take pictures of Taal volcano.
The highlight of this tour was the visit to the Taal volcano. I thought we were going to miss the view because of cloud, but luckily the weather cleared just in time and the view was amazing. I also really enjoyed the lunch at the restaurant with a great view. A bonus extra was the visit to the Jeepney factory. My guide was very helpful and considerate of my age and health.
The tour was awesome and lasted all day. The tour directors were very cool and bought us tiny bananas, coconut pie, and coconut milk in the morning. We road in a jeepney to the Palace in the Sky, which was awesome, and just in time to see the Taal volcano come out of the clouds. Lunch was great and the volunteer tour guide who talked about the pipe organ was so excited about it that it made all of us even more excited! All that being said, there is a 0 chance of this tour being worth 187 for one person. As fun as it was, definitely would not do it again at that crazy price.
The tour was not very well organised - firstly they went to the wrong Tune hotel - also the day we went there was a local marathon being run - which the tour guide should have been aware of as the traffic was horrendous and we could not get up to the 'Palace' on our first attempt. The place we had dinner - Max's Fried chicken was disappointing - the food was dreadful - chicken was dry and there was far too much BBQ sauce which was too sweet and the desserts were not very nice either. However, the view from the restaurant was magnificent.
Too expensive for what is offered. I enjoyed the Taal lake and Las Pinas Bamboo Church. My problem was also that the guide had a more lacklustre approach to the tour and wanted everything to be over really quick, maybe because I was the only participant. I'm also uncomfortable with the situation that as soon as the driver and I were alone for a second, he immediately asked when I would leave Manila, what my flight was and if I needed airport drop off. When I said I already arranged it, he went on how much hotels charge for it etc.
The tour was pretty good, though nothing life changing. Service (vehicles, guides and food) were good and the attractions were okay. What I really hated was that if you book a trip for one person you pay twice the rate and yet they still put you with a bigger group. I don't think double the rate is justified and the trip is not worth it for that price. If your party has two or more people and you want a peaceful day where you just sit and look around at some moderately interesting things, go for it.
