Day 1

We meet in Cebu City where, after airport transfer and check-in, we have a trip meeting and dinner.

A morning boat ride takes us to Bohol. We ride on a quiet dirt road to the Tarsier Sanctuary for a visit. Then we are back on the bikes and on to the picturesque Loboc River.

Day 3

We start the day with an uphill climb before the terrain evens out and we ride through a mahogany forest, rice fields, and small villages. Eventually we arrive in the area of the mesmerizing Chocolate Hills.

Day 4

A diverse day of riding beginning with 15 km of flat roads trough rice fields followed by a a tough 17 km climb into the rice-terrace covered hills. A rewarding 20 km downhill then precedes a final stretch along the coast to Anda.

What a beautiful lush green scenery to travel trough by bike! Even in the rainy season no problem to discover these islands. We had a really good time with our guide Diego. He is such a good rider, funny, his english is excellent and he has a very good local knowledge. He vas very flexible and could adapte the program at our wishes (we have been only two of us!). Thanks a lot, we will come again, Elisabeth and Hans Peter from Switzerland

This tour was very well planned and managed. The resorts and hotels were all excellent and very romantic and peaceful. The cycling was no problem but of course the heat and sun made some of the days strenuous.

I personally prefer shorter tours and there is a 'rest day' and a 'ride around an Island' which could easily be missed out if the tour is shortened. I understand that most people travel a long way to join the tours and need more time to make the journey worthwhile.

All things considered, I rate this tour highly and would recommend it to other SpiceRoads cyclists. The Philippine Islands visited are very beautiful and the local life very picturesque.
