The entrance fee is 1,100 peso per person (adult admission) and considering the volume of people (there must have been nearly 90 on our tour), it seemed a little over priced. I should point out that it's only over priced in comparison to other tours on offer in manila. The historical basis for the tour was interesting and informative, but... More

I love to take a walking/riding/bus tour when I first get to a city. Without doubt, Carlos' tour has been the best I've experienced. His ability to take 400 years of history, and turn it into a performance of over 2 1/2 hours is amazing. He doesn't sprout the government line, but rather tells the history, warts and all. Should...

I'm from the Philippines and I love how Carlos does his performance tours. It brings new life out of the usually boring history lessons. The tour is around 2 1/2 hours but you won't feel the need to check your watches. He is that good. Please bring water, tissues, extra shirt and fans cause the tour is going to be... More

This tour is wonderful. Very informative and entertaining, and well worth the time and cost. This is a good activity for your balikbayans and foreigner-friends.

I feel more like writing a theatre review that a review of a walking tour... What can I say... utterly entertaining, informative and insightful. Carlos gives a brilliantly written, emotional, funny, partisan performance - a love letter to Manila. It made us 3 actors from England whoop and cheer. Every city deserves a Carlos Celdran.

Carlo's Walk This Way tour was excellent, well worth the time and cost. Very entertaining, the tour was directed at both Filipinos and foreign tourists. How is this tour offensive to some? Carlos made some points about the various foreign powers that have shaped Philippine history and drew similarities with current events, such as likening the Spanish pushing Catholicism and... More

Hands down the best walking tour I have ever been on in my life. Perhaps the best tour. Because normally I fall asleep during tours. Like to no fault of the guide, I just can't stay up, but Carlos is a first class entertainer and I remember so much that he taught us. A complete Manila experience with snacks and... More

Let me start off by saying that Carlos Celdran is truly a passionate man. I also learned a real lot from his tour, albeit being too harsh with his words most of the time, it kind of left me seeing things in a negative way. However, for the price of a little over P1000, I thought we were going to... More

Carlos Celdran's Intramuros tour is brilliant and funny. Theatrical but informative. One must have an open mind when doing this tour. Enjoyed every bit of it.
