Hop on board an afternoon of rediscovery as you tour around Cebu City’s historic and cultural sites. This trip best appeals to anyone looking for a quick half-day trip packed with attractions of the city's highlights but does not have the time for a whole day adventure.
Meet the other guests joining the tour at Ayala Center Turista Desk where you will be picked up early in the afternoon. Once you are all set, you will be driven to the Taoist Temple at Beverly Hills Subdivision.
The temple was built in 1972 by Chinese-Filipino residents to practice their faith. Upon arriving, you will be greeted by a mini replica of the Great Wall of China, a perfect backdrop for your selfies. After the quick photo-op, head over to the balconies to get a panoramic view of downtown Cebu.
From the Taoist Temple, you will then go to the Cebu Heritage Monument, where you will see sculptures and carvings of iconic sites in the province, along with several prominent Cebuanos. You will then head to the Yap-Sandiego Ancestral House, one of the oldest surviving structures in the country. It is believed to be the oldest Chinese house found outside China.
After touring the house, you will make your way to the Magellan’s Cross. This chapel contains what is believed to be the same wooden cross that Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan planted on Philippine soil in 1521. It signifies the rich history of Cebu and its cultural significance as the birthplace of Roman Catholicism in the country. From there, you will have a quick stopover at Basilica Minore Del Sto. Niño de Cebu, the oldest Roman Catholic church in the country, to offer some prayers. Capping off your trip will be a running tour along Colon Street, Fuente Osmena Circle, and Capitol Site before you make your way back to the Ayala Center Turista Desk.
