If there's one thing you cannot miss on a trip to Manila it Carlos Celdron's 'Walk this Way'. Better than West End Theatre - informative, entertaining and downright hilarious!

Carlos is a Filipino you want to meet with. The tour is great, outrageous, educative... well, it's not just a tour, it's a tour and so many things... And there is a lot to discover in Intramuros, Carlos will do just that with you. Go see him while he is out of jail (you will understand eventually).

A delightfully entertaining and thought provoking tour. Not a lot of walking in this tour but a lot of listening, thinking and assessing. Very informative and has Carlo's slant on the history of Manila and the Philippines. This tour is a must for anyone visiting Manila and it is wonderful to spend time in Intramuros and imagine its splendor. I... More

Definitely entertaining and informative. I had a lot of introspective moments and had a quick crash course and review of my history lessons. Being a Filipina and a local (well, more of a greater Metro Manila resident), I do need a refresher on why and how we have our Manila in this way. Keep an open mind when joining this... More

My sister in law arranged this tour for a group of us so going in I had no idea of what to expect on this "walking tour". I put that in quotations because it's really more of history /politics lesson and performance than a tour. The actual sites (San Augustin, Fort Santiago, a bomb shelter) on the tour are just...

Carlos Celdran beckons to his followers to "Walk this way..." He entices, he bellows, he persuades. It is all in part due to his theatrical expertise that he is able to do this in a seamless manner, one which enthralls and captivates, at least the majority of the group that was on my tour on July 3rd, 2015. However, one... More

Carlos does a pretty good job of presenting his opinion of Philippine history and culture and he has some interesting things to say. Expect a large group and to have difficulty hearing sometimes. Don't expect a comprehensive tour of Intramuros. The tour is mostly confined to Fort Santiago followed by pedicab or horse carriage ride to briefly see San Agustin... More

Before you fork over your 1100PHP (24USD), make sure you have an absolute open mind. If you do, sign up, show up, and delight in the stories tour guide Carlos Celdran will share about some popular names in history. Prepare for a brisk walk, entertaining stories, some costume changes, sitting on benches, stones, or grass, calesa (horse-drawn carriage) rides, a... More

I was in Manila at the end of may, 2015. As a specialist in interpersonal communication, I was not expecting Carlos's performance. Once he started, I stopped being a tourist and went into Professional mode which meant that I became much more observant and "critical". He is a great actor and has a very well structured and "entertaining" show which... More
