Travel to tagaytay & taal volcano

I'm from India and have come to Manila on work. 9th April2014 is a holiday and i want to travel to Tagaytal by bus. Im staying in Manila Greenbelt Makati. I plan to take a bus very early say 5am or so . I'm alone & would be grateful if you can help me plan my day. I have to return by night as I have work next day.

Some of my questions are:

1. Where can i get a bus closest to makati greenbelt to Tagaytay. & which bus should I take . Then how to reach the lake from bus stop.

2. Once I reach tagaytay , I would love to take a boat & go to volcano. Can I get a shared boat ,like there maybe a boat which offers per seat. How much would it cost to cross lake.

3 I also read somewhere regarding a cable car. Does this go to volcano. If so from where can i take this & how much will it cost.

4. Can one trek up the volcano on your own or does one need a guide

5. Can you also suggest if i can take a tour package from Tagaytay -Taal Lake -Volcano-& back. & how much would it cost

Would be real grateful for all your help.

Tommo thanks so much. I will be travelling by bus. Just need few clarifications. Which is closest bus stop to makati greenbelt to catch a bus to tagaytay . Also do they allow boat to be shared by people. I find 1500php so high & if so should i ask people around if they will be ready to share the boat
