The evening Jack made me experience was simply fantastic. We were also accompanied by a group of French friends. So, we also communicated among ourselves in French, and thanks to Jack for being understanding towards the French who didn't speak English well. We started off slowly on the terraces of the tallest buildings in Manila in the Upper district. Then Jack took us to a more festive corner of the neighborhood where he could show his rock 'n' roll side 🎸🤘🏽 And finally, we ended up in a festive night spot. Thank you, and I highly recommend this tour!

We were unfortunate with the weather that we couldn't go to a few places but our guide Camille helped us make the most of it and we still had a great time. Loads of fish when snorkeling and tasty lunch, and great photos! Nice as a private tour as well where you have more choice on where to go and how long to stay at each location. Recommended!

Kenneth was an amazing dive leader - it was our first time and he perfectly judged how comfortable we were when doing the dive. He talked us through everything and made it a truly incredible experience. Highly recommend doing the two dives, we saw the elusive sea turtle!

Excellent tour. Had plenty of time in each place. The guides were amazing taking photos. Take a dry bag as you could be wading up to armpits but all part of the experience.

The guide reached out to make sure they didn’t leave without me. Very helpful staff.
