This tour is a nice tour, however it is not suitable for disable or travelers with difficulties of walking. Trekking it might be easy cause of the horses, but once at the top of the crater, we have to walk in rough stairs that might be slippery. I don't really suggest this tour for disables

Taal: The lake, the volcano and the crater

The Taal Lake is located in the southern part Luzon's island, in the province of Batangas. It is considered the third largest basin in the Philippines after Laguna de Bay and Lake Lanao. At the center, it is located the eponymous volcano. Although the volcano is still active, it is one of the most requested tourist destination.

You will have the opportunity to venture and navigate the lake Taal, to reach and explore the volcano at the same time.
Don't miss it, visit this beautiful tourist site and discover the wonders and charm to get on and observe the crater of an active volcano.


The countryside's tour often becomes longer than 8 hours because of the traffic, there will be, perhaps toilet stop in both way.
