The Philippines tourism industry has been consistently increasing by the year and the number of Travel Agency and Tour Operator has dramatically increased, but a large number of these agencies or operators are not registered and some are just freelancer organizing trips.
Hints to look out for before you book a tour
1. Deceiving Advertising
You call them and they will tell you that the slots for that price is already full, they will then offer higher rates, a good marketing strategy right? or just plain deceiving?
2. Their website or facebook page has very poor reviews or has no reviews at all.
Check out their website and/or facebook page and look for reviews, reviews are important, it reflects on how they service their clients, some have no reviews at all, it's either their not confident of the quality of their services or they removed it because of so many bad reviews. One good example is 888, they were bashed by so many people they removed the review section of their facebook page.
Poor reviews = Poor service
No reviews = Hiding or is not confident of their services.
