The afternoon session of the third day would be a city tour, roughly costing around Php500. As for the underground river tour, the sisters in-charge of the venue quoted a Php1500 fee inclusive of lunch and transportation. If you are interested kindly send us the number so we can consolidate the number of interested participants who will take the tour as there is a minimum of 10 persons in a van.
