Awesome tour operator
Mar. 2021 • Family
Such an awesome tour operator! We did a 2-day tour with 2 boats since we were a group. Their guides are very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and extremely helpful all throughout. On top of the tour and the yummy packed lunches they provided, the tour also came with photos and a beautifully made video using their drone. They also prepared the itinerary document we needed to get our QR code. We had such a wonderful experience and I highly recommend them!

Best tour in Elnido
Jan. 2021 • Friends
This is my second trip to elnido and Ape tour is the best tour I had in this amazing paradise.

I visited with my bf and 2 friends during pandemic season. We went last January 8-12, 2021. Everything is strict given all the paper works that you have to comply but Ape tour has been amazing from start of the document preparation until the very end of the tour.

Marge was a breeze to talk. All documents and support was given to us prior the trip. She also helped us look for accredited list of restaurants prior to the trip. Note that not all establishment are opened in Elnido. Also, part of Elnido’s safety protocol is to not give food during tour. It was a big help that Marge was able to help us in finding opened restaurants that offers packed lunch within our budget prior to the trip.

We experienced some gail warnings thus adjustments has to be made in our planned schedule. Yana contacts us early in the morning and is always on top of things to make sure we can travel on time and safely.

Hats off to our amazing tour guide Jason and Dar plus the boat captain and crew. Everything was just FUN. They brought cameras and took pictures of us. They brought speakers so we were able to dance in the lagoons. They even carved the fruits we bought to that extra elnido experience. They took us to hidden places and spots in the where we took lots of pictures.

Speaking of pictures, we were able to get the soft copies of our photos. We just gave Yana our usb and met her the next day for pick up. The shots were great and very pro! Sir Alvin l (brother of the owner) I think was able to edit the pictures overnight. They are super hands on.

It was scary at first to go and travel during corona virus but Ape tours made the trip worry and hassle free for us. No one was in the lagoons. We had it all to ourselves. If you think elnido is beautiful, you had to see it now without all the tourist. It is paradise. Thank you Ape tours! I will surely book you again once we go back to elnido!

Nice tour wrong time management
It was nice that they have got a Photographer and great photos but we were called to the meeting point at 8.15 and the tour started at 10.40 so they made us wait standing up for 2.5 hours... when we got on the boat the captain and the guide were still trying to change the boats battery so we waited on the boat too...

We apologize for letting you guys wait for almost 2 hours and for ending up with the boat not working out. We'll discuss this as a team and ensure that this will not happen in the future. Again we apologize.
