Such an amazing experience! I did the Half Day Tour through Intramuros - my guide was Cedhie! I ended up being the only person in my time slot, so the tour was private one-on-one! Cedhie is an incredible guide. He was knowledgeable of all the history and sites, and also made me feel like a part of the conversation. It felt like being shown around the city by a new friend. The bikes are comfortable and I felt safe being guided through the streets, even when we had to cross in traffic. The stops cover all the main sites in Intramuros, and because you are on bike, you can cover way more ground in the time than on foot. At the end of the tour they even gave me a cool towel to refresh myself, and a scoop of the most delicious coconut ice cream! If you’re traveling alone or in a group, highly recommend this experience. Ask for Cedhie!

I have participated in biking tours around the world…it is a great way to do much in a short period of time. This tour throughout Manila was top notch! Our guide, Johnathan was attentive, educational and allowed everyone to feel special…answering questions as a group and personally. The 2.5 hours was easy riding with several stops that was packed with content….sad, happy, historical and all mixed with the every day life of the locals. Plan to do this one….the value is much greater than the investment!

Did the bike tour after a very stressful morning in Metro Manila. Intramuros is compared to other parts of Metro Manila a little quieter and riding a bike is a great way to get around. The concept of the bamboo bikes is great to start out with. The tour takes around three hours and involves 6 different stops along the way. My guide spoke really good english and gave me a lot of information about the history of the Philippines. I would recommend the tour for anyone on the first day of the trip to the Philippines and to escape the madness of Metro Manila traffic.

Did this tour as a family of three, including a 15 year old daughter. We had a great time and the tour was interesting and fun. The lead guide, Russell, was fantastic; he was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, articulate and obviously loves his job. The tour was well organised and well paced. The bamboo bikes were unique and comfortable to ride, although there was not much actual riding due to relatively short sections between the points of interest where we stopped. Still, the writing was fun and easy on the flat, narrow streets of the old Intramuros town. A nice surprise was the complimentary ice cream at the end of the tour. An enjoyable way to spend the morning in Manila.

I visited Bambike Eco Tour on the 18th with a friend and we thought it was a great way to see Intramuros. Our guide was Russell and he was so helpful in helping us pick bikes, giving lots of interesting history about Intramuros and keeping us all safe on the tour. We had plenty of time to see everything as well as stop for photos, and there were some really nice touches such as cold towels and ice cream at the end!

I’d definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a nice way to spend half a day exploring.

We had a 1/2 day in MNL before getting on an international flight. This was the perfect activity to get out and explore a historic corner of the city, get a little exercise and learn about the Spanish and American engagement in the Philippines. The history and spirit of the Filipino people shown through with our guides engaging and knowledgeable overview. Better for adults and older kids as there is a lot of history shared. Short 5 minute rides between sights. Highly recommended.

The Booking process is simple, the staff are really friendly and helpful. The guide Jojo was knowledgeable and funny too. I would highly recommend this tour and it is not physically hard at all, even the "massage" on the large cobbles was fun.

This bike tour was the ice on the cake on my day in Manila! I did the morning tour, it was quite hot & humid but riding the bike gave us a little breeze. Intramuros is a lovely area of the capitol, a must-see when you're there. Our tour guide, Russell was really professional, he provided a brief review of the history of Manila and the Philippines as we rode through Intramuros. His English is good and understandable, also, he was a super friendly and lovely tour guide. I am really happy to be able to join this tour and see all these historical places in Manila!

If you are looking for a really great way to visit the City I think this îs the best. It's really safe s-o you don't have to worry about it. It îs one guide and at least a other person Who stop the trafic for us to cross the street. You also receive a really nice bottle of watter. Don't miss this city tour if you are around!
