How long will the tour take?

The Manila History Walk usually takes around 3 – 4 hours to complete. This assumes that we will walk most of the way. The tour will incorporate a brief commute from Fort Santiago to Luneta or Escolta.

 

We want to take this tour, but we’re not really great with walking…

Not to worry! We can incorporate more commuting between destinations, but you need to assume a fair amount of walking at any rate. If you want, we can rent a kalesa, e-trike, or van for you, the cost of which will be added to your total tour fee. Prices of these rentals are available upon request.

We require a minimum number of 3 participants per tour. For 1 – 2 participants, you will pay the equivalent of 3 people, or Php 3,600.
