1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Enjoyed all of it. Very full on but great holiday

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Some of the treks on the rice terraces are a little challenging but our guide gave us options if we did not want to trek.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes given a metal water bottle at the start of the trip and the hotels all gave us free mineral water to fill up our bottles. Used local guides and went to small family run restaurants. Always encouraged to buy from local traders and stayed at an Enchanted farm that is a sustainable community.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Best trip I have done, and I have been on many trips. Our guide Rupert went over and beyond his call of duty.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

1. Hiking in the Cordillera rice terraces - fabulous scenery. 2. The people - so polite and happy. 3. Lack of tourists in rural areas - it's all very new to the locals. 4. It's dirt cheap, but don't expect luxury!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

1. Go with an open mind and just do it! 2. It's not for the faint hearted, it's very basic outside of tourist areas. 3. Food very sweet and fatty - they eat what ever is available including dogs. 4. Accommodation even at the high end - basic.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

1. Definitely - although pollination from traffic is high! 2. Little infrastructure to deal with tourists - lots of building El Nido which appears chaotic.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Fantastic experience - it's a destination that's new for many westerners - go before it gets spoilt!!!
