bohol itinerary

as promised, here's a re-post of our bohol itinerary...take note that this was way back 2008, so make some adjustments with the costs...hope this helps =)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

hubby and i together with some friends went to bohol last oct. 24-27, 2008. it was fun and surely, if given a chance, we would definitely go back =)

we booked our tickets early to avail of the piso flight promo of Cebu Pacific and then we have a contact person who arranged the tours and the accomodation for us. for us, it's better to get a packaged tour so that everything is already fixed and we don't have to worry about every small detail of the trip. of course food is not included in the package, except for the Loboc River Cruise which includes a lunch buffet. the overall cost of the packaged tour we think, is just right since there are 8 of us to split the price.

total cost per head for the tour & accomodation is Php 4,300.00 which includes all the land tours, 1 buffet lunch, airconditioned room (for 2 persons) near the beach, and the sea tours. not bad eh? we think it's a good deal =)

food cost is quite expensive in panglao. you must allot at least 200 pesos per head per meal. or better yet, if you're staying at a place with a kitchen, buy foods to cook in tagbilaran first before going to panglao. ask your guide/driver about it.

we are supposed to go to hinagdanan cave but we spent too much time at the souvenir shop...hehe...so if you really like to go to the cave, just inform your guide that you want to go there first.
