“A Must See ...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

The trek going to this picturesque place
is itelf an adventure. The winding roads and
the amount of gas to reach this urban
must see attraction are wirth it.

Do not be there and be a square.

The views from this place is majestic and world class.
Daytime especially on a clear day is phenomenal.
Dusk, night time and daw are just ... magical!

Bring a light jacket to protect your from
the cold because it ON TOP of Cebu.

You have not seen Cebu if you have not been
to Tops.

Very memorable for me because I saw fireworks
and the views were spectacular. You must bring light
meal and drinks becuase the place does not
serve your your palate but it serves your
sights to the fullest.

A must see...!

“The view was ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

The place was a bit far. The view was ok. Its a bit foggy or hazzy at that time so we were not able to see the city clearly. Good for love birds but not so for family.

“its ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

i heard a lot of good things about this place so we finally decided to visit it. i was not advised by my friends that there is entrance fee of 100 pesos each :(. since we already traveled a long way to reach it so no choice but to avail it. the place is nice since the view is overlooking at the cebu city and mactan island, though be warned of the high price goods here.

“Romantic and great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

A nice place to go if you are seeking quiet and romance.
Taxi drivers will try to gouge you when quoting a price to take you here,
just negotiate with them.
A great view, but no other activities here.

“Only go if visibility is good!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

On very clear days with very good visibility the view would be good....otherwise, give it a miss as taxi's charge well above average to make the trip up there (1000 pp), plus there is entrance to pay at the top. There are a few drinks stalls at the top selling soft drinks and beers - it is disappointing.
