Your guide will fetch you from your Cebu City or Mactan accommodation on the day of your tour. From there, you will start making your way to your first stop, the Lapu-Lapu Monument.

Here, you will find a tower built on the site where Magellan was believed to be killed during the historic Battle of Mactan in 1521. Next, you will head over to the Alegre Guitar Factory. Known as the best guitar makers in the province, this establishment also shows travelers how each of their instruments is carefully crafted.
