    Must see museum- just amazing
    The collections and artwork was just amazing. When I saw these things as a kid, I admit, I didn’t appreciate it as much. But now as an adult, it makes me proud of the artist in the Philippines. For my daughter and her friend, they had a great exposure to the history, talent, and stories of the country. We were there for over four hours. I just wish there was a cafe and gift shop so we didn’t have to go out of the museum. Loved the pieces. Some art work needs some restoration and better lighting but the work and care put into the exhibit was amazing.

    A perfect kickoff to our Philippines holiday
    A wonderful tour! Andre is friendly, knowledgeable and engaging and in the few short hours we had we learnt a fascinating summary of Manila’s history, covering the last 400 years and walking through some of the most beautiful spots in the city. The pace was perfect and he had carefully thought out spots to stop and present where shade and seating were available for a hot day, and the option along the way to enjoy chilled water or a delicious avocado ice cream. Definitely worth booking if you would like to have a better understanding of the local culture and history before continuing your holiday.

    Andrei, the tour guide, was amazing. He explained everything very thoroughly and was highly engaging. The tour was well-organised and we learned so much within the short time. I loved learning about our past and the guided tour was the best way to share it with visitors and residents alike.

    Great rainy day in the park
    Ann was a wonderful guide. It was raining during our tour but she got us umbrellas. She did a great job sharing the history of Manila. She was easily understood and a lot of fun. We enjoyed the ice cream and the Kalesa. She even made sure we safely got a taxi at the end.

    Let's learn and have some fun
    We learned about the history of our beloved Filipino citizens who suffers a lot from the hands of the foreign soldiers. It's so fun to ride the two-wheeled horse-drawn vehicle they can tour you around

The tour was excellent. We arrived late but the tour guide waited for us. He was very informative and the tour was accompanied at times with music from his music player. We were provided drinks and ice cream as part of the tour. Also a horse carriage ride. Very good value for money tour and you learn a lot.

Our tour to the Intramuros, Manila on May 20 of this year was everything as it should be: exciting, beautiful, relaxing, informative, a fun social experience, and very well organized. The itinerary was carefully thought through and well balanced. The two tour leaders who were also college professors enthralled us with the history of the Intramuros. Everything worked like clockwork. However, it was the genius of the itinerary, coupled with our two passionate professionals, Ma'am Anne and Sir Andrei, that put this tour into the A-plus category. As a first-timer inside the Intramuros, DSM makes it memorable, unforgettable, pleasing, and fun. I enjoyed and loved the Kalesa ride and ice cream! I learned the new untold history that I'd never heard at school. All in all, I highly recommend Don't Skip Manila to everyone, especially to those who want to know more about Filipino history, and tourism students.

I had a great experience in this tour, I've learned so much about the history of Manila. Before, I thought that Intramuros is just a great place to walk, stay, and relax, but because of this tour I learned the deep background history or every wall, building, statues of this place and special thanks to the tour guides! so professional and easy to bond with, they are also very knowledgeable because they can give you jaw-dropping facts, so be ready hahaha! This tour is also safe because they strictly follow the COVID-19 safety precautions. Thank you for this tour!! one of the memorable tour I've had, you'll never regret booking this tour. lovelots!

It's definitely a great way to get an in-depth look at the history of the Walled City. You really get the full experience, from the most notable sights to the tiniest details.

Our tour guide was also very accommodating, making sure to answer any questions we may have and being mindful of everyone's well-being—especially since it was a hot day at the time and we still had to observe proper health protocols.

Overall, very enjoyable and informative!

Me and my partner attended the tour and we were both delighted with it. The guides were very knowledgeable and friendly throughout, answering all our questions and providing a lot of interesting information on the history of Manila and the Philippines. We felt like we were given a great insight into the history of intramuros and saw much of the walled area thanks to the transport provided. Their passion for Manila is evident and this tour is one of the reasons we were happy to visit Manila, like they say 'don't skip Manila'. Very much recommend this tour.

A very thorough and interesting tour of the Old City. Andrei was a superb guide who is obviously very passionate and knowledgeable about the history of Manila. The tour was over a couple of hours but the time flew by as Andrei kept us well informed and entertained. Can definitely recommend this tour.

I didn't expect to learn so much about the history of Philippines from this walking tour. Jose was such a great guide who's knowledgeable and responsible, and he definitely exceled his role as a guide also on raising awarenes/ memories of the WWII when explaining what's behind the scenes of the "touristic sightseeing" places. Jose told us things and showed us histories in a very interactive way, and I really appreciate his efforts and kindness! It's definitely worth the time (and heat) taking the tour, don't skip it!

I was a little late, but my guide was communicating with me the entire time to make sure I joined the group. Once I did, I learned so much about the history of old Manila and José Rizal. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to learn more about the history of the Philippines.

I highly recommend this tour! In 3 hours, you get an immersive experience, walking around Intramuros, learning about the history of Manila and the multicultural influences on its heritage. The tour was informative and interesting. Anne is a superb guide. I mentioned how I wanted to try taho and balut on my last day in the Philippines and she provided them on my tour. Great service and communication!
