Overall, my sister, friends and I had a blast. Batanes was great, and our experience with Batanes Travel and Tours and Batanes Resort made it even better. We didn’t mind the amount of money we spent since we felt every centavo was well worth it. We wouldn’t hesitate to book with Batanes Travel and Tours again or stay at Batanes Resort on our next trip to Batanes.

We, Jaime, Elisa, and Rachelle Mariposa of Quezon City, were very happy the way our vacation to Batanes turns out to be. Facing uncertainties due to unpredictable weather last January, all doubts quickly evaporated upon landing in Basco airport. Breath taking scenery plus the warm welcome that greeted us, overcome the coldness that we felt when we arrived. The accommodations, food, are very good,and the guide, well versed and very insightful.Very, very much satisfied and given the chance to return, why not?

If people want good beaches, that is not Batanes, that is Boracay. If they want good forests, that is Palawan or Davao. What we have here is what we all Filipinos had before things were changed by progress. We are very serious about cultural preservation and we hope people will appreciate our efforts. The beauty of Batanes will speak for itself.


Thank you for exposing us to the ingenuity of the people from Batanes. Thank you for making our honeymoon trip enjoyable. We definitely made the right choice here. 🙂 Please keep Batanes away from the bad influence of commercialism because the simple of the people and your resources are your best assets!We love Batanes!

Batanes is such a wonder. No words could express its essence. A must place to see and I truly admire people like you and the locals who put effort in preserving such a wonderful gift. Please keep it as is and allow it to be there for future generations to enjoy. Overall, arrangements, staff, locals have been excellent. I would just like suggest that the inns, hotels provide more information on their places, as this is the aspect where travellers preferences differ. As for me, I came to see Batanes so I am not particular with accommodation, I just need a place to sleep. But back home, my friend would surely ask for recommendations for a hotel and all I would say is for them to check the website as definitely, their tastes would differ from mine. Again, thank you for the excellent service and for sharing with us your beautiful home.

My experience in Batanes was great and wonderful. Beautiful and outraging sceneries. Courteous people every where we go. Super friendly tour guide Ms. Tita Donato. The service was great. Delicious food. Unique road signs “BLOW UR HORN”. Batanes was the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen. Cleanest and greenest. We would surely love to come back. 🙂

Everything said about Batanes is true: the breathtaking landscape, the friendly people and the unique culture. The people of Batanes Travel and Tours were very accommodating from the time I landed until boarding time of my return trip. I recommend their services to others.

Batanes is a slice of heaven! The views are breathtaking- picturesque lighthouses, cattle grazing on dramatic cliffs, waves smashing on natural rock formations, ruins of stonehouses and scenes from daily village life. BTT gave us a private tour so important to photographers who need not worry about being hurried. We took our sweet time capturing moments and immortalizing the place in photos. Thank you BTT for a tour tailored to our needs and interests. You made it a breeze for us to enjoy the sceneries, the food and the hospitality of the Ivatans. Now officially our favorite destination in the Phlippines – Batanes! Will definitely book again with BTT! Thanks to our guide Wilbert, our van driver Jack and of course our tour coordinator, Dominic! See you all again soon! http://pinayphotography.blogspot.com/2013/06/breathtaking-batanes.html

My husband and friends always talked about going to Batanes so we were excited to finally push through last April. We were amazed by the beauty of this island as well as the generous nature of the people. Special thanks to our tour guide, Nelson Balanoba and the staff at Batanes Resort for their patience and time and effort to make sure our trip was a wonderful experience. You will definitely be recommended to our friends who have vowed to visit soon after seeing the pictures of our visit. Best of luck! – Io, Bryan, Tina, Rain, Raffy
