What you'll do
We will pick you up from your place and escape to the neighbouring province of Batangas and visit the mountain city of Tagaytay. Its 45 kilometre away from Manila and travel time is 1.5 hours per way. Not known to many, but the best view of the Volcano is within a popular hotel which we could visit for free. I will provide a standard meal but we can sample the food that made Tagaytay popular like Bulalo or other preferred dishes before going to the lake to visit the volcano island. A short boat ride follows until we reach the jump off where a local guide will take over for the 1 hour trek to the view deck, which is the highest point of the crater. The trek down is faster. We will then head back to the lake town of Talisay before our ride back to Manila. A portion of the fee will be donated personally under your name to an Orphanage for abandoned kids which we will visit for a bit of interaction should the time permits. Discounts available for more than 1 person. Message us for preferred schedules not listed.
I'm Omar, an Architect. 2 years ago I retired from my day job to pursue a startup featured on CNN Philippines, The Final Pitch (PH version of Shark Tank). Initially, I wanted to establish my own business to have control of my time & finance my love for travels documented on my blog (www.moleinthefoot.blogspot.com) The travel bug bit me first, and is now a Department of Tourism Accredited Tour Guide. Together with my batch mates in the tourism guiding course, we're taking this opportunity to improve and show guests the beauty of our city. I have 10 experiences to offer. I am now creating a tour agency with my batch mates as my core team. On a personal note, I was raised in the historical part of Manila, & my university within the walls of Intramuros.

Where you'll be
Inside one of the hotels in the city is the unobstructed view of Taal Volcano. An active volcano island located in the province of Batangas. We will sample the food that made Tagaytay popular like Bulalo, or the Beef Dishes or any preferred food. We will make a quick stop at the Picnic Grove, before finally going down the ridge to visit the lake within the island of Luzon and trek the active Volcano Island.
