Overall a great experience. I think it was a bit more expensive than others but our hotel pick up was on time and our tour guide was great. Once you get there you have the option of caving for 200 pesos a person (which was very cool) there’s a few tight squeezes and a little bit of easy climbing with a harness and some steep staircases but it was definitely worth doing. otherwise you just sit and wait for your group to go caving and come back. At the top of the caves you can zip line down or choose to walk back down. You can book the zip line as part of your package but you can also just pay while you’re there. And it might even be cheaper just to pay when you get there. It cost me 250 pesos to zip line in the superman position or I think 150 in the seated position. Then you drive to the river and take a boat to the landing area and see some monkeys and giant lizards the size of Komodo dragons. Take your boat tour which was amazing. Thousands and thousands of bats everywhere sleeping. And a few flying around. Everyone gets and audio tour which has interesting info but I found it kind of annoying because instead of enjoying the complete silence of the huge underground caverns you have background music playing in your ear the whole time. So I had mine out for half of the tour. There’s restrooms at every area so don’t worry. But maybe bring your own TP. You will be walking in knee deep water several times so wear flip flops or sandals. Definitely no running shoes. You won’t need them there isn’t any difficult hiking involved. All in all a great experience. Our guide who’s name I will definitely spell wrong (shy, Shai)? Was great. Very funny and good English. Definitely a must see if you’re here!

Very good and muddy day

The representatives of Corazon were at their best and made every effort to switch from a disaster to one of the best tour I ever had. The tour was almost cancelled due to the bad weather but the agency offered instead of a boat tranffer that was not possible due to the coast guard regulation a jungle treck of 4 km each way from the warf to the underground river. Echo and Michelle were very good and attentive during the whole trip even the treck is extremelly difficult especially while raining.

Hello! Thank you for sharing your experience with our Underground River Tour. It was indeed unfortunate that the boat ride to the park was cancelled due to poor weather - the tour would have been easier that way. But we are glad that despite that, you were able to enjoy the alternative that we offered. I'm also happy that our tour guides was able to live up to our promise of an informative and fun activity.

Add said all park permits and fees are included in tour. When we got to the park we had to pay an additional $18 dollar fee. Only people from Viator had to pay.
icon Response from Host , Nov 2019
Hello, Thank you for sharing your experience. Our listing includes all fees for the tour EXCEPT for the Puerto Princesa Environmental fee which costs about USD 3 per person. Since guests have the option to either pay this at the Underground River tour or Honda Bay Island Hopping Tour. The fee being collected by the guide during tour is clearly written on the description of the activity. If you have already done the Honda Bay Tour and you have the receipt of the Environmental fee, you will not be billed for it again. We are sincerely sorry that this was not relayed to you prior, but you may check your voucher about this, or the email we sent you prior to the tour. Happy travels!

Awesome tour! Josh, our guide, was very amusing and knowledgeable. The Ugong Rock activity didn't seem as much during booking, but it certainly paid off! The constantly talking boat driver inside the cave was very annoying (noise is prohibited); no fault of the agency though.
