Come along this tour and discover Iloilo City’s historic sites and other popular attractions. This half-day private sightseeing trip is perfect for anyone who wants to get a deeper insight into the city’s heritage and culture. 

Your tour start starts once you are picked up from your accommodation in Iloilo City. Your tour guide will give you a  rundown of the day’s itinerary as you make your way to your first stop. 

You will head first to the Iloilo City Hall for a photo opportunity. From there, you will go downtown to the streets of Iznart and General Luna. Listen as your guide discusses the significance of this commercial center dating back to the American regime. 

In General Luna, you will find Casa Real, a National Historical Site that was once the old capitol building of Iloilo during the American Period. Later on, it became a Japanese concentration camp during the occupation. This landmark also serves as Kilometer Zero of the city. 

Afterward, you will visit the Lopez Boat House. This sleek modern mansion is owned by former vice president Fernando Lopez. Marvel at the Art Deco-inspired architecture of this unique house. It was dubbed as a “Boathouse” because it resembles a battleship with portholes.

You will now proceed to La Paz Public Market to get a glimpse of a typical day in the city. Here you can find local products and souvenirs unique to the province of Iloilo. A must-try is the authentic La Paz Batchoy, a local noodle dish with meat, garlic, and chicharon (pork rind). Enjoy a bowl of this comfort food before you proceed to your next destination.

Walk along the famous Millionaire Row and see the Sanson y Montinola Antillan House. A visit to this ancestral home will give you a glimpse of how the old rich lived back in the day. Expect to see a grand staircase leading to rooms and living spaces filled with antique furniture. 

You will also have a running tour to Fort San Pedro, Muelle Loney, Nelly Garden, Lizares Mansion, Megaworld Business, Iloilo Convention Center, Esplanade, and Smallville. The attractions will make you fall in love with Iloilo more. On top of that, you will go on a side trip to Jaro Cathedral and Belfry, Sinamay dealer, Molo Mansion, and Molo Church.
