The Ups and Downs of Northern Hope Tour's El Nido Tour A and C

No El Nido trip is complete without doing the different tours. Recently, I went to El Nido for the first time and decided to book Tours A & C with Northern Hope Tours. For this review, I've decided to bring back the Ups and Downs. For those who are not familiar with it, it's where I give the good bits an up and the bad bits a down. Also, I decided to combine some places we went at Tour A with some places we went to at Tour C. Anyway, I'm sure you're very excited so without further adieu, lets up some downs:


Helicopter Beach and Seven Commando Beach













The first parts of both Tour A and C is without a doubt the best. Both Helicopter Island and Seven Commando Beach are crystal clear white sand beaches I could spend hours at. Therefore, this gets a giant up. There are some refreshments available at the islands too. Fact: Helicopter Island is named that way because it is shaped like a helicopter.


Matinloc Shrine



For a wonderful view, Matinloc Shrine is the place to be. Unfortunately, you'll need to pay 100 pesos to enter. When we got there, it wasn't that crowded because most tourists aren't keen on paying an entrance free. Was the P100 worth it? Not really. Down!


Secret Lagoon, Small Lagoon and Big Lagoon






Tour A will let you explore 3 lagoons. It was actually my first time in a lagoon and what an experience it was. Be reminded there are parts that get a little rocky so it's better to be in water shoes. By the way, the big lagoon is so huge that I wasn't able to explore the entire thing. If you easily get tired like me, it's highly recommended to explore the lagoons using a kayak. What an adventurous time it was! Up!

Hidden Beach and Secret Beach






One of the most known attractions of El Nido are the Hidden and Secret Beaches. Since they're hidden gems, you'll have no choice but to swim to get there. It's all worth it when you get there though. You're going to be glad you're in the surroundings of Mother Nature's work of arts. Up!


Talisay Beach and Simizu Island







Both tours include yummy island style lunch and we had them at small islands Shimizu Island and Talisay Beach. Despite being places where we just had lunch, they were pretty nice. Believe it or not, they were great places to take lots of pictures too. Up!


The Crew



The Northern Hope Tours team did a very good job in taking care of us. Ryan, the tour guide, was also very entertaining with his spot-on jokes and humorous hugot lines. My favorite was when he said, "I got 3 jokes. Joke joke joke!." The rest of the crew took care of those who didn't know how to swim by dragging their life vests to the boat or to the destination whenever they saw one of us floating in the sea. I highly commend their crew on a job well done so I give them a humongous up.
