Come along on a half-day tour of Cebu and appreciate the rich background of the Queen City of the South. This tour is perfect for any traveler who wants to learn about the history of Cebu as well as hear interesting stories about popular landmarks.

Your private tour begins when you are picked up from your Cebu or Mactan hotel. Your first stop is Magellan’s Cross right at the heart of the city, an important symbol in the history of Cebu. Located in front of the City Hall, it is believed to house the wooden cross planted in 1521 by Portuguese explorers headed by Ferdinand Magellan.

Next, you will go to the Basilica Minore Del Sto. Niño. This is the oldest Roman Catholic church in the Philippines. Within its walls, the oldest Catholic relic in country, the Sto Nino de Cebu, is found.

After the stop at the church, you will visit the Cebu Heritage Monument. Created by National Artist Eduardo Castrillo, this monument features sculptures that depict significant events in the history of the province, with carvings of the Basilica, a Spanish Galleon, and a statue of St. Pedro Calungsod.         

From there, you will go straight to the Yap-Sandiego Ancestral House. Built in the 17th century, it is one of the oldest surviving houses in the Philippines and believed to be the oldest Chinese house outside of mainland China.

Finally, you will go to your last stop, the Cebu Taoist Temple. Built in 1972 by Cebu’s prominent Chinese residents, the temple has a chapel, a library, a wishing well, and a souvenir shop. Its entrance resembles the Great Wall of China, and its balconies give you a fantastic view of downtown Cebu.
