Cebu City and the cost of a full time taxi
(Scranton, Pa USA)
Basically, I was there one year ago. I stayed at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino. Security is great, I could have done without the late night entertainment, but it wasn't extremely loud and could be largely ignored. The hotel was clean except for extremely little bugs I saw in the room (almost microscopic, and I believe that they were white in color).
The real issue is a driver. I don't know whether or not I was ripped off, but if anyone can advise me, it would be appreciated for my next trip back to Cebu. A full time driver, w/a cab, cost me an average of 3000Php per day for 8 days. On top of that, I had to pay for fuel (propane) and of course, his food... not to mention feeding his young daughter whom he always seemed to have with him.
Isn't there SOME reasonable means of hiring a driver with the car/fuel etc being all inclusive for something less outrageous than appx $75.00 USD per day?
Don't hold back... tell me what you think!
