Fidel was most informative and showed us a wonderful day in Puerto Princesa. We were a group of six friends traveling to the Philippines on a cruise trip. Fidel provided interesting historical information which added depth to the sites we visited. Our favorite stop was at Iwahig Prison and Penal Farm. We also found the presentation given by the people in the tribal village to be informative and well done. An all round excellent day.
