Hi, thank you for your feedback. We appreciate it. Not sure what is the P1000 you paid in Kawasan, but the entrance in the falls is already included in your package. You might have added a half way canyoneering (not full course). This is the usual price if you add it on site. You should have let us know cuz we have cheaper package for that. Anyway, hope to see you again in Cebu .

Yes you have to set your alarm for 3am, yes there was a bit of waiting around and a long drive but well worth it, to swim with the whale sharks was an absolutely amazing experience and something I will never forget. Guides and drivers all very helpful...a must do.

Whale of a time

This tour started in the wee hours of the morning. Joric whisked is down to Oslob while we snoozed in his well maintained comfortable vehicle. We were met by our guide and a light breakfast then taken to see the whales sharks. The line was incredibly long due to extra Coronavirus checks. Our guide got us ahead in the que and passed through the briefing just as they had closed all ticket sales due to bad weather. Once on the water the sea was rough but the boatmen were great and took photos for use while the whale sharks were incredible to swim with and watch. Bad weather hindered the sandbar expensive and got a good soaking on the ride back. Had to skip the additional beach due to weather but the falls were great. Overall recommend this trip highly and the guides were fantastic

Will you get what you pay for?

Very beautiful, Merlita the guide at the whale sharks was a very good guide. Although we got stuck on the sandbar our boat came and got told we had to wait for another boat (another 40 minutes) and missed out on going to the first lot of falls. It was very disappointing so we only got to go to kawasan falls. Our guide there was terrible I had my mum and our guide was a young girl and she just took off and walked so fast no one could keep up with her even me I'm 6'3 with long legs. Would I do it again. Probably no I'd probably try get there myself somehow and stay there so I don't miss things I have payed for! I rarely leave bad feedback but when I've payed money for 3 people to see something we didn't get to see I thought it's not right

Hi we are sorry to hear about what happen on that day. May I know the lead guest name and the tour date so we can check and trace who the tour guide in Kawasan falls was and we can inform her about this so we can avoid this in the future. Again, we sincerely apologize about this.

Amazing tour, long journey

The tour was great and a lot of fun, but beware IT IS A LONG DRIVE!! Overall, we were gone for over 17 hours as they don’t tell you to expect traffic on the drive home. That said our driver, Nelson, and our tour guide, Noel, were both amazing and made our experience great! Swimming with the baby whale sharks was absolutely incredible, and the Kawasan falls are breathtaking! Going with a group of friends, our only regret is we wished there was a bar stop! The most convenient part of the tour is not having to figure out where to get your tickets or get in line, but the waiting at each destination definitely needs some work! Overall, great tour, just prepare yourself for a long day!

Hi, thank you for your feedback, since you are getting a hassle free package, then we arrange everything for you and we line up for the tickets in your behalf. About the bar stop, since Oslob is very far from the city, we pick you up too early for the reason that whale sharks operation will be closing as early as 1pm. And also you have to visit Sumilon island and Kawasan falls which is more than an hour away from Oslob. Maybe a water break for few minutes while on the way is possible (some guests will request our driver to do this) but a bar stop for maybe an hour would delay the activity on that day, so yes please consider that this will be a very long trip, however, you can sleep in the car while travelling. ;) Again, thank you and hope to see you again in Cebu.

Fantastic Tour

Swimming with the whale sharks is something I'll never forget. The tour was very well organised. The tour guide (Edna) and driver were lovely and very efficient. As others have described here, I'd advise taking a change of clothes and some aqua/water shoes. One of the best tours I've been on and I'd recommend this to anyone heading to Cebu.

Amazing

This trip exceeded my expectations, it was an amazing experience. The driver picked us up directly from the hotel and dropped us back there after taking us to all the locations. The driver Richard and tour guides Juliana and JB were great and made the trip very enjoyable. Swimming with the whale sharks was something I don't think I'll ever forget, I was a bit concerned about if this activity was environmentally sound but they had a marine biologist in the water monitoring the sharks safety and strict rules against touch or harassing the sharks which made me feel a bit better. The water falls were absolutely beautiful and I even got to do some cliff jumping at Kawasan falls! Overall would recommend to anyone.

What we weren't expecting was how incredible the falls are. Tumalog falls is breathtaking to see but the highlight of the trip was Kawasan falls. Swimming in the gatorade blue water under the falls was fantastic! Our tour guide was so well organized and friendly! We made a new friend on this trip!! She was great!
