The view is absolutely breathtaking! Creepy once you're inside but as you go on, the rock formations are very majestic! It was raining and I was all wet but it was all worth it! Would definitely go again with my family in the future!

We booked our tour through the Sheridan and had an incredible time. The experience is something I would recommend to anyone but definitely go as early as possible to avoid queues

You have to at least do it once! Do the trek to and take the boat back. It is a must experience nature attraction in the Philippines.

Hi. This is so last minuite so need answers asap please!! So basically in el nido now and thinking of doing a last minuite trip to Puerto princessa to be able to do the underground river tour. I was just wondering what time the tour finishes as I have a flight from the airport and need to arrive there by 3pm latest. Will I have time? If so, could you possibly recommend any tour operators who do cheap deals? Roughly how much did you pay? Thanks so much in advance!
