The most convenient way to explore Batanes is by joining organized tour groups which already includes transportation, a set lunch, a tour guide and applicable entrance fees. What we like the most about group tours is the opportunity to meet other travelers. We enjoy sharing travel stories with them, and at the same time, we learn from their travel experiences.

Joining a group tour is not only convenient but efficient as well. Since transportation is already included in the package, visitors can focus on the attractions. and not worry on getting lost, eventually spending time and effort on things that do not matter. You are in Batanes to enjoy after all. If you are only spending three to four days in Batanes, joining a tour group is the best option for you.

Another great thing about guided tours is the local knowledge of a tour guide. Basic information may be available in books or in blogs, but a local tour guide can give more in-depth stories about a certain place. A local guide can share personal stories, local folklore, beliefs and traditions. All of these will make you better appreciate the tour.
