Instead of bestowing lipservice, tongue-in-cheek acknowledgement to mang rudy e project, and if you could indulge me a degree of mawkishess, i would like to express gratitude to the tour company, Bisumi, and its conscientious staff, our guide, Juliet Dela Fuente, who not only gives exhaustive, well collected details to the journey but also insights, opinions, anecdotes, fond memories and remembrances of thing past for her hometown, the Batanes Group of Islands. She is a true blue ivatan with surprising empathy for foreigners like us. There’s not a faint sign of discrimination or contempt whenever we exhibit behavior that invites consternation among locals.
THANKYOU, BISUMI TOURS & SERVICES for a comprehensive exploration of the islands. Next time, it’s all the way to nowhereland, Itbayat, and its maelstorm-like grip!
Words of my friend Ryan Salvador
Batanes has always been atop my list of dream destinations and when i was finally able to set foot in it, it gave me much more than i imagined. Batanes blew my heart and snatched my heart. Perfect was a word i had never used to describe a journey but that’s exactly what it was. It was perfect. This trip would never be as wonderful as this without you guys so let me thank you one by one. BISUMI Tours and Services specially to Sir Ryan Lara Cardona for arranging my itinerary. To Leslie Lechuga Alavado for the Sabtang Island tour and John for my North and South Batan Tours. Special mention to B and G lodging house owner Madam Joann for a very warm treatment. Grabe iba talaga, aside sa murang homestay napakabait at accommodating talaga ni madam she even gave me a luggage para may mapaglagyan sa 23kgs na dala ko pabalik ng davao and also to the staff Ate Vanessa and Jona for taking care of me during my stay. Salamat talaga guys.

If you plan on going to Batanes, it’s an absolute must that you have to book with Bisumi. Bukod sa affordable packages, they’re very prompt to respond and very accommodating. Their tour guides (Kuya Perry and Kuya Leslie) are never late, very patient with you kapag marami kang poses for pictures, and very helpful for info and small side trips. The owners and staff have their home in Basco itself kaya alagang alaga ka talaga. My wife and I really enjoyed our stay here because of their exceptional level of care. Thank You!

From arrival to departure, they are always there to assist. The arrangement is for the most part convenient, and the pacing for each stop is just right, photo opportunities considered. The souvenir shop is also one of the more convenient places to get souvenirs or borrow bicycles. The tour guides and drivers are friendly and considerate, always giving reminders about time and keeping possessions checked. And they really know their material.
Were grateful that bisumi provide us the best tour in batanes. A friendly and accommodating tour guide, she also captures us amazing photo and a it was enjoyable tour with the group. 3 days tour with same group was great!
