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.

Included: Breakfast, Flight to Puerto Princesa

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, some meals and a number of activities relevant to the theme of your trip! Most of our hotels also include breakfast, but that varies by destination. A local guide who speaks the language will also be assigned to your trip and ready to provide recommendations every step of the way. Welcome to a better way to follow your passion while seeing the world!
International flights to and from the tripp destination are not included. Looking for cheap flights? Check out kiwi.com!
Excursions and tours vary trip to trip and are based on the theme of the trip. Refer to the trip itinerary to see which activities are included in your trip!
Typically, at least 2 dinners and breakfast every day is included, but it varies trip to trip. You can ask your local guide for tips on where to eat cheap if you’re on a budget! Dietary & allergy information will also be collected leading up to the trip to ensure you’re taken care of.
TrovaPass is a subscription service where you can earn credits on a monthly basis that can be applied towards trips. It is not currently available to new subscribers.
A 25% down payment 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 60 days prior to the trip departure. If you book within 60 days from trip start, the full amount will be due at booking, but still refundable until your spot is confirmed. See all of our Terms & Conditions.
When you book your trip, your spot will enter a pending status. In most cases, your spot will be confirmed about 48 hours after booking. In cases where the trip has not yet achieved the minimum number of bookings required for confirmation, your pending status may last longer. While we typically notify much 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 adults 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 ends!
We will send a detailed itinerary with everything you need to know at least 2 weeks prior to your trip start date including hotel information and airport transfer information (if included). Before your trip, you’ll be invited to both a Facebook and WhatsApp group to meet the other travelers and start exchanging information. You can expect each trip to kick off with a welcome dinner for you to meet everyone after settling into your room. Bon Appétit!
Unless listed otherwise, you’ll sleep in twin or double shared accommodations with private bathrooms. Traveling with a friend? Just plug in their name while booking under "Special Requests" or shoot us an email at hi@trovatrip.com and we’ll ensure you’re roomed together. Uncomfortable with sharing a room? No problem! Most of our trips offer a single supplement option that you can choose when booking.
Excellent question! We’ll provide a full itinerary including hotel and transportation details at least 2 weeks prior to your trip 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 your return date. You may also need a Visa. Unfortunately, we cannot provide Visas or guidance on Visas, so please check with your local consulate. We'll send you a packing list leading up to your trip to help you prep what's needed! If you have specific questions about what to pack, email us at hi@trovatrip.com.
Trips are hosted by topic experts and led by local guides. Most trips also include a Trip Manager to help coordinate. You’ll be introduced to all staff 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 TrovaTrip experience is meeting and traveling with new and exciting people from around the world.
Downtime will vary trip to trip according to the itinerary. We do our best not to jam-pack itineraries so that you have some time to explore or relax on your own!
Have a love for all things travel and want to show others the world? 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 Trip Manager!
