        Not really worth the time or money
        Having just done Siargao a couple weeks previously and the island hoping there.... This was a let down in comparison. The boat crew were however superb Dan Rose 12, great crew. The entrance fee to the island is 350 peso per person we were a 14 crew party... The eating facilities are limited and we spent the first 20 minutes wandering around for a place to eat. Being told twice that the seats we rested at were not for eating at... No signage tho. Then for me, the islands main attraction so vehemently promoted... Cliff diving... The dive platform was closed due to safety concerns with the crumbling concrete structure.... I took a gingerly walk across the sharp limestone weather eroded cliffs n found my own spot to dive from... The seating areas near the outdoor bar tables are apparently only for photo taking.... As we were advised by a very polite security guard armed with a pump action shotgun... Very odd and again no signage advising of such restrictions.... Would I return.... Absolutely not..... Truthfully dont waste your time or money.... There's far better island hoping in Philippines.

        Amazing Cebu and Bantayan holidays arranged by experienced SYKE Travels
        Jan 2024 was the second time my group used SYKE Travels for our land tour of Cebu and Batayan Island. SYKE Travel arranged car transport during our week of Medical Mission in Cebu, followed by 2-days amazing sightseeing tour around Cebu City during the hectic Sinulog Festival. Jilo, the assigned driver/ guide, was fun, friendly, happy and informative. SYKE also arranged our Bantayan Island package and we had an awesome stay at the popular SMAKs Hotel where staff spoiled us with the best local food, tricycle tours and swimming at local beaches away from crowds! The hotel's Special Ginger Lemon Tea, Swiss Adobo and schitzels are all-time favorites! Bantayan is a must- do trip and we Highly Recommend SYKE for their very reasonable rates, reliability and professional services!

        Heaven on earth that you should visit at least once before you die!
        It's a little difficult to get to this island. However… Heaven on earth that you should visit at least once before you die!

        Wasn't a fan of the tourguide
        The hotel was good on this trip, besides the one bartender hitting up on my girl I was with. Also I left a decent tip at checkout but they forgot to check the mini bar. I had drank a couple beers and ended up having to pay that which was way under the tip amount and basically another tip as I didn't have change then when they called and j had to leave with the tour guide that took us to the ferry to leave the island. Then onto the tour itself. Wasn't bad persay. Lots of activities, not all that was listed when I booked tho as unavailable. Main problem I had is I didn't know where the heck I was going daily, and during it the guide refused to speak much English to me directly even tho he knew it fluently. So I had to sit in the tricycle not knowing where I was going during and hearing him talk to my then filipina girlfriend the entire time without knowing what was even being said, even when I kept having to interrupt and ask where we were going after he was done speaking where in Filipino. My ex knew English fluently too. Just annoying when you are a tourist and don't speak that language and they keep looking at you as they joke and speak something you don't understand, and act like you do. Furthermore being I didn't know where I was going I wasn't dressed accurately each morning. I could have just went back in and delayed and changed each day but would have been better to know well before hand the expected day activities. They might have said a little prior, but not enough for me to understand with the stress I was already going thru. Wasn't even able to go to kota beach, which wasn't directly their fault. However they made the problems worse with me and my then girlfriend which caused us to cut the trip short. Overall 3/5 stars. I wish I could rate higher but the trip was already terrible for me because of the situation I was in, and that tour guide and bartender (not the owner bartender as he was great) wasn't making my vacation any better.

        Great inexpensive fun in Cebu
        There was an online promo for P550 per person (around $10). I'm not sure why this site says $60 per person. Not true. Its a good time if you're ever in cebu. Much more fun than a city/mountain tour. We did both, and the tour was so hot that I got sick and had to sit out a few sites. The bird show is a lot of fun, but i'd recommend bringing back the sea lion show. The stadium is built for a sea lion show.

        Pleasant Surprise when in Cebu City
        Did not expect that Cebu would have a safari. It is worth visiting in one of your Cebu trips. Notes Entrance fee rates differ during the weekdays (php900) and weekends (php1100) Food and drinks are not allowed to be brought in but there are well placed restaurants and a convenience store inside the facility Check schedule of ahows for the day. Watch the bird show There is a newly opened section atop the mountain - birds of the qorld and aviary - you cant touch the birds but some birds will fly to you and are extremely friendly ;) There is still ongoing work at the rose section but keep to the trail and you will find a hidden gem - a wonderful bridge, rest stop and an open cabin that offers massages (php600) Make sure to wear comfortable clothes and shoes and be early to maximize the tour of the facility

        Great Park even better Restaurant
        I have been to several Oceanariums and Cebu Ocean Park is a great experience and a beautiful park, but what surprised me most was the Aquadining during the weekend. This was an absolute top experience with great food, quality rarely tasted in the Philippines. We were a few days in the neighborhood, so we came back for a second evening in Aquadining. From SM Seaview a 100 meters walk to Cebu Ocean Park and believe not 1 restaurant in SM can match Aquadining.

        Very recommended
        Found this place in this site and was given a nice service. Apparently booked the wrong ride but admin was nice enough to give us the correct ride! Staff was very accommodating and motorbike was well maintained. Plus, the ambiance is so nice while waiting for your motorbike to be delivered.

        The animals were sometimes hard to see they fed animals late in the day so people didn't get the chance to see them close up(maybe feed ealier)? The signage was sometimes misleading Despite being very quiet on my visit the catering service was very slow,this could be an issue on busy days As a smoker a smoking area might be a good idea

        A must do for all that travel in the Philippines
        Kalanggaman island is worth a day visit, great pics. A lot of locals picnicking in the treed area Malapascua is a small island, a few cafes and restaurants and a local Filipino food market in land a little that’s pretty popular, don’t rent a scooter as island is to small Take a huble huble, shares scooter to the North beach as it is to far to walk and is worth a visit Bantayan island is great, nice beaches and a few good restaurants in town. Well worth renting a scooter at p250/day.

      No one advised that this was a tour done in a tricycle. I could have paid a quarter of the price just paying for a tricycle to these areas. The "tour guide" provided is the tricycle driver who just takes you to the next stop and waits for you. My partner was extremely uncomfortable in a tricycle (due to his height and back issues) and again I would not have booked this had I known it was just a tricycle not a vehicle. We ended up having to just cancel the tour and ask the driver to take us to the last stop which was the included lunch. During this stop, the driver just left/went missing and we had to walk home. To be honest, I think that 3/5 stars is generous to say the least.

      The tour was amazing with 2 Tricycles arranged by the agent. The driver were very friendly and gave a lot of information about the several spots which we visited. Great was the cave flooded with seawater. Also the Paradise Beach with white smooth sand and clear water. The included Lunch at SMACK´S Restaurant was tasteful staff and owner are very friendly.
