We went on a day trip to Tagaytay. It was a very long drive to Tagaytay and there was not much to see either on the journey or at the site. Our tour guide was interesting but do not feel I would recommend this excursion

Took a walking tour. City so crowded and tour guide not very helpful as pavements uneven and much difficulty in navigating.

Traffic is horrendous in this town. Don't go to Tagatay ridge, it is too far out of town and takes to long. Stay in town when you are there only for the day and visit Intramuros.

Manila Bay with the surrounding mountains is beautiful. Manila we found disappointing; too much poverty. The old city of Intramuros we found in a poor condition. Not worth the visit.

We choice 'Charms of Manila'. Wish we'd chosen a more adventurous trip. But as a trip for easy access, it was excellent.

We did the downtown tour. Would not necessarily recommend. Manila is a very poor, and unclean city I am afraid. Go to the Manila Hotel for free wifi and a decent coffee though - within walking distance of the port entrance.

We took the Celebrity Hidden Valley tour. We enjoyed the walk to the hidden waterfall and the soaking in the four thermal pools.

Hidden valley trip.Extremely poor value for money at £255 for two ! Over 4 hrs in a not so comfy bus listening to the tour guide loudly telling the whole of the history of the Philipines going and coming back ! Hidden valley is only a tired cleared area in the jungle with a few manmade pools concreted sides ...called the love pool etc !.A short rickety walk stopping all the time for other tourists to pass, to a waterfall which you could not go to bug could view in the distance ! A bland cup cake .light lunch and one soft drink and a few hours in a manmade jungle sitting is NOT what I would call an exciting trip to a 'hidden valley ' !! Read Less

We would have enjoyed this more if it were not so terribly hot. We took a cab to different places outside of town, like volcanos, on one day and wandered the Intermuros the next day

As arrived in centre of Manila we were able to get hold of a cycle rickshaw driver who took us around all of the key sites at a fraction of the price of the official trips

We walked to Intermuros along with quite a few others who clearly did not want to pay the high prices for the ships tours. About a 20 minute walk in the heat.

Took a cruise line tour of Intromouros which is the old spainish town of Manila. Interesting from what we saw, but not somewhere I would feel the need to visit again.

Manila itself is an excellent port of call. interesting history and beautiful gardens. However, my visit was spoiled by the misinformation received from the Magellan ShoreEx staff.
