The various dances are meant to represent the various cultures of the country, covering both the Spanish-influenced movements of the northern mountain tribes and the animated tribal movements of the Muslim south.

Finish your evening with a chance to show off your own moves on the dance floor before receiving a drop-off back at your hotel.

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.

This made for a nice first tour of the Philippines for us. The Driver was friendly and the Guide was very informative. Before heading to the dinner/show, they took us to a couple of noteworthy spots in Manila, including to a stunning rooftop view of the city which was amazing. The dinner was good and the show as very enjoyable. The lead/MC was a fabulous and memorable entertainer. I'm still talking about him three days after returning home to the U.S. If there was any negatives, the layout of the restaurant had some obstructed views. The attendees who sat along the sides and in the back frequently had their views blocked. Otherwise, I would recommend this tour/show.

Great night, well done presentation. I wish they wont sit people in the front of the table so we could get a good view of the dances

The cultural dance show is worth visiting, colorful and well prepared though, the image photo
on the internet is not identical with Barbara's restaurant. I would rate the prepared Dinner
Buffet rather average, also once I saw the low price which I compared with our price
asked from the organizer. The pick-up from the Hotel and drop-off was also very fine.
