Agnes, our local tour guide, was kind and helpful. She always looked out on us and made sure that everyone's well. Though the queuing in Sabang going to the Underground River was exhausting, as our tour coincided with a cruise ship's tour, we were offered an alternative to make the most out of our time while waiting. We went to Sabang Zipline which I would say was actually more enjoyable than the Ugong Zipline. The view was superb and majestic. When we got back at the dock, we still waited for around another hour before going to the Underground River but at least we were able to visit somewhere else. Just imagine if we're just there all throughout! So we commend Agnes for being proactive at that. The queuing at the actual site of the Underground River didn't take that long already, it only took us around 15 minutes waiting time to get inside the cave. At least better compared to hours of waiting at the dock.
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 underground river is definitely a must-see if you happen to pass by Palawan. It is gorgeous and very well taken care of. Didn't get the massage part. On the way back we stopped by a smaller local attraction where you can do some caving (its optional). I didn't do it because I got so sick from the van driving (which is the worst part of every tour in Palawan).
We were waiting for some guests for quite a while before we were able to set off and there is also a long queue getting into the undetground river but the tour guide explained it beforehand and we were all made aware of the itinerary.
Our tour guide, Ms Dyane is very kind and informative. We really enjoyed our trip, ate dyane took a lot of nice pictures of us at the underground river. Thank you Corazon travel and tours! All your staffs are wonderful!
