Honestly, could the operators of this so called "Cruise" make any less effort if they tried? Piped music interspersed with a couple of stops at some cement dioramas of historical characters dotted along the otherwise uninteresting river bank and that was about it. Very cheap...More

You get on the one boat they have that's working, they turn on the audio recorded voice over Filipino folk songs, and that is your tour guide throughout the 30 minute cruise. Takes about 10 minutes to one side of the river to see the...More

This is not about the River Cruise, or any other specific activities being offered in the city: it is about the cluster of old structures in what is called "The Heritage". I normally just stay in my room when I travel, most of which are...More

This tour was so bad, my husband and I couldn't stop laughing. Led by a silent, stone-faced guide who let the poorly recorded audio tour do the crackling, err, talking, we were taken down a dirty channel with concrete banks and little to see, save...More

Very beautiful and the my children love it, the city proper it self it's like you are Cadiz, Spain. They preserve the old building and house structure.

Been to Loboc river cruise in Bohol. Very clean river, good food, superb entertainment, great value for money. The mangrove eco-tour in Palawan and that of Bais were both enriching. The Day-asan floating village boat cruise was adventure-filled while the Suyac Island mangrove experience was...More

At first I thought upon seeing that there is such a thing as a river cruise I thought Vigan was surrounded by a river. Then again even if it was obviously the heritage places won’t be within sight of it. Then I thought floating restaurant...More

The Vigan Heritage River Cruise cost of 100 Php each. I thought it was a waste of 45 minutes. Nothing to see in the Mestizo River. A few locals swimming and thats it. No scenic value. There are 5 life-sized tableaus each which a voiceover...More
