Great day in Cebu with Bryan
"Jessie made my arrangements online and Bryan met me at my hotel right on time. He has a normal itinerary, but if you have your own ideas, he’ll certainly oblige. We spent the day seeing local sights, and Bryan was able to educate me on Cebuano culture, this is very handy information if you’re going to be staying a while. Great guy, great tour… so GREAT!"Stephen About local JessieCebu, November 2023
2 day ultimate extreme adventure tour
"We only had two days in Cebu and Jessie organised this amazing 2 day private tour. He's an excellent guide, picked us up at the airport with a really nice luxurious car. He's knowledgeable, calm, very friendly, and a very safe driver. You can't go wrong with these guys, they're real professionals. "GeorgesAbout local JessieCebu, April 2019
"Steph is a highly recommended trip guide for a number of reasons. She knows the ins and outs of places worth visiting in Cebu and understands the culture of the locals, thus proving that her experience, knowledge and understanding of the locality is quite extensive. Her ability to scour for last minute items that we forgot is a testament to her resourcefulness while the chocolates, camera and spray bottle with vinegar (for unplanned marine encounters with jellyfish and the like) have sufficiently given proof of her reliability - we didn't even ask her to bring these things! Lastly, she is a considerate and caring guide - one who answers inquisitive questions patiently, gives her clients ample opportunity to do their own thing but at the same time is available as soon as she's needed. She was very generous of her time that she gladly accepted our tour request with the shortest notice - on a Christmas holiday too! So kudos to you Steph, I wouldn't hesitate to book you as our guide again. The tourism industry needs more dedicated individuals like you; I'd definitely would give the maximum number of stars to your rating for a job well done."Mary AngelicaAbout local Stephanie RoseCebu, January 2019
Day tour of cebu city
"Dear All, the tour with stephanie and the driver (a friend of stephanie) was a very good choice to make. We went to different places in cebu that i would never had found on my own. Stephanie and the driver had a lot of knowledge and where very friendly and flexible to change things on the spot. I would really recommend stephanie as your your tour guide in Cebu. Pick up from the hotel sit back in a nice car and enjoy the views and relax. I am so happy I did this tour and would take stephanie anywhere as my tour guide in the Philippines. sites we saw, Flower garden, temples , old Spanish house, fortress and a very good local lunch."JoukeAbout local Stephanie RoseCebu, January 2019
"We had a really good time with the guys. It was a really local look into Cebu. I would choose them again."JosephineAbout local JessieCebu, March 2018
A great experience, not to be missed!
"We had a fantastic day with Elroy as our guide. The Bojo River is beautiful and the eco-tourism project led by people from a local village is inspiring and very well carried out. After the river cruise we had a table full of delicious snacks for lunch at an organic farm before heading back to Cebu. Elroy is not only a competent guide and a safe and considerate driver but also a very sweet person. We truly enjoyed his company! Thank you so much Elroy, hope to see you again!"LiAbout local ElroyCebu, March 2018
Bohol One Day Trip
"Amazing trip, with a knowledgeable host! Stephanie took care of all of the details of the trip -- Hakuna Matata all along! Besides showing all the great spots on Bohol island, Stephanie was a great companion and shared a ton of knowledge that will come useful for my next trip to the Philippines."AlexAbout local Stephanie RoseCebu, March 2018
Best 2 days you’ll spend in Cebu!
"We did a 2 day tour with Jessie Nilo (Jessie Carl’s brother) and loved every second of it! We had an absolute ball and would 100% recommend doing the tour! We only had 3 days in Cebu and couldn’t be happier that we spent 2 of them with Jessie, showing us around and looking after us every step of the way, we’ll definitely be back!"JessikaAbout local JessieCebu, February 2018
"Jessie is a very nice guy ! My trip to the Philippines was unforgetable and he had a huge contribution on that. I was travelling alone and felt safe the intire trip! I wish him all the best and for sure he has a guide in brazil!!! Thanks Jessie"PaulaAbout local JessieCebu, March 2017
Best guide in Cebu
"Yusef Masjedi · November 26, 2016 Jessie is not only an excellent guide for adventure but a foodie like me as well :) his tours are prefect for adrenaline junkies, but he always made us feel safe. Our quick stay in Cebu was jam packed with the best the island had to offer with a guide I can now truly call a friend! 10/10 would recommend to anyone"YusefAbout local JessieCebu, November 2016

Private & Personalized Tours in Cebu with a Local
When you hit the road and land in a new city like Cebu, there's an exciting way to dive into its soul: personalized local tours. Forget the typical touristy routes – these tours are like having a local friend show you around all the cool spots.
Imagine having someone who lives and breathes Cebu spill its secrets. That's what local guides bring to the table. They know the hidden alleys, the best bites, and stories that never made it to the guidebooks. Whether you're into munching through food tours, wandering the city's streets, or going off the beaten path, a local guide hooks you up with a private tour that's authentically Cebu.
The best part? These tours are all about you. No herding in big groups or rushing through places you're not interested in. With private tours, you're the boss. Whether it's snapping pics at iconic landmarks, diving into history, or checking out the art scene, the tour is tuned to your vibes at your tempo.
But it doesn't stop at city limits. Day trips let you escape the urban jungle and explore nearby wonders. And if you're just setting foot in Cebu, kickstart tours give you a taste of everything. Think of it as a crash course in Cebu awesomeness, guided by a local who knows the city like the back of their hand.
So, next time you're in Cebu, ditch the ordinary. Grab a local tour and unlock the city's real magic – the stories, flavors, and places that make it uniquely Cebu. Get ready to explore like a local!
