Meet your guide during morning pickup from your city hotel in Manila or Makati, and relax during the 2.5-hour drive south to Pagsanjan Gorge National Park, where you'll embark on a scenic boat ride aboard a dugout canoe called a banca.

 

En route to Pagsanjan, if time allows, your vehicle may stop at a local village where you can taste local delicacies including balut (fertilized duck egg. Then, enjoy a refreshing coconut drink before you slip on your life vest and float through the narrow Pagsanjan gorge lined with lush tropical vegetation. 

Two expert boatmen skillfully maneuver your craft upstream to Pagsanjan Falls. You’ll dock at a natural pool below the majestic cascade, and take an optional raft ride to a hidden cave, where you can swim and explore—so prepare to get wet!

After some free time to frolic in the water, return downstream as your river guide steers past huge boulders in churning waters at top speeds during an exhilarating ride known as ‘shooting the rapids.'

Conclude your full-day tour with lunch at the visitor’s center. Listen to a live band play music during your meal. Afterward, you’ll be taken back to your hotel.

Great day trip. We had hotel pickup from Manila. Lunch included after trip to the falls. Definitely recommend weekday trip to avoid crowds. We went on Monday. Only one other canoe there. All guides and boat drivers highly respectable and we had great time.

The falls were nice, but the close to 200.00 US is a lot, you're better off taking public transport to get close to the falls and then, purchase a boat ride for 20US.

It was so good to get out of Manila and see some green! The Falls are tremendous and the roar as you approach them is amazing. Make sure you wear old clothes and old trainers as you will get very wet! The meal afterward was beautiful too!

I would highly recommend taking this tour while visiting this area of the Philippines. The boat ride to Pagsanjan Falls was awesome and the scenery was beautiful. The boatmen do a hell of a job getting you to the falls and back. Kudos to them.

The tour guide and driver were super. The scenery was amazing and the food was good. The tour guide had told us what the daily earnings were. We took this to be a hint as to what to tip the boatmen. We attempted to tip the boatmen a full days earnings each. The boatmen became aggressive and were asking for more. Its not a lot being honest and I wasn't concerned from a safety perspective but it just really left a bad taste in my mouth about the whole trip. I gave the feedback privately to Viator but never heard anything back.

As a single traveller it wasn't clear I'd have to share up close and personal with a stranger - essentially sitting on their lap - this should be made clear as I wasn't comfortable with the trip. Also being stuck in the canoe in the same position for such a long time is quite challenging for older people like the man I was paired with - which wasn't made clear to him upfront. Value for money overall for me was very poor for what was provided - essentially a van ride, basic lunch and a canoe trip which you could see prices advertised locally for a tiny fraction of what was charged. Net the falls are definitely worth seeing but be prepared and I'd suggest arrange yourself

The entire trip was really good. However, the price is too expensive as the locals says with this price, you can pay for 2. Not forgetting you need to pay for the boat driver tip of about 10USD each.

I went on this tour as a typhoon was moving in, and I would still recommend it. The views as you go up river are stunning, and so much fun to go under the falls.

The drive to the falls takes about 2-2.5 hours. The guide will talk the whole way be prepared. The trip up and back on the river takes about 2 hours and is fantastic. You will get wet. Take a towel, change of clothes and shoes. Suggest lunch after the boat trip so have a big breakfast.

Don G
, Dec 2014
The offered tour here is considered a VIP tour from the tour company in the Philippines. It is a really convenient way to book a tour to Pagsanjan, and the tour would be just for you and your travel companions--essentially a private tour. The included meal is a nice way to end the river ride. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable (he was a retired history and literature professor of the University of the Philippines) about the local towns in Laguna as we made our way to Pagsanjan, and the resort staff where we boarded was very attentive. For travelers on a budget, and not minding if there are others on the tour, it would be cheaper to contact the tour company directly. For a small group wanting a private tour experience with an included meal, this price here is still a bit pricey, but worth it for the convenience.

Fantastic trip away from the hectic Manila! The falls are very beautiful! Don't miss out the chance to boat in the back of the falls:) On the way to the falls, we also stopped at some local vendors and tried out some local sweets, as well as the notorious balut! ohhh I had such a blast!
