What people are saying about Puerto Princesa

Our guide Kyle was very passionate about his job and had a great amount of knowledge about the area! Our bus arrived on time and was comfortable, it picked us up at our hotel and dropped us back there after. The tour duration was from 7am to 5pm and because there were different activities if you didn't sign up for them all you were waiting for other people in the group to do them (you could choose to add on activities at the time if you wanted). We booked the combo tour of the Underground River and Firefly Watching tour but they were separate tours which was not communicated to us beforehand. Kyle contacted the company to ensure we wouldn't miss the Firefly tour bus after we raised it. Overall, the tours were worthwhile!

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

I was busy all day with experiencing unforgettable moments! Underground river is a must (watch out monkeys). Firefly show was lot of fun followed by amazing dinner on a boat!

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