Why do we love this

A 16 Day Philippines Group Tour starting in Manila and ending in the beautiful island of Siargao! Explore the beautiful Philippines with a group of like-minded travellers from around the world.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Mabuhay and welcome to the Philippines!
 

In 16 days of island-hopping across the Philippines, we will explore the bustling nightlife in Manila, swim with whale sharks, snorkel in crystal clear waters, camp on the beach under the stars, discover Filipino culture, learn the language (some of it, anyway), and enjoy the best sunsets on earth! Meet the locals, kayak through caves, enjoy endless beers and cocktails on the beach and the best part is that you’ll be doing it all with a group of like-minded travelers – so if you are planning to travel solo, no need to worry as 90% of the people who join us are solo travelers as well! Want to find out if we’re the Philippines tour company for you? 
 

So, if you’re looking to Do the Philippines right, meet new people, experience the culture, and have the time of your life, then make Do The Philippines your next adventure! And if this tour isn’t quite perfect, check out the rest of our Philippines Holiday Packages.

We always recommend traveling with a backpack and packing light! 10-20kgs of stuff should be plenty. It’s generally quite hot in the Philippines, so dragging around a huge suitcase is not much fun.
