I’ve been to Manila more times than I can count, but only knew it as a chaotic, congested city that I avoid during my trips to the Philippines. Our tour guide Fernando (I could be wrong, it was a couple days ago) was awesome! He was so knowledgeable about manilas history and made the tour so interesting. 100% worth your money and you get to learn about the rich history of Manila and see spots that you might not have even known existed in the midst of the big city. The van was super clean with AC and our tour guide did not make us feel rushed, answered any questions and really kept us engaged. Great if you want to make the most out of your visit to Manila!

Richard was the highlight. He was fun and very funny. He is quite knowledgable in the areas we visited. We appreciated his knowledge and insight into the history and how it connected to how the people live today.
We appreciated he came into the buildings with us and explained more than the signs could contain. It helped us feel more connected to the sight.
We appreciated him stopping at places we had interest that were not a stop on the tour. (It did help we were the only two people. But we appreciated the tour was not canceled even though we were the only two)
We loved the drivers sense of safety and felt safe with him. Seeing this kind of traffic for the first time, feeling safe meant allot to us.
Mostly we lived how Richard card about his country and the people.

The tour was great, highly recommend if you have half a day free in Manila! I was a solo booking and was picked up safety directly from my hotel in a very nice air conditioned mini bus, we then went on to pick up the other booking. The driver and tour guide were very friendly and informative. It was interesting to learn about the history of Manila and stop off at various cultural hot spots. Due to the storm the previous day there was 1 stop closed unexpectedly, so instead we were offered to see China Town (oldest in the world) to make up for it.

While the guide was informative and interesting, the tour was more driving around in Manila’s traffic jams than stopping at the sites. We couldn’t stop at Rizal Park (not sure why) and both old churches in the Intramuros were fully occupied with weddings, so we’re unavailable to tour.

The American WW2 cemetery was moving and Fort Santiago was good, but most other things were just viewed from the van.

My colleagues and I had just one afternoon of free time to explore Manila during a weeklong work trip and we are so glad we spent it doing this tour. Our guide, Troy, was friendly, patient, and incredibly knowledgeable, truly a walking encyclopedia on the history, culture and politics of the country. I wish we had had more time in each location and perhaps an opportunity to grab a snack or drink; but we had arrived late to our meetup spot due to traffic and congestion in Manila is generally very intense so I understand why that probably wouldn't have been possible regardless.

Nice tour including both old and new Manila. The bus was not the best for tall people to actually see through the windows to follow the guides stories. Very knowledgeable guide who shared lots of history. I think the two churches could be replaced with other historical monuments or buildings. European are not as keen as Asians to see churches. Memorial park was a great stop.

Ignore the previous review from Annette who claims that solo travelers are “not allowed” because I was a “solo” yesterday, August 1, 2022 and had no problems. In fact, the tour guide was very sweet, capable and flexible to my needs as well as the other tour guests! He knew the history of Intramuros and the famous Rizal, the father of the Philippine revolution. The driver was excellent and the van was clean and in good order.

I particularly like the tour because I can get picked up in my hotel as it is in Makati area. I also like the places that I went to. Anyone interested in history will have it here covered. I would've loved spending a little bit of time in the San Agustin church area, but it was no problem. Totally understand the limit of the time (4hours). The bus we rode in was also very nice.
I recommend this tour to anybody wanting to get to know the remarkable history of the Filipinos.

Lovely tour, the guide was very informative and fun. Saw alot of interesting sites: WW2 memorial, Jose Rizal monument and memorial, and saw many sights in the old walled city. Ended the tour at a great gift shop. Even though its already a 4 hour tour, I only wish I could’ve spent more time at each location, every spot was so interesting. A great way to spend a morning or afternoon.

This was a great tour, very informative and the tour guide was excellent. Yes, it felt a little rushed, however I do expect that on these short tours which are more of a taster. I do wish we had more time at Fort Santiago to explore 'solo'. There was just so much to see and I would have loved the opportunity to wander on my own for a little bit. The reason this review is 3 stars is that on our tour we did not visit San Agustin Church. I understand the traffic was shocking on a Saturday afternoon, however, I was sitting in the van fully expecting to go there, when the next minute I am back at my hotel with no warning or checking if it was okay to skip this part. I was bitterly disappointed as this was my only free day in Manila and there was no opportunity for me to visit on my own. Would suggest you market this tour as 4-5 hours to allow for the traffic situation and to avoid disappointment. Nevertheless, what I did see was excellent & I found it very informative.
