Take a boat from Taal Lake to Taal Volcano

Different places has its different beauty, I can say. I've seen the Tangkuban Perahu's crater in Indonesia, swam at Mt. Pinatubo's crater lake and saw Mt. Mayon' s hot lava flow at its foot and I can say all these places are masterpieces of Nature! But I'm not to tell you of this places of course, it's on another list of tours :).

There are other beautiful Nature - crafted work of art out there and one among the lists is Taal Volcano. Having the 2nd most active volcano post in the Philippines, Taal Volcano has its own splendid statuesque. Whether you see it from the ridges of Tagaytay or Mt. Maculot, or you trek "the heck" a long dusty rough road to the crater lake with the heat of the sun and the volcano, surely you can tell how Taal volcano is different from other wonderful sights.


Let's make it local style and custom fit for you! Leave the plan and its execution to me. But be aware that Nature not only has its beauty, it has its own behavior as well! But don't worry I will have to check from time to time if it's erupting so we can turn back as soon as possible. Our safety must be the first priority. :)

A Recent Review of this tour

We really enjoyed our tour to the Taal Volcano with John Elton and his knowledge about typhoons, earthquakes etc., for his flexibility to let us get the photos when and where we wanted, for a wonderful meal in the hotel restaurant near the volcano and for the opportunity to get to know John on the personal level. A pleasant surprise for this tour was a visit to the Puzzle Museum. This personalized approach is just what we wanted out of a vacation.
