Our experience with Cebu Tours was for the large part very positive. Our driver picked us up promptly at 3.30am from Mactan and we had an uneventful, albeit rather long 2.5-3 hour drive to Oslob. On arrival we had a lovely breakfast of mango and sticky rice and met our guide for the morning part of the tour: I think her name was Annalise. She was to be with us for the whale shark watching and tumalog falls visit in the morning. I would say our experience with the guide was the biggest disappointment for us. Her English was not ideal and communication was difficult. Even when we asked basic questions there wasn’t really an answer except ‘yes’ or ‘it’s ok’. This was rather frustrating as we were surrounded by multiple other couples and groups who had booked with Cebu tours, all allocated guides who were conversing with them regularly, keeping them up to date and most importantly educating them on the area, the whale sharks, the falls, the history of it all and the details of the day. In the end we made friends with another couple who allowed us to ask their guide what we needed but once we were at the whale shark encounter we were once again with only our guide. We were moved from group 47 to 53 without any explanation. She was unable to help us when we enquired about buying wet shoes and when it came to directing us to the boat, there was no direction at all and we nearly missed our boat and sailing out altogether! The experience itself if breathtaking, truly wonderful to swim with the sharks. Our afternoon guide was Tony for canyoneering. My advice, if you’re going to Kawasan Falls, do the canyoneering! I was definitely Nervous about the jumps and activity but it is all doable and for any of the jumps, small or big, if you don’t want to do them, there is always an alternative route so don’t worry. Tony was fantastic!!! He helped us throughout, so much fun and took some really fantastic photos of us with our phones. He was particularly attentive as I was nervous and assisted me well during the tough parts!

The tour guides were amazing! Made the entire experience so much fun! Having good tour guides makes a big difference in how you enjoy the experience. The whale shark experience was amazing and to top it off with canyoneering and Kawasan falls was the cherry on top! Enjoyed every second of the experience!

The whale watching in Oslob was very interesting, seeing big whale sharks up close for the first time. You need to ask your guide to pre-book the slots for the boat to bring you to where the whale sharks are, else you'll be waiting for sometime along the shoreline for your number to be called. They give you a life jacket which makes it difficult to swim under to see the w-sharks. If you're a good swimmer, you can dispense with the life jackets. Try to book a place to take a shower since there are no shower facilities after the watch.
Kawasan was another interesting activities, which you can do after the w-watching. After some briefing, they take you to the starting point by motorcycles. Then the canyoneering starts. The whole activity lasted around 4 hours give or take. A lot of cliff dive from a few meters to the highest just next to the falls. Definitely worth it for water lovers.

The tour was great! Our tour guide Chili was the best!!! Made our day and the whole experience so much fun! The only bad thing was the driver. He seemed to be sleepy the whole time while driving, and he was honestly the WORST DRIVER I’ve ever seen. What made us very stressed the whole time we were inside the car (and it’s a big part of the day).

We booked the canyoneering with whale sharks because I used to work as a dive instructor and would always be out of the water when the whale sharks came in. The tour guide took us to the snorkeling in Moalboal which I thought was weird because it wasn’t in the itinerary, then onto canyoneering. We mentioned to the canyon guide that we needed to rush because we were going to see the whale sharks and it was getting quite late. He said that whale sharks can only been seen in the morning.

When we got back to the car, we asked Jack our guide/driver about why we were on the wrong tour and he showed me the sms from the company that said canyoneering and pescador tour which meant that it was their office that messed up, not our guide.

When I wrote to the company requesting a refund, they tried to blame it on us and said that we changed our mind and requested the pescador tour on the morning of the trip. That’s not even possible because Jack told us that if we were going to the whale sharks from the get go, the pick up has to be at 3:30am so our 5am pick up wouldn’t make any sense.

This company is dodgy, unethical and will not provide any compensation if they make a mistake. Book their tours at your own peril.

Hi Christina, we are very sorry for the misunderstanding. Jack told us that you are okay with the Pescador and Canyoneering package that you did cuz you are done with the Pescador island hopping with the sardine run and turtle watching. Cuz if we know that you are not okay with it, we could have arrange you a whale shark tour even the next day. But jack told us , that you are okay with the package that you took that day. We are also worried cuz last December 29 (the day you had the tour), there are lots of people in whale shark watching but even we can send you there and let our guides in Oslob buy tickets for you, you might missed the whale sharks cuz they are operating morning only. But we could have arranged another tour for you the next day. We are not blaming you nor we did not say you are a liar (as what you told us in the email). We even replied to your message and took the blame to ourself as it was our fault. But we felt sorry about it. Anyway, again, we are very sorry for what happen that tours got mixed up since we have received lots of tours on that day as it was the most busiest day of the year! Thank you and Happy New Year! PS. We have sent you a full refund by the way and given you a FREE Pescador + Canyoneering tour that you will surely never forget.

Truly a fabulous time on this tour. The driver picked me up on time and I enjoyed having the car to myself and being able to leave things secure in the car between activities was even better. The tour guides throughout the day were very attentive and took great care of me. They answered all my questions and made sure I was comfortable the whole day. My absolute favorite was swimming with the whale sharks. I also enjoyed the canyoneering but it was 4 hours long and wished I had been more prepared for how physically demanding it was. In the end I wouldn't change a thing!!
