This exciting Super Saver tour begins with a hotel pickup in Manila. Then, it’s a 1-hour drive to the scenic city of Tagaytay, a popular holiday town south of Manila on the Philippine island Luzon. Tagaytay sits on a ridge above Taal Volcano Island, an active volcano surrounded by Taal Lake. Upon arrival, see the Lake while exploring the People's Park in the Sky, also called People's Park. This historic urban park was converted from an incomplete mansion known as the Palace in the Sky, the home of former President Ferdinand Marcos.

Break for lunch at a local restaurant to sample some traditional Filipino cuisine as well as popular regional dishes, then hit the road back to Manila for the remainder of the day.

In Manila, visit the Manila American Cemetery and Memorial, which contains the largest number of graves of US military from World War II — a total of 17,201 souls, most of whom lost their lives in operations in New Guinea and the Philippines. Then experience the hustle of the City of Makati, the Philippines’ financial center, and travel along busy Roxas Boulevard, a popular waterfront promenade.

Also, visit Rizal Park, a historical urban park; San Agustin Museum, adjacent to the landmark church and monastery; and Fort Santiago, a citadel first built by Spanish conquistador Miguel López de Legazpi for the then-newly established city of Manila — a key feature of the famous Walled City of Manila, referred to as Intramuros.

This full-day tour ends with a hotel drop-off.

We were extremely disappointed as we were not taken to see the majority of the key sights outlined for the afternoon program in the intramurros, they simply drove us around, told us everything was closed (even though when we checked on the internet afterwards everything was open) and took us back to the hotel early. When we wrote to them by email regarding this there was no response. Deeply disappointing.

We enjoyed our trip for the sheer beauty of the volcano and its surroundings. The views from the People's Park were fantastic although at times it was a bit hazy. The venue of the lunch was ideal for viewing the volcano and the lake. A perfect point for taking photos. Although the lunch was included in the price, the guide made us pay tips to the waiters. The guide was very knowledgeable and patient and had a good sense of humour. He went out of the way to show us an aerial view of the city of Manila from the roof top of the Bay leaf hotel . A very interesting trip overall.

This was an excellent tour combining three important locations into one day. The guide and the driver were pleasant, knowledgeable, and very helpful. I have some difficulty walking and climbing stairs. Both the driver and the guide went out of their way to be certain I had assistance and remained safe. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and appreciated the attention to detail. I recommend this tour highly.

if in Manila the tour is a must to see the sights of Manila and the Taal Volcano. The guide was good and gave us enough time for all the components of the visit. Lunch was ok. The van was comfortable. I found the fellow passengers made the day even better: two from Melbourne and four from San Francisco. Highly recommend it.

The tour was very enjoyable. Our guide was excellent with a wealth of knowledge on the area and its history. Our driver also did an excellent job keeping us all comfortable. Even though I booked this excursion the evening before, the tour company scheduled to pick us up at our hotel in Quezon City. Not being sure we would be able to get a pickup arranged we took a taxi to the designated hotel downtown, however, I received an email the morning of the tour about picking us up. So, the pickup and dropoff is a great benefit of the tour. Lunch in Tagaytay was delicious and plentiful. Do plan on a very full day 8 am to 7 pm if it is busy on the streets or on the weekend in Tagaytay. All in all, I highly recommend this tour.

We loved this tour! We started with a trip to Tagaytay which was very scenic and offered us a glimpse into the lives the of locals. We arrived at the lunch destination which gave us a breath-taking view of the Taal volcano. Lunch was also very delicious and seemed to be very representative of the local cuisine. We were dropped off at our hotel later than we expected, but this was primarily due to the heavy traffic. There were some locations that we would like to have stayed at longer, but we feel that we were still able to hit all of the major highlights we wanted to see in Manila through this tour option. Our tour guide was also very knowledgeable and accommodating to us as well as others on the tour with us.

We have badluck. The weather did not help. Practically we did not see the volcano, impossible with the fog and rain. The city tour wasnot as expected. We assume that the guide will go with you to the site and explain the history or the impressions of whatwe are visiting. He stayed in the car and waited for us to walk around the place we were visiting.

This was advertised as a day trip. The morning was ok, went to Tagaytay but was expecting to see more. We wanted to buy some T shirts but we were rushed through and did not see any gift/craft shops, plus there was another viewing point I was expecting to be taken to as well.. Lunch was supposed to be at a restaurant to experience Filipino food, and music entertainment, however, we were taken to Max Fast Food Outlet. Disappointing. Maybe because there was only 2 of us. After lunch we were to spend the afternoon touring Fort Santiago, Intromurass and surrounds. Because there were 3 extra guests added to the tour, we spent 2 hours wasted driving around picking them up from their hotels and as a consequence we were extrremely rushed through the rest of the day. We will not bother with organised tours in the future, was disappointed with the day. However, the driver and guide were most helpful and informative.

Despite only having a very small group, the tour guide was not very descriptive with explanations. Besides, the tour could have been better if it included stopping at interesting places along the way to Tagatay, such as some of the townships.
