What people are saying about Palawan

Tour B was amazing. At first we were apprehensive because many travellers, hotel owners, and people we met said tour B was the worst one and not very good. But, this is the best thing about tour B. There are very few tourists, only five people on our boat, beautiful destinations, and a lovely day out. After doing all four tours, we found tour B was our favourite compared the the other very busy, overcrowded, and commercial other tours. The only thing to note is that I wouldn't recommend booking online for these tours. El Nido is full of tour shops who offer these tours for a cheaper price with things like wet shoes, kayaks, and snorkelling equipment all included in the price. Every tour we went on that we booked online we had to pay extra to hire these things.

The tour was extremely well organized. Despite a slightly late pick-up we arrived well on time in El Nido. The boat company were great, we were told 5 stops and we got them. No rushing and ample time to enjoy each spot. The scenery is stunning and really good snorkeling and beaches. Lunch is cooked and served on the boat. They put a lot of emphasis on safety and we were well looked after during the day. Would definitely recommend this tour to everyone. Well worth the price and journey.

The tour was perfect! A great way to see the many islands. The tour guides were awesome and there was enough time to enjoy each location. I did package A and I really enjoyed it.

In a word, it's worth it. A friendly and helpful guide. Unforgettable views. It's worth it and even a must.

The 3 islands are fantastically beautiful.. clear water for swimming and great beaches.. heavenly!
