Manila Old & New City Tour
Duration: 4 Hours
Revisit Philippine history with a glimpse of Manila’s past and present. This fully guided sightseeing tour of Manila starts right in the heart of the country’s financial center, the City of Makati. Stops include Nielson’s Tower along Ayala Boulevard, Forbes Park (an exclusive residential enclave fittingly dubbed as “Millionaire’s Row”) and the American Cemetery and Memorial.
Continue to the old City of Manila via the scenic Roxas Boulevard passing through Luneta (also called Rizal Park) on your way to the “walled city” of Intramuros. Inside the city fortress are ancient walls, church ruins and other relics of the Spanish Conquistadors era.
Then travel through the cobblestone streets to San Agustin Church, the oldest stone church in the country. End at Fort Santiago, a Spanish fortress where Dr. Jose Rizal, the country’s national hero, spent his last days in incarceration and wrote his famous “My Last Farewell.”
