My husband and I used Arnold Sanchez as a driver when we did a 5 day rice terrace tour in February 2013. We left from Manila and drove to Banaue in a day. We stayed there for two nights and did a tour to Batad (which Arnold arranged for us as he does not have a vehicle to make it that far – caution: EXTREMELY bumpy road!!!). The views of Batad are incredible, well worth the drive and hike! I am somewhat out of shape and found the hike very difficult, but it was awesome. We then drove to Sagada and stayed there for two nights. Arnold was able to arrange a place for us to stay which he had access to and which I had not seen in my personal research of places to stay. We enjoyed Sagada, although our original purpose in going there was to tour the cave, we decided after discussion with Arnold that this was something just not suited to us. So instead Arnold planned other things for us to see and do. Arnold was a great source of local information and was always honest in his opinions. We then drove to Baguio and stayed there for a night to break up the trip back to Manila. I found it very difficult to plan this portion of our Philippines trip as there was a lack of drivers and tours that offered what I really wanted. Arnold was the only person I could find, and I’m SO glad I found him. He was fantastic in so many ways – a good driver (especially by the Philippines standards, he genuinely cared about our safety and didn’t take crazy risks), a really great person to talk to (who could sense when we wanted quiet time, but also when we wanted to chat – my husband loves to talk and him and Arnold had so many great discussions and laughs), and he was very fair in his price. I would highly recommend him! His contact email is email@example.com. Feel free to message me if you want any further details.
