Itinerary

 

Day 1 – Manila

Welcome to the Philippines! Upon your arrival at Manila airport, your group leader will be ready and waiting to take you back to our hotel. Today is about relaxing and settling in after that long flight, so hit the streets for some shopping or just head out to explore some of the local sites. We have a quick orientation talk then head out for a welcome dinner and drinks with the rest of the group.

Day 2-5 – El Nido, Palawan Islands

Bellies full, we board our first flight of the tour and make our way to one of the best islands in the world, Palawan. As soon as we land we will travel by private bus to El Nido, which will take around 5 hours – trust us, it’s worth it! Once checked in, we’ll head out for a feed and a few beverages as a group and check out some of the coolest beach bars in El Nido.

El Nido is home for the day and this coastal settlement boasts clear waters, jungle, steep limestone cliffs and stunning caves and we’ll head north for our first dip in the ocean!

The Philippines is famed for its many beautiful islands and today we’ll island hop! We’ll spend the day on our local boat whilst stopping off at some truly stunning beaches, as well as the ‘small and big lagoons’ which are some of the most picturesque places on the planet!

Our final day in El Nido is about catching your breath and working on your tan on a stunning, white sandy beach decorated with coconut trees. If sunning yourself isn’t your thing, you can head out and get a massage, hit the shops for some retail therapy, or simply explore all of what El Nido has to offer.

Day 6-8 – Moalboal, Cebu

R&R over, it’s time to get on the move again as we board another quick one-hour flight to Cebu. From Cebu, it’s a four-hour drive to Moalboal, which is our home for the next three nights.

Rested and refreshed from a good night’s sleep, we head deep into the hills of Cebu to visit some of the Philippines’ most beautiful waterfalls. Cool down in the crystal clear waters of Kasawan falls. We jump in and cool off in these stunning lagoons and get some pictures that will make your friends back home seriously jealous.

On our final day in Cebu, we head out for a truly unforgettable experience – we jump in the water to swim with the huge (but very friendly) whale sharks. Bring your underwater camera, as trust us you will want to remember this forever. After we dry off, it’s back on the bus to Moalboal where we will snorkel with thousands of sardines on their “sardine run” – this will take your breath away!

Day 9-12 – Boracay

Arriving by evening in Boracay, we will all enjoy dinner together before heading out to experience Boracay’s crazy beachfront for a night of partying and good times! You can’t beat a party on the beach!

Today is for full-on beach vibes, so grab yourself a beer or a fancy cocktail, lounge about or even play some beach games in the sun for a while, as we all enjoy this stunning setting, which has been listed as one of the worlds best beaches!

On Day 11, we head out on our very own local sailing boat to explore around the beautiful island of Boracay. We get the chance to discover some hidden beaches and snorkel in the blue quartz waters while enjoying one of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. In the evening, we enjoy our farewell meal and party, which is the perfect way to end an unforgettable tour!

It’s time to say goodbye and end our unforgettable 12-day trip! After check out, your group leader will sit down with you and help plan any onward travel.

My partner and I have just returned from our 2 week Swiss Explorer trip and cannot have had a better time. The whole trip ran so smoothly from start to finish. This includes the answering of questions or concerns that we had before we left, the train journey's themselves, the excellent accommodation which we were placed in and finally the additional extra's and sight seeing opportunities which were provided on the trip itself. We will definitely be recommending Euroventure to our family and friends who also have the 'travel bug' and are already planning our next trip ourselves.

I had the best time on my two week trip around Europe with Tom and our group, everyone was so nice and Tom never failed to be knowledgeable and helpful with whatever questions we had for him. All the included activities were fab and everyone seemed to enjoy them! I have done a group tour like this before and I think the itinerary of this one worked a bit better for a large group. We had more free time to explore on our own which meant everyone got to see all the things they wanted to in each place rather than everyone having to do the same route and visiting sights they didn't have any interest in. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone whether travelling alone, with someone or even in a little group as we had all of these on our trip and the group dynamic was great! Thank you Tom and everyone on our tour, you all made the trip a great one! :)

150,000 British nationals visited the Philippines last year and had trouble free visits. All of the islands you’re visiting are safe areas and are well and truly on the tourist path so you’ll certainly meet other travellers in your tourist destinations.
