looking for 3-4 day tour of the Philippine rice terraces

Has anyone used and can recommend tour companies that offer 3-4 days of touring the rice terraces ? I've searched the internet and sent emails to some but I barely get replies. Some replied but when I make specific requests, I get no further communication. One acknowledged my online request for info, but I never got anything. Some contacts give cell phone numbers, but I have a difficult time sending text messages. Calling is quite expensive from the US, and I'm sure calls are expensive also to the recipient. Thanks.

I have a relative who is a travel agent for Am Ex in Manila. She may be able to help you with this request. Just tell her that her Uncle Bill from Houston gave you her name.

She is Myrna Casas. Her emails are below:

Thanks cocoray. I am familiar with Ivan Henares and enjoy reading his blogs. However, he does not run tours, and his Philippine travels are mostly good for those who reside in the country. I've tried contacting the email addresses of those he mentioned in his blogs.

Thanks BillT, I'll email Myrna.

Banares, were you able to find a tour company to take you to the rice terraces? Did you go? We're planning a trip for December and I'd love to find a (relatively) convenient way to add this remote destination to our itinerary.
