Our Intramuros tour begins at the iconic Manila Cathedral, where our knowledgeable and friendly guide will greet you. From there, we’ll embark by foot on an exploration of Intramuros, taking you through its cobblestone streets and picturesque corners.

One of the highlights of the Intramuros tour is a visit to the renowned St. Agustin Church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the oldest church in the country. Marvel at the intricate details of its architecture and learn about the significant role it played in shaping the history of Manila.

We’ll also explore the enchanting Puerta Real Gardens, where you’ll be taken to a different era through its well-preserved Spanish architecture and tranquil gardens. Take a leisurely stroll through this picturesque setting and soak up the ambiance that harkens back to a bygone era.

Our tour continues to Casa Manila, a beautifully restored colonial house that offers a glimpse into the opulent lifestyle of the past. 

The final stop of the Intramuros tour is the St. Agustin Church, a symbol of religious devotion and a testament to the resilience of the Filipino people. Be aware of this historic landmark as you listen to captivating stories and anecdotes from our guide.

It was a very nice tour, we loved how Nina explained everything. The only downside was that the weather was super hot. Maybe it would be better in the evening. Thanks Nina :-)
