What do the tour participants have to say about Ultimate Kapampangan Show-Off 2.0?

” The hot air balloon, the massage, the farm, the food, and the pizza are all wonderful experiences. However, you need to focus more on avoiding long lulls. We stayed too long in the farm it became boring. And to top it, we left two hours too late (based on my understanding was the plan), we missed the migratory bird experience. Because of bad roads, the migratory bird experience is a one-off arrangement. No more going back. Sayang. But the effort and perseverance is noted. The perseverance alone should make future tours with you worthwhile. Just plan better.

” The trip was a good start for me….I don’t mind the early call time and we left quite on time. I think it would have made a big impact if the ride was more comfortable than it was…i guess its also because i’m quite tall and i also encounter the same discomfort when riding planes on economy class……I really enjoyed the balloonfest since my objective was to take pictures…the press passes made all that difference from just going on a trip on my own. As for the food, I think i expected more in terms of variety and “yum” factor……the massage was a lot better than expected…..the ambiance in that small little cabana was a pleasant surprise……”

” I totally enjoyed. Would like to go to another tour in the future.”

” I’m supposed to click on the “Awesome! I would recommend it!” kaya lang baka mawalan ako ng slot next time. “

” It was a PERFECT day tour for me and Kristine since it was our first time in a group tour locally and especially the Hot Air balloon festival. We are already looking forward to the next ULTIMATE destination tour of the group:-) Food is fantastic. Recommendations reached a lot of people already with what we have experienced. Thanks a lot guys and More Power!!! “

” The tour was well planned. “

” The tour was great. Everyone’s warm and friendly especially Anton, the Ivans, Spanky and Rommel who are equally nice, informative and affable. And I love the fact that Aidan was also there.. I think he’s even cuter in person. *wink*”

” really had a blast… i especially liked how some places were surprises. good times!! =)”

” What a great food trip!”

” Our heartfelt thanks to all of you for putting this together. We know it takes A LOT of imagination and dedication to get something like this off the ground, we’re behind you 100% of the way. Count us in your future trips, we keep meeting the most interesting people! Hope this feedback helps with the succeeding tours. “
