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.
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.
Everyone enjoyed the food and the show. The tour guide was well knowledgeable about Manila and she explained many of the site while traveling to the show.
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!! :
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!
