Find out first-hand by taking part in our Meet the People Tours.
The Meet-the-People tour is a 15-day trip that combines sightseeing on the island of Luzon with an in-depth look at the Filipino fair-trade scene and the inspiring islanders behind it. The tour commences in Manila, with a tour of Intramuros and visits to successful fair-trade organizations. It then proceeds to the Bicol region, where you can have the opportunity to explore Quezon National Park, watch the sun set over Mayon Volcano, cruise a river filled with fireflies and swim in a whale-shark feeding ground. Along the way, get an inside view of island life through visits with fair-trade pineapple farmers, a behind-the-scenes tour of a cassava cooperative, dinner with community leaders and a one-night stay with a local family.
