6D5N Manila - Dumaguete w/ a day in Siquijor

Dumaguete City serves as the gateway to the beaches, dive spots, eco-adventures of provinces of Negros Oriental, Siquijor Island, and Southern Cebu Island, and of Northwestern Mindanao. In Dumaguete City everything seems like it's just a 5-minute drive away. It is gateway to world's best diving island, dolphin and whale watching, pristine mountains, breathtaking lakes, incredible forests, enchanting museums, arts and culture events, and more! With the number of universities in this small yet quaint city, it has been known to be Philippines' University Town. And with the presence of Silliman Univesity, the first American-founded Institution in the whole of Asia, and home of architectural heritage, Dumaguete retained its standing as the town of choice in education in Visayas and Mindanao. Dumaguete is an emerging top tourism destination in the Philippines, as it has drawn thousands of foreign and domestic tourists every year and rising to huge percentages based on data. The whole island of Siquijor was declared a marine reserve and tourist zone in 1978 by virtue of Proclamation No. 1810. As such, the island-province will be developed into a major tourist destination under the supervision of the Philippine Tourism Authority. Known for its scenic beauty and archaic churches, Siquijor is also blessed with natural and historical attractions. Its unspoiled environment and the warm hospitality of its people never fail to beckon visitors from all over. The serenity of the whole province makes it ideal for a perfect getaway.

We decided to meet in Manila (3 couples, friends reunion) and enjoy the Philippines, both Manila and an island. I took up on me to arrange it with a local tour company and after reading reviews ended up with Erez and his local team at Tourismo Filipino. I couldn't have made a better decision. Erez picked well our wishes and needs from our emails and phone conversations. he understood well the things we want to explore, our expectations from hotels and arranged it all in a great way, with looking into all the details and it all went very well. was great organized and exactly to our taste. We were looking for a nature and cultural experience and got it in a well done fashion. Erez helped a lot with his ideas about places and the pros and cons of doing things one way or another but left it all to our decisions which we liked a lot ! Both Erez and his office team were very responsive, updated us every day as needed and took care for all our needs. Everything was on time, with great comfort cars, pleasant drivers and local tour guides - everything we could have asked for. Money well spent , all of us highly recommend their service and will use the office again when we need it. The Philippines were a jewel, so we will probably be there again :) Read more
