    first of all, i give props out to all guides that do this kind of thing. it cannot be easy trying to entertain a different group of strangers every week with enthusiasm, energy and an authentic happiness about it. i’ve been on plenty of tours in different areas of the world and most guides are human which means at times they can be grumpy or tired or irrated, etc... (especially with my group because i travel with this really annoying italian - hahahaha) THEN THERE’S CHLOE!! i don’t know how but she was not only helpful and crazy educated about where we were (palawan, philippines) but also super excited each day morning and night and really set the vibe to make approx 20 different people from 7 different countries have the best time ever. i’m still having palawan withdrawals. all this and i know she had been doing these tours for consecutive months so she had every right to have a bad day if she wanted. well, she didn’t even come close. she’s like super human positive energy girl. and she can even sing great and do the backpack kid floss dance thing!!

    Absolutely incredible experience. Chloe is full of fun, experience, information, and the best kind of person to have leading such an exciting adventure! All of the staff in the accommodation and visited sites were very friendly and I always felt comfortable. Wouldn’t change a thing, would happily do it all over again 10 times!!

    Dereck has been a fantastic, energetic and fun tour guide. The tour has shown me places that look like paradise and also creatures that I have always wanted to see and made me aware of things I can do that I didn’t know I could do, such as climbing a coconut tree! I would recommend One Life and specifically to Dereck to anyone interested in seeing the Philippines

    • Carlos4th June 2018
      Was very pleased with the ease that I was able to understand, and navigate your website. Have actually been looking at several other tour companies, some have played phone tag with me. Others have not bothered to return calls. Their websites have been difficult, to work and understand. Am super excited to be working with you. Am now working on finding affordable airfare. Thanks again. Looking forward to a wonderful adventure. Have already been giving several friends your info.
