Intramuros and Binondo Private Tour


Know the history of Manila and imagine how it looked like before WW2. Let's visit two old and historical districts of Manila, they used to be very famous and important in our economy but war never leave good memories that even a very small city took time to recover and that is still a question if the city already recovered and moved on. We are starting the tour in Intramuros the old walled city, very famous during Manila-Acapulco Galleon Trade then continue to Binondo, Manila's China Town perfect timing for lunch as we walk in the street and try favorite food of Chinese that Filipinos loves to dig in too. Along the way see some of the buildings that survived the war. Your eyes will be filled with too much actions going on in the streets of Binondo.

The tour is best for people that are open in trying local food. Old and new restaurants are all safe and tested by many tourists. Please advise me for any food restrictions.

If not open in trying food there's another option and walking tour is still great :)

Itinerary

Stops:

*Fort Santiago (Old military fort inside Intramuros)
