Review of Fun 10-Day Nature & Adventure Tour Package to Bohol, Cebu, El Nido & Puerto Princesa Palawan

My life and business partner, Tim, and I had a great time! I booked a 10-day tour through Guide to the Philippines. At first, I just felt that handing over our precious holiday to someone else was a bit uncomfortable, but we are so glad we did! This team of passionate professionals did everything they could to ensure we had an incredible holiday! The tour itself was extraordinary. We traveled to Bohol, Cebu, El Nido, and Puerto Princesa, beautiful places here in the Philippines, where we got to partake in some great activities like island hopping, folk dancing, lunch while river cruising, snorkeling, volleyball, kayaking, swimming with whale sharks and feeding monkeys; possibly a bit too wild, as we also bolted on all of the additional extras like mangrove boating, zip lining, and hiking, but that was more us, biting off more than we could chew but we don’t regret a thing! All the staff, from the airlines to the hotel and the tour itself, even those I only talked to through email whenever I have questions, are outstanding at doing their job! They took care of us like we were friends for a long time. To share why I need to have this vacation, I struggled to produce creative thoughts for the past few months (March to April), and I had to postpone some of my plans due to my lack of motivation to accomplish many important agendas. During the vacation, however, after doing some cleansing, grounding, and centering works in El Nido and thanksgiving offerings to nature (we are animistic), both during our easy and free time and a 10-day business with a leisure getaway, I'm always fired on by ingenious and innovative thoughts. And the thing is, I don't feel drained and exhausted physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. I can still work early in the morning until evening without checking my pulse to see if it is still beating. And everything I do is yielding positive results! I'm more than happy than ever! Knowing how a tour like this can help you escape challenging times is incredible. I actually like this routine and my newly gained stamina. I'm just amazed by myself now. So once again, thank you, Guide to the Philippines, for giving us such an adventure! I'm planning to take my whole team to El Nido next year, so I expect we will book another tour through your site!
