Shooting The Rapids of Pagsanjan Falls Tour

10 (ten) Hours Duration


Pagsanjan Falls, located in Laguna, Philippines, is a beautiful natural wonder that can be explored through a thrilling canoe ride. You will certainly enjoy the towering cliffs and lush greeneries. This torrential waterfall is reached by a river trip on a dugout canoe called “Banca”, known locally as “Shooting the Rapids”, originating from the municipality of Cavinti.

Pagsanjan Falls is a famous waterfall located in the town of Pagsanjan, Laguna Province in the Philippines. It is also known as Magdapio Falls and is considered one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the country.

To reach Pagsanjan Falls, visitors usually take a boat ride up the Pagsanjan River. The boat ride is an exciting and scenic adventure, as it takes you through narrow gorges and rapids, with stunning views of the lush forest and towering rock formations along the way. Along the river, visitors can also see small villages and farms and may encounter locals fishing or swimming.

Upon reaching the falls, visitors can admire the majestic waterfall, which drops about 120 meters from a height of about 300 feet. The waterfall is surrounded by lush vegetation and rock formations, and visitors can swim or take a bamboo raft ride to get closer to the falls.

Aside from the boat ride and the falls themselves, there are also other activities that visitors can enjoy in Pagsanjan, such as hiking and zip-lining. The area also has a variety of restaurants and shops where you can buy souvenirs and sample local delicacies.

Overall, a visit to Pagsanjan Falls is a must for nature lovers and adventure seekers who want to experience the beauty and thrill of the Philippines’ natural wonders. Just be prepared for a bit of physical exertion, as the boat ride and the trek to the falls can be challenging for some.

Flexible, efficient and super service Planning independent travel in the Philippines is not easy as most of the tourism there is focused to prescribed packages which lack flexibility and imagination. This usually means that other operators offer very similar packages and timings, ensuring you will be visiting crowded sights. I tried a large number of companies and independent guides without success. Arnold was the only one who was willing to help and customise his services according to my goals. Arnold also answered mis questions and helped me with some of the preparations/logistics – something that nobody else who I contacted did. For that, I am extremely grateful and pleased with his company services. Moreover, Arnold turned to be a gentleman who was a pleasure to be with and we ended up hanging out together and having fun in the last day of my trip. I recommend his services.
Great car service I hired a driver for the day and they were reasonably priced, responsive to questions and timely pickup. Overall great service, highly recommend!

Super Wir haben "nur" die Tour mit zwei Tagen und einer Übernachtung gemacht. Diese war wirklich super. Eine gewisse Grundkondition und gutes Schuhwerk sind aber auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert.

Highly recommend this company for a driver I had pre-booked a driver to collect my elderly father from the airport in Manila. The communication via email during the booking process was awesome, and then it was above exceptional on the day the driver collected my father from the airport. There was an extensive delay at the airport due to some confusion from dad, and the driver waited patiently for him, while communicating with me via WhatsApp. The driver then collected my father even though he was very delayed and let me know he had found him and was taking him to his hotel. The service was above and beyond my expectations and was great value as well!! Beyond happy!! 5 stars for service and beyond!
Very good experience! Arnold is the best driver/guide. He pick us up from thet hotel and took us to Pangsjan falls and back, available to our schedule, answered all our questions and was very kind. We recommend you taking him as your driver! good price also, for all day. Israeli people, Arnold is your driver!

Superior tourist transfer service My partner and I used Tourist Driver Manila's transfer service from Manila to Pagsanjan, Laguna.[+] Excellent service from Arnold; very easy to communicate[+] Clean, spacious Toyota Innova[+] Efficient driving and navigationWould definitely consider hiring TDM again for day trips or excursions.
Excellent Half-Day Tour Arnold was prompt – the vehicle clean comfortable and well maintained.Our original plan was to tour about and view the Taal volcano – however due to the ongoing eruptions and road closures we were forced to change our itinerary to the Saro Jeepney Factory, followed by a visit to the nearby Bamboo Organ ending our morning with a wee bit of shopping.Arnold was courteous, informative and an excellent safe & efficient driver. Although a bit on the expensive side compared to taking a less personalized service or something like Grab for the half day, Arnold and his vehicle suited our purposes and we would most definitely use ‘Tourist Driver’ again.Cheers Arnold
Goede en betrouwbare organisatie Arnold Van TDM heeft met ons een 4 daagse rondreis gedaan van Baguio, Sagada, Banaue en Batad. Alles was perfect geregeld en Arnold paste zich altijd aan aan onze wensen en liet ons nog meer zien dan in het programma was opgenomen als daar tijd voor was. Email communicatie met zijn dochter Decibel liep ook snel en prima. We kunnen deze organisatie van harte aanbevelen.
