The tour is done at night as the glow of the fireflies emit can better be seen during this time.

A tour coordinator will pick you up from your hotel at around 6 p.m. Be sure to be in your lobby 15 minutes before your pickup schedule. Your hotel's reception will be informed of your exact pickup time on the day of your tour.

Once all the remaining guests in your tour group have been picked up,
you'll proceed to the jump-off point for the cruise. The travel time is about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the traffic condition. Your tour coordinator will assist you in registering for the cruise. If boats are readily available to accommodate your tour group, you will then proceed to having your cruise on the river; this lasts about an hour.

The boatman who will paddle for you during the length of the cruise are village locals and will also serve as your tour guide. He will provide you information about the fireflies and will bring you to their resting place, so you can marvel at them.

Once the cruise is over, your dinner will be waiting for you in a local
restaurant. They serve sumptuous Filipino meals that you will enjoy. After everyone is done with their meals, you will then head back to your hotel for drop-off around 10 p.m.
