Driver from Manila to to Tagatay and Taal Volcano

Hi fellow travelers!

I've been reading thru past postings, and can't seem to find a recent answer to my question.

I am in Manila for a few days and would like to plan a day trip from Makati to Tagatay and hike to the Taal Volcano crater. The tours I have found online seem very expensive (10,000+) for a solo traveler, so I was thinking a private driver may be the way to go. Thoughts?

I would love any specific recommendations on a driver that someone has used recently. The TA driver reference list seems to have been taken down, as when I click on the link, it now goes to a general info page.

Would also love any tips regarding the trip in general (ie: get up early to get ahead of traffic) that you can offer.

Thanks much!

I did this trip with Tourist Driver and he knows his way around this area and he will be a lot cheaper than your quote.

Solicitation not allowed and against forum rules.

Stick to reputable TA recommended drivers.

Do not pay more than P4000, all in for a day trip.
