Cebu Private Full Day City & Highlands + Simala Church Tour with Transfers
Explore the gardens, churches, historic places, and other attractions of Cebu with this day tour that will last the whole day. This tour is already inclusive of the assistance of a driver-guide, entrance fees to all sites, and pick-up and drop-off from your accommodations in Cebu or the Mactan-Cebu International Airport, so you don’t need to worry about arranging those all yourself.
On the day of your tour, be ready by 8 AM as your driver-guide will pick you up from your accommodations or the airport at this time. Your first stop is the Miraculous Simala Church, which has the official name Monastery of the Holy Eucharist. It is famous because it houses the Birhen sa Simala (Virgin Mary of Simala), which is said to be miraculous. The shrine is also known for its castle-like architecture. Take note that you need to wear proper attire to be let inside the church.
You’ll be heading to another church right after, the Basilica Minore del Sto. Niño de Cebu. Founded in 1565, it is the oldest Catholic church in Cebu. You’ll head to the nearby Magellan’s Cross afterward, and once you have snapped photos of the historic cross, you’ll visit other places that are significant to the history of Cebu, including Plaza Independencia, Fort San Pedro, the Parian Monument (which is also known as the Heritage of Cebu Monument) and the Yap-Sandiego Heritage House. After your visit to these historic places, you’ll have lunch at the House of Lechon at your own expense.
After trying the famous Cebu Lechon, you’ll continue visiting tourist sites in Cebu, starting with the Taoist Temple, which has become known for its distinct Chinese architecture. You’ll then head to the Sirao Garden, a property that is home to different types of flowering plants. You can also see pretty mountain views on your visit here.
You will also visit the Temple of Leah, one of the most popular attractions in Cebu. It is a temple dedicated to the memory of the late Leah Albino-Adarna. Before you are dropped off at your accommodations in Cebu or the airport, you will drop by La Vie Parisienne, a charming restaurant that serves French food and wine.
