Travel Guide: Batanes by Kara Santos

       There’s so much to see in Batanes right? If you want to maximize your time and save costs, your best bet would be to join a hassle-free package tour. I highly recommend BISUMI Tour & Services. BISUMI is a local Travel and Tour Company that specializes in eco-adventure tours around the municipalities of Basco, Ivana, Sabtang, Uyugan, Mahatao & Itbayat). Aside from providing knowledgeable and friendly tour guides and hassle-free transport getting around, they also take pretty good souvenir photos when sightseeing, which is great for solo travelers.
