*Entrance Fees
*Guide Fees
*Boat Fees
*Transportation (pick up and drop off to Hotel)
*Snorkeling gears

Note: Our south Cebu day 2 tour was not completed due to heavy rain and flood. We didn’t able to do the highlight activities such as Canyoneering, Kawasan Falls and Osmeña Peak. I will not include our South Cebu Tour contact details because we kinda don’t feel satisfied about it. We understand that the weather is unpredictable, but the sad part is we only got P500 each for refund and we believe it’s not fair since Canyoneering is the expensive activity included in the tour cost like P1500. We expect more from them. Well after Day 2 Tour we headed back to Cebu City.

📍 Bus from Sangi Alegria South Cebu ➡️ Cebu South Bus Terminal
📍 UBER Fare: P246 [Cebu South Bus Terminal ➡️ Goldberry Suites and Hotel]

Day 4: Stayed at Goldberry Suites and Hotel (our last day in Cebu)
*Booked 1 night from with genius coupon and cost us P2,081.77 (sulit na sulit!)
*Plus they have free airport transfers. 👍🏻

After the sad experience of our South Cebu Tour, good news came real quick. We originally booked a standard room, but when we arrived at the hotel, they told us that we were upgraded from Standard to Suite Room. Hooray!
