Begin your full-day trip with morning pickup at your Manila or Makati hotel. It’s a scenic drive to Tagaytay Ridge, a picturesque viewpoint situated at an elevation of 2,200 feet (671 meters). 

En route, make a stop at St. Joseph Parish Church for a glimpse of the Las Piñas Bamboo Organ, whose 800 bamboo pipes create a unique sound. Learn from your guide about this national treasure, built in the 19th century by Spanish priest Father Diego Cera. 

On arrival in Tagaytay, drive to the summit of Mt Gonzales to the ‘Palace in the Sky’—an impartial mansion of former Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos, converted into an urban enclave called People's Park in the Sky. From here, savor the cooler climate and iconic vista overlooking Taal Volcano, an island in the center of Taal Lake and the second most active volcano in the Philippines.

At midday, stop by a local restaurant to enjoy a lunch of traditional Filipino specialties.

On the return drive to Manila, stop at a pineapple or coffee plantation to sample local produce, or visit one of the wood-carving shops dotting the roadside (time permitting).

Compact trip in a short time
Ludk_H
, Jun 2022
The trip was very good, especially we were only 2 travelers with the driver and the guide. The guide was a friendly local providing many additional information on life in Philippines. The weather was very good, however the fog slightly decreased the quality of the view on the panorama. I also liked the timing of the trip, starting in the morning at 8 a.m. and being back to Manila early afternoon after 3 p.m.

Half-hearted guide made it a day worth forgetting
Eric W

The other reviews contain the details - the palace in the sky is pretty run-down, the views of Tagaytay are from a distance and on our trip - obscured by rain. Lunch was fine, and the Jeepney factory - was sad... Really though - what sapped the energy from the tour was the guide. He had a very limited narration, consisting of few anecdotes per place and "now we are leaving city X and entering city Y" - once he'd done the bare minimum, he returned to chatting with the driver in tagalog. The tour guests felt like an afterthought

Quite expensive for what is included, this is actually called Panoramic Tagaytay by the organising company, and so is very sedate and a bit dull. Mostly just photo stops, and a scenic drive. My favourite part was the Jeepney factory and the Bamboo Organ, although I do admit that Tagaytay was beautiful, despite the wet day.

This was a really cool trip and highly recommended. First stop was where Jeepney's are made from the ground up. Great history on the Jeepney's and how they are customized per owner. The Las Pinas Organ was amazing and it sounded fantastic. From there it was off to Tagatay where we had a traditional Filipino lunch and then checked out the Palace in the Sky - amazing views of Taal Volcano and the lake. We even got to ride in a Jeepney up to the Palace! But the unexpected surprise was a stop on the way home at a small store that sold Civat Cat Coffee - coffee beans collected from the poop of the cat after they eat the coffee berries! What an experience!

This was a good day out, although it involved a lot of time in the minibus due to heavy traffic. We were picked up from the hotel at 0910 and returned at 1720. The visit to the church with the Bamboo Organ was very interesting, with a local guide showing us around. Next there was a visit to a Jeepney factory with time to take photos, followed by a visit to the deserted Marcus home where we had a drink from a young coconut. We then had a ride in a Jeepney, followed by lunch on Tagatay Ridge, overlooking the lake and the volcano. Lunch was nothing special, but there was a wide choice available. On the way home we had a free sample of the renowned coffee, made from beans which have passed though the intestines of a civit cat. No-one on the tour was very impressed, but we were glad of the opportunity to try it! A well-informed guide and an interesting day.

This tour is overpriced. You see the Tall Volcano and Palace in Sky from very far distance. Las Pinas Bamboo Organ is the Church. We also went to Jeepney Factory. As it was on Saturday we were not able to see how they make Jeepney. Tour Guide was good.

I loved Tagaytay, I wish I had more time to spend in that area. I was on my own and there was no one else joining me on the trip so I was treated like a VIP. The guide and driver were very nice and helpful and the trip was exactly as advertised, the pick up and drop off were very smooth and on time. I enjoyed it very much and would recommend it highly.

Janet B

The tour by itself I would have probably rate a 4 - very much as described Fun sights, great views - well worth it. The trip was made amazing by our tour guide, Rolando. Rolando's knowledge far exceeded the paces we visited he shared so much about Filipino culture, other tours we should consider, some pitfalls we might run into while working here, some of which I had already run into. He was able to answer any question we threw at him. We were an extremely small group due to the Manny Pacquiao fight that day, but there was never a lull in the conversation. I wish I had done this tour earlier in my visit as I think it would have help with adjusting to living and working here. During my time here, I did do two tours booked on viator.com where Baron Travel was the local travel provider the other was the WWII Corregidor Island Tour, also well worth it and Baron Travel made it as easy as possible. I highly recommend this method, especially if you are not travel savvy, like myself - all you have to do is worry about being at your pick up location on time, the rest is taken care.

AMAZING trip. This is a full fun packed day. All the stops are interesting and really give a flavor of different aspects of Filipino life and culture. There are so many fun things that you get to see on this trip. I would recommend this trip to anyone, hands down. Omar was our tour guide, and he is fantastic.

It was not a nice day so tour guide decided to skip the Palace in the sky. The highlight of the tour was the Lunch. The volcano was okay and so was the Pipe Organ but not worth an entire day of driving on the bus to see. The lunch was nice but once again not worth an entire of driving to obtain. Could have had the same lunch in Manila

Had a nice trip outside the city to see a beautiful area. Luckily the haze lifted by lunch time, and it was a great view of the volcano and mountains. Appreciate the included lunch, and the fact they let you choose from several entrees. I was fortunate to have my guide from the Manila city tour. Omar, with me again. He is a fine gentleman, and a wealth of information about the area. The bamboo organ is so unique, and a national treasure for the philippines. Only negative is the traffic, but we had an experienced driver who got there and back safely.

OUr tour guides and drivers were excellent on this tour. I felt that we saw many great places with Richard. He gave us a mountain of information about Manila and the local areas we were exploring. I would think this tour is a must. The views from Palace in the Sky were amazing and when we stopped for lunch a group were singing in the resturant. The views to Taal Volcano and lake incredible. Then we moved on to San Ferdinand and interacted in the museum and church where the Las Pinas Bamboo organ are housed. A lovely lady played the organ for us which was very special. I loved this tour. We began at Raffles hotel which was an experience in itself. Our driver was so patient in horrific traffic and we enjoyed our drive as much as the tour. Thank you
