We had a very nice trip also thanks to well organized Junji. The fact we had a phone given by Junji was great since we were stuck in Palawan during the tyfoon.
The underwater experience was great, the people very friendly and helpful when needed.
The excursion are a different story. We liked the private part, our own car or banka. We were surprised by the many tourists and the way some excursions were organized. So crowded and often with so little respect for the (especially underwater) gems the Philippines has. The big group of Chinese/Korean people who are totally disrespecting everything and everybody. The land tour like looking for the Tarsier monkey was a deception, this has nothing to with nature anymore. It is like walking into somebody's backyard, quickly take a picture ( if you get a chance with all the Chinese who want a selfie with the tarsier) and get out. This may be oke for the Chinese but is definitely not what we are looking for in a trip ( and I'm sure many more European).
We started in Manila and had a nice diner with Junji. We left for Dumaguete and stayed there for 5 nights, *******, great hotel, very friendly! ********hotel for our trip.

We left for Dumaguete and stayed there for 5 nights, *******, great hotel, very friendly! ********hotel for our trip. Did some excurioson like Apo island (great, not to crowded), oslob ( not sure what to think of that), Kawasan falls (did not like, over crowded and totally exploited place). we then left for the********River, nice resort, across the river a lot of noice/music coming from the houses. Tarsier I already wrote. We had a short land excursion because one of us was sick and had to see a doctor. We then left for Panglao. Really nice hotel***********, friendly people, to many Chinese/Korean. Went to Balicasag island, we were not crazy about, hanging on a rope to see the corals, hmm. We then left for ********. Nice hotel **********, found it extremely pitiful you could not swim in front of the hotel because of all the boats in front of it. The excursions were very nice thanks to a great crew in our private banks. We drove to Daluyan, nice resort, we stayed longer because of the typhoon. Did not get to do excursions because of typhoon. Flew to Manila and home
