Charlie & Lauren

Charlie & Lauren from Wanderers & Warriors are a free spirited couple on the run. Originally from the UK, the duo now call Southeast Asia home. Join these two if you love laughter and have a passion for life and exploring the world.


Cebu: Once a sleepy fishing village and now one of the most densely populated cities, Cebu is the country's oldest city. Known for its spectacular diving, white sandy beaches and lively bars.

Moalboal: The perfect place to post up for some adventure packed travel. Witness schools of sardines gliding gracefully near Pescador Island and take in the beautiful blue lagoon views of the infamous Kawasan Falls.

Puerto Princesa: This coastal city on Palawan Island serves as a basecamp for exploration and is also home to the stunning Puerto Princesa Subterranean River.

El Nido: The ultimate Filipino paradise. With its small town charm and emerging restaurant scene, El Nido is the perfect base for beach chasing and island hopping.

Welcome to the Philippines! We'll stay in the city of Mactan for the night and join the crew for a meet & greet dinner.

Arrival: Festivities start at 6pm. Fly into Mactan–Cebu International Airport (CEB).

Included: Welcome Dinner

We’re off to Moalboal to snorkel with sardines and catch some vitamin-sea. Get excited for some incredibly blue water as you become one with the underwater ecosystem.

Included: Breakfast, Snorkeling Pescador Island

The daddy of all waterfalls! It’s go time as we hit one of the bluest and most iconic waterfalls known to humankind. Make a splash canyoneering and cliff jumping during one of the most adventurous days of the trip. Make sure to pack your swimsuit!

Included: Breakfast & Lunch, Canyoneering Kawasan Falls

Time to catch our flight to Puerto Princesa. Rest & recover before a big day of caves, beaches and paddling.

Get lost (hopefully not!) in the Underground River of Puerto Princesa. Hike through the rainforest to get back to Sabang Beach and paddle-boat through a mangrove.

Included: Breakfast, Underground River Tour

It’s a bit of a trek to El Nido, but we’ve broken up the journey with some must-see places along the way. We’ll spend the night relaxing in El Nido and watching the sunset on Las Cabanas beach.

Included: Breakfast

Get ready for THE most incredible scenery you will ever see, as we take an El Nido island hopping tour around some of the clearest water and softest sand in the world. Swimming highly encouraged! If you didn’t get the memo already, pack swimsuits!

Included: Breakfast & Lunch, El Nido Boat Tour

Today, we’ll partake on the Ferrata Canopy Walk to experience the epic views from the Taraw Cliff. It’s a bit of a climb, but certainly worth the view!

Included: Breakfast, Ferrata Canopy Walk

I know it’s sad but it has to happen. We say our goodbyes, add each other on Facebook and prepare for onward travel.

Included: Breakfast

Departure: Fly out of El Nido airport (ENI) or Puerto Princesa International Airport (PPS)

All of our trips include accommodations, transportation between cities and a number of activities relevant to the theme of the trip you're joining us on! Most of our hotels also include breakfast, but that varies by destination. We'll also bring a trip Ambassador to guide you through your experience as well as include all kinds of recommendations for every leg of your trip. Welcome to a better way to see the world while learning new skills!
Flights are not included. Need airline assistance? Email us at hi@trovatrip.com and we’ll help get you what you need.
Excursions and tours vary trip to trip. Refer to the trip itinerary to see which activities are included. We’ll send recommendations for optional experiences leading up to the trip as well. Prices vary depending on what you get into, but typically range from $50-$150!
Typically breakfast is included, but it varies trip to trip. You can ask your ambassador for tips on where to eat cheap if you’re on a budget!
TrovaPass is a subscription where you earn credits on a monthly basis that can be applied towards trips. It is not currently available to new subscribers.
A down payment of $299 is due at the time of booking. The down payment is refundable until your spot is confirmed at which time it becomes non-refundable. You will receive an email when your spot is confirmed. The remaining balance will be charged 45 days prior to the trip departure. If you book within 45 days from trip start, the full amount will be due at booking, but still refundable until your spot is confirmed.
When you book your trip, your spot will enter a pending status. In most cases, your spot will be confirmed shortly after booking. In cases where there is limited space or if the trip has not yet achieved the minimum number of bookings required for confirmation, your pending status may last longer. While we should know sooner, you’ll be notified at least 60 days prior to trip start whether or not your spot is confirmed. Your down payment is refundable until your spot is confirmed. We recommend not booking a flight until your spot is confirmed.
We cater to young professionals past the stage of roughing it - that means no hostels and no hotels below 3 stars. We strive to create an experience that’s not only authentic, but also easily accessible and comfortable. All hotel locations are conveniently located near the heart of each major destination, so you can live like a local. Less time in transit means more time doing; save the commute for back home.
No more than 20 travelers on each trip. In order to create a personalized experience, we feel it is important to keep group sizes smaller. Sometimes, less is more!
We try to start and end all trips in a major city with an international airport for your convenience. It’s up to you whether or not you want to continue your adventure after the trip end!
We will send a detailed itinerary with everything you need to know at least 7 days prior to your trip start date including hotel information and where to meet up. You can expect each trip to kick off with a Happy Hour for you to meet everyone after settling into your room. Cheers!
You’ll sleep in twin, double or triple shared accommodations with private bathrooms. Traveling with a friend? Just plug in their name while booking under "Roommate Request" or shoot us an email at hi@trovatrip.com and we’ll ensure you’re roomed together. Uncomfortable with sharing a room? Let us know and we'll give you a quote for a single-occupancy bedroom.
Excellent question! We’ll provide a full itinerary including hotel and transportation details at least 7 days prior to your vacation including all necessary travel information. Accommodations often change depending on the group size, so we like to get the exact itinerary out to you when finalized to avoid confusion.
If you’re leaving the country, you’ll need a valid passport that doesn't expire for at least 6 months from the date you depart on your trip. You may also need a Visa. Unfortunately, we cannot provide Visas or guidance on Visas, so please check with your local consulate. You'll probably also want some spending cash (and card), clothes, a bathing suit, toiletries, and anything else you want to show off on vacay! We'll also send you a packing list leading up to your trip.
Each trip is assigned an Ambassador who will lead your group through the full itinerary. You’ll be introduced to your Ambassador prior to your trip. Feel free to reach out with any questions regarding your upcoming trip or link up on social media!
YES! Don’t feel pressured to find someone to join you on a trip. Part of the Trova experience is traveling with complete strangers so you can meet new and wonderful people from around the world. We purposefully match you with like-minded travelers to make the experience easy.
We purposefully keep schedules light so you don’t feel overwhelmed and have time to explore or relax on your own.
Leading up to your trip, we’ll provide recommendations for optional activities you can partake in. Email us at hi@trovatrip.com if you have activity ideas or recommendations.
Have a love for all things travel? We’re always looking for people who love travel as much as we do. Apply here if you’re interested in leading trips as an Ambassador!
