    Tourist guides are very friendly. They took really good care of us. Lunch is very good too!

    spending time in Mantanani was a fun experience. It was our first time to spend our anniversary outside of our own country and Mantanani did not fail us. Our boat ride leveled up our journey even more and it was tantamount to a roller coaster ride. Everyone was having fun on the boat.
  • CHUN HIM 12 Sep 2018
    My friend and I had a very exciting ride to the island due to big waves. We saw quite a lot of fish during scuba diving. Fireflies at night were impressively amazing. Lunch and dinner did not taste so well, but the afternoon snacks were nice. As we were combined into a group with mainland Chinese guests, coaches seemed to be a little bit rude. Since there were a few different groups visiting that day, we were confused who was actually our guide as they passed us to different persons throughout the day. But overall the trip was good!

    Worst trip I’ve ever had! When we were picked up at our hotel our tour guide was on time. It looked like it was about to rain but the activity still pushed through. There were a lot of waiting at the port so itinerary was never followed. Our tour guide spoke a different language 95% of the time. Worst part was, as it was a bad weather and they decided to push through, we went to the island. While we were at the middle of the sea and the waves where to high due to bad weather, the motor of the boat died and the water was going inside the boat already. Again, they were speaking in different language so we don’t understand what’s happening. They were just shouting at each other while most of the tourists were already frightened. Many were already vomiting and they gave out plastics. Thankfully, after 15 mins of just floating, the motor was fixed. We were delayed in schedule due to what happened so our 12pm lunch was moved to 2:30pm. One of the tourist already mentioned that he was hungry but the tour guide said that they will go snorkeling first, I believe was not yet prepared. We did not join the snorkeling activity due to the dizziness we had while the boat was just swaying around in the middle of the sea when the motor died. Luckily for us, around 2:30pm the food was served, hence, we were already about to eat after long wait while those who did the snorkeling activity has not yet arrived. Unfortunately, when the group arrived, the rain hit hard so the group was not able to eat. They only ate noodles and we were all kept inside a garage where they stored the food while waiting for the rain to stop. When the rain slowed down a bit, we were already ask to ride the boat, it was the longest 1 hour of my life. Luckily, the motor did not die and the boat driver was able to bring us to the port safely. The splashes of waves hit our faces hard as the rain was still strong while we were at the middle of the sea. I closed my eyes all througout the boat ride. When we thought that the firefly and monkey activity will just be cancelled due to bad weather, our guide asked us if we wanted to go home but without a refund. WHY NOT REFUND THE MONEY if people does not want to continue with the activity considering the unforseen event? It all ended that some of the group pushed through with the activity though it was raining hard and rode the boat again and our tour guide just asked another driver to send us back to the hotel. Sadly, I was asked to sign a paper that I honestly did not understand as it was written in a different language but the tour guide mentioned that it was an agreement that we chose to go home and not join the group and money will not be refunded. As all we wanted to do was to go home after a traumatic experience, I just signed the paperwork. This activity gave me a trauma. Will never do an island hopping ever again!!

    Snorkeling activity is pretty much an average experience for us since we've been to Palawan. The food is good (buffet style). We weren't able to see the infamous proboscis monkey but the fireflies watching experience was great! Worth it for the price. ;)
  • YEE WAH 31 Aug 2018
    The tour guide is very helpful & has good sense of humour. We had seafood buffet lunch, including crab,abalone,fish & so on. I got to see nemo fish, corals, starfish & many other colourful fishes. The speed boat journey is indeed a water roller coaster, but it's so exciting👍👍And the most remarkable moment was when we saw dolphins swimming around our boat😍
  • Myca 29 Aug 2018
    The tour was smooth sailing. We were pick up on time. The location is a bit far 1 1/2 hr by land and 45 mins boat ride but it was all worth it. Mantanani will blow you away by its view. Lunch was good and over flowing. Sunset and the firefly cruise were magical. Two hands up for this tour! fully recommended
  • karren gail 29 Aug 2018
    the island is very clean and beautiful and the furefly tour gives you a magical feeling, however. there are a lot of down timw due to the "waiting" system. Guides are very helpful abd friendly and they make sure that the guests are enjoying. hope they can address and shorten the waiting time, because the tour started so late already because we were waiting for the other groups.
  • Dmitrii 28 Aug 2018
    very beautiful island, good service, good food, but river cruise is not worth seeing (for me). there were no monkeys and small amount of fireflies.
