Before your island-hopping Philippines tour
Your trip includes airport pick up. Just let us know your flight details into Manila so that we can arrange this for you.
After your island-hopping Philippines tour
Your trip finishes on the beautiful island of Siargao. If you’re staying on longer in the Philippines, we can help organise any onward travel ( including our add-on trips). If you’re just doing the 16-day Philippines trip and then going home and need to get back to Manila then it’s a short van ride to Siargao airport, with a 1h 45m flight to Manila. There are one or two direct flights per day from Siargao arriving in Manila at around 5:30PM and 6:30PM. The earliest we can recommend booking an onward flight out of Manila is around 9 pm on day 16 of your tour.
