Ilocos Tour Complete Itinerary and Expense

 
Recently, I’ve been receiving some questions from my facebook friends about our Ilocos trip. I got questions like, where to go or what to do in Vigan City, Whats in Laoag? How was Pagudpud? Where did you stay and how much did your trip cost you? Questions that are commonly answered by searching the web though it’s better answered by someone you know and trust.
The other day a friend asked me if I was able to keep my Ilocos tour Itinerary and if she could borrow it for their planned holy week and summer vacation. I said yes and also decided to share it to everybody. I haven’t posted an itinerary ever; the reason is because I don’t think I am good in doing one. Also, our travels are quite long – like this trip which was a 6 nights-7 day’s trip.


Anyhow, I am sharing this week long Ilocos tour – a mixture of guided and DIY tour. You can break it down by city if you wish since the per-city tour only took a day which you can (technically speaking) finish the entire trip within 3 days and 2 nights. Remaining days of our trip was spent for relaxation which is one of our top most goals why we travel.

TOTAL Expense per pax 8,195.00

 
Php 8,195.00 though it may sounds great for 7 days-6 night’s tour which includes airfares, tour fees and foods; this expense doesn’t include personal expenses like the souvenirs, extra foods and tips. For cheaper options, I would suggest that you go in a large group. Travelling in a smaller group could still be cheaper and less expensive if you are going to do a DIY itinerary that usually requires a lot more time because some destinations are quite far from each other. Commuting will take quite of your time, which you might end up missing some spots that you want to visit.
Hope that this detailed itinerary helps you lighten your planningJ.

  2. hello there! Is it possible to have a Vigan-Pagudpod Tour for 1 day? I mean lahat ng nakalist on Day 3 and Day 5 all in 1 day, kahit lesser time nalang on each place, we will be coming from pagudpod so yung van's route is Pagudpod-Vigan-Pagudpod. If yes, can you help me figure out the itinerary for that day? Thanks for your help!

    1. Hindi ko iniencourage and 1 day kasi kunting delay lang masisira na yung buong itinerary sa sobrang gipit sa oras, pero ito yung posibility...

      Start the tour in pagudpud at 6am - 10:30 (mga nasa 15 minutes per destination lang stop nyan. Start from North Pagudpud then south - Expert dapat si tour guide about routing :)

      Then Pagudpud to Vigan 11:00AM - 3:00PM (super smooth dapat ang travel para maachieve to - sa van nalang din yung lunch para hindi sayang ang oras kasi you might be tempted to shop sa Heritage Village so advantage if you could maximize the time)

      Vigan tour: (3:30PM - 6:00PM)

  4. Hello po! We're from Pampanga. Balak naming magdrive papuntang Ilocos this month. 13 kami lahat. We're planning na wag nang kumuha ng tour guide para makatipid. Nagreresearch na lang ako para malaman ano magandang puntahan. We'll we be able to enjoy kahit walang tour guide? Also, dun sa comment mo na 20 php entrance fee sa Maira Ira Cove - Blue Lagoon, mapupuntahan na lahat ng lugar na nakaenumerate with just 20 php? Like ung:

    1. Hello  andami nyo, I bet masayang joyride yan! Kung iniisip mo kung mag eenjoy kayo, masasabi ko is depende, kasi kung close kayo at pareparehas kayo ng trip mag eenjoy talaga kayo with or without a tour guide. Kung tinutukoy mo naman is kung maeenjoy nyo kaya yung destination. I would also have to say na dedpende sa trip nyo kasi kami medyo bet naming yung informative na trip. Mahirap kasing mag appreciate ng mga bagay bagay kung hindi mo alam kung ano yung mga what abouts nito bakit sya dinadayo gaya ng Sta Monica Church. Pero may mga spots naman na hindi kailangan ng tour guide meron din iba na may sarili silang guide gaya ng Juan Luna Shrine.

      Yung sa Blue Lagoon naman yung spots sa loob nito is yung dos hermanos lang. The rest madadaanan nyo on your way bago pa mag blue lagoon – pero nothing to worry kasi halos lahat naman walang entrance fee (yung kapurpurawan may fee din ata 20 sa naalala ko). Hope that will help :) happy trip!

    2. Yes it is cheaper but that is if you travel with a group of at least 10. What I like about this tour by Christeen is they were able to get a low fare airfares and also they spread out the tour in 7 days which makes it less hectic than the usual 3D/2N trip. However using van for traveling is more comfortable especially going in between towns. And of course, it is cheaper with a group of 10 or more. Riding a trike is a great alternative nevertheless.

    3. Welcome dear! Now that Vigan won in the New7Wonder Cities of the World, many more people will flock to Ilocos.

      For sure tour prices will get higher.

  7. Hi, We are a group of 4 foreigners students from Manila planning for a 3-day tour Vigan-Laoag-Pagudpud. We plan to take the Sleeper bus from Manila to Vigan/Laoag roundtrip. We plan to leave Manila on friday evening and be back by Tuesday morning ( for our classes...hehe). It would be great if you suggest an itinerary for us. We are a bit budget conscious (of course...being students) but we were also discussing whether it would be better for us to rent a van in Vigan/Laoag/Pagudpud for the 3days tour or have a DIY trip on tricycles and Jeepneys.

    1. Hi there!

      If I were you, I will definitely choose to rent a van on that way I can exhaust my time. It would be the best way to visit as much places (tourist spots) as you want without exerting too much effort  that might drain your energy for Tuesday class =). This way you might be able to also spare yourself from unexpected expenses.

      The first one is less effort and less tiring which might also have fewer adventures, if you consider it quite boring. You might consider taking a semi DIY tour, suggestively  Manila-Pagudpud-Laoag-Vigan-Manila

      Friday Night: Sleeperes buss - Manila Pagudpud (around12-13 hours). Click here for schedule and contact number of bus company.

      Saturday:  Pagudpud rent a tricycle or van for another tour.

      Sunday: Pagudpud - Laoag (2.5 hours by bus). Laoag can also be toured using a tricycle but you “might” miss some other destination.

      Monday “EARLY” morning: Laoag-Vigan (2.5 hours by bus).  In Vigan you can rent a tricycle (around Php400-500) or Carriage (around 800).

      Vigan-Manila via regular buses, safest travel time allotment is 8-10 hours.

If the flight from Manila arrives and leaves Laoag as scheduled, we will actually have 2 half days (Thursday and Sunday) and 2 full days. We'd appreciate suggestions on places to visit given our schedule. Kindly note that our interest are historical sites and old churches and similar architectural places.

    Maraming salamat sa pag share mo ng Ilocos itinerary mo.

    Laking tulong nung mga infos sa trip namin ng family ko next year.

    May query lang ako, upon arrival nyo sa Laoag airport, included na ba yung transfers from the airport to Laoag Homestay?

    Worried lang ako kasi may makaka sama ako na elderly and medyo late na din arrival ng flight.

    Thanks much in advance for your response. =)

    1. Hi, your welcome po :) its always my pleasure to help other travelers.

      Re. arrival in Laoag airport, Kuya Glenn - our tourguide was kind enough to include it dun sa homestay namin. I am not sure though if same goes with the others but you can always check with them before closing deals :)

    1. Yup, I believe you can stay there, check mo lang if me vacant since marami din nagpapatour sa kanya. then for the tourist spots, I've noticed that most of them are far from each other which may take time if your not in a guided tour.

    1. hmmmm I haven't checked if they do pick-up from Laguna :| but you may contact them directly. I can only suggest for kuya glenn since sya lang yung na try naming. But I've heard a lot na same na rin yung service :) I cant guide you to specific nga lang.

    1. hell :) It would be hard not to have a tour guide because spots are far from each other. There are tricycles thought that you can hire.

    1. Hi. Kung gusto niyo ng mas magandang view and mas maraming activity na pwedeng magawa, I would suggest you to stay at Blue Lagoon where Hannah's is located. But if you want cheaper room accommodation, stay in Saud

  58. Hi. My family and I are headed to Vigan on March 23. I've already booked a hotel for 4D3N in Vigan because initially I just thought of just exploring Vigan. However, now I am thinking of going to Pagudpud and Laoag also. Can you suggest an itinerary for us considering the restraint we have (hotel accommodation is in Vigan)? We plan to leave Manila at 4am on Mar 23 and we'll be bringing our car. Thanks :)
