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 your accommodation. 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 2-4 – Borocay

Bellies full, we board our first flight of the tour and make our way to one of the best islands in the world, Borocay. 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 food and drinks as a group and experience Borocay’s crazy beach nightlife.

On day 3, we are going beach hoping! Soak up some sun of some of the island’s most beautiful beaches, before heading out on a sailboat cruise. Depending on wind and weather conditions, we will do anything from snorkeling, sailing and taking a tour around the entire island by boat!

The next day, grab a towel and some sun screen and join us at White Beach. Put your feet in the sand and find a nice spot to relax before we meet for dinner at 7:30pm.

 

Day 5-7 – Moalboal, Cebu

It’s time to move on from Borocay as we board a short 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 8-12 – El Nido

After breakfast, we get ready for a long day of travel to El Nido. We will drive up to Cebu airport, where we catch a flight to Puerto Princesa. From there, it will be another 5-hour drive until we reach El Nido, where we will stop for a quick meal.

The long journey will be worthwhile, as El Nido boasts clear waters, jungle, steep limestone cliffs and stunning caves you simply cannot miss! After a long day of travelling, we will reward ourselves with drinks and a stunning views from a rooftop bar.

Day 9 is all about relaxation, as we’ll head north for our first dip in the ocean at Nacpan Beach! We will go lut for dinner and drinks as we get excited for the next few days.

The Philippines is famed for its many beautiful islands so on day 10, 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 Las Cabanas Beach. If you want a break from sunning yourself under Coconut trees, 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.

On our last day, 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.

From the moment we booked our week long trip with Goat, via Amy, nothing was too much trouble and she talked us through the process and made the whole thing a breeze. The van itself was clean, well equipped and very easy to drive. We opted for GOAT (Amy) to arrange our campsites and were presented with a personalised itinerary that was extremely welcomed as we were given all the information needed to glide in and out of the sites selected and we were not disappointed in anyway. I can thoroughly recommend this efficient operator without any hesitation. My deposit was returned within 48 hours without a hitch. We will use them again.☺️❤️❤️

I CANNOT recommend this travel agency enough! I booked a surprise honeymoon for my nephew and his spouse with Euroventure Travel Ltd. and their customer service is unparalleled! For reference, I live in the US and wanted to plan a multi-country trip via rail through Europe for my nephew and his spouse for their honeymoon. They helped me customize the trip, (3 countries) keep in a budget I wanted, and picked out some amazing hotels all within the city centers of their itineraries. I wanted the trip to include a a few countries, but I didn't have a huge budget, and they really worked with me to make this an amazing trip! We went through a few scenarios, trying to decide what would be the best itinerary for the time period and budget I was able to afford. It was great. There were a few times that I had simple (and sometimes complicated) questions regarding the trip and I would email the travel team in the evening and wake up to detailed responses in the morning. If I emailed during their working hours, I received an almost instant response from the team, not an automated response. I honestly felt like I was talking to a friend and not a travel company. I can't thank them enough for helping me plan an unforgettable honeymoon for my loved ones!! If you are planning a holiday via rail throughout Europe and need help planning, look no further, Euroventure Travel is the agency you want to use for your holiday!!!!!

I had the most amazing time on the Iron Curtain Tour! We managed to fit so much into the week, with so many great recommendations by our awesome tour leader. Any difficulties as a cause of current travel situations were resolved without issue, and I always felt safe. Euroventure tours are to the best places, with the best people, and I cannot recommend them enough. Please do yourself a favour and book with them!

I had an amazing time on the iron curtain tour which was well organised so I could see a lot in a short space of time. Our tour leader was great; very knowledgeable and made good recommendations in each city. I was also pleased with the quality and location of the hostels. I will definitely consider booking with euroventure again.

The Iron Curtain Tour I went on was a great adventure! Euroventure was responsive with communication and on the tour the hostels were wonderful! My group was affected by the pandemic closures, but we made the most of it and Euroventure kept us updated throughout the week. No issues during travel!
