What people are saying about Tradition & Culture in Batanes
It was a last minute plan trip to Batanes but definitely worth it. Tour was organized & we were well taken care of our tour guide, Kuya Nelson of Chanpan Tours. Shout out to his amazing photography/videography skills! Weather was also great during our entire tour. Will definitely recommend this tour to others. Keep it up! :)
If you only have 3 or 4 days in Batanes, better take this compressed tour so you’ll have an extra day or two for yourself to go around Batanes on your own.
Flights arrive in the morning just before the start of the tour so you can book on the day you arrive.
Day 1 9am to 5pm South Batan Tour
Day 2 6am to 12pm Sabtang Island
Day 2 2pm to 6pm North Batan Tour
The tour was great :) very informative and accommodating! Thanks again.
The whole tour was beyond amazing. Aside from the fact that the weather cooperated with us, Kuya Justin (our tour guide) was very kind and super galing. He was very informative and answered all our questions. He also helped us reserve our dinners outside the tour. And most importantly, he is an amazing photographer! It was as if we had a professional photographer follow us throughout our Batanes trip.
Our tour driver (I forgot his name huhu) was also very careful, he even momentarily stopped the van when he had to take a call. Thumbs up kuya!
The whole tour was jam packed but not rushed. We got to go to every beautiful place in Batanes that we almost had nothing left to do on our extra day. We are so happy we booked this tour, and if we come back we will surely book again!
So worth it and organised! They really take care of you the entire tour! Not only you get to see great views and places, but you'll learn some history of Batanes. Will book Chanpan again for our Itbayat Tour when we come back. :) Our tourguide was amazing and the best! Shout out to Kuya Nelson - he has mad photo/videography skills. :) Dios Mamajes!
The best option for a quick 3 to 5 days Batanes trip. 2 days of all-in compressed tour of the best highlights to experience in this breathtaking Philippine gem. Plus our guide, Arnel Comaya, not only gave us a good tour, but delivered the most beautiful and amazing shots in our phone cameras. Chan Pan Tours is highly-recommended. 👍👍
It was fun, relaxed and organised tour by Chanpan tours and services. Our tour guide, for 3 days was Justin and he was able to inform us of what we needed to know in every place that we visited, that is included in the itinerary. All the places we visited were beautiful and the locals were really nice as well. My friends and I had a great time. Thanks Klook and Chanpan-Batanes..
