We all enjoyed this tour. The tourist guide and driver are very professional and on time. There are quite a selection of food but they’re not very tasty. I think there was a sign that we will have to pay extra for the leftovers on our plate and I tried to diligently finish it even though I didn’t like it.

There was a good selection of food at the buffet. The cultural dance was done well and the dancers were well rehearsed. The music was performed on traditional instruments, which was a different type of sound but was found to be interesting. Highly recommend for visitors that are not familiar with Filipino culture to attend.

For many years I havent seen the area. I recollect the days I was in college regarding history of Philippines. I was so proud to take my daughter and Fiance around the country. I love it.

The dinner and show was excellent. My kids and niece enjoyed learning more about their heritage. Carmen our tour guide and Ariel our driver were very hospitable as well. Carmen gave an overview of the places we passed and the history. She was awesome. Thank you very much.

The dances and costumes superbly demonstrated the diversity of Filipino culture. Truly very nice! We liked the bamboo dances the best for the rhythms and complexity. The audience/diners that night were all on our feet applauding most of the routines. And the musicians? They were fantastic! Not only were they superior on their stringed instruments, but when they moved to the native and innovative! percussion instruments, we were blown away. The dinner buffet, though offering fewer selections that other larger restaurants', was nevertheless delicious and sufficient for our palates. The porchetta with the crispiest skin ever was exceptional!

The experience of seeing this show, meals served, location, pick up and drop off combined with knowledge of Manila from our host was just brilliant. We really enjoyed our night out and pricing was good value.
Thanks to all concerned

Dinner was not great but show was entertaining. Traffic was real bad on a Friday night while trying to get from one end of Manila to the other. Lots of patience needed!! :

The evening began with delicious food in a spanish style resturant, Barbaras. The atmosphere was delightful and the food delicious. Every need was met with our waiters. Then the show began and we enjoyed a variety of performances from the spanish period to classical Philippines with almost Balanese type costuming, to gamalan and bamboo pole dancing. Initially we began with flamenco guitars and cello. Loved this evening totally. Lots of tourists there but it did not matter. Went out into the courtyard and took some beautiful photos.

Don't book this tour. Go to the Barbara restaurant at 6-7pm yourself. It will be 1/4 the price and the EXACT SAME dinner/activities.

The food is way too salty, but the performance was good!
