Pinatubo and Pagsanjan tours - recommended travel agency

Hello,

We will arrive to Manila in a few days and interested in doing 2 day tours to Pinatubo and Pagsanjan. Would be happy to get some recommendations on good and not expensive tour agencies that organize such trips from Manila. We initially thought of doing the Pagsanjan tour independently and just take a driver to Laguna area, but seems that it will be much more expensive than a public tour, is that correct?

Thanks in advance!

We used recommended driver "TouristDriver" for the Pagsanjan Trip as a private tour.

Not sure of any public tours perhaps others may.

For Pagsanjan, as mentioned by Tommo, hire a private driver like TD to bring you there.

As for Pinatubo, I used Tripinas and they are pretty good.

Good to know that you recommend Tripinas, we actually got to their website somehow and thought to book with them because of their low price. The problem is that they aren't answering any of our mails and the trip is in few days. We really hope that they still have free slots. Regarding the Pagsanjan tour, we looked into taking a private driver, but this will cost about 8000 php for both of us, while some tour agencies (like tripinas) have public tours in much better price (tripinas offer in 1990 per person - 3980 for both).

Thank you!

Tripinas do not have fixed schedule to the Falls. Usually the tour is a private one. So do not put too much hope on it.

So you either DIY or engage a private driver.
