Mary did a great job taking care of everything for us, she even suggested an additional part to our experience that was incredible. She had great ideas and suggestions for things and made it very easy for us. I would recommend her experience to anyone.

Mary will customize your experience and seamlessly arrange everything with what seems like little effort so you feel like you are in very good hands. She is easily very trustworthy to stay and watch your belongings while you swim.

Snorkeling with whales sharks!!! I mean wow 🤩 I couldn’t have asked for a better tour guide! Mary was very friendly and kept us updated as things progressed. She’s very professional and knows what she’s talking about. I highly recommend this excursion with Mary! If you like to hike or are an adventure nut like me then I recommend you also do the longest zip line to the Kawasan falls. This saves you about 45 mins of hiking. Which is very helpful because I needed all that energy for the cliff jumping in the Kawasan falls. I recommend you bring water shoes and guys, wear something other than boxers or regular underwear under you swim suite for this event. I say this because there a lot of walking, getting wet and drying off again, burns the inner thighs a bit. All in all one of the greatest tours I have been on and did some of the craziest things I’ve done on one trip. Thank you Mary and our driver! You both helped make my first time to the Philippines one of my greatest adventures.

It was an amazing experience. Mary is a very kind, humble and good person, she was always ready to help me. We took a public bus(cause I was the only one in the group) and went to oslob. Mary booked us a room there and the next day at 5 am we set out for whale shark beach. Personally for me it wasn’t as exciting as the next part of the adventure, but for those of you who are fascinated by the underwater nature this is a really cool experience one should try at least once in life. After that for additional 1500 pesos we set out for Kawasan falls. And that has been one of the best experiences in my life. The jungle around those falls look stunning. For extra 500 you can ride the zip line to the falls instead of walking for 40 minutes. It is one of the longest zip lines in the world and is 868 meters long. After you proceed to the falls it really amazes you. It’s like a natural water park, the night of the jumps varies from 3 to 12 meters. I did all the jumps. It’s really scary at the last 12 meters jump, but if you follow your instructions you will be fine. At the last jump the crowd actually cheers and support you if you’re afraid. In overall it was one of the best trips I’ve ever been to, and all of that thanks to Mary.
