Weekend Adventure at L & J Bistro Bed and Breakfast (Tagaytay)

Wednesday, November 14, 2018

Because of its proximity to Metro Manila, Tagaytay City has been a popular weekend getaway destination since the 90s. Known for its mild climate, the city is just 2-3 hours away from the metro. And with easy access to Taal Volcano and other points of interest in Cavite and Batangas, Tagaytay serves as the perfect base for travelers. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing or adventure-filled weekend, the city will surely have something for you!

A month ago, my friends and I went on a spontaneous weekend getaway to Tagaytay. Like most millenial travelers nowadays, we travel DIY anytime, anywhere. However, getting around Tagaytay or visiting other must-see attractions near the city was a challenge. Some attractions like Caleruega Church in Nasugbu or Gingerbread House in Alfonso require a private vehicle or a rental tricycle. None of us own a car and because we don't want to bother with commuting or risk getting overcharged by a Manong Tricycle, we decided to avail a tour with L and J Bistro Bed and Breakfast.

At L and J Bistro Bed Breakfast, you may avail the following tours:

Half Day City Tour - 1,400 pesos per pax (2pax min.) or 750 pesos per pax (6pax min.)
For the half day city tour, you can choose either Option A or Option B. The tour starts at around 8:00 AM and finishes at 11:30 AM. Please note the fee on this tour already includes air-conditioned van transfer and entrance fees.

Tucked within Casa de Corazon Events Place, a popular wedding venue in Tagaytay, this BnB has their own bistro which means you will never get hungry. The staff treated us very well and responded to our requests almost immediately. The thing that most impressed me about L and J Bistro Bed and Breakfast was its amazing view of Taal Lake.
