Still full from your tasty dinner, settle in for an incredible performance of folk dances from around the Philippines, including the well-known singkil, the mesmerizing tinikling and the amazing pandanggo sa ilaw, each of which is performed by a troupe of elegantly-costumed men and women. The various dances are meant to represent the various cultures of the country, covering both the Spanish-influenced movements of the northern mountain tribes and the animated tribal movements of the Muslim south.

Fantastic!

What a fun evening, started with my amazing tour guide Malou, she was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Had a fantastic Filipino meal, options great and oh so yummy. Show was great, musicians & dancers very professional; costumes colorful. Prior to show, a trio performed, musically & vocals, extremely good. I came away with a full stomach, and enriched with the performances; oh what a night.

This show was better many years ago when I first saw it. Their should be a podium so also persons in the back can see the dances properly. Er should be a narrative which dances are from which region.

Dinner and Cultural Dance Show
Normita_M
, Jul 2018
We all enjoyed this tour. The tourist guide and driver are very professional and on time. There are quite a selection of food but they’re not very tasty. I think there was a sign that we will have to pay extra for the leftovers on our plate and I tried to diligently finish it even though I didn’t like it.

There was a good selection of food at the buffet. The cultural dance was done well and the dancers were well rehearsed. The music was performed on traditional instruments, which was a different type of sound but was found to be interesting. Highly recommend for visitors that are not familiar with Filipino culture to attend.

The dinner and show was excellent. My kids and niece enjoyed learning more about their heritage. Carmen our tour guide and Ariel our driver were very hospitable as well. Carmen gave an overview of the places we passed and the history. She was awesome. Thank you very much.

The dances and costumes superbly demonstrated the diversity of Filipino culture. Truly very nice! We liked the bamboo dances the best for the rhythms and complexity. The audience/diners that night were all on our feet applauding most of the routines. And the musicians? They were fantastic! Not only were they superior on their stringed instruments, but when they moved to the native and innovative! percussion instruments, we were blown away. The dinner buffet, though offering fewer selections that other larger restaurants', was nevertheless delicious and sufficient for our palates. The porchetta with the crispiest skin ever was exceptional!

Don't book this tour. Go to the Barbara restaurant at 6-7pm yourself. It will be 1/4 the price and the EXACT SAME dinner/activities. The food is way too salty, but the performance was good!

The evening began with delicious food in a spanish style resturant, Barbaras. The atmosphere was delightful and the food delicious. Every need was met with our waiters. Then the show began and we enjoyed a variety of performances from the spanish period to classical Philippines with almost Balanese type costuming, to gamalan and bamboo pole dancing. Initially we began with flamenco guitars and cello. Loved this evening totally. Lots of tourists there but it did not matter. Went out into the courtyard and took some beautiful photos.

This made for a nice first tour of the Philippines for us. The Driver was friendly and the Guide was very informative. Before heading to the dinner/show, they took us to a couple of noteworthy spots in Manila, including to a stunning rooftop view of the city which was amazing. The dinner was good and the show as very enjoyable. The lead/MC was a fabulous and memorable entertainer. I'm still talking about him three days after returning home to the U.S. If there was any negatives, the layout of the restaurant had some obstructed views. The attendees who sat along the sides and in the back frequently had their views blocked. Otherwise, I would recommend this tour/show.

The cultural dance show is worth visiting, colorful and well prepared though, the image photo on the internet is not identical with Barbara's restaurant. I would rate the prepared Dinner Buffet rather average, also once I saw the low price which I compared with our price asked from the organizer. The pick-up from the Hotel and drop-off was also very fine.

the experience was great but once again and this is typical for the hilippines I paid to much because I am a westener. My philippino bf got working and investigated if we would have booked locally through the pinoi connections we would have paid far less but that is the philipines all over.
