We used Manila Stay Tours for our trip to Tagaytay and the Taal Volcano for a day trip. We chose this tour company as we did not want the hassle of haggling with taxis, tricycles, and boats across the lake. The tour company served its purpose for that as we did not have to haggle at all and rather paid one price for transport for the entire day.
However, the tour states you get a guide. That is not true as the driver did not act as a guide in the typical sense of the word. He told us where to get our boat and told us where to have lunch but he did not give us information about the area, trip, history, etc.
The driver was on time to pick us up and the car was very clean with working seat belts. A positive in our eyes! He drove in a way that would be considered aggressive by Western standards but is the norm for The Philippines. He knew exactly where to go and did not get lost at all.
The really disappointing thing we saw from our driver was when he threw a giant plastic bottle out the car window as we drove up the winding road to Tagaytay. We normally tip everyone if service is normal and we would have tipped this guy. HOwever, b/c of his littering, we did not tip at all.
