Friendly Advice : for first timers. 1st do warm up or stretching to avoid any body pain at the end. Hahahaha

You can walk or to ride on a horse.

Fees :
Environmental fee - 100
Tour Guide - 500
Horse - 500
Boat Ride from batangas to taal : 1200 per boat max of 7 pax

Environmental fee is a must
You can also go alone without any guide. Walk on your own risk... Hahaaha
Horse ride, if you are not used on walking or hiking much better.
Bring extra shirt, towel, hat, water.
Boat man may ask for parking fee around 100.

There is a lot of travel accounts that offer good group package for a half day taal travel which comes with free buko juice, water and sumbrero and plus a friendly tour guide. You can just plan ahead or go to taal on a whim, its your choice because there are a lot of people along tagaytay ang batangas that offers a taal trip.
You will ride a boat going to taal, choose walkng/trekking by a trail with or without a guide or rent a horse to go up and down. then eat lunch afterwards, coz you can finish it in half a day if you start early and based on how fast you trek..

Holiday Raining Trek but it was very satisfying. Having a boat ride and you have a choice to take donkey or walk. It is better to walk, a bit challenging good for beginners. The steam if you are near the crater was very amazing.

1. Engage with your hired tour guide.

2. Bring your own water coz the bottled water is not affordable.

3. I just remember taking down the boat a photographer will take photo of you and you have no choice but to take it. If you want souvenir take it, but if you do not want insist that you do not want.

About three months ago, my wife and I, together with our youngest son, went on a trip to Tagaytay City to fetch our eldest son (it was meant to be a surprise trip unbeknownst to "kuya"). Our son joined this youth group formed by our Marriage Encounter community. Anyway, to cut the story short, our time there was spent mostly with the "graduation" and culminating activity of the group. Still, I can honestly say that, looking at Taal Volcano (it was breathtakingly so close to the venue), one could honestly feel proud to be a Filipino and marvel at what God has given us, though kidding aside, I must say we should, as a nation, be more earnest at keeping our surroundings spotless clean, minding where we throw our garbage and all. Cleanliness and discipline still count as a sore spot we should improve on.
