Private tour guide John Elton

John Elton

Quezon City, NCR, Philippines

Mabuhay! I'm John and I grew up in Manila and in the Visayas.

I started taking people around the Philippines when I was in university, and have made lasting friendships with tourists both local and from abroad. I love traveling. I love taking pictures. I love nature, the environment, and everything that forms it, both living and non-living. And I love its Creator.

Additional words from friends: "He's no shy guy. Soft-spoken yet highly credible, educator and photographer John Elton is 'The Manager'. He has this way of conversing with common folk such that they're exchanging smiles and contacts in no time. But hey, that's not flirting, just establishing connections. He is a walking directory of contacts--local guides, accommodation, tourism officers, caterers. Name it, he probably has it. And by the way, he loves puns and corny jokes. Expect a lot of sitcom moments. "


I'm a University graduate, currently enrolled in a Masters Program at an International Graduate School, team leader of a travel and outdoor adventure group, an environmental protection and a Philippine Red Cross volunteer.
