Well, what can I say about tops. The taxis wanted an exhorbitant rate to go down when i was up there (and complained about the fuel being used to get UP there) so you cant win. I dropped in at the Italian cafe near tops La Tegola, nice deck and view worth dropping into. Its on the left as you... More

Yes, they charge now Php 100 entry, but it is worth it. When i visited it was clean. The food stalls are small and have limited offers, but compared to last time years ago the place has improved.

Tops is literally the Top Most Outlook for Cebu,,, and it is majestic at sunset and evening,, Just to relax and perhaps have a snack,,but well worth the 30 min ride by taxi,, (go all the way,,do not stop at local eateries on the way up) Enjoy!

The drive itself going to the location is enjoyable but watch out for bikers. There are so many curves and steep climb that it is advisable to be wary at all times. For those people that love to have a beer with a view, this is the place to be. But you need to go a little bit later in... More

The drive up to Tops is long but with the right company, it is actually enjoyable. You get a really nice view of Cebu up there and it gets real cold from late afternoon. It's a good place to have a good bonding session with your friends. I however wish there are more and better food options available.

Getting there is a challenge. It is about 20 minutes from the Cebu City proper and you need a 4WD vehicle as the ascend is really challenging. But once you get there, the view of Cebu City is breathtaking. It's best to go late afternoon just as the sun is about to set. It's a little cold so bring a... More

Although there isn't much to see and do around the area, you'll get to focus on enjoying the view of Metro Cebu from here. My friends and I definitely enjoyed the view here, and we also get to enjoy the cold air even if it was summer. It's like tagaytay, but more enjoyable because there were only a few people... More

It's nice to go up to TOPS at night. From there you will see the view of the city lights. You will pay an entrance fee for the maintenance of the place. The road going up is not so well lighted; there is a steep incline towards the top. There is a Bar that serves snacks, barbecue pork/chicken, and drinks.... More
