    Before a tour starts you always have expectations and concerns around what it's going to be like and whether you are going to enjoy what is planned. You hope that your expectations are met and to have them exceeded is the dream. The past 10 days with One Life for me have been the dream. There are so many reasons why the tour exceeded my expectations, too many to put into words, but I'm going to try. One of the reasons is that so many of the adventures and activities we did, I could never of experienced as a solo traveller and am so grateful I got to do them. I don't think I could come to know and love the Philippines the way I do without having done them. Camping on a private island, hanging out at a school on a remote island and climbing a coconut tree are a couple of examples. Our guides Millie and Rose were passionate about the Philippines, and our safety and enjoyment were their main focus for the entire trip. It was the tone and energy they set from the beginning that allowed all 16 of us to quickly feel like a family and share an incredible 10 days together. 10 days that we will all look back and remember with big fat smiles on our faces. A special attribute of the One Life company is the culture they are creating around travelling. It was this culture and the values of kindness, love, growth and adventure that glued us all together and made the trip more than just a tour.

    I've had such an exception trip with One Life Adventures over these past ten days. There are so many highlights to mention; island hopping, cultural experiences, beach camping; but my personal favourite had to be meeting so many locals. Along the way, I really saw the positive impact that One Life is having on these communities; and it's certainly not just financial. The guides, Rose & Milly, as well as the travellers on my trip, were all such amazing people with a great attitude. As one of the girls said to me, she wishes she can spend her whole year as happy as she has been this past week. I think that's a pretty great way to sum up the trip.

    One Life have perfected this tour, the perfect mixture of culture, beautiful sites, nightlife and most importantly for me, giving back to the community whilst experiencing all that Palawan has to offer. I initially signed on to this trip after traveling solo for a few months and needed a break from planning and just thought this would be an easy way to see a bit of the Philippines however it was SO much more than that. I have made so many life long friends and memories that I will never ever forget. I've learned lessons I never imagined I would learn that will shape the way I live my life forever. Every day was the best day ever and I am actually genuinely upset to be leaving these fantastic people. I recommend everybody to do this tour - particularly with One Life as they care so much about the communities that they work within, which I know from personal experience is different to other companies offering similar tours.

    This was by far the best tour I've ever been on! One Life took me to some incredible places that I probably wouldn't have seen on my own. They help you see the true beauty of the Philippines all while helping the local communities along the way. So many fun activities like island hopping and camping on a secluded private beach, it's like having your own little piece of paradise. Milly and Rose made the trip one of a kind! Together they have so much knowledge and are eager and willing to help with any questions or concerns you have. They really make you feel more like family than anything else. I couldn't have asked for a more amazing group of people to share this experience with. It is a trip that I will never forget and would highly recommend to everyone!

    As far as group trips go, this was by far the best one I've ever been on! From the lovely places we stayed at, to the well thought out day planning & unique/special activities chosen-it is just soo good. Both of our tour guides Milly & Rose were fantastic, so warm, knowledgeable & just such a pleasure to be around, not to forget super Fun. It also helps when your tour group are so nice which mine were. We went to some real Untouched places which was just so special. Made some amazing memories & friends. 'One Life' was way more than i was expecting. No hidden costs-a lot included. Huge thumbs Up, would Definitely book with them again. Philippines has been so awesome, excited to use them for other countries too!

    11/10 rockin’ trip. One Life have nailed the ratio of excitement and relaxation. The entire experience was breezy and well organised. You never feel rushed or feel as though you don’t get to take in every little bit of the experience, the schedule for each day has enough leeway that you can really soak up every view, meal and person you come across. Ace taste of the Filipino culture, you definitely get to see and experience things you wouldn’t normally whilst travelling on your own! Milly and Rose are also out of this world — always helpful, always kind and always a good time! Great trip, great people!

    Fantastic trip, top class guides, what an experience! I loved every day of this tour and really appreciated the effort and skill of the guides in bringing a disparate group together and making it such a memorable experience. As an older traveller in my late 30's, I was concerned that this tour would not always suit me, but I was wrong. The tour was the right balance of party, experiencing new things and seeing phenomenally beautiful places. The Philippines has proved a great destination and one I'd recommend for everyone's bucket list - and do it with One Life - you won't regret it.

Questions & Answers

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

    • May 1, 2017

      What can you recommend if I already arrive in Manila 4 days before the trip starts?

      You could check out Intramuros in Manila, or take one of Smokey's Tours to see the underbelly of the city. If you would like to see something outside the city you could go up to Banaue or Sagada. Both can be done in a few days before meeting the rest of the group.

    • May 1, 2017

      Can you assist with pre-accommodation and airport transfers?

      We would definitely be able to help you with a pre night of accommodation, but sadly not with the airport transfer. Uber is readily available in Manila and is a good option to get from the airport to the accommodation. Your group leader will also be sending you details on how to get fro the airport to the city about a week before the tour starts.

    • April 1, 2017

      Can I complete the tour one day early since I'll be travelling back to the States?

      Finishing the tour early wouldn't be an issue, though you would miss out on the final day with the group.

    What are people saying about TourRadar?

    • Chris10th October 2017
      Tour Radar offered many choices all at one easy to use site. I found a trip that met my specific needs for both travel time to tandem a cruise already booked and with the itinerary I was looking for. The tour company was unknown to me so I called TourRadar and spoke with a rep about the tour company, specifically reputation, what was included and what to expect. My questions were addressed, I felt comfortable with the info given and booked the tour ! Thank you
