Well organized

June 2018
Pick-Up was on the time frame allowance. Since the time of the pick-up, Mitch (Tour Guide) was very informative, at the same time funny. The travel time going to the Sabang Port/Underground River was long but Mitch (Tour Guide) kept us entertained and assists us all throughout the tour. We had an amazing time with the tour. It was well worth it. - Tour Guide (MITCH) was awesome - Driver performed his duties professionally
