    • Please provide the name of the hotel where you will be staying.  If your hotel is the Astoria, or located close to it.  Be Advised that it is outside of the pick-up zone and a Private Transfer will have to be added to your booking, which can make the tour Package expensive
    • Please provide your Arrival Date, and Flight Time and your Departure Date and Flight Time.

Save time and hassle and book 3 Tours in one booking with our Underground/Honda Bay/ Firefly Watching Combo Tour for only 5,160PHP per person  !!!

One of the things our travellers have told us is that they would have preferred if they could book all their tours under one booking reference.  Whilst our system does allow this through the 'Add Tours & Book' tab on each page, we have obliged by also introducing the ability to book 3 tours in one here.  This is for greater convenience only and does not offer any savings when compared to booking tours individually.

How to Book: Just select the date when you will arrive or plan to start taking the tours and then tell us, on the 2nd page of the booking form what date and time you will leave. This information will help us to set the best itinerary for all the tours for you.

Please provide the name of the hotel where you will be staying and the names, DOB's and nationality of everyone in your party (for the Underground River Permits)

Other Disclosures

Visitor Limitation Policy: Early Booking is a must for any bookings which include the Underground River Tour (at least a month prior to arrival) to avoid disappointment, as there is only a very limited number of people, per day, given Permits to visit this natural wonder.

This limitation was made in an effort by the local government to lessen the environmental impact that humans may bring to the natural habitat of endangered species which are endemic to the Underground Cave and surrounding Park.
