This was a tour through Corazon Tours with tour guide Jesher. I enjoyed this tour so much! Hotel pick-up at my Puerto Princesa hotel went smoothly. The ride out to the river was about 40 minutes, which included the time to get other passengers. It...More

Don’t waste your time or money on this tour. Food was horrible, could not understand tour guide, trip was 15 minutes long to see the firefly. Not worth the amount of time it takes for this tour

Fun and relaxing. We didn’t have great weather, but definitely enjoyed it. Guide was amusing and the drivers/helpers attentive. Dinner was included but a real “joke”. Advertised as a seafood buffet. The only seafood was a small plate of 3 shrimp they put on our...More

This tour is all year round. If you’re lucky, you will even see planktons. Do the one at Baywalk.
