Get a glimpse of Cebu's rich history, culture, and sceneries through this Mactan Island tour. This is a perfect trip for travelers who want to experience the province's heritage as you will visit spots like Magellan's Shrine and the Lapu-Lapu Monument. This tour already includes transfers to each attraction, the service of a guide, and free hotel pick-up and drop-off within Cebu City or Mactan. 

After your guide fetches you from your accommodation in Cebu City or on Mactan Island, you will start making your way to Magellan's Shrine. Located in Lapu-Lapu City, the shrine commemorates Portuguese explore Ferdinand Magellan. The site of the shrine itself is where some people believe he was killed during the Battle of Mactan in 1521 when local tribes led by Lapu-Lapu defended Cebu from the invasion of a Spanish armada headed by Magellan. 

From there, you will travel a short distance to where the Lapu-Lapu Monument stands. This 20-meter-high bronze sculpture honors Lapu-Lapu, the Philippines' first national hero, in full battle gear. Along with the shrine and the monument, the whole park honors the historic Battle of Mactan.

Next on the itinerary is a visit to the Alegre Guitar Factory, which is known for its craftsmanship. On top of selling high-quality handmade guitars here, the factory and its staff offer walk-throughs of the whole process of crafting these six-string instruments. Finally, you will wrap up your adventure with a short sightseeing tour around Mactan Island.  

Visit some of the most historic spots in Mactan Island by booking this day tour. Check the availability by choosing a date.
