It was scary to book a 5 day trip with no places to stay confirmed or a strong itinerary. And in the Philippines, communication is difficult. But that is part of changing mindsets to a rural island mindset. In the end, everything worked out. We...More

This is not an exorbitant commission on these boat tours. Most of the tours I organise are multi-day tours between El Nido and Coron, my commission making up less than 15% of the total price, the total price being much less than any of the...More
