A very good introduction, especially for a first time visitor. You get to see a lot in a half day tour, and also get a chance to shop for local merchandise. Our guide, Omar, was so pleasant and fun to be with.
It was an amazing tour! Neal was perfect and knows a lot about Manila and the Philippines after all those years working as a guide!
I guess the best would be to do the tour during the week cause of the traffic.. for it not to be too bad.
Intra-muros and the Fort were quite interesting places to go. The cemetery was awesome too. I had a great time. The group of 5 was perfect too! I recommend the tour!
I highly recommend this tour and the tour company. They were easy to communicate with and the tour was as advertised. The guide spoke very good English and was very informative and accurate with his information. It is good value for the price.
I enjoyed my tour of the city. The tour guide is very knowledgable about the city and was eager to share the information. I would recommend this travel company to future visitors in Manila.
Omar was great! we didn't have much time here as we arrived via ship!
this tour gave us some of the city highlights whilst not taking too long! Omar was even able to recommend what to do following the tour with the limited time left.
The tour was just what we wanted. The guide was very knowledgable and gave us a lot of information about Manila, the culture and the history. I would highly recommend this tour for the first-timers to Manila.
Great highlight tour of Manila. Highly knowledgeable and friendly guide.
Very informative. Just the right amount of time at every stop. Our tour guide Richard was superb.
Omar was a great tour guide! I wish that I was just informed that we were going back to Intercontinental! We went through traffic to get to Manila Hotel to be picked up to get back to traffic the other way. We could have directly gone there ourselves.
Superb value for money! I will recommend it anytime. It was quite surprising seeing Manila in a whole new light! Tour was fun, very informative and the tour guide was excellent! Five star rating!
Our guide Neil and driver Dale were fantastic and both very informative. If you've got a few spare hours in Manila it's worthwhile taking this tour.
5 stars experience! The guide was exceptional and we had so much fun!
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.
Our tour guide Richard was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about Manila and the history of the Philippines. First stop was the American Cemetery. It is beautiful and serene. It's humbling to see the markers and know how great the sacrifice of Americans and Filipinos was during the Second World War. The drive to the American Cemetary through the Forbes Park area isn't that spectacular. The houses are walled and gated so there's not much to see. Next stop was Rizal Park. It's quite a place. It's quite large and there wasn't enough time to walk the entire perimeter. You do get to see the monument to Dr. Jose Rizal, the national hero. The park is well maintained. It was raining at this point so the park wasn't very lively but that's ok. Then we went off to Fort Santiago and Intramuros. There was some renovations works ongoing so parts of the park were closed down. What was open is a nice step back in history. I'm sure one the renovation works are complete, the area will be exceptional. You can get some good views of the Pasig river and bordering cities from the old fort walls. There are several restored buildings where you can see a movie on Filipino history. Last stop is the Church of San Agustin. It's an impressive piece of architecture and certainly worth a tour around. The reason I didn't give the tour a five, even though our guide almost warranted a five himself, was the renovations works, the relative lameness of Forbes Park and the rain.
The only dampener on this was the traffic around US embassy due to a protest march. Other than this the US Cemetery was a humbling experience. The views to the city here are phenomenal. Intramuros I felt we needed alot longer. I suggest taking a full day tour to really explore this section or do it on your own as there was so much to see. Great photography opportunities. Intramuros church is a great experience.
A very nice tour of the old city. Not too long and some good information for those that like that.
Interesting tour - learned a lot about the history of Makati. Would like to suggest the tour guide accompany the tour participants into the Intramuros and Fort Santiago to share stories. Otherwise great tour.
Our guide was good and spoke very good english . At each stop on a sight we had to see something far too little time . We thought the tour guide took into account the traffic because we had to be back in time aboard our cruise, but in the end we had about 2 hours!
it was very good. We had fun. Neal was a great tour guide and Toto was a good driver navigating the congested streets of Manila. This is the second country i used Viator and so far i am happy with their service
Our guide and driver were very good. We had to be picked up at a hotel outside of Manila/Makati originally, and the extra 10 fee and wait time for that part of the experience was not well explained. Once we actually got on the tour itself, it was a good experience.
Good way to see Manila in a short time. Covers the basics well.
