    Great way to spend a morning, enjoying the beautiful Intramuros.
    This is a perfect tour to gain an understanding of the history of Manila and The Philippines. Fantastic tour guide, great music, stories, a kalesa trip around the walled city, and visits to Fort Santiago, Manila Cathedral, St Augustins Church and the Museum are all included. Thank you Don't Skip Manila!

    Highly recommend!
    We joined the walking tour of intramuros and we loved it! I learned things that I didn’t even know growing up Filipino. It was my husband’s first time seeing Intramuros and he learned the history of how Manila came to be. It was so informative, easy to take in and Ann our tour guide gave us a lot information. Even information that I think are not in text books. Our tour included a Kalesa ride along the walled city. Even a cone of sorbetes! It’s 3 hours long but easy walk. And the Kalesa ride was around 30 mins long. We enjoyed it and high recommend

    We were 13 of us and we took a guide at the entrance. The lawn was beautiful. The ruins of old manila was worth seeing. Our guide explained to us how people used to live in a walled city centuries ago. it was a historical walking tour Worth seeing...

    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.

    Highly recommend this tour!
    We picked this tour out of all the Manila tours and it did not disappoint. Andre was a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Great tour and very educational. Being a US born Filipino, I still learned things I didn’t know as it makes more sense when you actually see the sites on this tour. My wife and 2 daughters (first time in the Philippines) also really enjoyed it. Definitely recommend it!

    Don't skip Manila! Recommended
    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 must experience!
    We had Andre as our tour guide. He was eloquent, humorous, patient and knowledgeable! Yes, we are glad we did not skip Manila and the Intramuros tour. My knowledge of Philippine history has been refreshed. My kids and their loved ones, having been born and raised in the US were appreciative if the historical information this tour allowed. Again, kudos to Andre who made it even more fascinating.

    Don't skip Andrei
    Any tour is about the place and the guide. Andrei was brilliant, funny, personable and knowledgeable. What a great way to get to know about the city Manila and how it effected the history of the country. Thanks for making it such a highlight of our trip.

    Great Experience with both educative info and fun!
    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!

    Facinating!
    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.

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.

A beautiful place indeed. Feel as though you are in Spain. Old world charm. Feel like going there repeatedly. The church over there monumental. Rizel park is worth going to.

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.

Great locations, really thorough telling of Phillipines history. Guide had a good sense of humour but was also able to reflect on the tragedies. Sometimes guides sound like they are reading from a script. Not this one, he is very knowledgeable. Also ice cream was a nice touch. Great way to cool off.

My husband and I did this tour and it’s obviously a beautiful place full of a rich and interesting history. If you’re worried about it being a walking tour, I was 7 months pregnant so anyone else should be fine. Other than the actual sites of the tour, I would recommend it because of our tour guide, Andrei. He was so knowledgeable, funny, accommodating and told everything in such a way history couldn’t possibly be a bore. He was amazing. My favourite part was walking through Fort Santiago to old Spanish tunes, really sets the scene. Overall, a great way to see and learn about the old city.
