Overall rating

The whole trip was good even though we couldn’t go to the crocodile farm the tribe experience at the butterfly garden was amazing. Our driver and Guide were especially helpful and knowledgeable as well. We purchased the extra massage, which was okay but coming from Thailand and Laos I don’t think it was worth the price but if you want a relaxing massage go for it. I did love the use of the sauna and steam room for 30 minutes and the free iced Americano

The tour guide and driver were both very knowledgeable of the area and kept the tour interesting! We did the early morning tour which was a good way to beat the heat (as much as we could), but at least the van had great A/C. It was also perfect timing as we had a flight going out of Palawan late afternoon - they even dropped us off at the airport at the end of the tour!

Informative, helpful, entertaining visit to Puerto Princesa. Good explanations of the history of the place. Varied attractions. Half day just about right, given the humidity and heat. The guide and driver were friendly and pleasant. Well recommended activity.

Amazing tour guide- passionate about his work. Worked perfectly for us to see city while stoooed here on our cruise port. Much more reasonable than same trip on cruise ship!

Our private city tour was fun and tailored to us. We were able to see everything that we wanted to see in such short time. Weng, our tour guide, did an amazing job! ✨️
