Frequently Asked Questions - Pacific Island Tours
Answers to Common Questions - Q&A
1) What is a Romance Tour?
A Romance Tour is a vacation to the Philippines to learn about Philippine culture and a way for single foreign men to be introduced to single Filipino women looking for true love. The process starts when single foreign men and Filipino women discover our service and join freely in hopes of personally meeting each other and start a loving relationship. A Romance Tour is different than meeting someone through a dating site or chat room, where you don't get to meet them personally. A Romance Tour provides a secure and safe way to meet beautiful Philippine Women while on vacation to the tropical paradise of the Philippines.
With our Romance Tour, we take care of all the details for you. Our service starts by offering you cheap airfare to the Philippines and discounts on Philippine hotel stays. This is to make sure you get here safely and settled all comfortably within your budget.
You will then be assigned a personal Tour Guide that will assist you during your entire stay in the Philippines. A complete schedule will include unlimited introductions and plenty of time for you to enjoy your vacation in the Philippines. Your Tour Guide will conduct the introductions and show you the local area tourist attractions while you are here. We do everything for you so that you feel completely relaxed during your entire stay.
With our Romance Tour you will be well taken care of and you will find that it is really the best way for you to meet a large selection of Filipino Women that are looking for true love just like you. This is not the same as making friends or acquaintances on dating sites or in chat rooms. A personal introduction is by far the best way to meet the very best Philippine Women. Back to Top ^
2) Why would I need to take a Romance Tour? Can't I just do it on my own?
You're probably thinking, why should I need to take a Romance Tour when I could easily do this on my own? Yes, you could try do this on your own. You could book your flight to the Philippines, get checked into a hotel, and your in there, right?. You'd think the women would be falling over you as soon as you stepped off the plane, right? Dead Wrong! Filipino women are not like that.
We hear countless sob stories of how men have come to the Philippines on their own in hopes of finding a decent Filipino woman of their dreams only to be disappointed. They felt their trip was a waste of time. They found that Filipino women didn't come running to them like they had hoped. Instead, they found Filipino women, especially the really good ones, seemed to play hard to get and weren't so approachable. Some even ran the other way! They never got a chance to meet the good ones. They spent most their time alone searching and coming up empty handed. We know it's not because these men weren't handsome and charming. No way! The problem was they didn't take a Romance Tour to ensure their success in meeting the really good Filipino women and meet them properly. When these men get home they tell us they should of taken one of our Romance Tours instead. We really can't blame them.
You see, the culture in the Philippines is that Filipino women like to be introduced to men with a proper introduction. They prefer to be wooed and swept off their feet. This is a romantic country and they like to be introduced to men in a fairy tale sort of way, like a knight in shining armor. Walking up to a beautiful Filipino woman out of the blue without a proper introduction does not work well in the Philippines. The women most likely would be too shy to acknowledge what is happening. They would look away or might run! You just intruded their personal space and did not respect them by not knowing how to properly meet a woman. Embarrassing!
By taking a Romance Tour, we ensure your success. You will be able to meet many Filipino women that are wanting to meet you. Plus, we can save you money on your airfare and hotel stay. Your trip will not be a waste of time. You will be on vacation and be introduced to many decent Filipino women that meet your criteria. You wouldn't be going home frustrated and wondering if you should of done something different. Over 90% of the men that take our Romance Tour are introduced to someone they feel totally compatible with and start a long term relationship. You can do it right by taking a Romance Tour. Back to Top ^
3) How does your Romance Tour work?
Our Romance Tour is quite simple. After you sign-up to take a Romance Tour with us, we help you get to the Philippines with discounted airfare and work on booking your hotel that is part of the package (you can upgrade too). When you arrive, we would meet you at the airport and take you to your hotel. You will be assigned a personal tour guide that will introduce you to the local culture and things to see and do. You would also be introduced to nice Filipino women that you would like to meet and have selected from our extensive database. Our tour guide would arrange all the personal introductions and answer any questions you may have about our other services. The introductions would take place in a safe public setting and would be conducted in a professional manner by your Tour Guide. This ensures you meet many Filipino women and in the proper way. Back to Top ^
4) Would I be competing with many other men on your Romance Tour?
You will not be competing with any other men while on your Romance Tour. We do not do large social gatherings where men come to the Philippines in large groups only to meet a few Filipino women. We are different in that we provide one-on-one introductions to meet beautiful, single Filipino ladies, all organized by your professional Tour Guide. We only take a limited number of men each month, so you will never be distracted by other introductions that may be going on at the same time. Back to Top ^
5) Can you work around my schedule? What if I can only stay for a few days? What if I want to stay a month?
We can customize your Romance Tour to fit your needs. Just tell us your requirements and we will make all the arrangements. If you can only stay a few days, it's okay, we can work with you, but we strongly suggest you take at least the 14-Day Romance Tour as this will give you ample time to meet many Filipino women and have time left over to get to know each of the women you like. Plus, you may want to do something else besides hanging out in your hotel room. We can take you (and your special someone) to some of the Philippines hottest tourist attractions. Or if you end up to where you want to stay longer, we have full visa services that can help get your Philippine visa extended, so no worries! Back to Top ^
6) Is airfare included in your Romance Tour package?
Our Romance Tour package is already extremely low priced considering what you get as far as services coupled with our personal introductions. So No, the airfare is not included, but we are directly connected to all the major airlines and can get you cheap flights to the Philippines. Just check where you are in flying from to get the best rates. Back to Top ^
7) What type of women join your service?
The women that join our service are sincere, beautiful, respectful, caring, and loving Filipino women. Most of them come from very good families and have some degree of education. They join our service in hopes to find a foreign man that will treat them with love and respect. These are not bar girls, has-beens, gold diggers, or anything like that. These are decent girls with decent intentions that have joined our service in hopes of meeting a sincere, decent foreign man for friendship and true love. Back to Top ^
8) Are Philippine women generally materialistic?
Most Filipino women come from humble backgrounds and are satisfied the simple things in life like good family and friends. They are down to earth and are interested in eventually having their own long term relationship filled with love and happiness. They are truly grateful for what they have in life and are very appreciative with even with the smallest token of love. Big ticket items are not necessary in winning the heart of these beautiful Filipino women. Back to Top ^
9) Do some of the women in your service have children?
Most of the Filipino women that join our service are single and have never had children. However, there are some ladies that are single moms and are shown as having children in their member profile. We can introduce you to women who meet your criteria, whether with our without children, all you have to do is make your selections of Filipinas from our large database. Back to Top ^
10) I do not want children so how do Filipino women feel about that?
Most of the Filipino women that join our service are single and never been married and never had children. The Filipina dream is to someday get married and start a family of their own which means having children. There are some that do not want or cannot have children. Our profile system reflects which women want children and which do not. All you have to do is let us know of your preferences and we will only introduce you to Filipino women that meet your criteria. Back to Top ^
11) What are my chances of meeting the right girl, really?
We ensure your success by letting you choose the Filipino women you want to meet from our membership. Over 90% of the men who take our Romance Tour are introduced to someone they like and start to develop a relationship with. The couples quickly fall in love and from there they plan their future together. We don't promise marriage, but most of the couples end up getting married and live happily together. We let the two of you decide how far to take your relationship. Back to Top ^
12) Why would a beautiful young Filipino woman be interested in me?
Philippine women feel foreign men are stable, grounded and have sincere hearts. They see them as responsible and caring to their partners. They like financial and mental stability and see that in a foreign man. It's believed Filipino women find foreign men more attractive than their Filipino counterparts. They prefer older men and don't feel that the age gap matters. They look to older men as more mature, affectionate and understanding. The truth is, as long as you are good to her, love and respect her, she will love you forever! Make sure you do that for her. Back to Top ^
13) Why don't Filipino women find Filipino men in their own country? Aren't they just looking for a way out?
It's the norm for Filipino women to date and marry Filipino men, but there are a large number of Philippine women who are partial to foreign men. These are the ones that join our service. Most of these women see foreign men as appealing, charming, and stable. They like to experience what a foreign man can provide them as far as love and affection. They can't see themselves dating or being with Filipino men and want to meet a foreigner. This is the same reason why you are here...because you want to meet someone not from your part of the world but from Asia. Sure there are stories of women from poorer countries and from less privileged families that search and grab onto foreign men in hopes of having a better life. This can and may happen anywhere. With our service, we try to interview all of our women to make sure they are sincere in their search for love and not opportunists. Most of our Filipino women members are well educated, have careers, and come from good families. Back to Top ^
14) What if I don't like any of the women I get introduced to?
We know this will not happen because you will be given the chance to view all the Filipino Women in our membership before and during your Romance Tour. The women will have agreed to meet you too. These are single beautiful women of the Philippines and you will most likely need to get your ticker checked before you start your introductions because these girls are stunningly beautiful and charming. We don't want you to go home empty handed and are confident you will be successful on your first Romance Tour. But, if there ever was a chance that you just couldn't be introduced to a Filipino woman that you feel connected with, then we would offer you a return Romance Tour to give it another try! Back to Top ^
15) What if I like a Filipino Woman I get introduced to, what happens next?
First, we do not advise anyone to rush into any commitment without getting to know each other really well first. But if during the introduction process, you feel you found someone you feel compatible with, and you both agree, then we would stop the Romance Tour and let the two of you date and get to know each other better on your own time. You could then spend the rest of your time taking in some of the Philippines hottest tourist attractions or going out on the town to enjoy some of the night life. If things get serious, we don't arrange marriages, but we can assist you in helping organize a beautiful wedding in the Philippines. We also offer our complete visa services if you want to take your beautiful new Fiancee or Spouse home with you! Back to Top ^
16) What if I already have a Penpal in the Philippines and I'm coming to meet her, can you still assist me?
Coming to the Philippines to solely meet your Penpal is not a problem, we can arrange that. Coming to the Philippines to meet your Penpal, plus take one of our Romance Tours doubles the fun and ensures you don't go home empty handed! Keep in mind one of the biggest mistakes foreign men make is flying half way around the world to meet just one woman that they met online. When they arrive, the woman is usually not even close to what they had imagined. They end up being shorter, fatter, uglier, or just plain, well, plain. This is where we step in. We provide you the edge, the edge to meet many gorgeous Filipino women who are ready to meet you. Most of the men that come to meet that one girl they met online wished they had used our service. They said it would have saved them a lot of pain and misery. What if things don't work out with your penpal? Taking a Romance Tour will make sure you are introduced to many more single ladies! Back to Top ^
17) Are these Romance Tours legal?
We strictly adhere to Philippine Law in that we do not match Filipino women to foreign men for marriage nor are there any promises of marriage being made. We don't share personal contact information of the women members to any of our foreigner clients, and vise versa, until given consent. We screen foreign men prior to being introduced to pre-screened Filipino women. Our service offers a way for foreign men to meet Filipino women who give consent to meeting each another through a personal introduction as part of our Romance Tour. With our Romance Tour, we provide a way for individuals to properly meet each other in an honest and safe environment with hopes they will develop their first meeting into a long term relationship full of love and happiness. All members of this service are of legal age and have decided on their own to join our service. We do not charge women for joining our service nor do we give them any benefit other than introducing them to foreign men who freely choose to take our Romance Tour. Both parties have no harmful intentions and we only introduce Filipino women to foreign men who come from countries that have strong laws to protect women rights, health, and safety. Back to Top ^
18) How long have you been doing these Romance Tours?
We are the longest running introduction service in the Philippines and have been conducting Romance Tours since 1995. The business recently changed management and we provide an honest service with top quality products and services. Back to Top ^
19) How are your Romance Tours better than other methods I've seen?
There are a large number of foreign men seeking to meet decent Filipino women for love and long term relationship. Many men join free or paid dating sites and chat rooms in hopes to meet these women. Some men sign-up for group tours that meet a few times a year where a large group of men are gathered together to meet a few Filipino ladies. The success rate of all these types of services is very low compared to being personally introduced on our Romance Tour. By taking one of our Romance Tours, you will be able to personally meet many beautiful, sincere Filipino Women, anytime of the year, on your schedule. You will be able to meet each of the ladies one-on-one and ask each of them questions to get to know if you are compatible. None of the other services offer that level of personal service. Our Romance Tour give you the assurance that your time and money is well spent by giving you top quality introductions and impeccable services. Back to Top ^
20) I found other agencies doing the same thing. How do I know which one to choose?
First, we are the longest running introduction service in the Philippines. We started conducting Romance Tours in 1995 and have a proven track record. Sure there are some copycat introduction agencies out there. There are even some that have even gone as far as copying the entire website that we used to have and our business model just to try to portray that it was their original idea.
Our website and all of its contents are copyright protected, so that means you are dealing with the original brand and all the years of experience that comes with it. We could say we are the best because we have been around the longest. Or, we could say, we are the best because of our affordable prices and wide choice of services. But our best feature is our honesty in delivering those top quality products and services to you.
Most other agencies are second rate, at best, and don't stack up to our level of experience and expertise. We have been around for a while and we know the market and what works best. Many agencies startup, come and go, but have never compare to the level of quality and service that we offer. With our new website and vast array of services, we have simply the best way for you to meet beautiful Filipino women! If you are unsure of an agency that you see advertised or hear about, please contact us for an honest review. We will assist you in making the right choice so can you have an enjoyable time in the Philippines. Back to Top ^
21) What kind of weather does the Philippines have?
The Philippines has a hot tropical climate. The climate is considered to be a tropical maritime with a distinct dry season and rainy season. Some areas such as Cebu and Iloilo are protected by the surrounding mountains and hills from the force of the typhoons high winds and heavy rains. The average temperature ranges from 21 to 32°C (75 to 90°F) in the Philippines. Is does cool off at night and there are plenty of establishments with air conditioning if you get too hot. Back to Top ^
22) What should I bring?
Bring your passport that is valid for at least 6 months past your arrival in the Philippines. Make a photo copy of it and put it in a safe place in case you lose your passport and need to get a replacement. Bring your return airline ticket so it's easy for you to get your visitor visa when you arrive. Bring your ATM card and Pin, there are plenty of ATMs here to withdraw money. Bring plenty warm weather clothes like shorts, flip-flops, t-shirts. Bring a few sets of nice clothes so you look good for the ladies and to go out on the town. Have a fresh haircut and trimmed facial hair, as the ladies like their men to look clean and neat. Bring your swimsuit and sunshades too! Don't pack too heavy. Here there is only 220v, so bring a converter for any 110V appliances you bring from home, like a shaver or hairdryer. If you found you forgot something or need something while you are here, it's okay, you can get it all here at one of the Philippine shopping outlets. Back to Top ^
23) What else is there to do besides the introductions and sitting in my hotel room?
You are on vacation, so live it up! We will assign you a Tour Guide the moment you step off the airplane, so can enjoy the Philippines and the many great places to see and do. We offer guided tours to many of the Philippines hottest tourist spots (eg Cebu tourist spots). And there are many shopping malls and places for night life entertainment. Once you find your sweetheart, you might want to take her to one of the islands like Bohol Island where you get to see Chocolate Hills and the famous Tarsier Monkey! In the Philippines you will have the best time of your life with your own Tour Guide making all the arrangements!

24) How far will my money go in the Philippines? Where can I get cash?
The current exchange rate is about P43 Philippine Pesos per US Dollar. For that, you can get a taxi to just about anywhere in the major cities for about P60 Pesos. You can get a haircut for P50, a meal for about P300 or take in a new release movie for P150. There are numerous banks and ATM Machines, so no problem getting cash for your fun filled days sightseeing and adventurous nights out. Back to Top ^
25) Will someone always be available in case I need assistance?
Yes! Once you arrive, we'll provide you with a cell phone so you can call or text us anytime you need assistance. Doesn't matter if it's in the middle of the night, we will help you keep your bearing. We will stick with you during the day or be just a phone call away during the night, 24/7. Back to Top ^
26) In what locations do you do the Romance Tours? Which is the best location?
We currently do our Romance Tours in Manila, Bicol, Iloilo, Cebu and Davao. In our opinion, if we were to pick the best place, we feel that Cebu has the most beautiful girls of all the Philippines. It's because they are part of the original Spanish settlers and have a mixed Malayan blood which makes them very exotic looking. We also like Cebu because it is easy to get to, easy to navigate around and fairly cheap on the wallet for a tourist. This is why we consider Cebu City as our favorite place to conduct our Romance Tours. After Cebu, think about going to either Iloilo or Bicol. Both have beautiful women and awesome scenery.
Back to Top ^
27) Is it safe for me in the Philippines?
Manila has a lot of people and crime can be high in some of the areas. Mostly pickpocketers. Cebu City is the second largest city in the Philippines, but has a surprisingly low crime rate. Same with Davao in at 3rd. Bicol and Iloilo are really safe. Most of these smaller cities are safer than most comparable cities in the US and around the world. Filipinos, in general, are very friendly and accommodating people. They are not looking to start a fight or cause anyone harm. You are pretty safe in the Philippines. Never once has anyone one of our clients experienced a problem while on one of our Romance Tours. You could run into an occasional pick-pocketer, but for the most part, the Philippines is very safe. Just stay on the beaten path. Back to Top ^
28) Are there any good medical and dental services available? Where can I get medicine?
No need to worry about medical care. The Philippines is loaded with top quality medical facilities and are usually within walking distance or a short taxi ride from your hotel. The hospitals have modern medical services just like you are used to in your country and they provide excellent care. If you need dental care, there are many US Certified Dentists here. They can provide deep discounts on your teeth cleaning and dental repairs. That is why some men come here just for that. There are also many branded and generic drugstores available that carry the types and brands of medicine you are used to back home. Back to Top ^
29) Is the water safe to drink? What about the food?
Yes, in some areas the water is safe to drink and even straight from the tap, but most people drink filtered water. 5 gallons of filtered mineral water costs around P40 pesos and most the restaurants provide this filtered water for free with their meals. The food is very good here. Just stick to the places that look clean and presentable. Check out our page on good places to eat to get a better idea of the types of food you will find and what is recommended. Back to Top ^
