Day 1

Arrive Philippines

Kumusta. Welcome to the the beautiful Philippines.

Once you have cleared all customs procedures in Manila, collect your luggage, then head towards the exit of the terminal where your English-speaking driver will be waiting to chauffeur you to your overnight hotel. Due to COVID-19 regulations, entry to the airport is not allowed for non-travellers.

Before checking in, our local representative will welcome you and answer any questions you may have.

Breakfast included
Overnight in Manila – you can choose your hotel and standards below.

Day 2

Manila - Bohol

Welcome to your first morning in the Philippines! After breakfast, you will be greeted at your hotel for a transfer back to the airport, where you will catch an early onward flight to Bohol.

Once at the other end, again, you will be greeted and transferred to your hotel, where the rest of the day will be at your leisure.

Breakfast included
3 Nights in Panglao Island (Bohol) – you can choose your hotel and standards below

Day 3

Bohol Island

After breakfast, you will be greeted by your local English-speaking driver and guide, beginning your day with a visit to the Chocolate Hills, so called by their similar appearance to a box of chocolate. Comprised of more than 1260 formations, the Chocolate Hills cover over 50 square kilometres.

From there, journey by quad bike through this phenomenon for an insight into the local Bohol residents. If you are lucky, you may spot a Carabao (Philippine water buffalo).

Next, your guide will take you on a visit to Pangas waterfalls through a path between rice fields and villages. Please note that the road is not always in the best condition, so you may have to walk the last few meters, but it’s entirely worth it!

Enjoy lunch by the banks of Loboc River. Take advantage of the various other additional activities available here with the local vendors, i.e. kayaking, paddle boarding, and zip lining.*

The day’s last stop will be a visit to the Corella Tarsier Sanctuary. This is the only protected centre that controls its management and the awareness of its visitors to preserve the species of tarsiers. Take a walk through the forest to meet them before heading back to your hotel.

Breakfast and lunch included
*Additional activities not included in package price.

Day 4

Balicasag Island

This morning travel with your English-speaking guide to the island of Balicasag, a small marine reserve with two spectacular and well-preserved snorkelling spots.

The Balicasag Marine Sanctuary offers some of the best snorkelling and diving in the Philippines. Swim with crystal clear visibility among the most beautiful coral and small fish species, before heading to Turtle Point, a turtle reserve that lives peacefully in the ocean’s depths.

Our guide will prepare a small brunch before heading to Virgin Island; as its name suggests, it is a virgin island with stunning beaches and absolutely no permanent infrastructure. If the tide is low, you can take a walk and enjoy its photogenic views, but if the tide is high, the island becomes a floating restaurant. This afternoon, sail back to Panglao at your leisure.

Breakfast and light brunch included

Day 5

Bohol - El Nido

At the arranged time, you will be transferred by ferry and car to Cebu airport to catch your onward flight to El Nido.

Upon your arrival in El Nido, your local English-speaking guide will welcome and accompany you to your hotel, where, depending on the time, you can check in before exploring El Nido and its surroundings. Your guide can suggest places to visit. This is, without a doubt, one of the best-known destinations in the Philippines.

The rest of the day is at leisure.

4 Nights in El Nido – you can choose your hotel and standards below
Breakfast included

Day 6

El Nido Islands

Around 8:30am, be collected by your local English-speaking guide for a tricycle ride down to the town’s pier. Today is a day to discover the wonders of the Bacuit archipelago, where the uninhabited coves and impressive lagoons can only be visited in a traditional sailing boat or Kayak.

The day’s first stop will be the Big Lagoon (Laguna Grande), which, if you are lucky, you will be among the day’s first visitors to enter it. Our local suppliers manage the permits before your visit so that you can enjoy by kayak or boat, depending on the water level upon arrival.

Continue to Matiniloc Island for a swim at the Hidden Beach, a beautiful beach protected by its great rock walls, before enjoying a snorkel at Kalmong Beach, where the crew will prepare lunch using fresh local products.

After lunch, enjoy some snorkelling at North Rock, a well-known spot for divers, before heading to the islet of Cadlao, one of the most beautiful and pure spots in El Nido. Enjoy the glorious turquoise colours and its waters before returning to the town of El Nido, where the rest of the day is at your leisure.

    The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade highly recommends travel insurance for all overseas travellers. Click and Trip supports this recommendation and provides information on available policies, how to buy as well as other pointers.

    Travel insurance protects against unforeseen events that could prevent you from travelling. Please don’t delay! We encourage travellers to book a policy after receiving their personalised documents. Travel insurance is normally covered from the day of purchase. In other words, you’ll be protected from incidents prior to departure, depending on your coverage.

    At a minimum, your travel insurance should cover cancellation, medical and repatriation expenses. It should also include personal injury and accident, death, loss of personal baggage and money, as well as personal liability insurance.

    Credit card companies and reciprocal medical coverage agreements do not always include comprehensive insurance. To learn more, talk to a recommended travel insurance provider or read our terms and conditions.

    Absolutely. Please indicate any special requests like bedding, dietary, or medical requirements on the confirmation page. We’ll do our best to accommodate your needs. Some airlines require advanced notification of dietary requirements, while other hotels limit capacity for rooms or suites. Please note that we cannot meet every request though we’ll do our best to make a memorable trip.

    Majority of the islands are not wheelchair accessible, which precludes wheelchair users and very limited-mobility travellers. Please get in touch before booking to check your exact mobility requirements. Travellers should be reasonably fit to participate in all our trips. As always, please consult your doctor for all health enquiries before booking.

    “From prices” are the best prices available within a calendar year; they’re generally based on two people sharing a room in the low season. Prices may be subjected to additional fees.
