Full description
The tour starts with a drive up to the picturesque City of Tagaytay. Located on a ridge 2,250 feet above sea level, the city offers panoramic views of Taal Lake and Volcano, the "lake within a volcano within a lake within a volcano". This view is best savored from atop the Palace in the Sky, rest house of late President Ferdinand Marcos. Enjoy a brief lunch stop at a local restaurant to enjoy some local cuisine and delicacies in an atmosphere designed for panoramic views. Then we start our drive back down to Metro Manila. First stop is the American War Memorial & Cemetery, the largest and most beautiful of American memorials outside the Continental U.S. Have a glimpse of Makati’s hustle and bustle as you drive through on your way to the capital city - Manila via scenic Roxas Boulevard (also known as Dewey Boulevard in the recent past) passing through Rizal Park (named in memory of the country’s national hero) on your way to the "Walled City" of Intramuros. Here you will see ancient walls, church ruins and other relics of the Spanish Conquistadors. Travel through old cobbled streets to San Agustin Church, the oldest stone church in the country. The tours wraps up at Fort Santiago, a Spanish fortress that once watched over the entrance to Pasig River. It was here that our national hero Dr. Jose Rizal spent his last days and where he wrote his famous "My Last Farewell."

Loved it, would strongly recommend

A driver picked my up at 8am from EDSA Shangri La, we went to another hotel, where I met my driver and guide for the day, Fernando. Morning tour to Tagatay was just me, solo. Beautiful sights, lots of attention from my guide, he gave great info, and paced things perfectly. Palace in the Sky was great, visibility was so-so, but still very scenic. Afternoon we picked up one other customer, and toured US Memorial Cemetary, Intramuros and downtown. Great info, covered lots of ground. Returned to hotel by 6:30pm. Well worth the price, which was 40% less than my hotel offered. Great memories.
