MANILA, Philippines - Those with wanderlust exploring tourist spots in the Philippines will discover that Northern Luzon is actually a haven for awe-inspiring landscapes and seascapes that is peppered with thrilling adventures and experiences.

 Travelers can now gain easier access to the wonders of Northern Luzon destinations through a trustworthy and reliable bus transportation provider such as Victory Liner, Inc. (VLI) — currently the largest bus company in Luzon that has been serving bus routes for more than 70 years now.

 Combining the excitement of travel with the highest levels of comfort and safety is the bus company’s premier offering in its continuing effort to promote Philippine tourism and allow eager travelers to unravel various treasures that Northern Luzon has to offer.

 To deliver on this promise, Victory Liner has partnered with Travel Factor, one of the country’s biggest adventure tour providers, in establishing a series of group tours aimed at exploring the wonders that provinces up north has to offer.

 Dubbed “Byaheng Victory,” the group tours series was designed to help transport thousands of people each year to famed tourist spots and adventure sites in Northern Luzon. These include climbing stints in Mt. Pinatubo and Mt. Pulag, spelunking in Sagada, whitewater rafting and kayaking in Cagayan, exploring magical terrains in Baguio and Tuguegarao, as well as surfing giant waves in Baler, Quezon and Zambales.  “Each year, we have been helping transport people to various scenic spots in the country, and we’ve actually succeeded in bringing about 1,200 people to Baguio and Tuguegarao alone,” notes Cedric Valera, managing partner at Travel Factor.

 Cedric adds that his agency had chosen to partner with Victory Liner for the group tours because they share the same mission — showcasing the best that the Northern Luzon provinces have to offer in the most exciting and comfortable way possible.

“Imagine passengers traveling for hours on end before they can reach their destination,” says Cedric. “Safe and convenient transportation is definitely of prime importance to us and only Victory Liner, I believe, has the capability to provide travelers that ultimate road trip experience.”  

The bus company’s fleet of more than 900 modern buses is known for their cleanliness. The buses are also air-conditioned and come equipped with Wi-Fi signal to allow its passengers to enjoy free use of the Internet during regular bus trips.

 For the longer “Byaheng Victory” tours, the provincial buses feature coaches that have wider legroom, entertainment video system and on-board restrooms.

 “Travelers are very much pleased with our Byaheng Victory adventures. In fact, most of them would sign up again for another trip. Some of them are even willing to repeat the same tour again but with a different set of friends this time,” shares Cedric.

  Like Victory Liner, the travel agency is also a staunch supporter of local services and products to support Philippine tourism, and ultimately, nation-building. Local guides, restaurants and locally-owned accommodations are always availed to make the tours a more authentic experience.
