Tours,tours, tours!

We thought it would never happen, but tour operators finally saw the light and are now offering tour packages in every conceivable form to suit any budget, with the lowest at Php 325 per person for a day tour of either Bolinao or Mabini. Most of the tours are concentrated on the western part of Pangasinan, which is primarily beach country. Alaminos' Hundred Islands National Park is standard fare, but should you hanker for something above the ordinary, try an overnight package with snorkeling or kayaking thrown in. If you're the Masskara or Panagbenga type of tourist, Pangasinan summer is fraught with festivals both religious and cultural starting with the Feast of the Senora de Manaoag in April and ending with Pista'y Dayat and Dagupan's Bangus Festival in May. Here's a complete list of what these tour operators have to offer and then some. To ensure a memorable vacation, we advise you to make thorough inquiries on exact costs and inclusions. Happy touring!
