Description

Visit the natural wonders nestled throughout Cebu province's islands through this 11D10N Philippine tour package. This trip is perfect for travelers who want to snorkel, go canyoneering, and swim with whale sharks. This Cebu tour package also includes flights, a 20kg baggage allowance, airport transfers, accommodations, daily breakfast, and three nature tours. Along with the set tours, you will also have the freedom to book an add-on tour for the latter part of your Philippines itinerary. 

Your transfer will escort you to your hotel in Manila after you arrive on the first day of your vacation package to the Philippines. The next day, you will board your flight to Cebu. Upon arriving in the province, another transfer will drop you off at your new hotel in Moalboal, your home for the next seven nights. 

On day 3, you will go on a private tour of Pescador Island as part of your Philippine travel package. During this excursion, you will go snorkeling to witness the popular sardine run and watch sea turtles in their natural habitat. Following your adventure, you will get to explore the province on your own or rest at the resort on day 4. For the fifth day of your trip, you will head out for a canyoneering tour at Kawasan Falls. 

The next day, you will be able to lounge at the resort or wander the nearby areas at your leisure. Then on the seventh day, you will go on a whale shark-watching tour in Oslob that includes a stop at the Tumalog Falls. To make sure you don't accidentally hurt these gentle creatures, please do not swim too close to them. Day 8 of this Philippine vacation package will also be a free day so that you can recharge and unwind. 

Please note that while your guide will help you spot these creatures on your tours, and it is highly likely that you will see them, encountering turtles and whale sharks is not guaranteed.

On the morning of day 9, you will check out of your hotel in Moalboal and will be transferred to accommodation around Cebu City. After settling in, you can visit the nearby spots on your own. On day 10, you may opt to book an add-on tricycle tour to Bantayan Island's best spots, such as Virgin Island. Finally, you will fly back to Manila on the 11th day of your tropical escape. 

Discover the stunning beaches, majestic waterfalls, and thriving marine life of Cebu province by booking this 11-day Philippine holiday package. Check the availability by choosing a date.
