Very good tour but a long day

The tour was well planned and organized and our guide, May, was awesome!! It is a very long day - tour departs at 6:00am and we didn't get back to our hotel until about 5:30pm. Not sure if they can shorten the tour given the ferry transit time but visitors should be prepared for a long day.
Only for WW II buffs

Very little to see or do on Corregidor. The high point of trip was when the catamaran taking us back from the island was buffeted by a typhoon, necessitating passengers don life vests. The crew performed magnificently. I was tempted to give an even lower grade because the vendor didn't respond to about six e-mails and phone calls trying to find out where and when I would be picked up. Didn't find out until the night before.
Excellent and mind bogling place to visit

Everything was very good, it was pleasant trip with no hurdles. The viator representative picked me up from hotel, then to the ferrie and then to the Tram no.2, back to ferrie then van drop back to Hotel. The guide Erwin was very knowledgeable regarding the facts and he explained very well and he gave quantum time to visit and explore each site and to take selfie. The Manila tunnel was amazing and even the explanation about the history was very good. Overall I enjoyed the nature, greenery, the food and the ferrie.

Loved visiting this place as it brought history alive. The Japanese invasion of the Pacific was horrible and with luck on our side we were able to return the Philippines to the Filipino people. This tour showed us the effort exerted to make this happen. The tour was comfortable an very informative. It kept me interested the entire time and was not difficult at all.

For me, this tour was more educational and nostalgic, if you will, rather than a sightseeing tour. It really felt like going back in time, and our tour guide whose name I completely forgot unfortunately ably led us to it by giving a detailed account of the events, the precise dates, and the various key players in the siege, defense, and eventual fall of Corregidor into the hands of the Japanese imperial army. I was really touched by the lights and sounds presentation inside the Malinta tunnel which capped the day tour. Hotel pick up and drop off was well coordinated and was reasonably swift notwithstanding the infamous Manila traffic jams. The buffet lunch served as part of the tour package was reasonable and generous in terms of quality and quantity. The ferry ride was somewhat long and a bit boring though, and I wonder if Viator could explore other faster, more comfortable modes of water transport to and from Corregidor.

This is our third trip to Corregidor, but the first time with our four children ages 11, 14, 16, 18. The tour moves fast enough to keep the attention of the kids, while not feeling rushed. At each stop, we had time to look around and explore. I would recommend going to the Malinta Tunnel. They've improved the presentation since our last visit in 2015. It was the capstone of the tour.

I had a challenge with the reservation and mistakenly had the wrong date selected. One simple phone call to Viator and follow-up with the tour company on the ground resolved it with no problem. The tour is very well run, you get to see a lot of the Island in a short amount of time and actually walk through history, and the lunch was good too. Excellent experience!!!

The tour of the island was great. However the price we were charged for the tour was a rip-off. We were charged 125 per person for a tour that costs 65. All we received for that additional fee was transportation to and from the dock a short 15 minute ride. A cab would have cost 10 for the both of us. We were ripped off by tour Viator.

This tour was excellent. The guide was very knowledgeable and did a great job. The island itself was beautiful and the WWII ruins were amazing. Ther was also a very nice lunch about halfway through the tour and there was plenty of time allotted at each stop to take pictures.

That was an amazing Tour. The Island itself is so green , so pure , so clean and so strange in the same time . All ruins of that Army building make you feel back in time , trying to imagine how was life 60-70 years ago . It is really worth to visit it . The guide , a very professional lady was more than a very nice presence . I'm sorry to have forget her name . She was lovely !
