    I love this activity since I love fireflies. It is not recommended for those who are not fond of fireflies and stars because you might find it boring. The main activity will only take 15-20 minutes and I find the price not reasonable for the activity. That is why I giving this activity four stars. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it.

What To Expect

The fireflies of Puerto Princesa are famous for being a breathtaking spectacle. This tour will get you right up close to this amazing natural wonder. You'll be able to enjoy a delicious buffet dinner before you climb aboard a boat and set off on the Iwahig River. As dusk falls and darkness settles, the light show of the fireflies begin. It is only in Southeast Asia where fireflies glow in unison; they are a repeating, glowing beat, as seen through the mangrove trees. The whole line of mangroves and trees will be lit with flashing fireflies, glowing together, and so distinct that it is said that in these parts of the world, fishermen use them as a form of guiding system to find their way in the darkness of the night. Don't miss the chance to see these breathtaking wonders when you head to Puerto Princesa!

    The boatman/guide was very knowledgeable and showed and taught us about fireflies, constellations, planets, and even bioluminescent plankton. It left me in absolute awe of the Creator and His creation. Food was ok, venue was fairly clean, but don't expect a spectacular spread. The activity is highly dependent on weather conditions, so when it rains, chances are the river will be closed, so keep that in mind when booking this activity. Also, best to book during a new moon. Hope the travel agency will also be more proactive in contacting and updating participants next time.

    The tour was good from pick up, travelling to the venue and experiencing the fireflies with the guide giving details about the fireflies.

    The tour does not only include firefly watching but also star gazing and seeing plankton underwater. Boatman was very knowledgeable and funny. Although there were only few fireflies, tour experience was great. Dinner buffet was average.

    We were able to see several trees with fireflies and they were amazing. The staff navigating the boat was very knowledgable of the place. Aside from firefly watching, stars in the area was also amazing. We were able to see several constellations which we woudn’t normally see in the city with our bare eyes.

    Awesome. Thanks also to our tour guide and driver they were very patient and cool

    The experience was shorter than the actual travel time!

    The activity itself was great. It was serene and the fireflies look Christmas lights on mangroves. The organizer, however, did not even contact us to say what time they will pick us up. Klook says 5pm but we were picked up at 7pm. I had to call them to know if they’re gonna pick us up. They said they’re gonna text me the time. I waited but nothing. Had to contact them again to know what time they’re gonna pick us up. Food was okay.

    Our trip was cancelled due to bad weather. We were unable to re schedule because our flight was on the next day. It is taking time before Klook refunds the payment made. I have to hand it to the agency of the tour though because they responded quick and emailed Klook for the refund right away but Klook hasn't followed through yet

    There are only few fireflies. It was kinda hard to see them as it was almost full moon. Maybe it would have been nice if there was no moon.
