Ive been traveling around the Philippines for quite a while now and on each travel, I met several types of tour guides. Some are friendly, informative and helpful but some tour guides will just tell you where you are without giving you any background or historical significance of the place. eg. We are now in Rizal Park.. (Ummm I know right? LOL)

A couple of weeks back, I joined a tour of Pasig River and Binondo during the launch of the Philippine Travel Mart 2009.

I met several members of Mabuhay Guides and they were really good. They are so informative and each information were delivered with a smile. Ive been wanting to become a tour guide and share my knowledge about our countries premier destinations but too late, I learned about the Mabuhay Guide training a week after they close the application and screening process.

Just in case you are also a frequent traveler like me, finding cheap international flights is actually easy. Theres a lot of ways to find cheap flights, just subscribe to your favorite airlines’ newsletter or subsribe to google alert using “cheap flights” keyword.

Hopefully they will train new guides that will join their team… I will apply… Hopefully soon:)




  1. Some tour guides are lazy.. some are just not so witty at all.. some does know the place but doesn’t know it’s historical background. But most are really good specially when they come from a bright agency. :]
