My tour group enjoyed every minute of our time at Motag. Very interesting and a great insight into how they lived in the past. Loved tasting the coconut and treats. Thank you for a great day, I will return with another group in 2020.

We booked via their FB page, just sent a message. They did come pick us up at our hotel and drop us off after. One of the best experiences we had in Boracay! Loved it and highly recommend it!
