Cheap Cebu Tour Package

I’ve been travelling to the different parts of the Philippines for almost 2 years now and I don’t see any reason why I should stop doing this in the next 5 years or so – not only because I love to travel but because I bring along my wife Lisa and son Sam with me most of the time.

After my tour in Bohol & Panglao over a year ago (my first and only tour package availed), I decided to write about my wonderful experiences and my recommendation on how to avail a cheap tour package. The response has been very great and up to this writing, my “push for something” was still considered as the “biggest bang for the buck” for those who availed the cheap tour. In my own little way, I have helped someone grow his tour business – bought a new van, added more staff, etc – without asking anything in return but gratitude.

In the past several months, I’ve been getting inquiries about affordable tours in Cebu, not only because I live here but I’m one of the go-to-websites when it comes to obtaining information. I always refer them to my friend, Mr. Antonio “Tony” Araneta, who’s been on the business for a long time. When someone asks me about a cheap Cebu tour package, I would always refer them to his travel and tours company because I know he will “deliver”.

About Mr. Tony Araneta

I’ve met Sir Tony 3 years ago when I was still working at Informatics – International Computer School here in Cebu. He was a humble man who has the wit and passion when it comes to travelling. He is a family-oriented religious person who believes that God is so powerful that he made not only the Philippines but the entire world a green place with full of awe-inspiring sights and adventures – and this is the very core of establishing Green Earth Tours & Travel, Inc.

About Green Earth Tours & Travel, Inc.

I always assert that the best way to get a low-cost Cebu tour package is by availing the services of Green Earth Travel and Tours. It is a Cebu-based travel agency providing travel and tour services for both local and foreign guests.

Green Earth Tours & Travel is duly-registered with the Philippine Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) and is accredited by the Department of Tourism (DOT).

The company is composed of competent trustworthy people trained to be responsive to the needs of their clients. This is why I always refer them when someone asks me about budget-friendly tour packages in Cebu & Mactan.

Satisfied Customers are inspirations

Sir Tony’s company has boomed from zero to hero after hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers who availed their low-cost services recommended them to their friends and families.

In a recent talk with Sir Tony over a Capuccino at Starbucks [yummy], I discovered that he’s been getting good feedbacks from his clients. This is one of the many reasons why he love this job so much because he gets to show his customers how beautiful this country is and he gets heart-warming feedbacks from his guests as well.

Take it from me

When planning to go to Cebu for a tour, Sir Tony’s company is highly preferred; take it from me. This trustworthy and friendly person always make sure his guests are satisfied with his company’s services and when they go home, they would tell their friends to avail the same low-priced services at Green Earth.

Avoid danger, Save Time & Sweat

I’ve been to many places in the Philippines and before I go with my family to a certain place, I always search for tour operators/packages and take a look at their itinerary. This is a good reference when it comes to knowing – and going to – the different tourist attractions in those places because they normally place it in sequence in terms of the location and the route the vehicle will travel.

I don’t usually avail the services of tour operators because I want to discover as much information as possible so that I can write it on this blog – street names, jeepney fares, exact locations, do’s & don’ts, tricks, hazards, etc.

Because of my advocacy, I have saved a few hundred bucks but perspire a lot and lost a lot of time compared to availing a hassle-free systematic tour package. I’m also risking my wife, baby and myself to possible street dangers and just hope my karate skills will work when we’re on a dangerous situation [LOL].

Beware of unreliable tour operators

As a web developer and SEO specialist, I have a few tools which can determine if a webpage is reliable or not depending on the traffic it receives and the date it was published. I’ve found out that there are many unreliable tour operators in the country. They post their cheap tour packages all over the net and once they get the deposit from their guests, they evaporate. I warn those who don’t want to lose their money to go to a travel agent who has a permanent address and reliable contact numbers – and an approval from me [wink].

If you want to be sure you get the best and most affordable Cebu tour package, avail the services of Green Earth Travel and Tours. I’m putting my name on the line here because I know you won’t be wrong when you decide to go with Sir Tony’s company.

How to avail a discounted price

I told Sir Tony that anyone who tells him or his staff about me, Mark Anthony Maranga or will have a P50/person discount. If you’re 10 in the group, you save P500 which is enough to feed a family of 4 in a day [right?].

He knows that I’m also passionate when it comes to helping Filipinos and foreigners see the different tourist spots in the country and this is the very reason why I created this blog. I ask people for discounts not for my own benefit but for those who are also fanatical about travelling.

How to see additional sights

Many of the tourist attractions in Cebu are just along the way going to the tourist attractions specified in the itinerary above. Some are not picturesque but worth the short glimpse.

Heritage of Cebu Monument

Enjoy and good luck on your tour!

  19. AL says:

    It is safer to avail legit tours from professional guides like these guys. There are a lot of scammers out there that are our to rip your pockets. look for DOT accredited agencies as well. Happy travels!!

  20. naj says:

  21. via says:

    great! tnx mark..u have a great blog…) this is the one ive been looking 4…

  22. jl says:

    Availed their affordable services early this year and I can say this is one of the best travel and tours company in Cebu. Their tourist guides knows a lot of things and they are very friendly.

  23. Stef M. says:

    This is awesome! I’ll contact them when I go to your place this September.

  24. Jimmy says:

    Thanks Mark! Very wonderful blog and it’s a good thing this guy is religious. My friends are planning to go to Bohol first, then Cebu. I’ll tell them about this.

  25. G. Ong says:

    sir mark, still remember me? your stud in pc repair?

    nice one sir! naa nya ko e refer nila na amerikano. i saw their website, for me, medyo gubot kay daghan kaayo variety ila packages pero i think much better pud ni kay naa daghan options ang client.

    • Gwen,

      Yes, I remember you. Thank you and I hope you also share this page to your FB and Twitter. For some, searching through dozens of packages can be very tedious. But I still think there are a lot out there who wants more options depending on their budget and time here in Cebu.

  26. julz says:

    This company is the most reliable travel and tours company here in Cebu. Every we have an American or Korean guest in our company we always refer it to them and comments were great. In 2008 we tried to avail a couple of much cheaper tour packages/companies, about P100-P200 less, but it’s really not worth it because those people we referred to them give bad feedbacks. Go with Green Earth and your tour will be very worth it…

  27. backpacking101 says:

    Backpacking MAY cost more compared to availing a tour packages in Cebu. There are areas in Cebu where the only option is to ride a taxi (flagdown: P40, every 300 meters: P3.50). The city is not safe and secured compared to, IMO, Dumaguete and Davao.

  28. louella PC says:

    Sir Mark, thanxlot 4 ds informative blog, reali helpful for my family’s trip to Bohol ds August, il get in touch with Green Earth Tours, & yez i must mention ur blessed name… God bless u more, Sir!

  29. Seair says:

    Thanks for this informative post. I, personally like to take tours when I am visiting an unfamiliar place. I feel that aside from being able to see all the popular tourist attractions, listening to the tour guide also gives you some background about your destinations culture and history.

  30. edmund t. says:

    I’ve tried the services of this travel/tours company last year and I can say that their tourist guides are very professional. They may not be the cheapest tours company in Cebu because there are a lot of colorum operators or scammers out there, but with them, you get your money’s worth. Kudos to Sir Tony and his staff!

  31. Mira Torres says:

    Mark, I agree that there are thousands of swindlers out there. After you deposit the money, you can’t contact them anymore. They don’t have an office address and they can’t provide a DOT (Department of Tourism) certificate. Good luck to Sir Tony and his Cheap Cebu Tour Package.

  32. lorenz says:

    I saw this travel and tours company near Ayala land and I think they are more reliable compared to tour operators who only work at home and not DOT approved.
