Full description
Get on your bamboo bike made by local craftsmen to explore all major historical sites of Intramuros, the historical district of Manila. Start your tour by picking the best bambike that fits you. Start your tour with the guide by riding to Plaza San Luis, a complex inside Intramuros where you can find a Japanese cannon used in World War II. Spend time listening to your guide's explanation about Intramuros's history at Puerta Real Gardens, surrounded by local fauna. The next stop is Puerta Del Parian, one of the earliest gateways to Intramuros. You will then be directed to the Aduana Building, Manila Cathedral and Plaza de Roma, the historic center of Spanish colonial times of Manila.

This is a great interactive activity to learn history of Intramuras and the Philippines. John was knowlegble and had good jokes. You will ride alongside Manila traffic, so be prepared, although the tour will have an additional guide to ensure the group safely crosses a tricky turn or intersection

Our guide Steven provided us very good and interesting overview of the history of Manila and Philippines. I really enjoyed this experience and I think it is the best way to get to know Manila’s history and to see historical part of it if you are staying in the city only for couple of nights, like it was in my case.

It was really nice to see the old city center and get information about the history. Riding the bike made it a lot more fun and you got a feeling for how it is to drive in Manila. The end with the wet towel and the ice cream was great after sweating during the tour.
