Hi, I am Fredda and I am a Tour Guide

I feel blessed and lucky to be living in the midst of tropical beauty! You may not believe it if all you’ve ever seen of my country is the polluted and crowded city… that’s why I invite you to see more of the nature spots of my country.

I love hiking and trekking and I can take you to some excellent day hikes, overnight camping trips or even multi-day excursions. If you want to hike, climb and walk on wonderful boulders, rivers, caves, springs, mountains, lagoons and waterfalls outside Manila, especially in off the beaten path places, please drop me a line. 

I am familiar with some amazing nature spots in Rizal, Laguna, Cavite, Quezon or Bulacan which are ideal for day trips from Manila. I will tell you my daily rate in email as well as a link to my social media sites and websites so you can see my pictures. Also available for multi-day tours all over the Philippines!

People say I am friendly, warm and accommodating. I am an experienced traveller and have roamed around off-the-beaten paths in the country. I am quite flexible and can bring you on intense major hikes or on easy nature strolls.

My daily rate for the service is USD100 or PhP5000. This includes:

  •         payment for mandatory guides
  •         registration fees in the places we visit
  •         I will also pay for my own food and transpo during the trip  
  •         hiring an addl guide that are available in the natl parks or hiking areas/village to ensure our safety while hiking

For day trips near Manila, we leave the city on or before 7am and are back by night time; for closer areas we can leave at 9am. Travel time can be anywhere from 1.5 to 3 hours one way. Typical transportation expense for a day trip in outside Manila is around P300-P400. I can also provide a car for the trip.

I am also open to longer trips in the outer islands, overnight camping, etc. My trips are customized depending on my client’s preferences and level of fitness. My tours are one on one, but my client is free to bring one other person. For a weeklong trip I give very good discounts.

I have been fortunate enough to have hiked in over 18 countries, most with professional guides. As a guide Fredda is right at the top. She is extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. I know of no other person so familiar with all aspects of the Philippines, from its geography, both human and physical; to its politics, culture and cuisine. A very challenging and stimulating experience, to be guided via Fredda, both physically and intellectually. If you appreciate an extremely intelligent , well read tour guide, who will surprise you with insight, value and humor, you better book FREDDA!- Robert Deline

If anybody knows where to go what to do she does she knows who to contact for travel Arrangements how long it usually takes and what it costs to get there just an overall nice person and very informative- Kim Thiebault

Over the past three years, Ms. Rosette has been my guide on several trips throughout Luzon, and Cebu. She has organized our trips with competence and professionalism, catering to my interests and expanding them. She is very knowledgeable about the places we visited, and where there is a gap in her knowledge, she can quickly and thoroughly research the issue. I recommend her highly.- John Tyrrell

Fredda is amazing. My friend and I had a 16 hour layover in Manila and she gladly met us early that morning and showed us around Manila for the day…. well about 7 hours to be exact. She was knowledgeable, friendly, easy to get in touch with and a lot of fun! Prior to landing in Manila she made sure we knew where to meet her and she made sure we got back to the airport with enough time to grab our bags and catch our flight. We can’t wait to go back and have her take us on another adventure!- Sydel Smith

Fredda is an excellent guide. She is knowledgeable, reliable, friendly, and very professional. She knows her country well and gave me great insight into the history and culture of the Philippines. I’m a keen hiker, so having someone like Fredda was a big help in a country that I am unfamiliar with. There are many hikes within a few hours drive of Manila and both times I went with Fredda were unforgettable. She also ensured that the guides we had with us were vigilant and professional too — a high quality experience overall!- Kevin McQueen

Great guide! I have travelled with Fredda on numerous occasion, mostly on quick getaway trips outside Manila. She has extensive knowledge on where to go to and things to do and eat on those trips we had. Looking forward to the next boring weekend for another awesome adventure.- Charlie Pacelo Garcia

Fredda gave me suggestions as to where my clients would fully enjoy meaningful and memorable travel experiences. Her passion to explore the world has given me courage and inspiration to travel, and her clear insights and unbiased reviews about the places she has been to help not only her clients but also others like me who aspire to see the world.- レガスピ エクス
