    Overall I felt that wanderlands look to save money sometimes to increase profit, which negatively impacted the tour experience for example, not flying from El Nido which meant two long travel days and the accommodation in Bohol was too far out of the centre! My recommendation would be to spend a little more money on flights/accommodation to improve the experience. That being said, the tour was great, we had a great group and our tour guide was fab, the experience wouldn’t be anywhere near as good without him!

    Hi Charlotte. I believe we've already spoken regarding your feedbacks :). Thanks again for taking the time to share it with us, we'll make sure to take it into consideration for our next tours. From November we'll be back in Boracay which should not be an issue anymore as well ;).

    We had a great small group and Jastwan is an excellent guide who kept everything running smoothly throughout the trip. He has lots of local knowledge and it was good to travel with Someone who can tell us so much about the local culture and life. We were a small group and this gave us the chance to make a lot of decisions re places and times to eat and additional activities etc which was a real bonus and Jastwan knew all the best spots. Couple of negatives were the massive travel days. Wanderlands clearly trying to save money by taking horrendously long travel options rather than direct flights. We lost two full days of the tour to this type of travel which could have been better spent. The other massive negative is the hotel ‘StarSky’ in Bohol. It’s a fair distance from town with nothing without walking distance so transport is required every time which gets quite expensive and limits people a bit. The service at the hotel is also very poor and whilst breakfast is included it’s so bad that not a single person on my tour ate it and we ended up having to take transport to the beach to eat at places there which is all extra cost. A real let down compared to the fantastic hotels earlier in the trip. The sea cocoon in El Nido was really excellent. Those things aside though I really enjoyed the tour and swimming with the turtles in Bohol was a real highlight for me. If Wanderlands can fix those travel days by just taking the direct flights then it’d be getting 5 stars!

    The tour itinerary was amazing, we went to all of the best places! Jastwan was incredible, really knowledgable and shared lots of his countries culture with us. We couldn’t recommend him enough. However, Wanderlands scrimp with flights which results in cutting out a big amount of your time through travelling the long way to get to locations. Especially Puerto Princesa to El Nido this was a full 12 hour day! The location of the alternative hotel in Panglao was a little out of the Centre and although very comfortable it is a faff with getting tuktuks to the beach. It also limits flexibility for the group as you tend to go back and forth from the hotel together as the tuktuks are pretty expensive too. For me their was the right amount of relaxation time on the trip as I was looking to explore and relax, but I do think that there could have been more activities in certain places. My favourite part of the tour itinerary was definitely the whale sharks, swimming with turtles and the island hopping day in El Nido! There was no part of the tour other than the Long travel days that I wouldn’t recommend! I just think that Wanderlands should review the travel days to maximise time and limit grumpy travellers!

    Had the best time on this tour! Jaswan was a great tour leader, was always there to help with questions and made the tour good fun even on the long travel days. The travel days where a bit long and took up the whole day would be nicer to fly from El Nido to Cebu instead of doing then 5 hour drive twice. Other than that really good tour and I will recommend. Thanks

    Daniel Silva was an awful guide, childish, selfish and completely disrespectful especially towards the females on the trip. I felt hugely uncomfortable many times in his presence

      Booking was really easy! The options were displayed clearly and I was able to filter. I especially liked that they recommended a travel insurer because I've never had to get travel insurance. No hassle experience and now I'm ready for my tour!
