Come along for a tour of Manila’s past and present. The tour starts right in the heart of the country’s financial center - the City of Makati. First stop is Nielsen’s Tower along Ayala Boulevard. Drive through Forbes Park, an exclusive residential enclave fittingly dubbed Millionaire’s Row on your way to our first stop – The American Cemetery and Memorial - reputed to be the largest and most beautiful of American memorials outside the Continental United States.

What people are saying about Luzon

Loved it, would strongly recommend

A driver picked my up at 8am from EDSA Shangri La, we went to another hotel, where I met my driver and guide for the day, Fernando. Morning tour to Tagatay was just me, solo. Beautiful sights, lots of attention from my guide, he gave great info, and paced things perfectly. Palace in the Sky was great, visibility was so-so, but still very scenic. Afternoon we picked up one other customer, and toured US Memorial Cemetary, Intramuros and downtown. Great info, covered lots of ground. Returned to hotel by 6:30pm. Well worth the price, which was 40% less than my hotel offered. Great memories.

Excelente! Much More than I expected!

The guide and drivers were very nice, patient, the knew about every part ir the tour. I was punctually picked up at the hotel. And was also back at the time scheduled. I really recommend it.
