Step into the past as you explore the bustling metropolises of Manila and Makati with an informative guide. After hotel pickup, you’re transferred by air-conditioned vehicle to your first stop: the American Cemetery and Memorial, which is the largest cemetery in the Pacific for US soldiers killed during WWII.
After exploring the massive burial ground with your guide, you’ll drive to Rizal Park, passing through Makati’s Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) along the way. Take a look at the Rizal Monument commemorating José Rizal, a revered national hero, before continuing on to the Spanish Colonial walled city of Intramuros.
Arriving at this former seat of the Spanish government, follow your guide on foot over the cobblestone paths to Fort Santiago. You'll hear anecdotes about Rizal’s imprisonment, and find the bronze footprints that symbolize his final footsteps to his execution.
After this historical overview on the Phillipines, switch gears for a relaxing afternoon spent at Manila Ocean Park. Following lunch at the Makansutra Asian Food Village, check out the jellyfish exhibit and more than 5,000 species of marine life at the Oceanarium, then conclude with an entertaining Sea Lion Show.
Your 6-tour ends with drop-off at your Manila or Makati hotel.
