The Philippines is an archipelago of over 7,000 islands in the Western Pacific, of which only 2,000 are inhabited. In fact, the country has so many islands that it would take over 20 years to spend a day on every one!
Given all of its islands, the Philippines is rightly famous for beautiful beaches and an array of watersports. But besides tropical pleasures, the country is steeped in history, as it was a Spanish colony for over three hundred years and then became the first colony of the US from 1898 until the beginning of World War II. Spanish and American influences on the Philippines remain strong, as the population is over 80% Catholic (making it the third-largest Catholic country after Brazil and Mexico),English is prevalently spoken and it has a US-style constitutional government. Today, more than a hundred ethnic groups and a fusion of cultures give the warm and welcoming Filipinos their unique identity.

I am Felix. As a driver/guide, my utmost concern is the safety of my guests, as well as being friendly, polite, courteous and punctual. I’m familiar with Metro Manila and neighboring provinces, and I always value my customers’ time.
One time I had a trip with a tourist from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, that was really fun. I gave him a tour of Manila, and he was flexible and adventurous. He liked sharing his culture, and at the same time he wanted to learn more about the Philippines. The trip was never boring, we learned a lot from each other, and he definitely enjoyed the tour.
Good day! First, let me introduce myself. My name is Faisal, and I’m 31 years’ old and currently work full-time as a driver. I’ve been driving since I came back to the Philippines in 2015. I love traveling with different kinds of people, especially when they feel safe and comfortable in my car. My priority is the safety of my passengers, which is the reason why all of them become my friends after the trip. I made sure to play music they like, and sometimes I offer them something to watch, like a video of the comedian Russell Peters. Most of the time I travel with tourists for hours, so I try to keep them entertained.
