My husband and I did a four day/three night private tour of Banaue/Sagada in February. We found Filipino Travel to be very professional and the trip was very well organised. Marie (in their Manila office) was very friendly and helpful, and our driver/guide, Joey, was extremely good - excellent driver and very knowledgeable not only about the places we visited but about everything in the Philippines. The van we travelled around in was very comfortable and this was just as well, because we spent a long time in it. The journey from Manila to Banaue is very long (around 10 hours). We were a little unlucky with the trip in that it rained the whole time we were in Banaue and we had to miss the excursion to Sagada because my husband was ill. Nevertheless, the Banaue Rice Terraces are definitely worth a visit and were still spectacular despite the rain! Hopefully one day they will build an airport nearer Banaue so one can avoid the ten-hour road trip. Filipino Travel currently has an edge over most of its competitors in that it offers more flexibility in its trips and it also compares reasonably well price-wise. However, we thought that the cost of the trip was still fairly expensive for what it was and that the company must be making a fairly hefty profit margin. Because there is little real competition it can do this, For the moment though this is probably the best option. We did not try out any of their other tours but would do so if we returned to the Philippines.
