Our Bohol Tour Guide: Tatsky Cubero

If you are traveling in a big group, I don't recommend that you get your tours from the resort where you are staying. They usually charge on a per head basis so it will turn out more expensive than getting a a local guide. After much research, with consistent good reviews from pinoyexchange.com forum members, I decided to hire the services of Tatsky Cubero. He's very reliable and replies quickly by text message. If you want him to reply by email, I recommend you text him first because he does not reply as quickly through email. Here are his contact numbers:
