Tour description

Duration: 11 hours

This 11 hours tour efficiently combines Tagaytay’s panoramic views (weather permitting) over lake Taal and Taal Volcano, the smallest and lowest volcano in the world, with the action of canoeing one of the most famous waterfalls in the Philippines, Pagsanjan Gorge & Falls.

This tour offers only the panoramic view of Taal lake and Taal volcano seen from Tagaytay’s ridge. Should you wish to actually trek the Taal volcano up to its crater, we recommend our Taal Volcano Trek.

Note : The (optional) pulling of the bamboo raft under the waterfall stream itself is NOT ADVISABLE FOR YOUNGER CHILDREN. The sound of the cascading water, in combination with the inevitable screams of excitement of fellow passengers and being on a bamboo raft can be frightening.

Overnight stay with breakfast in Tagaytay Ridge can also be arranged by us, please check our Overnight Luzon Packages.

Itinerary

At 07:00 you will be conveniently be picked up by our private, chauffeur driven airconditioned car for your 2 to 2.5 hours drive south of Manila via Santa Rosa to Tagaytay. On the way to Taal Lake and Taal volcano’s viewpoint we drive by stalls offering fresh fruit, feel free to ask the driver to shortly stop should you wish to buy something.

At 2,250 feet above sea level, this tour offers a panoramic view of Taal lake and its volcano, of course weather permitting. Sitting serenely on Taal Lake, this smallest and lowest volcano in the world offers a deceptively calm sight, given the violent history of past eruptions.

Your exploration continues as you head from Tagaytay to Pagsanjan.  We will stop enroute in this 2,5 hours drive to enjoy a local cup of coffee and a piece of pie. Upon arrival, lunch will be provided to you in a simple lodge above the water’s edge.

The Pagsanjan Falls is one of the most famous waterfalls in the Philippines, accessible only by dugout canoe. As your boatman takes you upstream the sight of lush greenery and towering cliffs unfold before you. The first fall is 20 minutes away and at the second, main fall (a 25 minutes further on , not reachable at high water)  the water explodes from 70 feet above, Here, a bamboo raft will take you under this waterfall, a fantastic experience!

Your return trip downstream is also exciting as you “shoot the rapids!” your boatman will skillfully maneuver the boat between the rocks and boulders until you return to the calm river of Pagsanjan.
