2D1N Pahiyas in Lucban and Arañat in Gumaca Festival Tour Package 2016

One of the best, most colorful and creative festival I have seen in the Philippines is the Pahiyas Festival. I will never get tired of joining this every year! I have seen so many faces who never get tired of travelling all the way from the metro just to join the festival of Pahiyas.  This year I was wondering if there is more to see than the usual stuff in Lucban for the 2016 Pahiyas Festival. We would usually take a whole day tour then after hours of endless walking under the sun, eating and taking photos we go home at night super tired. Now, this gave me an idea why not have an overnight tour package for the Pahiyas Festival?

I quickly asked my travel operator friends and contacts, in 10 minutes I found one. I even got to meet him when we did tour around Norzagaray, Bulacan (post coming soon). He is a certified and a local from Quezon province in Gumaca particularly. Who can better organize this trip than someone who was born and lived there? I browsed his itinerary and definitely worth it so I am sharing this to all of you who wanted to go to Pahiyas Festival with an overnight accommodation.

Please see the details below:
