Bohol and Cebu (Itinerary and Basic Expenses)

I think it would be helpful if I run down a summary page of our 5 days, 4 nights Bohol-Cebu Combo. Remember that we are a party of 6 with 2 kids in tow.  It was very convenient for us to have a service and a guide.  We planned our itinerary based on our interests and the sights' proximity to each other.  I didn't take note of all our expenses. But I remembered the higher priced ones, the bulk of our expenses.  So here it goes.

  1. HI, I would like to know if Kuya Tatsky also arranged for your Dolphin Watching and Island Hopping at Balicasag and Virgin Islands. Thanks Anya

    1. Hi Anya. Yes, Kuya Tatsky arranged for our tour. Kuya Jojo (Mendez) was our driver.

  2. hi... san po nkkbili ng tickets ng starcraft?

    1. Hi! Nabili po namin yung tickets malapit sa gate ng pier. Isang hilera po sila doon. :-) Hope this helps. :-)

  3. hi, can i quickly ask if malapit lang ang alona swiss hotel sa beach side. According sa mga reviews its about 10 minutes walking, is this true? and is it safe to walk especially at night?

  4. Hi! Thanks for dropping by. Yes, it's about ten minutes walk. On all the days we were there, we just walked from Alona Swiss to Alona Beach and vice versa. I think it's safe because there are a lot of policemen deployed around the area and tourists abound. Hope this helps. :-)

  5. hi po. pano po kayo nag-avail ng ticket ng starcraft? and nag-rereserve po ba sila ng ticket pag ni-contact yung cellphone numbers nila na nasa website? I'm worried baka nagkakaubusan sila if on the day na po kami bumili. planned trip sana october this year.

    1. Hi Alven,

      Tumawag lang kami to ask if we need to reserve. Ang sabi sa amin hindi namand daw. They just advised us to be there at least an hour before our scheduled departure. Wala silang on-line reservation facility. So we just followed their advise. Good luck on your trip. :-)


I would love to hear from you. ;-)
