Some geologists theorize that Corregidor was once part of a huge volcano that erupted on one side and gradually eroded to become partly invisible beneath the sea. It is called "The Rock" because it served as the major bastion of Philippine's Allies during World War II. « less

the ocean front is full of trash. The hotel and the jeepney or bus around the island is informative and interesting. I took a fishing boat out there and was lucky to catch a ferry boat back to manila. Book a fishing boat both ways or book the ferry boat.

Really enjoyed this last minute tour idea. It was really interesting to hear about life on the Island for the Allied troops as well as for the local Filipino's during the start of the war and during the following occupation. Lunch was just OK, but don't go on this tour for lunch, go on it for the good history, the... More

I booked onto a tour with Sun Cruises which departed promptly in the morning. The crossing was fairly bumpy but not too bad. The boat has toilets and a small shop. Upon arrival we boarded our allocated 'buses' and tour guide who stayed with us for the day. The guide was hard to understand at times but had plenty of... More

We booked the island tour thru Filipino Travel and could not have been more pleased. Their driver (Carlos) was most professional, knowledgeable, good driver and full of local and historic information. After touring the island, my girlfriend and I wished we would have stayed on the island overnite and rented the ATVs. Our island tour guide spoke good english and... More

We were told that this was a must-see tour, so we were excited. Unfortunately I feel a bit let down, but there was some redemption. The ferry ride to the island left late, and wasn't that pleasent. Loud Jackie Chan movies and Kareoke aren't what I figured history buffs where after, but who knows. Upon arrival, we were segregated to... More

My husband and I included Corregidor Island in our 2-week stay in the Philippines as part of our 1-month Asia mini tour. It was my first time visiting his homeland and I was so please with this tour as I learnt so much more about his country's history and culture. We did the tour package where you are taken around...

During my business trip to the Philippines, I had the fortune to take a day trip and visit this amazing island, and I'm glad I did. The trip began with a 1.5 hour ferry ride to the island which was enjoyable in and of itself. Upon arriving, I was treated to a 4 or so hour tour, including lunch at... More

I went to Corregidor last May for the first time in about two years. My purpose was not to take the regular tour (I've gone around the island enough times in the past). I rented a vehicle to take me around and take some photos which I needed to update an e-book of mine. My intention was to maximize my... More

I boarded the ferry and was on my way to adventure. On the ferry SunCruises keeps you pretty occupied with a movie which is awesome considering its about 1 hour and half from Manilla. Once on the island whatever number was on your tag that was the cable car you were on for the duration of the tour. I happened... More
