Your transfer service will pick you up in your agreed meet-up point and take you to the town of Quezon, some 100 kilometers away from Puerto Princesa City. Upon arriving, you will be welcomed to the Tabon Museum prior to visiting the Caves. You will have an overview of the history of the Tabon Cave and the Tabon Tribe who once lived in the cave. You will also see some original and preserved artifacts here, including the famous Manunggul Jar, a Neolithic burial jar recovered from the Tabon Cave.
After a short museum trip, you will board a boat that will take you to the cave itself. Tabon Cave Complex is actually composed of more than 200 caves, seven of which are open to the public. This set of caves is famous for being the Philippines' Cradle of Civilization, as the American anthropologist, Dr. Robert Fox, discovered the earliest human remains in the country here. His findings helped Philippine historians trace the pre-colonial civilization in the late 1960s.
Upon arriving at the site, you will visit the Tabon Cave, one of the seven publicly viewable caves, where the remains of the Tabon Man were found. The place also features different rock formations and rare species of small animals that took refuge inside the cave.
Lunch in a picnic-style will be served to you after the tour. Learn more about the Tabon Cave and its significant role in the Philippines’ past when you book this Tabon Cave day tour. Check availability by choosing a date.
