Who are Penafrancia Tours?

If every region has its own major bus company to boast about, Peñafrancia Tours and Travel Transport Inc. is Bicol’s very own provincial luxury bus. Founded in 1989, Peñafrancia gets tourists and Bicolanos alike to almost all areas in the region. With two decades of reliable service under its belt, Peñafrancia Tours and Travel Transport Inc. reigns over its competitors in Bicolandia.

In case you’re wondering, Peñafrancia derives its name from Our Lady of Peñafrancia – none other than the patron saint of the region! This is a derivative of the company’s long-standing tradition, commitment to safety and responsible business conduct, as well as dedication to both God and countrymen. Echoing the company’s slogan: Welcome aboard!
