I recently had the pleasure of seeing Carlos Celdran's "Walk This Way". A simple review here won't do this unique experience justice. One one level, the host/MC/tour guide of the afternoon is the vivacious, irreverent, charming, sympathetic (and sly) Carlos Celdran tossing out trivia about the complicated history of Manila while walking through some important historical landmarks. Imagine a modern... More

it's a great show, and the level of knowledge of carlos is top notch. i can see how P1100 might not be expensive for balikbayans and tourists. that said, it is pricey for local travelers. and he gets >50 attendees on a regular basis, perhaps he can offer price off days exclusive to the hoi polloi. i suppose that's what...

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
