Learn about the history of the Philippines when you visit Intramuros in Manila on a horse-drawn carriage. Taking you on an excursion inside the walled-city, this budget-friendly tour is perfect if you want to explore the various tourist destinations inside and learn its significance for the Filipino people while riding a unique transportation.

The day begins when you meet your guide at Fort Santiago for a short walking tour inside the Rizal Shrine Museum. While here, you’ll be able to learn about the Philippine’s National Hero, Jose Rizal, and how he changed the course of the nation through his writings.

After the walking tour, you will board a carruaje or a horse-drawn carriage manned by a rig driver; signaling the start of the cultural immersion around the vicinity of Intramuros.

Along with your guide, you’ll pass through the Manila Cathedral first. It is the main Roman Catholic Church and is considered as one of the most beautiful churches in the country due to its rustic and classic interior. Afterwards, you’ll pass through Palacio del Gobernador next. Built in 1976, the government building was used as a headquarters during the Spanish colonization.

You’ll also be seeing Casa Manila, where one can witness how high-class Filipinos lived during the Spanish colonial times. Beside it, you’ll be seeing the oldest church in the country, San Agustin Church. Built in 1571, it stayed firm despite the destruction caused in Intramuros during World War II.

You’ll make your stop at the Philippine President’s Gallery, where you can learn about the history of the presidents of the country. After walking through the wall, you’ll arrive at the former location of Gen. MacArthur Headquarters. Learn about his pivotal role in the country’s history before passing through Baluarte de San Diego, a historical fort that stood the test of time and helped defend the land of the Philippines.
