Nice small group tour! The tour out to Tagaytay was excellent. There is some travel time involved as it is 120 km round trip driving from the city. The stop to see one of the many local fruit markets and coffee was also very good. The city side version was also very good. The highlight for me was the American cemetery. This was definitely one of the top sites compared to Arlington and the American cemetery in Normandy.
The driver was excellent and the tour guide was awesome. He knew his history even when questions popped up. He had an excellent sense when to talk and when not too. He pointed out photo spots just before we got there so you could prepare. He also had pride and passion for his country and his work.
We had a really good time..The tour guide was very professional and gave us lots of great information about the Philippines. A great introduction and beginning of our stay in P.I.
Very experienced guide knew so much history . Driver was most accommodating and made stops along the route so we could experience the local color of roadside markets , Civet coffee, Starbucks coffee etc -- well worth it
Awesome tour. Will book with your agency on my next return. Friendly and knowledgable staff who really knows the true history of the areas along the tour route.
the experience was great but once again and this is typical for the hilippines I paid to much because I am a westener. My philippino bf got working and investigated if we would have booked locally through the pinoi connections we would have paid far less but that is the philipines all over.
Doing what: Cultural Dance Show with Dinner in Manila
5 stars experience! The guide was exceptional and we had so much fun!
Our guide and driver picked us up at our hotel on time. We were given a tour with one other couple in an air condition small van with large windows. The guide had in depth knowledge of history of the area. He was able to answer any questions concerning the history, economics, and politics of the Philippines. Having a separate driver helped tremendously. We were able to see and experience Manila in the limited time we had available.
We had a wonderful tour, and tour guide. Thoroughly enjoyed our day. The lunch was excellent, and more than we anticipated. Thanks.
While the tour itinerary are to the regular Manila spots, the tour was enjoyable because the guide is so knowledgeable and yet fun. He delivered his commentaries with wit and depth. We got to know a lot more about Manila and Philippines, more than just visiting the sites. For that reason this tour is well worth doing, given the little time we had. The lady at the tour desk was also very helpful.
I can't rate this tour since there was bad weather on the night of our tour. Fortunately, our party was offered a dinner with cultural show which was absolutely great. Dinner at Zamboanga Restaurant was delicious and everyone was very polite and helpful. Maybe next time I will be able to make the cruise. I will rate the Zamboanga Restaurant and Traditional Cultural Show instead since I have to rate something to submit my review.
Doing what: Sunset or Night Dinner Cruise on Manila Bay
The morning part of the tour into the coutryside outside Manila for Tagaytay tour was beautiful. The weather was fine and the view of the lake and the volcano was great. This was followed by a magnificent lunch overlooking the lake. The aftrenoon tour was excellent and you leant and saw a lot about the history of Manila and the Philippines, as well as an overview of the Spanish and American inflence on the Philippino culture. It was a pity that one of the historic building was closed for renovation so we couldn't go into it. Overall a great day.
I was the only person on this tour and had a wonderful day, could spend extra time at each venue. I can also recommend ther Lunch very enjoyable and pleanty to eat.
Touring by viator has been a good experience, yet again. This is the second time, the first being in Shanghai and Beijing.
Could do better on selection of restaurants for lunch (which was part of the package). It didnt help the tour guide that we were strict vegetarians but there should still be some better options.
All in all, it was a good experience
The tour guide Richard was very knowledgeable and informative. The visit to Tagaytay was enjoyable as well as the wonderful lunch. We hit all the main sites in Manila. Overall, I would recommend this trip as a good overview of Manila and Tagaytay.
