Dean "I was really lucky to have an amazing group of people which just made the experience that much better, the tour itself though was incredible. Jastwan was brilliant and is such an interesting guide. Really knows everyone on the Islands. One of the girls had bed bugs in one of the hostels and couldn’t be moved as they were full. Jastwan swapped with her and took the hit, if that’s not going abov..."

    Accommodation was not bad, but could have been better. Eg: stained linen in Manila, Borocay location could have been closer to the beach, Moalboal basic but ok and El Nido was lovely. Transport could have been improved by using direct flights instead of... Read more

    Dear Lauren, thank you for taking the time to share your detailed feedback with us. Wanderlands Travel prides on offering the best experience possible and so it is always welcomed and important to us to hear how our guests have experienced their tours with us. We are sorry to hear that there were a few things on that particular tour that were disappointing for you. Our tour leader has been with the Wanderlands family for a while now and was a tour leader in Bali before moving to the Philippines. All reviews from his tours have always been excellent so far. Still, we take your feedback seriously and will use this as an opportunity to improve our tours and group leader trainings even more. Please be ensured that we will speak to the group leader about the comments you brought up. We always aim to find the right balance between a range of different activities and enough free time for our guests and found that our current itinerary reflects that. Regarding the cooking class: We are sorry it got cancelled, but we have decided to remove it from the itinerary due to the level of quality not being to our standards. However, we found that most people really appreciate spending more time at Philippine's beaches, since they are amongst the most beautiful beaches in the world! We thank you for being part of our Wanderlands tour and hope that you will always remember all the fun you've had :)

    Hi Stefanie, Thank you very much for taking the time to give us your feedbacks. The accommodation you're mentioning has been a problem due to availabilities in the hotel we usually use. Unfortunately we had to replace it last minute and this was the best we found. So this was a temporary solution. Regarding the long transport, we mention it very clearly in our itinerary so our guests know what to expect. Please be sure we took all your feedbacks into consideration and it'll help us to improve our tour. Thank you for joining us, we hope to see you next in Fiji ;).

    Hi Olesja. Thank you very much for your feedbacks. The accommodation you're mentioning has been a problem due to availabilities in the hotel we usually use. Unfortunately we had to replace it last minute and this was the very best we found for a group as big as ours. So this was a temporary solution. Regarding the long transport, we mention it very clearly in our itinerary so our guests know what to expect. Please be sure we took all your feedbacks into consideration and it'll help us to improve our tour. Thank you for joining us, we loved having you with us again and we hope to see you again soon ;).
