Our driver and guide will pick you up from your hotel in Manila or Makati around 6am and head to the trail head in Santa Rosa, Laguna. Upon arrival, your professional guide will provide a short briefing and distribution of bike. The ride immediately starts after the briefing. There is a long gradual uphill pavement before our first major stop. A light snack of local food is served in Aling Pina's local restaurant, a favorite rest-stop of local mountain bikers in the area. We will then continue our Taal Volcano bike tour down to the town of Talisay, Batangas via Tagaytay-Talisay Road from Tagaytay Ridge. It is a 14-kilometer downhill road with the amazing view of Taal Lake.
Lunch is served by the lake in Taal Yatch Club. Scrumptious Filipino favorite food is served like Sinigang and fried fish. Boat ride is only 20 minutes. We will then proceed to trek up to the crater for around 40 minutes. Another option is to ride a horse but is not included in the package.
