We just went to Mt Pinatubo last week from Tarlac. The guide, driver and 4x4 and fees were all arranged by a rep from the hotel. Before we went all the questions were answered by the hotel we overnight in before the tour. We left at 6am in the morning so it would be necessary to stay overnight before leaving. Sorry I dont have info about Botolan only from Tarlac, I would assumed the same and you can get info from the hotel. There isnt a separate place to pay the fees it is all done as part of the tour. The total package was between 2400 to 2500 depending on the number of people sharing the 4x4. Max of 5. All the fees included. You have to sign a disclaimer, have blood pressure checked if over 40yo and a medical clearance if 60 and above.
