What You Can Expect
After pickup from your Manila hotel, your guide will take you on 1-hour drive to the picturesque city of Tagaytay, located on a ridge 2,250 feet (686 meters) above sea level.
When you arrive, visit Palace in the Sky, the ‘rest house’ of former President Ferdinand Marcos. Admire gorgeous panoramic views of Taal Lake, which surrounds Taal Volcano, one of the Philippine’s most active volcanoes.
Stop for lunch at one of the local restaurants, where you'll sample traditional Filipino dishes and some popular regional specialties while soaking in great views. Afterward, head back to Manila for your afternoon tour.
Afternoon: Manila Sightseeing Tour
When you arrive in Manila, drive to the American War Memorial and Cemetery, occupying 52 acres (21 hectares) on a prominent plateau that contains the world’s largest number of graves of fallen World War II soldiers.
Next, experience the hustle and bustle of City of Makati, the Philippines’ financial center, and travel along scenic Roxas Boulevard.
Pass through Rizal Park on the way to Intramuros, a historic fortified area and Manila’s oldest district. Journey down cobblestone streets to UNESCO World Heritage-listed San Agustin Church, which you’ll enter to discover its interesting Baroque carvings and décor.
Your final stop is Fort Santiago, a citadel built by the Spanish conquistador Miguel Lopez de Legazpi. Learn from your guide how this is one of the most important historical sites in Manila. In fact, the national hero of the Philippines, Jose Rizal, was imprisoned here during the Spanish Colonial Period
After your tour, you’ll be dropped off at your hotel.
It was a good way to get a glimpse of the volcano from afar and to see parts of the area much less populated. The tour through the fort and the old area was also quite nice. Our guide was knowledgable and easy to talk to, answering our questions often with historical references. We plan to choose some of the other options on our next trip to Manila.
Great tour guide with fantastic history lesson!
This tour was really great and Richard our guide was very knowledgable. We saw so many sights that were really interesting and Richard was really informative. Unfortunately we had a woman on the tour who talked constantly to her friend not much we could do about that sadly, which made it difficult to hear him, but nonetheless the trip was great and very worthwhile
Excellent tour. Our guide, Richard was very knowledgeable as well as entertaining. Our driver was also very good at navigating through the busy traffic and narrow roads. Lunch was very good. All up, we would definitely rate this tour.
This tour was amazing!

Our tour was great. The tour includes the Manila City but was remove from tour because of the Feadt of Black Nazarene. I would recommend this tour to my friends. The tour guide did an excellent job. He and the driver were very friendly. Tagaytay is beautiful.
Very pleasant day.
Our guide, Richard, spoke excellent English, and provided valued commentary along our trips. He was low key, ensuring that the tour was about our enjoyment and education about Manila and the Philippine Islands.
