Go around Iloilo City with this half-day history and sightseeing tour around the City of Love’s most popular historical and cultural attractions. This guided 5-hour tour includes two-way hotel transfers as well as entrance fees to local heritage sites.

To start off your tour, you’ll be visiting the business district of Jaro. You’ll reach a small street lined with trees including an old banyan (balete) tree where you’ll see Casa Mariquit, the oldest ancestral home in the province. Casa Mariquit is a two-story property that belonged to the prominent Javellana and Lopez families of Iloilo. 

Next, you’ll visit Jaro Cathedral Church. This 200-year-old church is the very first National Shrine in the Visayas and Mindanao region, so this place has a very special significance for the people of Iloilo City. Take the opportunity to pay homage to the miraculous image of the Lady of Candles.

From the church, you’ll be doing a running tour of the so-called Millionaire’s Row, a posh district where you’ll see the mansions that belong to the province’s wealthiest families.

More historical adventures await you at Casa Real, the old capitol building of Iloilo; Fort San Pedro, the city’s first frontier; and Muelle Loney, Iloilo’s river wharf. You’ll also come across General Luna Street, which is surrounded by notable structures like the University of San Agustin and University of the Philippines-Visayas.

The city has more old structures that have withstood the test of time, that will leave you in awe as you admire the beauty of Molo Mansion, a historic house turned souvenir shop, and Molo Church, which was built in 1831 in neo-Gothic style.

Take a stroll along the Esplanade, a beautifully landscaped promenade with a nice view of the riverside. Then check out Biscocho Haus and Deocampo’s Bakery, which are both go-to shops offering the best local delicacies in town.

Explore Iloilo City’s history and culture with a visit to magnificent churches, houses, and other notable structures with this tour. Check the booking availability by choosing a date.
