Experience the sights and learn about the history of the two bustling districts of Manila and Makati in this guided tour. This full-day tour is perfect for history and art lovers as it gives you a chance to visit one of the best museums in the country.
Your tour will begin after picking you up in your accommodation, where you will head to the monument of Dr. Jose P. Rizal, which is the point from where all distances from Manila are measured. Afterwards, you will explore the historical district of Intramuros on foot, home to Fort Santiago and San Agustin Church, which is the oldest stone church in the Philippines and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will continue on to Casa Manila, which is a museum depicting the colonial lifestyle during the Spanish colonization. Of course, a visit to Manila isn’t complete without visiting the National Museum, which contains numerous works of art, historical artifacts, and specimens which are related to the cultural heritage of the Filipino people.
Up next, you will be driven to the business district of Makati, where you will visit the Nielson Tower, a structure which resembles an airplane from a bird’s-eye view. It used to be an airport which was the base of the American Far Eastern School of Aviation. Nowadays, it is home to Blackbird, which made use of the old airport’s facilities such as the passenger terminal, check in area, and the control tower and integrated it with the design of the restaurant. You will also explore the nearby Ayala Avenue, which is home to numerous skyscrapers and offices, yet still maintains its relationship with nature through its many landscaped urban parks. Your driver will bring you back to your hotel at the end of the day.
