The past three years has seen us constantly evolving. Now, we take another leap. Beyond storytelling and sharing travel guides and reviews, we’re transforming our blog into a platform that will offer true value to our audience.

Through our website, we will to bring together travelers, local guides, service providers, and tour companies in the Philippines to create your life’s best trips.

We see this as an end to end support to travelers who look for ideas and inspiration in our articles, and then right away want help from expert tour providers to plan a trip that’s hassle-free and worth their time and money. We’ll take them where the action is. We’ll provide options all in one page, without them needing to comb through the internet to make the right decision.

On the other hand, we help local guides, tour organizers, travel companies, and service providers with their much needed online presence. As a business partner, we help them get noticed, grow their ventures, and provide them data to be able to deliver the best trips to their clients.


Tour Companies & Local Guides

If you are a travel agency or company who organizes tours in key destinations in the Philippines, this blog is the perfect venue for you. Show the world what you’ve got and why you stand out. Get noticed by your potential customers who visit our blog for travel ideas.

For instance, if you provide services to Caramoan Islands, your business name and contact details will appear at the end of all articles for that destination. This will help readers contact you quickly to inquire about your services until they book their trip.

Because we want to advertise only the best service providers, we have set a list of minimum requirements that need to be met:

Local guides may need to present proof that they are trained and accredited for tour guiding. Car and transportation providers also need to submit a copy of their business permit.

2) You must be in service for at least 6 months. Familiarity with the business is good, but we put high premium on expertise and quality. We want to ensure that our partners have broad experience in the travel industry and are well equipped to respond to the needs of our customers.
