    4.5 - Excellent

    Just finished the second 20 days of the 40 days tour of the Philippines with Luke and John and it has truly been an amazing experience! I've met super friendly and like minded people from all over the world and will definitely travel with Free & Easy in the future! This tour gives you the opportunity to experience so many incredible destinations all over the country without the stress of managing your own transport and accommodation, it's also exciting not knowing exactly what's​ planned for each destination (island hopping, beach Olympics, karaoke, etc!!). The accomodations were mostly very nice for a backpacker's budget and travel days could be long but flew by because of the great company! Would highly recommend traveling with this tour company as the whole trip was chill, exciting and super fun!! Also, my tour leaders Luke and John made the experience all the more fun with their awesome personalities!!

    Last day before going home from the 20 Day Philippines trip 'Of the beaten path'.What a memorable trip it was.Met incredible people from all over the world, got certified for open water diving( was my dream for a loooong time), got to party on the boats, hop remote and incredible islands,eat some of the yummiest local food and did/saw so much more. It is almost impossible to describe it all. Only way to understand and know what I mean is to try it out ;) Leaders Luke and John went beyond and above to make this trip unforgettable. They also were literally our guardian angels

    Here is the last day of my 20 Day Philippines 'Of the Beaten Path' trip. What a great time, beautiful country and amazing people both local and in the our group. Some life long memories were created especially on Alternative Island. Our group leaders John and Luke went above and beyond to keep us excited, entertained, happy and save. Would recommend to anyone who is interested in exploring Philippines. - Andrej A.

    The 20 day Philippines with John and Luke was fantastic. It my fourth FNEZ trip and it still provides me with a sense of bliss and excitement. This trip had a load of beautiful waters, amazing islands, great scuba diving, and wicked group members. Saw a good number of destinations in only three weeks, covering a few different styles of locations from touristy to backpacky to isolated perfect beach hangouts. Would recommend. 23 out of 23 stars.

    Just finished my 20 day Step Off the Beaten Path with John and Luke and had an unbelievable time. Each location was unique in its own way, the water was so clear and blue, drinks were cheap, sun was hot and I was able to share it all with 25 new friends. Philippines has been the most beautiful country I've travelled to thus far and the filipino people are so kind and helpful. I would recommend this tour if you're looking for a more laid back tour, there was many beach days and free time to do your own thing which I enjoyed. Thanks for an unforgettable time FNEZ (John & Luke), I was able to travel stress free because of you!

    Had an amazing time on the 20 day off the beaten path tour with Luke and John. We got to see the most beautiful breathtaking places and had two awesome friends showing us the ropes. Island hopping, scuba diving, pool parties what more can you want! Memories that will last a lifetime and new friends to share them with.

    Just got home from the 20 Days Philippines Trip with John and Luke and an amazing group! I'm from Switzerland and was so happy to spend these three weeks with lovely Canadians (and Australians, a German and an Irish). I had so much fun during the boat days and the places we went to were breathtaking. We discovered beautiful Islands and enjoyed family dinners, karaoke, partying, drinking, dancing, laughing... I had the time of my life and met people I'll never forget. The leaders we're adorable, funny, always here for us, helpful and entertaining! I loved this trip, and I am very sad to leave the Philippines.

    Philippines was such an amazing country. I did the 20 days beyond the beaten path tour. The locals were incredible. They were so welcoming and thankful for you visiting their home. Beaches were spectacular. Clear blue water, white sand, amazing landscapes. It's complete paradise. Experiencing all this while making new friendships was priceless. I will be returning again one day without a doubt!
