    4.0 - Good

    Really loved the Philippines. Trekking through the rice terraces and camping at Mount Pintabu was amazing. Bryan our tour leader was also fab. But less impressed with intrepid the trip notes aren't up to date with some of the details and you get less meals etc

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • December 1, 2016

      What level of fitness is required for trekking on this tour?

      This is an active tour, and the trekking will be on narrow paths through steep rice paddies. A good level of fitness and balance is required, as well as a pair of shoes with good grip. But the guide will assist by providing a walking stick, and I'm sure the views will be incredible

      Just wondering if this tour is more suited for young people

      Intrepid tours are open age, so their tours can include a broad-range of ages for any tour, at any time. This tour in particular involves some energetic activities, steep walks and for some of the tour, the accommodation will include mutlishare rooms and multishare bathrooms.

      I'm trying to find out if I need to have Japanese encephalitis injection and whether anti. Malaria tablets are required for the rice field trekking as its a rural area.

      Unfortunately TourRadar is unable to give medical advice due to the vast number of destinations and passengers we book. Each traveller is different and may require different vaccinations. I have attached the Trip Notes here which have a bit more info in the "Health" section, however we always reccommend contacting your family physician for the most accurate account of what you may need while travelling.
