It’s more fun in the Philippines because Filipinos often smile without any reason and it’s contagious. They have the natural sense of happiness which makes tourists love the Philippines and the people as well.

It’s more fun in the Philippines because the people are honest and friendly. In general, they may be one of the poorest, but would give the shirt off their back to a complete stranger. That is true hospitality! Filipinos are also a musically inclined people. Most people jokingly say that karaoke singing is the national pastime.


  • Explore ‘Intramuros’, the Walled City in Manila. Once the fortress built by the Spanish to protect their soldiers and families, today it offers a glimpse into Spanish colonial life.
  • Survey the extensive Banaue Rice Terraces. A UNESCO World Heritage Site these terraces date back 2,000 years and follow the contours of the hills for kilometre after kilometre.
  • Visit the intruiging hanging coffins at Sagada.
  • Enjoy the mountain resort city of Baguio – the cooler climate (1,540m above sea level) has been a refuge for many a traveller over the centuries.
  • Marvel at the astounding Puerto Princesca Subterranean River (another UNESCO World Heritage Site). Take a local boat through the limestones caves and caverns as the river makes its way to the sea.
  • Relax on the beach with a health massage with a soft breeze cooling your body and the gentle hands of a Filipino rubbing your stress away.

Fantastic, Mandy went out of her way every day to check up on everyone, was very inclusive and informative. An excellent leader, strong and direct.

Mandy an exceptional tour leader. A lovely caring personality. Always fun.

Mandy did a great job of meeting the needs of a disparate group. We enjoyed her roadside walks and ability to keep us amused with stories, jokes, crosswords, etc.
