Our experience with Cebu Tours was for the large part very positive. Our driver picked us up promptly at 3.30am from Mactan and we had an uneventful, albeit rather long 2.5-3 hour drive to Oslob. On arrival we had a lovely breakfast of mango and sticky rice and met our guide for the morning part of the tour: I think her name was Annalise. She was to be with us for the whale shark watching and tumalog falls visit in the morning. I would say our experience with the guide was the biggest disappointment for us. Her English was not ideal and communication was difficult. Even when we asked basic questions there wasn’t really an answer except ‘yes’ or ‘it’s ok’. This was rather frustrating as we were surrounded by multiple other couples and groups who had booked with Cebu tours, all allocated guides who were conversing with them regularly, keeping them up to date and most importantly educating them on the area, the whale sharks, the falls, the history of it all and the details of the day. In the end we made friends with another couple who allowed us to ask their guide what we needed but once we were at the whale shark encounter we were once again with only our guide. We were moved from group 47 to 53 without any explanation. She was unable to help us when we enquired about buying wet shoes and when it came to directing us to the boat, there was no direction at all and we nearly missed our boat and sailing out altogether! The experience itself if breathtaking, truly wonderful to swim with the sharks. Our afternoon guide was Tony for canyoneering. My advice, if you’re going to Kawasan Falls, do the canyoneering! I was definitely Nervous about the jumps and activity but it is all doable and for any of the jumps, small or big, if you don’t want to do them, there is always an alternative route so don’t worry. Tony was fantastic!!! He helped us throughout, so much fun and took some really fantastic photos of us with our phones. He was particularly attentive as I was nervous and assisted me well during the tough parts!
The tour guides were amazing! Made the entire experience so much fun! Having good tour guides makes a big difference in how you enjoy the experience. The whale shark experience was amazing and to top it off with canyoneering and Kawasan falls was the cherry on top! Enjoyed every second of the experience!
The whale watching in Oslob was very interesting, seeing big whale sharks up close for the first time. You need to ask your guide to pre-book the slots for the boat to bring you to where the whale sharks are, else you'll be waiting for sometime along the shoreline for your number to be called. They give you a life jacket which makes it difficult to swim under to see the w-sharks. If you're a good swimmer, you can dispense with the life jackets. Try to book a place to take a shower since there are no shower facilities after the watch.
Kawasan was another interesting activities, which you can do after the w-watching. After some briefing, they take you to the starting point by motorcycles. Then the canyoneering starts. The whole activity lasted around 4 hours give or take. A lot of cliff dive from a few meters to the highest just next to the falls. Definitely worth it for water lovers.
Truly a fabulous time on this tour. The driver picked me up on time and I enjoyed having the car to myself and being able to leave things secure in the car between activities was even better. The tour guides throughout the day were very attentive and took great care of me. They answered all my questions and made sure I was comfortable the whole day. My absolute favorite was swimming with the whale sharks. I also enjoyed the canyoneering but it was 4 hours long and wished I had been more prepared for how physically demanding it was. In the end I wouldn't change a thing!!
I spent 17 days in the Philippines for vacation and had the best time of my life. Everything from the sites to the food and people were great. This tour was the best part of my trip. Its amazing what you get for this small price.
