What people are saying about El Nido

My wife and I had such a great time on this tour! Cyron was our guide and he took care of us very well, and even found a secluded shore for us to eat lunch on. Spending the extra money for a private tour was worth it, in my opinion. Would definitely do it again!

Sylvain is a very knowledgeable, funny and cool guy. He is also an excellent chef! We thoroughly enjoyed our time onboard sailing and our island stops where we snorkelled, swam, walked on the beach and relaxed. Merci Sylvain!

The different locations and that there was enough time for every spot to take pictures, have some drinks etc.

The private tour was great. Friendly guide, good food, many activities

It was beautiful! And really well organized. Highly recommended.
