If you're looking for the ultimate barefoot beach babe vibe, we've got you. Fall asleep under the stars at our TruExclusive castaway experience, island-hop on traditional Banca boats or parasurf on the party hotspot Island of Boracay!

A group enjoying their welcome dinner on Khao San Road in Bangkok Thailand

Hop off the plane at MNL, That's Manila airport code (In case you didn't know) and take advantage of airport pick up. If you fancy meeting us directly at the hotel, that's cool too. Check in, relax, put your feet up and wind down before meeting up with your new TruFam and travel ninja. (That's what we call our tour guides, not someone who will continuously karate chop your dinner up for you every single night of your trip... I mean they might if you ask nicely) We grab some dinner before heading for a night on the town of Makati! One of Manila's liveliest cities, we'll show you to some of the best bars. Although we can't promise we won't bring some outrageous dad dancing, we can promise you'll have a sick time!

Welcome to Palawan, formerly known as the gateway to heaven. Maybe we made that part up but if you're looking for paradise then look no further, my friend! We start the day by jumping aboard a short flight to Puerto Princesa before getting picked up in our very own private minivans. Look up the word "unspoilt" in the dictionary, and you'll see a picture of Port Barton as the definition. The small, idyllic, fishing town is where we spend the next few days off the tour. We stop to have lunch with a local family, try out some delicious Filipino grub and chat about the workings of life in paradise. Check in to our beachfront hotel, yeah we're fancy. Watch the sun go down bev in hand, before venturing out to grab dinner and maybe even a sex on the beach! We mean the drink obviously…

If you think you've seen beauty, wait till you see Palawan's rainbow-coloured reefs, beautiful majestic turtles and the crystal clear colour of the waves. Great Barrier what? Head to golden sand beaches and reenact your best Baywatch scene whilst jogging out the water in slow motion. You've built up an appetite after a 'Shell of a good time' did you see what we did there? Because we saw turtles? No? Ok. We have lunch in a small fishing village. Have a few hours free time to chill, whether you prefer attempting to form a human pyramid on the beach with your TruFam or top up those tan lines whilst sunbathing in ya speedo. The time is yours to spend however you like! Sailing in the Philippines is 10 outta 10! We cruise back to Port Barton where we freshen up and check out the best bars and restaurants in town!

Think, crystal clear blue lagoons, kayaking with your new BFF in what can only be described as paradise. It's been scientifically PROVEN that jumping in the sea can cure pretty much any hangover. I mean maybe not scientifically but it's defo a long-living Tru theory we stand by. Grab your snorkel and dive under to see the magic of the Philippine Sea or re-energise sunbathing on the golden sands. We stop for a local style lunch before heading back to the hotel around sunset.

It's time to explore some shipwrecks before taking a guided tour of Daracotan Island, home to 88 full-time residents (including a pig or two). Hear fascinating tales of their heritage, meet a local family and learn how tourism positively impacts their lives today. In the evening we take part in a traditional local cooking demonstration where you'll learn how to eat Filipino style! We dine together, devouring the local delicacies we prepared shortly before and make a mental note to add "world renowned chef" to the CV when we get back home.

We arrive late afternoon, so let’s explore! Sunsets in Boracay are next level. We’re talking an ombre of golden oranges blending into lilac’s and deep purples. Yep, I-N-S-A-N-E. So we’ll watch the sun go down over a few beers on the beach or join a sunset cruise for cocktails. Afterwards, we see where the night takes us. Psssttt..

We're pretty much all professional beach babes at this point so grab your favourite snorkel & mask and jump straight in those tropical waters or even better, grab yourself a floatie, kayak or paddle board and chillax while reminiscing on what we can only assume has been the best 16 days of your life. In the evening we head out for a farewell dinner over sunset cocktails. Our last Hurrah, the final act of the show. One last performance and we're not ending without a standing ovation!

Our 3-star hotel in Moalboal is super close to Panagsama Beach, the most famous beach in Moalboal to see the Sardine Run and turtles too! BUT the best thing about this hotel is that it has its very own private beach too so if you fancy a bit more of a secluded chill, we gotcha!

Our hotel has a restaurant, bar and a garden so you've got everything you need at your fingertips. It also has an outdoor swimming pool and free WiFi!

Reviews

I cannot begin to explain how amazing…
I cannot begin to explain how amazing my trip was with Tru Travels. We booked a tour in The Phillipines and had the most incredible group leader called Jiear. He made our holiday so special and we adore him so so much. Great company and I have already recommended my friends to book through Tru Travels as I had such an incredible experience with them.

I would recommend the tour every time!
The tour was amazing and I would recommend it to anyone! Everything was well planned from start to finish, a very big shout out to Jay our tour guide who couldn’t have been more helpful the whole way through and even prior to the trip, couldn’t fault his professionalism whatsoever.

I feel I’ve had 17 days worth of laughs and mind blowing views!
I honestly had the best time on the tru travels 17 day Philippine island hopper tour! I couldn’t have asked for a better guide (Jiear), group, range of activities and locations! During my time I feel I saw a good amount of the Philippines and did a range of things! All the activities ran smoothly and were just so much fun! Our leader Jiear became a true friend on the group he knew exactly when to have a laugh with us all or be be more serious! I knew at any point I could go to him for help and he would be straight there! Couldn’t recommend it enough!

And JIEAR has been an excellent tour leader and he made sure all daily activities planned and carried out smoothly, and gave everyone of us any support needed along the way. Also he has been such a good friend to us all. I would definitely recommend this tour and Jiear to my colleagues.

17 days of island dreaming
The whole 17 days was amazing. The guide, Nicole, was engaging and fun. The activities both included and optional were fantastic. I would do it all again.

Exceptional experience
Great activities planned out well - had so much fun. It was amazing having a group that wasn’t too big because we all got to connect and get to know each other. Our guide Gemma was exceptionally knowledgeable and shared so much with us about each place and the culture and knew so many locals which connected us with amazing fun opportunities outside of the scheduled activities. Always felt so supported by Gemma and she was ready to help - I had a medical emergency (allergies) and she was amazing managing it + hospital and coordinating everything I needed and ensured everywhere we ate was aware and prevented any further issues.

I had an absolute blast on the 17 day island hopping tour! Would recommend this tour to anyone! AJ, our guide, made the experience so special for all of us. He was so fun, knowledgeable, and personable. The activities were great and all locations were breathtaking. The Philippines are really something special and I can’t wait to go back.

I recently did the 17 day Philippines…
I recently did the 17 day Philippines tour East and West with Tru travel. This was by far the best tour I have done! There is so much to see and do throughout the whole tour. Our tour leader was called VJ and he went above and beyond the whole tour making everyone feel welcome and that everyone was well accommodated for! I cannot recommend this tour enough!
