Day 1: Airport Pick Up

Location: Cebu City

Accommodation: Red Planet Cebu

Welcome to the Philippines, it's hot, isn't it?! Get ready to meet your group of legends, including your TruNinja! Soon you'll wonder how you explored anywhere without them. We'll pick you up from Cebu airport and bring you to our hotel in Cebu City for the first night of the best week of your life (so far). This evening we'll grab dinner and get to know each other over a Pina Colada or five.

TRANSPORT: You will be met at the airport and transferred to the hotel to start your adventure.

Day 2: Moalboal & Simala Church

Location: Cebu City

Accommodation: Love's Beach & Dive Resort Moalboal

Day 2 we're heading for the gorgeous seaside town of Moalboal, (pronounced mole-bowl if you were wondering). We'll visit the stunning Simala Church, this place will undoubtedly end up on your Instagram. It's pretty much one of the most spectacular buildings you'll ever see. It's also a long-standing myth that miracles happen here, so if you're looking for next week's lottery numbers, then you're in the right place. After a walking tour and short history lesson, we continue into Moalboal where the afternoon is ours! Grab an iced coffee, treat your tense self to a traditional Filipino massage or just check out the local town. There are real hidden gems in Moalboal, and our Travel Ninjas know them all!

ACTIVITY:

Day 3: Sardine Run, Snorkelling & Turtles

Location: Moalboal

Accommodation: Love's Beach & Dive Resort Moalboal

Meals Included: BREAKFAST

Rise and shine! We kick off day 3 by hitting the sea. ARGGH MATEY. That's our best pirate impression btw, but don't worry the waterways are full of friendly local fishermen and the odd tourist. Grab your snorkelling gear as we head to one of The Philippines' best snorkelling spots, a rainbow of coloured corals and marine life. Swim amongst the Nemos and Dorys of the ocean and glide alongside some of the island's local turtles. There really is something magical about seeing our hard-shelled green amigos thriving in their natural habitat. *Secretly cries happy tears*. Later in the day, you'll experience something a bit special - The Sardine Run. Hundreds of thousands of sardines swimming simultaneously in a giant school, a spectacle you'd only ever see in a documentary by the legend David Attenborough himself. In the evening, we head out to explore the local nightlife. Practise showing off what you saw in the day through the movement of dance. You know, the classics - BIG FISH, LITTLE FISH, CARDBOARD BOX!

ACTIVITY:

Day 4: Kawasan Waterfalls

Location: Moalboal

Accommodation: Love's Beach & Dive Resort Moalboal

Meals Included: BREAKFAST, LUNCH

An early start you'll have no trouble with as we're off canyoneering. If you haven't felt like the ultimate, cut off from the world, backpacker island babe you are yet then today is THE day. It's iconic. Whether you're an adrenaline junkie who's pure thrill for frills runs through your very veins, parkour 24/7 or if you're on a chilled out, laid back, I'm not jumping off anything sort of vibe. It's cool, we've got you. We can't promise you that you won't be nicknamed Chicken for the rest of the trip, but whatever. Like we said It's cool. Float downstream and get involved in some rock-hopping. Get the go pro ready for this one and make a splash... Once you're all splashed out with fingers shrivelled up like prunes we'll head for a late lunch, getting ready to finish the day with a lazy evening to recharge those batteries before moving on to our next destination... Boracay! Known for its famous powdery white-sand beaches and azure waters, amazing beach clubs and vibrant marine life!

ACTIVITY:

Day 5: Moalboal/Boracay Island

Location: Moalboal

Accommodation: Grand Blue Beach Hotel

Meals Included: BREAKFAST

We’re heading to Boracay!
Today we head to Cebu airport before catching a short flight to Caticlan and then a 15 minute boat road to the idyllic island of Boracay! Buckle up, it is a beauty. Known for it’s incredible nightlife and white sandy beaches, we can’t promise you won’t fall in love with the island and the 10/10 vibes there. If you ever had the urge to pack up and move across the world, well.. Boracay may just convince you too. We check into the hotel for our last 3 nights so unpack your last pair of clean socks, that shirt that's now far too creased that you've been saving to wear and settle in. We arrive late afternoon, so let’s explore! Sunsets in Boracay are next level. We’re talking an ombre of golden oranges blending into lilac’s and deep purples. Yep, I-N-S-A-N-E. So we’ll watch the sun go down over a few beers on the beach or join a sunset cruise for cocktails. Afterwards, we see where the night takes us. Psssttt.. It’ll be one of Boracay’s best cocktail bars!

Day 6: Surf Lesson And Beach Day

Location: Boracay Island

Accommodation: Grand Blue Beach Hotel

Meals Included: BREAKFAST

Beach days & Sunset Paraw Sailing!
Today’s a lazy morning, wake up when you like and grab a fruit smoothie nearby. The morning and early afternoon are free to explore, so head to the beach and catch some rays or perhaps hit the shops and grab some souvenirs for back home.. Or a postcard (We did say you might want to move here and never return!) Late afternoon we’re going Paraw sailing as the sun goes down! Never heard of it? Paraw sailing is a local sail boat activity in Boracay which uses two outriggers and two sails and calmly and gently sails you to the very best viewpoints and spots around the island. Thought last night’s sunset was good? Wait till you see this one TruFam! As the sparkling stars replace the sunset, we’ll head out for dinner together and grab a few beers. It’s the penultimate night.. It’s only right! Right?

Day 7: Island Boat Trip

Location: Boracay Island

Accommodation: Grand Blue Beach Hotel

Meals Included: BREAKFAST

It's our last full day together as the TruFam we've become. We're not crying, you are. As always, we're ending our trip on a high... Did someone say BOAT PARTY?! We'll set sail, dance the day away and take it all in for one last time. We're pretty much all professional beach babes at this point so grab your favourite snorkel & mask and jump straight in those tropical waters or even better, grab yourself a floatie, kayak or paddle board and chillax while reminiscing on what we can only assume has been the best 16 days of your life. In the evening we head out for a farewell dinner over sunset cocktails. Our last Hurrah, the final act of the show. One last performance and we're not ending without a standing ovation! Dance on the table, order 2 desserts or simply have 1 too many shots before proceeding to tell every single one of your TruFam how much you love them. Hey, we love ya too!

Day 8: Chilled Checkout

Location: Boracay Island

Meals Included: BREAKFAST

Departure day and we're not ready to say goodbye. You've become a part of our TruFam which means you'll forever be a part of us. That's how family works, right? How will we go on without you? We can't...so let's just say its not Au revoir, it's more Arnie with the "I'll be back".
If you're travelling on further or heading home, our TruNinjas are on hand to help you on your way. Shaka's up, let's hug it out, you bloody legends. And finally…

Hasta La Vista Baby.

ACTIVITY: Your trusty travel ninja is on hand to assist you.

Would definitely recommend doing this tour!

I have just finished the 8 day East tour and it’s

I have just finished the 8 day East tour and it’s been an amazing experience. My tour guides Richard and Amer were great and made me feel welcome straight away. The activities were incredible and in 8 days I was able to see so much. The whole tour was well organised and I had so much fun. I have so many happy memories from this experience. I’d definitely recommend doing this tour!

Katie  

I would definitely recommend this tour to my friends!

Chris was amazing!! I joined half way through the

Chris was amazing!! I joined half way through the island hopper tour and he was so welcoming, ensuring that we were integrated to the group really well. He was always on hand if anything was wrong or if anybody needed advice or had questions, but equally was so much fun and was very much a part of the group. He's an asset to your team and made my time in the Philippines that bit easier and more enjoyable, since he was so fun to be around but also looked after us. I had an issue where I lost my passport temporarily and he was brilliant, very helpful and reassuring. I would definitely recommend this tour to friends. Thanks Tru Travels & Chris!!

The tour was amazinggg!! Had the best time with the group - we had only 6 people but Chris got us all involved and made it way easier to be intimate and make bonds to enjoy the trip with each other! The accommodation in moalboal was so stunning - and all the activities were incredible! Canyoneering and scuba diving especially 🤩 The sunset sail in boracay was so beautiful too! Chris was a great laugh and really easy to talk to and get along with. He took us to some great bars and restaurants and told us a lot about the Philippines from his time here. He was always up for a laugh and a joke! Could be better at pool (we were winning till he potted the black 🎱) Thanks for a great experience Chris!

Jess  

Excellent!

The tour was well organised, great value for money and the places we stayed were excellent. The activities were brilliant and Chris made a great suggestion to go diving in Moalboal, which was just majestic.
