I loved this sunset cruise experience! not only is it great to be out in the water, but the snorkeling over the coral reef was wonderful. I saw so many fish all colors and sizes. I wish I knew what they were. lots of folks took advantage of the kayak and the paddle board. there was a little misting of rain and we got to see a rainbow. I'm looking forward to seeing the photos. on the boat a guitar player serenaded us with some lovely songs. overall I think this is a must do!

Even though the pick up time was a little late this was down to other pick ups from the Airport from flight delays causing this, out of there control. The two drivers were very professional, spoke excellent English and really looked after us stopping for toilet breaks and a half way stop for a spot of Lunch...I would recommend anyone needing transfers in the Philippines to use this company.

Our guide Steven provided us very good and interesting overview of the history of Manila and Philippines. I really enjoyed this experience and I think it is the best way to get to know Manila’s history and to see historical part of it if you are staying in the city only for couple of nights, like it was in my case.

Justine our guide was very helpful on this boat-hopping tour. She made sure to check in with everybody. She accommodated people's wishes and ran the tour in a way that best suited the overall group. She looked after us very well.

Steven was great at summarizing the fairly dark history of Manila and Intramuros. The bike ride was easy and are constantly safe. Highly recommend this tour if you want a fun way to explore the city.
