Frequently Asked Questions
Yes! Once you’ve booked and before you travel we’ll help put you in touch with the rest of your group, so you can start chatting and getting to know each other.
All of your internal flights, activities, accommodation, transport and some meals are included throughout the duration of the tour, so you’ll just need money for any extra meals, drinks, shopping, and any onward travel. We recommend you bring at least $300 AUD spending money for the trip.
We always recommend traveling with a backpack and packing light! 10-20kgs of stuff should be plenty. It’s almost always very hot in the Philippines so it is never fun to drag around a big suitcase!
