Immerse yourself in the rich heritage of Vigan by joining this historical full day tour. This guided tour is perfect for those wanting to explore the quaint part of Ilocos and learn the history behind its aesthetic-looking buildings.

Wait for your designated driver to pick you up at the lobby of your accommodation in Laoag City. Once settled, your guide will give you a brief rundown of the day's itinerary, starting from a visit to St. Paul's Cathedral.

Also known as the Metropolitan Cathedral, the St. Paul’s Cathedral is a relic of the country’s colonial history. The current structure has been around since the 1800s with many reconstructions and maintenance throughout the centuries.

You will then make your way to Bantay Bell Tower, which traces its history all the way back to the 1590s. This ancient structure has withstood the test of time and has seen the Spanish come and leave in the last few centuries. Take pictures of this Ilocandia icon and feel the wave of nostalgia wash over you as you try to imagine what life was like before.

Go back to a time where kalesas or horse-drawn carriages were the only mode of transportation at the Spanish-ruled Philippines when you explore Calle Crisologo. This heritage town is a perfect backdrop for your photo ops. You will also be visiting Pagburnayan, a famous pottery attraction wherein you can buy or create your own pot made by clay.

Enjoy an animal sightseeing adventure when you visit Baluarte next, a zoological park visited regularly by locals and tourists alike. Afterward, you'll be heading next to Ilocos Regional Museum Complex, a group of museums housing important memorabilia such as Elpidio Quirino's bedroom, Chiang Kai Shek's gift to the former president, and a collection of Basi wine, a popular alcoholic fermented beverage made from sugarcane.

Walk on the cobblestone streets of Vigan and discover its old world charm alone or with your loved ones. Check availability by choosing a date above.
