The DOME Expedition Tours (DETOUR) was established in 1996 to cater adventure enthusiasts in the tourism industry. Geronimo M. Garcia, a member of the De Oro Mountain Exploreres Club (DOME) Inc. conceptualized it. Its first venture is the Noslek Canopy Walk, which is an eco-tourism project funded by the Department of Tourism. Other adventure tours are white-water rafting “pinoy style,” family camping, river trekking with waterfall hopping, scuba diving and technical caving.

The idea of packaging adventure tours came from Mr. Garcia’s experience as a member of the DOME Club (founded in 1992). The club basically promotes outdoor activities for fun in promotion of environmental conservation. These activities are primarily the core of the packages of DETOUR. DOME member who are trained and qualified with the necessary skills relevant to outdoor activities are tapped by DETOUR as primary guides to its tours.

Following hereunder are the various tours, their description and the corresponding packaged rates. For inquiry or reservations, please contact JEROME GARCIA, DEPT. OF TOURISM-10 or SENNY S. MACAS.
