hi i am from ditumabo. just in case po na interested kayo na mag visit sa baler (lalo na rin, just in case, dun sa mother falls) meron akong mga contact na pwede ninyong sakyan. cheaper than 850 per day and can definitely guide you as well. sa mga nagtitipid kasi, mahal pa talaga kapag from baler kukuha ng tricycle.
ngayon, if you're working with a budget we can help you since madami na ring mga balikbayan na bumisita dito na nakaka tipid kahit papano. if interested here's my number 09096783221

Ian | Going Places said...
