What You Can Expect
Travel aboard an air-conditioned vehicle and drive along Ayala Boulevard, stopping briefly at Nielson Tower, home to the Filipinas Heritage Library. Then, drive past Forbes Park, an exclusive residential enclave dubbed ‘Millionaire's Row,’ on your way to visit the American Cemetery and Memorial to pay tribute to the fallen soldiers of World War II.
Continue to Old Manila via the scenic Roxas Boulevard, passing through Luneta (also called Rizal Park). Arrive in Intramuros, a fortified area that's the city's oldest district, where you'll stroll along cobblestone paths past city walls, church ruins and other relics of the Spanish Conquistadors era.
Enter UNESCO World Heritage-listed San Agustin Church, one of the country’s oldest churches, and end at Fort Santiago, a Spanish fortress where Dr Jose Rizal, the country’s national hero, spent his last days in incarceration and wrote his famous ‘My Last Farewell’ poem.
After your tour, you’ll be dropped off at your hotel.
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.
