تسنت لنا الفرصه بمقابلتهم و تم عمل جدول لنا في الفلبين و كان الجميع ينظر للطبيعه و الاستجمام كان فريق عمل مميز

Hagit, Israel

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
