Having been in the Army myself, and having an uncle who served in the Philippines, this was especially interesting to me. You see the sites by bus after the boat trip, and have time to visit the museum, which is very well done. The included lunch was delicious, and plenty of food with a nice variety. You can also climb the tower if desired for a panoramic view.

The WWII and Corregidor Island Tour is a must for those who have an interest in history, especially World War II history. Those who have only a passing interest in history will not be disappointed. The views from the island, the local scenery and wildlife make the visit well worthwhile.
The early departure time from Manila is needed as there is much to see in a day. Any signs of drowsiness are soon blown away by the ferry crew who start the short one hour voyage with an entertaining dance routine.
Upon arrival at the island you are allocated to a small open air bus designed to resemble the trams which operated on the island leading up to its fall to the Japanese in 1942. Each bus has a personal guide. Our guide was amazing. He was a real character and his commentary and engagement with everyone made the tour both informative and entertaining.
The walk through the Malinta tunnel is a must. The audio visual display provides an insight into what it must have been like in the dark days leading to the fall of the island.
Lunch, included in my ticket, was served in a marquee near the Spanish Lighthouse. The food is plentiful and quite tasty. The local drink provided was not to my taste but you are able to purchase other drinks if you so desire and chilled water is also provided.
Time constraints prohibits the tour visiting all points of interest on the island. You will visit the significant historical sites. If you are interested in spending more time exploring the island in detail I it is possible to stay overnight on the island. Overnight stays are not part of this tour.
On the trip back to Manila I could not help wondering what it must have been like enduring the hardships while under siege by the Imperial Japanese Army, with no relief possible and an uncertain future. It makes you appreciate the time in which we live and the sacrifice of others such that we can enjoys such times. Lest we forget!

This was our best tour by far. We loved the whole day, had brilliant weather and the tour guide for bus three was so knowledgeable. For my husband an ex artillery army man the two of them found the whole experience a sharing of knowledge. The Malinta tunnel light show excellent, War memorial excellent and the museum excellent. Lunch at Corredgidor Inn was delicious and plenty of time allowed so you didnt need to wolf it down. I am an avid photographer and the buildings, ruins and guns made this whole day a photographers dream session. Dont miss!

This tour was fantastic and highly informative. I learnt so much about the Filipino's involvement in WWII. The island is absolutely beautiful and I loved that the relics of the war are still there for us to see. The Pacific war memorial was also lovely. Mae-our guide- was very knowledgable and lots of fun. Unfortunately the sound and light show in Malinta Tunnel could have been great but we were unable to hear the commentary.
Overall I would highly recommend this tour for anyone, especially those who are interested in WWII history

Absolutely the best thing I did while visiting the Philippines. I am not much of a history buff, but this has definitely sparked a desire to read and study about the strategic importance of the island.
