      First Rate Tour Company
      We booked with Travel Cart based on the great reviews on Tripadvisor and they deserve the great rating! We did the Subterranean River and the Honda Bay tours and both were handled professionally and with precision. Even the lunch for both tours were excellent! We were expecting that the lunches will be packed sandwiches but instead, we were treated to a buffet both times! The guides, Tess and the guy's name for the Honday Bay tour I forget, were both very knowledgeable and engaging. Our main contact with booking the tour was Marj and she was very attentive on FB messenger. No question was left unanswered and she got back to us very quickly. We will definitely book with them again if we ever visit Palawan again.

      Exciting Coron
      Coron can provide you with varied exciting experience. You can try the amazing Maquinit hot spring with water coming from under a hill but salty. Similar to the onsen in Japan, this hot spring is very rejuvenating for tired bodies and provides good cleansing on your skin. They have one large pool and three smaller pools. The only thing I did not like here is that unlike in Japan, everybody just jump into the main pool or soak their dirty feet. In Japan, even if it’s an open air hotspring, everybody have to wash their hair and body with provided liquid soap and shampoo before immersing in the pool. I hope they can introduce the Japanese onsen system here to make the place more hygienic. There are many other interesting places in Coron, but 2-3 days stay is enough.

      Nice unusual tour
      Just did this tour about 2 weeks ago. Could have been more serene. I was stuck with a local family with several teenagers who were shrieking all through the boat trip. That kind of killed the magic. The tour guide also joked with them on the lengthy trip there in their native language. I got very little explanation on what was happening. Saw plenty of fireflies and generally the venue was well organized. Very busy and we had to wait to eat. Food is standard, not very appealing, Philippine cuisine, with everyone stuffing themselves eating with their hands.I grossed me out. There is not much to do in Pueto Princesa, so this offers an opportunity to get out of the town and see something different.

      A nice way to see the places in the city; but took only 3 hrs
      We had half a day to spend at Puerto Princesa and we took this city tour. Really cool. we went all photo spots and the grand church. The guides were excellent. A good trip; but not much to see

      The fireflies were awesome!
      The trips starts with the hotel pickup then we proceeded to Baywalk where a banca was waiting for us. Then we were off at 630pm to a 15 minute boat ride to the floating restaurant. It is a very interesting and basic dinner with nothing to brag about. No interesting food to speak off. It was about 30 minutes then of to another 10 minutes before we switched to a smaller boat to be able to navigate the shallow river where mangroves abound. Upon entering the mangrove protected area the fireflies lit up the night where the trees lit like xmas trees with lights. It was an awesome experience for me and my children. They enjoyed taking the boat at night and exploring the mangrove areas and seeing the fireflies and planktons lit in the wake of the boat passing over the river. It is a sight to be seen.

    The natural beauty of mountain and sea. The underground river is indeed very impressive. The formation of Stalactites and Stalagmites are the wonders in the cave. They resemble many animals, things, and religious events. You are provided with audio guide throughout.
    My main complaint is it took too long to get there from Puerto Princesa. After two hours drive, Tourists are made to wait at the jetty for up to 4 hours to catch the motor boats to the underground river entrance. The local authority could easily improve the jetty access. My guess is they want to capitalise those waiting time so that the local community can do booming business.

    Excellent tour and great value for money. Echo was our tour guide who was absolutely superb! A really interesting, knowledgeable and personable person. We were picked up promptly at the agreed time from our hotel and made our way to the river. Everything was sorted by Echo when we were there so all transactions were seamless. The river tour was fantastic with an audio guide which was funny and I formative.

    Lunch was a buffet (which I was dreading!) which was delicious. We were the first group to arrive for lunch and there was so much choice at the buffet - something for everyone it certainly exceeded expectations.

    There was an added option of the zipline and mangrove tour which we hadn't opted for but we decided to add on last minute which was no problem. The zipline is 800m so not too big but good fun after a steep climb up some steps. The mangrove river had lots of facts about the area which was really interesting...but there are lots of mosquitoes so spray before!!

    Tour guide (Echo) was very helpful and informative, very courteous. We were picked up on time, the guide arranged for everything, all we needed to do was show up.

    However the ride was pretty bumpy, the driver seemed like he was in a hurry to get home. Twisting roads and rough ride made one of our companions throw up on the roadside.

    This was extremely worth it! We had Joshua as our guide and he was phenomenal! He made sure we were efficient and reduced our wait times by getting our group there and keeping us informed. our driver also got us there in record time so we didnt have to wait behind all the other groups.

    I enjoyed the this tour with Ed as the tour guide. He was very friendly and funny. There was a bit of confusion at the beginning, but it was resolved and we were able to go. I was able to do the Zip Line even though I didn’t initially pay for it as well as the Paddle Boat Tour. Some advice would be to bring water shoes or sandals as I was knee deep in water at times in shoes and socks. That aside, the tour was enjoyable.

    A wonderful day with a great tour guide who helped us in every aspect. The underground river is well worth seeing and the zip line over the bay was also very exciting for all the family, also the restaurant that was included was excellent.

    Hopped on this Underground River adventure last minute on Christmas Day of 2019, had a wonderfully good time. Tour guide took care of the group's well-being throughout the day, wait times were minimal, and driving was professional.

    Ziplining at Ugong was the perfect side quest to top off the day, assuming you have a little bit of energy left in you. Got dropped off at my hotel before 5pm. Highly recommend.
