Get introduced to the historical places in the city of Cagayan de Oro with this afternoon tour around its iconic landmarks. If you’re looking forward to exploring the city aboard its very own local and unique transportation, then this private escapade is the perfect match for you.

You will be picked up at your accommodation in the downtown area by Cagayan de Oro’s Motorela, a locally used tricycle that will serve as your transportation in this city tour. From there, you will head over to St. Augustine Cathedral. This pilgrimage site was built in honor of St. Augustine of Hippo. Admire its neo-gothic architecture seen in its stunning windows and columns.

You will then make your way to the Sendong Marker, a historical marker built to honor the lives taken by Typhoon Sendong in 2011. Head next to the oldest public structure in the city,  the City Museum reconstructed from a former Water Tank Tower. Many of Kagay-anon’s achievements and recognitions are placed in the city museum, such as photos and other memorabilia from the past.

A mere 600 meters away from the museum is the Divisoria Plaza, also referred to as the Golden Friendship Park. The plaza is dedicated to notable Filipino figures like former President Ramon Magsaysay and local soldiers who fought for the country during the world wars. It now serves as a favorite recreational site for the locals. Stroll along the pathway and take loads of photos before you head to the Museum of Three cultures.  

At the museum, you can see the different relationships and practices of Kagay-anons who came from Islam, Christian, and Lumad ancestry.  Afterward, enjoy a rolling tour to the Provincial Capitol Grounds. You will then conclude the tour with a stop at the pasalubong centers where you can buy local goods and souvenirs. Once you're done, you'll be dropped off at your hotel. An optional stop to Gen. Douglas MacArthur Marker is added on this tour should you avail of the car transportation. Light snacks and refreshments will also be given should you feel a need to recharge your energy on this tour.
