Honestly, could the operators of this so called "Cruise" make any less effort if they tried? Piped music interspersed with a couple of stops at some cement dioramas of historical characters dotted along the otherwise uninteresting river bank and that was about it. Very cheap...More

You get on the one boat they have that's working, they turn on the audio recorded voice over Filipino folk songs, and that is your tour guide throughout the 30 minute cruise. Takes about 10 minutes to one side of the river to see the...More

This is not about the River Cruise, or any other specific activities being offered in the city: it is about the cluster of old structures in what is called "The Heritage". I normally just stay in my room when I travel, most of which are...More

The Vigan Heritage River Cruise cost of 100 Php each. I thought it was a waste of 45 minutes. Nothing to see in the Mestizo River. A few locals swimming and thats it. No scenic value. There are 5 life-sized tableaus each which a voiceover...More
