A great way to spend a couple of hours in the afternoon. Carlos really enjoys what he does and his love for the city and passion for performance rolls up nicely into a two hour show. Not much by way of walking, but if you are new to the Philippines and its history "Walk this way" is a great way... More

An insightful view of Filipino history and culture in the old heart of the city of Manila, Intramuros.

Carlos Celdran is a passionate and extremely knowledgeable guide. His tour is more "performance art" than just a mere tour. If you want to know about Manila, the Philippines & the Filipino then this is the tour your should take. Thoroughly recommended.

If you are a Filipino looking for an amusing 2 hours, or a tourist looking to learn about Manila and Filipino history this is a recommended tour. More comedy and drama performance than city tour my wife and I had spent a wonderful 2 hours in the company of Carlos Celdran (or was that Jose Rizal or Douglas MacArthur, I... More

A friend who had stayed in Manila for work recommended me to take this tour as the best way to know Manila. And I must say I throughly enjoyed it. Carlos is an excellent performer and gives such a great narration of history with so much humor tht you won't get bored even for a minute in 2 hr tour.... More

Carlos is just amazing. The tour of Intramuros was made extremely exciting and funny. He makes the history look very interesting and gives funny facts. There is a tinge of patriotism and a call for the locals to contribute to the society. It ends in a historic house where you are served the local desert halo halo. You get to... More

Carlos grabbed my attention before the tour even started, but not via the loud, excitable act he's known for. Instead, what set my bias positive from the get-go was his kind, genuine engagement with waiting tourgoers while the last few stragglers made their way to the starting point. Once things got going, it was performance art. He's done this hundreds... More

As I already told the same thing to the guide, one of the best tours I've seen! So theatrical, emotional and funny, but still historical and detailed. I recommended it to my friends right away, it's not expensive and you get to know all about Manila history and soul in few tremendous hours.

I have to admit we did not actually do much walking. Carlos will take you to only a few significant spots, sit you down and school you on the history of Manila. However, this is not your typical tour where the guide spouts statistics then gives 5 minutes at each site for photos. He is there to tell you a... More

When I first arrived, I was uncertain as to where to sign up for the tour. The website says that you need to meet at Fort Santiago, Sta.Clara Street. Intramuros. This obviously meant nothing to me, and fortunately the driver took me right to the gates of the Fort. Once you are there, several local people will try to accost... More
