Filipino Travel & Tours – Then & Now

It began with a dream and a passion for travel, becoming a way of life in 1996. Combining a knowledge and love of the Philippines, Filipino Travel Center Inc. (FTC) began as a Boracay operation in 1998, expanding to a second office in Manila shortly afterwards and then a third in Angeles City in 2002.

The Dutch Directors’ spirit of independent exploration is just as alive today is it was when they, too, arrived as tourists from The Netherlands in 1996 after travelling the world following studying and working in the fields of law and economics. They travel extensively around The Philippines, experiencing the country’s history, beautiful scenery and its people. They established Filipino Travel Center in 1998 as a business opportunity built on a passion to pass on their experiences of this amazing country to others.

Together they are responsible for the strategic planning and direction of FTC.  Knowledgeable, “hands-on” and customer-focused, their high service standards, flexibility, determination and well-trained English speaking team ensure that their comprehensive tours from their reliable and well-known organization are enjoyed by all ages and nationalities.
