After following this tour, I am convinced that you can't find a tour guide like Carlos Celdran elsewhere in the world because he is the living embodiment of Philippine culture. He himself summarized it best; this is a tour of bad jokes, melodrama, and geophysics psychotherapy with a huge dose of sarcasm and irony. Here history is a platform for... More

We have been living in Manila for 18 months and decided today to take an Uber down to Intramuros and go on Carlos Celdran's walking tour. I have to say that as an American I thoroughly enjoyed hearing the story of the Philippines from a Filipino perspective. Carlos is a talented actor and has put together a very engaging, enjoyable,...

I live in Australia and have read about Carlos Celdran and his Walk This Way tours. My brother confirmed that he has heard good reviews from his friends who have done his tours. So we signed up for his Intramuros Tour and it was so worth it. Carlos is humorous, very knowledgeable, theatrical and passionate about our country and its... More

Take this one! At least the one at Intramuros.... It's rare to find a tour guide who's not only deeply knowledgeable about the history of a place but also funny and insightful. He characterizes the tour as "performance art in the guise of a walking tour," and i think that's very true. Some may be offended at parts of his... More

The Calderan walking tour of Intramuros was extremely interesting. I was expecting more walking and less talking but in the end I was completely taken by the flow of the history as it was greatly presented by our guide. I have never learned so much in 2 hours about a place, it is really the best thing you can do... More

Disappointed in this tour. There was over 80 people in our group and it was way too large. It was very hard to understand and hear Carlos because of the size of the group. Not much walking was done on this tour either. The best part was the halo halo at the end. I wouldn't recommend it.

Carlos Celdran's Walk This Way tour is a must experience when you're in Manila. He makes history highly entertaining and the tour was never boring. He does a quick run through of the Philippine History with a bit of a solo performance and he does it really well. If you're in Manila, this is a MUST EXPERIENCE tour. Will definitely... More

One of the best walking tours we've ever done. This guy is an actor, an historian and a true entertainer with a nice sense of cynicism, just a good balance of everything. Beautiful job! During 3 hrs you'll learn and laugh and won't see time passing. We are very glad that we could do it. Highly recommended.
