Bambike Ecotours Intramuros is an exciting and educational ecotourism activity in the heart of Manila's old walled city of Intramuros. Guests will be riding through the streets on bamboo bikes that have been handmade by Gawad Kalinga villagers here in the Philippines. Tourists will be led around the area, getting to cover more ground than if on a walking tour and having a more interesting experience than if going around on a calesa.This ecotour will both teach visitors about Philippine history and make them feel like kids again.

The best way to discover the glory of the pearl of the orient. Bryan and his team were simply world class in how they showed me both the past and present beauties of the old city. I recommend this trip without reservation to anyone who wants a city tour to remember.

The departures are from a wonderful place (Casa Manila) where they have de base. The people are very kind and you can learn a lot about the history of Manila and Philippines with the guide in a funny and healthy way. Besides they make a social labour for people in the village 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

I know very little about Manila or this history of the Philippines. This was a great "crash course". Our guide Russell was fantastic. Tour was about 3 hours long.

I can't say enough good things about this tour! I'm a 20-something Filipino-American who doesn't know too much about Filipino history and hasn't seen much of Manila (other than SM malls and distant relatives' houses), so this tour was the perfect crash course in history as well as a great way to see a beautiful part of the city.

We really enjoyed our bike tour of Intramuros. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly! We had an amazing time. Although the streets of Manila are very busy, we felt very safe. Would've enjoyed more time riding the bikes! We made frequent stops to various historical sites. But the stops are well worth it! Would definitely recommend if you are... More

We had a fantastic time on our tour! We are 5 twenty-somethings looking to learn a little more about Filipino history and this tour was an excellent overview of old Manila. Our tour guide was energetic, knowledgeable, and had a great sense of humor. He even taught us a little Tagalog to use on the rest of our trip. I... More

First off our tour guide was AMAZING - he was extremely welcoming, funny and informative. The bambike company is very forward thinking and progressive, promoting jobs and sustainability. Manila is so rich in history and this tour gives insight into the colonization of the Philippines. Perfect for everyone!

The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The bamboo bike was lightweight and very easy to pedal. All the main locations were visited and their histories explained. Manila is hot even in the winter, so expect a lot of sweating. However, the travel pace is slow and not tiring. I enjoyed the trip very much.

A much more pleasant way to see this fascinating part of Manila and its history than by a car or bus by a small innovative company making a difference.

Ian was a great guide with lots of knowledge to share. It was a great tour just stepping foot into the Philippines, great if you're there for a quick stop and want to know the history. I learned a lot from a former preschool teacher and had fun with friends. There's a great local restaurant down the street when you... More
