At first I thought the tour was a bit pricey for Manila, but after experiencing it, I must say that it is UNDERpriced!!! The guide is fantastic and integrates his audience into his tour. So many great experiences - horse buggy rides, halo halo dessert tasting, Rizal museum, and so much interesting information about the history of the city. I... More

I decided to sign up for Carlos Celdran's tour based on a friend's recommendation but was a bit apprehensive if it would be sufficiently interesting for our teens. Turned out to be a fun afternoon that was enjoyed by everyone! Carlos has an interesting style that makes the tour not only informative but also keeps everyone engaged and entertained! Between...

We had free halo-halo, free calesa ride but best of all, took home lots of insights about Philippine history. It's like this tour lifted a veil and showed the backstory of the Philippine history. Definitely, DEFINITELY a MUST-TRY when you visit Manila. That three-hour tour was awesome! If you're planning your itinerary in Philippines, this is one reason you should... More

Carlos Celdran's "Walk this Way" tour of Intramuros is an excellent way to get an interesting and fun history lesson on old Manila. It's a must-do for foreign visitors (who will see Manila and the Philippines in a new light) as well as locals (who will leave with a new perspective on the history of Manila and the country).

Before I went, haven't had done all the research about the tour. Although it seemed weird to me at the beginning (didn't expected a historical tour with humor), I enjoy it all. Not to give details because trust me, you should check it out for yourself. The tour was a very amazing experience that helped me to understand the Filipino... More

I cannot say enough good things about this walking tour, which I've now experienced twice. Informative, entertaining, and well worth the time and money. It was a performance from start to end, the goal of which is to help you understand what Intramuros (and Filipinos) is all about.

The guy conducting the tour had a strange humor. Probably it is a love or hate it thing. I couldn't really get warm with it first. But I have to admit that he included a lot of information – that otherwise I wouldn't have gotten anywhere – in his theater performance on the street. It seems to be a good... More

The Walk This Way tour begins with an introduction of the history of the Philippines and centers in Fort Santiago. It's unusual but a good thing that there are more Filipinos than foreigners in the tour. It might mean more Filipinos would want to learn more about the past told in a theatrical manner. Starting from pre-Spanish colonial times up... More
