Our guide Joel was great. He was always in a good mood and had a lot of information for us. The food during the boat trip was delicious and there was something for everyone (buffet). Would recommend the tour to anyone who only has one day for the island of Bohol. The entire process with ferry, hotel transfer, etc. went smoothly.

your guide Mon is a very knowledgeable person. Even with our broken English we managed to communicate well. My was attentive, listened to us and very available. We appreciated his kindness and your professionalism. I highly recommend it. The driver was also very attentive and drove very safely.

Our trip included church visits, Tarzier watching, Chocolate hills and a floating lunch on the Loboc river. Coy runs a well oiled machine with all events times to perfection but she also has time for more personal touches too. The day was long but absolutely worth every moment!!!

Jessie our tour guide was excellent! He and the driver were very accomodating. Get your Guide is highly recommended when booking tours! This is not my first time using them. They are dependable and prompt!

It was an enjoyable day trip. Our guide Jojo made our trip fun & informative. The itinerary was packed but we didn’t feel it until the ferry ride back to Cebu.
