What people are saying about Palawan

Good pick up service, we were ready at 1700 as instructed when we booked then had a message to say it would be 1830 instead but not a problem. Van journey was comfortable and the guide was knowledgeable. The paddle boat guides found us the fireflies and managed to catch a couple for us to hold. We also saw the plankton light up as we returned to the shore. Unfortunately we couldn’t eat in the floating restaurant and went to another one in town. The food was fine but personally I would rather skip that part as it was quite late by the time we got there and the food wasn’t amazing but for the price of the tour it was perfectly acceptable. Overall good value for money activity.

no regrets for choosing this agency..tour was so great and with the group that we meet was excellent.. first booking went so well until the last tour that we book.. and we definitely book Gain..thumbs up

Amazing ung experience. At this time, medjo di pa okay ung mangrooves because of Typhoon Odette. Pero hopefully in the mear future pagbalik ko makakakita nako ng madaming fireflies.

Too much rain shut down underground but we still enjoyed a tour and the guides were great
