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!

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.

We learned a lot of Philippine history in this four hour tour. Mostly it was a walking tour, but included a short horse cart ride around the circumference of the walls. In addition to visits to the Jose Rizal Museum and the Cathedral, we also visited an ice cream truck. This was a most welcome respite on a hot day. Our guide was most helpful and even helped us arrange a taxi ride back to the hotel.

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!

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 really recommend having a tour with Don't Skip Manila. There is so much to learn and discover. I am a Filipino living in Metro Manila, and I can say that Intramuros is one of the underappreciated tourist spots. And because of DSM tours, I learned to love Intramuros and the history behind them. I can also recommend this to tourism students. Thank you DSM Tours❤

We had a great few hours touring intramuros with Anne! She was an excellent guide - clearly incredibly passionate about her country and that enthusiasm was infectious for a tourist - we learnt a lot about the history of the Philippines - Anne was also very frank and informative when discussing current politics and demographics of the country. She adapted to the rainy weather and went over and above to ensure we had a good time - including waiting around to ensure we got grabs! A truly wonderful experience - couldn’t recommend this tour highly enough.
