Metro Manila · Travel Agencies and Tour Operators
When living in a Megacity like Manila, it is essential to get out of the smoggy and crowded urban chaos every now and then, at least for a weekend. Here we list down some of Manila's travel agencies that offer domestic tour packages and more.
These companies bring you to the beach, to cultural heritage sites, on mountain tops or to waterfalls, and to all the other wonders the Philippines (and its neighboring countries) have in stores. The selection of the right travel agency is a subjective one, based on personal experience, online reviews, awards, services, rates, and/or special tours you won't easily find anywhere else.
However, the quality of the agencies' services can always change, so we recommend to additionaly ask other expats and Filipinos who are fond of travelling about their recent experiences with specific tour operators.
If you know another agency that deserves to be on the list, let us know and send us a short explanation why it should be added.
