Tour around the historical and beautiful neighborhood of Intramuros on bamboo bicycles through this express guided tour. If you don’t have enough time to explore Manila, but want to visit all the interesting sites in the area, then this shared tour package is perfect for you and your group.
Intramuros, which means “within in the walls” in Spanish, is well-known for the stone walls that enclose the entire area. With its rich history and stunning architecture, you’ll surely enjoy the culture, the sights, and all the stories behind the oldest district of Manila.
The tour officially begins as soon as you arrive at the Bambike HQ, located at the Plaza San Luis Complex. Make sure to come early to have enough time to choose a bamboo bike of your liking, as each eco-friendly bike is crafted uniquely in different designs. This tour also provides other modes of transportation for individuals who are not comfortable using a bike.Once you’ve hopped on your bike, you’re off to go on your express tour with your Bambassador guide.
The first of your many stops is Plaza San Luis. Named after an old town in Manila, the area is currently a cultural and commercial complex and is composed of several houses, each representing different eras of Filipino-Spanish architecture. Pause and take a moment to listen to your Bambassador guide who will tell you about the rich history of the area before you cycle off to the Japanese canons and the beautiful Puerta Real Gardens, a place abundant with tropical greens and coconut palms.
Take a minute to bask in the view before heading off to your next stop. Built in 1593, the Puerta Del Parian served as one of the earliest entrances of Intramuros and is still in use today. Go people-watching on the busy gateway before heading just outside the walls of Intramuros to find the Aduana Building—your next stop. Also known as “Intendencia,” the building was used as a customs house back in 1935 and has gone through a lot before becoming into the ruins that it is today.
Don’t forget to take photos before heading off to the historic Manila Cathedral, the first cathedral in the Philippines built in 1571. If you’re lucky, you might even get to catch a glimpse of an ongoing wedding there before heading off to Plaza de Roma, the center of Intramuros and one of two major public squares of the city. Enjoy the open space and be in the moment as you walk around the plaza.
With many tourist spots to visit and also things to do, it’s easy to get lost in the sights of Intramuros. Your memorable tour officially ends when you head back to the Bambike HQ and bid farewell to both your Bambassador guide and the city of Intramuros.
