Full description
Following pickup from your hotel in Manila, head straight to the Pagsanjan Falls on a 2.5-hour drive south. From there, your driver will assist you in getting to the paddle raft, which will be manned by two local guides. Experience a multiple-rapid adventure as you continue toward the falls. Swim to the cave that lies within the magnificent Pagsanjan Falls, feeling refreshed by the cold water. Set off on another two-hour drive over to the Taal Volcano ridge in Tagaytay City for the Taal Volcano eruption sightseeing tour. Taal Volcano suddenly erupted at 2:36 PM on Sunday, January 12, 2020, forcing all to flee from the island. For the next 24 hours, ashes coming from the crater traveled all the way to Metro Manila and nearby areas as 150,000 people fled from their homes. Taal Volcano is now considered the most active volcano complex after this eruption. See the devastation firsthand and take in dramatic views of Taal Lake and the steaming Volcano Island from the ridges of Tagaytay City. Enjoy lunch (at your own expense) with a view of the whole lake, in the center of which steams the Taal Volcano, the Philippines smallest but most active volcano as of today.

This is a must do activity( day trip) in Manila. The taal volcano and its surroundings are lovely and a different experience. The pagsanjan river rowing and waterfall is an experience in itself . The rowers take you up the short rapids for about 45 min before you reach the majestic waterfall. Then the bamboo raft takes you beneath the fall. On return you raft down the gentle rapids. It is safe but be mindful of the sun and long sitting ( about 45 min)in the narrow boat. Our driver cum guide Richard was knowledgeable and came on time for pick up. Advised us on the trip and kept good company during the trip. The car was clean and his driving is safe. Overall worth the time and money spent
