Discover the “Pearl of the Orient Seas,” the Philippines

cialis generic recommended

The Philippines, coined the ‘Gems of the East,’ consists of 7,107 islands, and most of them are very small. All of the islands have a lot to offer to tourists, from the typical “sun, sea & beach” holidays to Eco Adventures deep into the diverse geography of these beautiful tropical islands. And don’t forget to meet the people – they are very friendly, and the country welcomes tourists, as they bring money to the country to support local businesses and the economy. From swimming with dolphins in coral waters, to exploring volcanoes and hidden waterfalls, to going out on the town to meet the people (perhaps trying some “tuba” coconut wine) and learn about their rich culture, the Philippines really has it all.

Embark on a full day small group excursion to the town of Pagsanjan, Laguna located two and a half hours south of Manila. Your destination is the Majestic Pagsanjan Falls. Take a scenic boat ride on a native dugout canoe (banca.) As the boat is skillfully maneuvered upstream by two boatmen, the landscape diversifies with beautiful boulders, steep gorges and lush tropical vegetation. Return downstream by “shooting the rapids” as expert boatmen steer past huge boulders in churning waters at top speeds. With its booming waters cascading down the cliff 900 feet below, this is truly an exhilarating, spine-tingling, adrenaline-pumping ride!

Next, hit the beach on our Mactan Island Snorkeling & Picnic Tour from Cebu City. This full day fun in the sun small group tour combines the excitement of riding on a motorized canoe (banca) with snorkeling, swimming or diving in the small islands of the Mactan Channel. Feed fish and soon you will have these colorful creatures feasting from your hands. Enjoy a refreshing swim in reef waters or free diving. A delightful lunch of grilled seafood, chicken or pork with fresh fruits for dessert will be served picnic style on a white sand beach. Whatever you choose to do, your time at Mactan Island is sure to be memorable and fun.

There’s no better way to end your day than enjoying a delicious buffet dinner of Philippine delicacies on board a floating barge on the Loboc River. Our Loboc Riverside Dinner & Night Cruise in Bohol offers a peaceful atmosphere and soft, soothing river breeze to help you unwind. Afterwards, transfer to another barge which will float you upriver towards Busay Falls, with a live band playing music to entertain you. Let the river and the lovely choir performances of the local talents of Loboc serenade you. Drinks are also available on board. You’ll love the cooler temperature of the day, beautiful tropical scenery, and relaxing ambiance.

When it comes to Filipino Hotels, there are some real gems of resorts and world-class business hotels. Friendly people and smiles abound in the Philippines, and a high level of English is spoken on most islands. Our Philippines Hotel Directory features a fantastic selection of popular hotels, exceptionally low rates, and the convenience of being able to book your hotels and tours in one place.

Summer Special Hawaiian Style! Save 10% + Free Shipping at Coffees of Hawaii. Promo Code: COFFEE10 - 468x60

Aloha travel friends! Let me tell you a little secret… There’s no better way to celebrate the May flowers than donning a gorgeous, aromatic Lei in Honolulu. Now is the perfect time to beat the crowds and the rising temperatures with the ultimate tropical escape – that’s right, it could only be Hawaii. Summer is right around the bend, and there are TONS of exciting Eco tours from Honolulu for you to do! Get off the concrete and discover the gorgeous natural beauty of the Islands. You’ll be glad you did, and remember your adventures for years to come. From active volcanoes to hidden waterfalls, pristine beaches to incredible mountain views in the clouds, swimming with sea turtles to zip-lining through the rainforest, Honolulu really is an Eco Paradise.

The Hawaiian Islands, located at center of the Ring of Fire, are formed entirely of volcanoes, one of the most destructive natural forces on earth. Everyone knows how deadly volcanoes can be. But did you know the benefits of them? Many volcanic materials are very beneficial to nature and human life – lava that is continuously forming new landmasses and islands, diamonds and other precious gemstones, generating geothermal energy, volcanic rocks used for making roads, natural glass from lava (pumice), volcanic ash that is rich in nutrients and greatly improves soil fertility, and carbon dioxide and hydrogen released into the earth’s atmosphere that begin the processes of photosynthesis and the water cycle. Volcanoes have a delicate balance with nature – fire & water, death & life, ashes & lush vegitation. Hawaii is one of the greatest mysteries of the universe. See these marvels up-close for yourself on our Eco adventure tours!

My first recommendation has to be our Big Island Grand Circle Island Volcano Adventure from Honolulu. Not only will you see the magnificent ancient Banyan trees, coffee farms, and Orchid and Anthurium Nursery of Hilo, but you will also get to see the beautiful 80 foot tall and almost 100 foot wide Rainbow Falls. Then the highlight of the tour – a visit to the world famous Kilauea Volcano, which has been steadily erupting since the 1980′s. Your tour guide will entertain and educate as you explore the Volcano National Park, the Jaggar Museum, Thurston Lava Tube, Fern Tree Jungle, Kilauea Iki Crater, and more. Don’t forget your camera on this fantastic tour, or you might just cry. And then have to buy another one. Don’t miss this amazing adventure in Hawaii!

My second recommendation is our Mauka to Makai: Zipline, Kayak, Snorkel & Eco Hike with Lunch from Honolulu. See Oahu the way that you have always dreamed of during a thrilling Eco-adventure on the Windward coast of Oahu. Hiking through the rainforest of the Ko’olau Mountains, soaring above the trees of Oahu’s valley, and kayaking through the crystal clear waters of the Pacific are all included in this fun-filled day trip! Your expert ecologist is devoted to showing off the unique life that exists only in Hawaii’s climate. This popular tour sells out well in advance, so reserve early.

On our Ultimate Circle Island Eco Adventure with Lunch from Honolulu, you’ll get to see Hawaii’s wide variety of wildlife with stops at a Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle basking grounds and bird watching at native Hawaiian wetlands. Your professional tour guide will share information about the many different plants, birds, and animals that call Hawaii home. Designed to both entertain and educate, this tour will expose you to Oahu’s raw natural beauty with stops off the beaten path. You will also visit Byodo-In Temple, enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch, see famous lookouts and beaches of Oahu, hike Waimea Valley and enjoy a refreshing waterfall swim!

No matter what you wish to do in Honolulu, Aloha Tours is proud to be your source for sightseeing tours and attractions on the Islands of Hawaii. We offer tours and activities on Oahu, Maui, Kauai, The Big Island, Lanai, Molokai, and Molokini. Indulge in some of the best foods in the world, take in some sun in this tropical climate, and enjoy a never ending array of things to see and do. Call us toll-free for assistance with booking your trip today. Ho’olu komo la kaua – please join us!

Amazing Views in Beautiful Kauai

Friday, December 19th, 2008

Evergreen: Fly Non-Stop To 10 West Coast Cities
Hawaii has lots of beautiful islands to choose from, but if you can only visit one, choose Kauai.  The oldest of the main Hawaiian Islands, the “Garden Isle” has been featured in many movies including the animated film “Lilo & Stitch” and the dinosaur flick “Jurassic Park.”  As you arrive on the island you are sure to be taken aback by the sheer magnificence of it all, and to be certain that you see everything there is to see it is suggested that you take a guided tour.

On one of the many helicopter tours available, you can marvel at the gorgeous scenery from above, which is an opportunity that you do not want to miss.  There is nothing quite like the high you will feel as you soar above the islands and experience them from all angles.  You will have the chance to see Nawiliwili Harbor, Waimea Canyon, and Menehune Fishpond, which is rumored to have been built by leprechauns entirely in one night.  You will also float over Kipu Kai and the Tunnel of Trees, as well as Olokele Canyon and Na Pali.

If you are looking to have your fun on the ground, consider taking an ATV tour and navigating your way through thick vegetation to the Kahili Mountain Range or to the Koloa Plantation, depending on which tour you choose.  With the latter, you may even get to see a spectacular whale show as you travel along the Poipu shoreline.  This typically happens from December through March.  The former features amazing views of a private waterfall which, if you are feeling adventurous, you can go cliff-jumping near later in the day.

Visit Kauai and you will be in for the experience of a lifetime.  Don’t forget to bring extra film for your camera since you will be snapping continuously from beginning to end, and keep an eye on www.kauaitours.net for more exciting options for your Hawaiian vacation.

Enter the Vast Wilderness of Yosemite National Park

Tuesday, October 28th, 2008

Yosemite National Park was one of the first wilderness parks in the United States.  It is best known for its waterfalls and you will find within the park deep valleys, vast meadows, giant archaic sequoias and endless wonderful wilderness. 

Yosemite Tours helps provide sightseeing tours, attractions and transportation to Yosemite National Park.  You can tour the area by van, bus and train.  In addition to activities within the park, Yosemite Tours also offers vacations in San Francisco because it is so close. 

The most popular tour we provide is the Yosemite One-Day Tour by Bus from San Francisco.  You will venture into the ample wilderness in a large, comfy motor coach with giant windows so you can catch all the wonderful scenery around you.  You will pass the Sierra Foothills where the Forty-Niners panned for gold in the 1840s and ‘50s.  When you enter the 716,266 acre National Park, you will be left speechless by some of the world’s most stunning scenery. 

One of the most spectacular things you will see there is El Capitan.  This is a 3,000 foot tall vertical rock formation in the Sierra Nevada mountain range.  You will notice that there will be people climbing it as it is one of rock climber’s favorite challenges. 

Another memorable sight is the double cataract waterfall, Bridal Veil Falls.  It is not only beautiful in the summer when the waters are rushing incredibly fast, but in the winter it is just as appealing.  There is an icefall to the right of the falls that attracts many experienced ice climbers and it is quite a sight! 

Yosemite Falls, another one of the waterfalls in the park, is the highest measured waterfall in North America and one of the world’s tallest measuring at 2,425 feet.  It flows between November and July but it peaks in May so if that is when you are planning on visiting, you are in for a treat!  You can walk to the Lower Yosemite Fall (it actually has three separate falls) or hike to the top if you have time later as it takes a full day. 

When you fall in love with Yosemite National Park, you will definitely come back because there is even more to do and see.  Yosemite has even more waterfalls, trails to hike, horseback riding, rock climbing, fishing, biking, rafting and additional tours of the park.

To reserve your trip to the park, visit www.yosemitetours.us today!
