Carlos is the most entertaining tour guide and does a great job explaining the history of Intramuros and Manila. The tour is about 3 hours, not too much walking with seats at most of the stops. People of all ages and fitness levels can handle this tour quite easily. Carlos is the best in the business and very popular, which... More

I wish history class was taught like Carlos Celdran does this tour - fun, theatrical and always making links to today's life in Manila. I really recommend doing this tour if you are in town! It's a good way of learning about the history of the country/Manila and laughing throughout! I guess the only downside was that there were a... More

Walk This Way with Carlos today. I can't believe he can keep it up forever. Get the rapid history of Manila in his irreverent, entertaining, unique style. And open yourself to some bit of new perspective regarding events that you think you already know. You may not be sure who should be offended, but if you think that it's you,... More

I brought my husband and my parents to Carlos' walking tour. His blog says that this is performance art in the guise of a walking tour so my Dad, who is turning 85 this year, handled the short walks pretty well. That was our main concern. So yes, senior citizen members of your family can definitely take this tour. Plus... More

Walk This Way is a famous tour that combined history, theatrical drama and attraction together in the Walled City of Intramuros. Carlo Celdran, the tour guide, did great job in making it a very informative and fun trip. He's very talented in mimicking historic figures and that really makes this tour a must see itself when you stop by the... More

If you book this tour, please make sure that Carlos is leading your group! I was totally entertained by his informative and engaging way of presenting Philippine history. Carlos has a great sense of humor and I never thought that I would have so much fun learning history. Fantastic way to spend a few hours.

A must for all visitors to Manila. Smartly put together, the tour is most Informative and entertaining; I didn't want it to end. Don't be discouraged by the many people taking part in the tour. They are there because of Carlos. He had time for everyone, and was humble when I thanked him for the great presentation. Carlos is a... More

After having been to Manila countless times, I think of it quite differently after having Walked This Way. An engaging tour that sheds a lot of light on Manila's very interesting history, apparently both to tourists and some Filipinos, alike. Carlos is passionate, entertaining and knowledgeable. The tour its self is well organised with a few little extras thrown in;... More

This is more a street performance than a tour. Carlos Celdran related Philippine history with humor and insight, and brings together his participants with local pedi-cabs and dessert. I had been through the dioramas at the Ayala museum (also recommended), but Mr. Celdran makes the history much more understandable and memorable. Bravo!

An amazing story teller that is both informative, has a point of view, tells the untold and keeps you entertained for a whole afternoon! No better way to experience a culture and visit a historical site than experiencing it. Kids loved it and will never forget the narrative and main facts. And it's beautiful to see how an artist puts... More
