There is no hesitation to say Junji and his wife are top notch travel agents with the passion and knowledge for their business. They truly care about their clients experience and were always available with any questions we had. We had the great pleasure of meeting them while on our vacation. We would highly recommend them.

We LOVED our itinerary, which was perfectly planned with enough excursions and downtime, which we appreciated. Our 18-day trip (with 9 travelers) was no small feat to plan, and Junji had everything planned out perfectly -- from all the transportation to all the accommodations we stayed at. We had told him that we wanted this to be a 'Trip of a Lifetime' for us, and it was! We visited Manila (stayed at the Discovery Primea, which was perfect for our family -- the pool was a big hit for the children), then traveled to my father's hometown in Infanta (Quezon province) and then back to Manila (with a stop for the afternoon at the Taal Lake on our way to Manila -- our driver JP Cruz was just wonderful and so kind to our family!). Then we traveled to Panglao to stay at the South Palms Resort, where Junji made arrangements with Fronie Remoreras and his daughter to spend a day on Pamilican Island (dolphin watching, snorkeling, exploring and having lunch) and another day to swim with the Whale Sharks and visit the Tumalog Waterfalls. They were very professional and attentive! Our transportation from Panglao Island to El Nido was perfectly arranged with a van to an ocean jet to a van to the airport, then a van from the El Nido airport to a boat ride to our hotel (El Nido Pangulasian Island). This was by far our favorite hotel of the whole stay! We loved it! We took advantage of the inclusive tours that the resort offered and enjoyed our stay at the Kalaw Villas. Then our trip to Boracay to stay at the Lind Hotel was also planned well. We were notified of a change in the flight departure time in advance, so we were prepared to leave earlier than originally planned. We also loved the Lind Hotel - such a 'different vibe' as Junji described. The beach and warm water were unbelievable as were the sunset views from our hotel. We also did a snorkeling and cliff jumping excursion while there and visited the main tourist area. Then our trip ended with another stay at the Discovery Primea Hotel in Makati, which was perfect! Everything was really well done, and we would highly recommend for any traveler to work with Junji in planning the perfect itinerary to suit any needs. Thank you for all you did to make our trip so memorable, Junji! We are forever grateful!
Best parts:
We loved how seamless everything was! We were able to truly relax and enjoy knowing all of our transportation and hotel needs were taken care of. We really appreciated that our agent, Junji Arias, was in constant contact with us and our hotels to check in with us and give us any updates on our flight information. Even when we had to make a change to a different hotel in Manila, Junji could not have been more accommodating and responsive. The customer service he provided was exceptional!
Worst parts:
Even when we had a change to our flight leaving Boracay to return to Manila, Junji stayed in contact with us and was able to resolve any flight issues we had. We were grateful for his attentiveness!

The surprise welcome gift to the chocolate mango dessert was very nice. I had an awesome trip and Junji was so nice to give us different hotel environments that was accommodating. Our stay in Mahogony resort was clean, close to the El Nido town & low key. Junji planned the tour C island hopping tour that was such a nice surprise and relaxing. Our trip to Borocay at the Lind Hotel was the bed hotel I've seen yet. What a great location! Besides Junji organizing my own trip, he also helped me book my whole family's reservation last minute. I can't thank you enough

I praise Junji and his team for showing us some of the best islands and resorts in the places we visited. It was a very well balanced itinerary.

The trip started without a hitch. All of the activities that were planned went off perfectly with no snags (impressive!). I cant imagine traveling to a new place without using your service again.
Best parts:
Everything! Junji was amazing throughout the whole experience! It just happened that he was there at the same time at the same hotel. It was a huge vote of confidence that he was staying at the same place. I was able to meet him and form a personal connection with the person who created my beautiful trip.
Worst parts:
There is nothing more that I could have asked for.
