What people are saying about El Nido

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.

Amazing experience. Pick up transportation from Puerto Princesa to El Nido was smooth, driver picked us up from our hotel at the exact time given and got us there safely after a 5 hour drive. Tour guides Jason and Nathan on the Marielle boat really put an effort in making sure we enjoyed the tour. They were very friendly, accommodating and our family enjoyed our conversations with them.

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.
