What you can expect

Spend half a day exploring Manila, the capital of the Philippines, on a comprehensive private tour of the city center and several of its districts. Begin in Makati, the financial district, and continue to Fort Santiago and finally to Quiapo, the heart of Manila, with a knowledgeable guide.

Get picked up from your Manila hotel and embark on a private tour of the bustling metropolis. Begin in Makati, the financial district, and make a brief stop at Rizal Park, named for national hero Dr. Jose Rizal. Explore the walled city of Intramuros, walk the cobbled streets to San Agustin Church—the country's oldest stone church and home to numerous artifacts—and then visit Casa Manila, a 19th-century reproduction blending Asian and European design with antique Philippine furniture.

Next, visit Fort Santiago, which served as Manila's main line of defense against seafaring invaders. Listen as your guide describes the many tragedies that have occurred here. Finally, arrive in Quiapo, Manila's central district and the heart of the city. Explore the market, Quiapo Church—home to the Black Nazarene—and the bazaars. Finally, check out the Chinese Cemetery, featuring home-sized mausoleums fusing Christianity with eastern religions. Finally, get dropped off back at your hotel.
