This was the most amazing trip I've been on. Unforgettable! A friend recommended this and I wasn't let down. The islands were beautiful and crew and other travellers made the trip amazing. It is great what Tao are doing by employing, training and helping the local people. You really feel that you are special as this really is like a... More

The most fun and beautiful journey I've ever done by boat. The Tao crew were incredibly fun, the food was delicious and all the islands were gorgeous. It's a great way to make new friends with fellow travelers as well as learn about Filipino culture from the locals. I'd highly recommend this trip to anyone who loves immersing themselves into...

Amazing!! Unforgettable!! Wonderful trip and Tao is a thinking company achieving great results for the local people and environment. My partner and I have travelled regularly through the Philippines during 8 months of working here and Tao is the best experience we have had here by far. I have done similar camping through Palawan with other companies they do NOT... More

It was definitely the best trip of my life. I didn't really know what to expect when I booked the expedition. I was really worried since I was traveling alone but all those worries disappeared as soon as we started the briefing the day before the trip. This trip will literally teach you how to live a life. I will... More

Where to start? I could type many paragraphs and could still not do the trip/ experience justice. You are immersed into Filipino culture in the most picturesque and stunning setting. Living a fun, active, chilled, peaceful life for 5 days with little electricity is something special. I wondered if the cost of the trip was worth it and it absolutely... More

Me and 3 friends did the Sailing Group experience from El Nido to Coron. In total we were 24 people + 8 crew. The amazing & hard working crew are definitely what made the trip, all of them are so fun and helpful. Our team leader was Jeff S (jungle Jeff) who was an incredible host and one of the... More

I went on this trip from El Nido to Coron with my sister. Looking for alternate transposition between the Islands we came across this tour and booked in advance due to such positive reviews. It would have to be hands down one of the best authentic travel experiences I've had in my lifetime and I would do it all again... More

It could be a little bit expensive if you compare it to an a-la-carte tourist trip in El Nido. But what you're paying for is a chance to sleep on different islands each night without going back to your hotel in El Nido where you can easily lose at least 3 hours each day. This is truly a worry-free trip... More

I went on the Tao expedition on the Paraw (sailboat) from El Nido to Coron last April 28- May 2. It was simply one of the best travel experiences I have had in my home country. It is 5 days of sailing and staying in remote islands - if you want an authentic experience of Palawan, this is the trip... More
