Discover Manila's rich history, cultural heritage and architectural grandeur on this full-day tour. Stroll through the ancient walled city of Intramuros, explore the Philippines' financial capital in Makati City, and visit ancient churches and historic museums.
Your tour begins with a morning hotel pickup and drive past the majestic Mall of Asia, the Coconut Palace—a mansion uniquely made using hardwood and coconut shells—and the beautiful Rizal Park, which commemorates the Philippine national hero José Rizal.
Next, explore Intramuros, the oldest quarter of Manila. Continue your tour to Casa Manila—a remnant of Manila's colonial past and museum depicting the Spanish “Ilustrado” lifestyle. Then pay a visit to the San Agustin Church and Museum—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—and marvel at its architectural designs and unique trompe-l'oeil murals on its ceilings and walls.
Break for a delicious lunch at a local restaurant before heading to bustling Makati City. Pass by Nielson Field—once an airfield for the United States Army Air Forces—and the National Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, which dates back to the late 16th century.
