The next stop is Alegre Guitar Factory, a warehouse and souvenir shop regarded to be one of the pioneers in guitar-making, a craft that Cebu has been known for.

You will also visit the Taoist Temple, a massive shrine built by the Chinese community of Cebu. If the tour participants reach 11 people, you will instead go to Pedro Calungsod Church, a chapel built in honor of the newly-canonized Cebuano martyr.

A running tour to Colon Street (often regarded as the oldest street in the country), Fuente Osmeña Circle, and Capitol Site is next on the itinerary. You will also visit the Yap – San Diego Ancestral House, a 17th-century ancestral house.
