Tourist Driver Manila (TDM) are tour guides specialising in private trips in and to the north of Manila in Luzon, covering the rice terraces, hanging coffins, the UNESCO world heritage city of Vigan - and much more. Cebu and Bohol itineraries have now been added too.

Tours can be fully customised and the guides have a network of local contacts at the main attractions who provide further information. Requests for stops enroute are accommodated without problem as are diversions to engage with local people and to understand local culture.

We took a 7 day tour covering the main sites and sights of northern Luzon from Manila all the way to the top of the Philippines at Pagudpud. This was followed by the countryside tour in Bohol which included the Chocolate Hills and then a 6 night itinerary around Cebu.

The big difference between TDM and other tour companies in the Philippines is that TDM staff really understand that many visitors don't just want a driver to take them to the standard tourist sites. They want a flexible guide who can help them to understand their country and the TDM staff are proud to do this.

I was a bit apprehensive at first. For me the issue of security and safety comes first. From communication to personally meeting staff I can honestly say my husband and I we were both very impressed with our dealings with TDM. The seamless process.
We have missed our connecting flight due to weather condition, but that did not affect the availability of staff at such short notice. I was told by Sir Arnold "just keep me updated with the new flight and we'll see you there". Maraming salamat po ulit! You made our day.
We would like to thank everyone from Cloue to Ed (who picked us up from the airport), Sir Arnold who picked us up from Bataan to the airport. My husband will see you in a months time for another pick up.
I would rate this company 5 stars plus 1 because it's totally beyond our expectations. I would highly recommend this company TDM to everyone here in Australia and the Philippines who wants a fuzz free experience.

Myself, my wife and 2 children had a 4 day tour with our driver Robert in December 2023.

The tour took us from Manila, to Baguio, Vigan, Bananue and then back to Manila.

Robert was absolutely excellent, always making us as comfortable as he could, always positive and he has a very good sense of humour. He was also very informative and gave us a lot of info on the locations that we visited, the tour really was our highlight of our time in the Philippines and I highly recommend him.

Robert can be contacted on WhatsApp on the following number:
+63 906 595 6065

Thanks again Mr Robert!

This was an amazing experience with our team Cloue and Anthony. We drove from Makati to Villa Escudero and saw as much as we could from the car. The team was very accommodating in stopping for refreshments per request and it was fun getting to know them. I feel like I can always call on them when we come back.

The tour itself was amazing. The grounds were amazing. The waterfall restaurant, the bamboo rafting, the show and museum was the perfect experience for our brief stay. I feel like I got the memories I was hoping for on our short visit. I highly recommend booking this tour. I give our team a A+!

Lovely car and really comfortable over some challenging roads. Our driver Anthony was excellent - very polite and attentive and good company. Without being asked between meetings would trace out the voyage to the next meeting. Would thoroughly recommend Arnold and his team.

For more than 1 year I have had the pleasure of using their services whenever I am on business in Manila. I am collected, dropped off at the airport/hotel. Very reliable, on time, cost effective, safe and friendly! Would highly recommend.

One doesn't need to look any further for an accommodating company that offers professionalism, knowledge, prompt timeframes & safe driving skills.

Arnold, your communication - always prompt, courteous & accommodating - always ready to assist. Thank You

Anthony, I can’t praise your skilled driving ability, flexibility, communication, kindness and professionalism enough - not to mention patience with my change of plan or location at times. I really have appreciated this. Thank You

Joey, your imparting of information was awesome. You made each stop interesting, gave an insight into the history of the location and kept it flowing. Thank You

Ding, thank you for safely getting from point A to point B in the shortest possible time.

I am indeed grateful that Tourist Driver Manila & their staff has allowed me the privilege and delivery of the professional service they offer. They made it “easy” – no hassles. Thank You from the bottom of my heart..

Planning independent travel in the Philippines is not easy as most of the tourism there is focused to prescribed packages which lack flexibility and imagination. This usually means that other operators offer very similar packages and timings, ensuring you will be visiting crowded sights. I tried a large number of companies and independent guides without success. Arnold was the only one who was willing to help and customise his services according to my goals. Arnold also answered mis questions and helped me with some of the preparations/logistics – something that nobody else who I contacted did. For that, I am extremely grateful and pleased with his company services. Moreover, Arnold turned to be a gentleman who was a pleasure to be with and we ended up hanging out together and having fun in the last day of my trip. I recommend his services.
