Are you up for a historical walking tour of Intramuros?

If you want to see more of its beauty and hear stories about Old Manila, you might want to sign up for the Let’s Go Intramuros public tour happening next weekend, Jan. 28 and 29 at 3:00 p.m. 

Prepared and conducted by a tour guide accredited by the Department of Tourism, the itinerary includes Plaza San Luis, Casa Manila, San Agustin Church, Memorae De Manila 1945, Plaza Roma, Manila Cathedral, and Fort Santiago. It will run for about three hours.

The tour fee costs P99. You may message them on their Facebook page to reserve a slot. 

If you want to take a tour at night for a change, the Intramuros After Dark: Night Walking Tours and Beyond could be your best bet as it’s offering a “dark tour” with stories about “Philippine history and heritage that covers the Spanish, American, and the Japanese periods.”

“There will be story stops on sites where historical buildings were located,” they added. 

The night walking tour covers the following:

  • Stories from Plaza Roma and The Fort Santiago
  • Intramuros: The Walled City of Old Manila
  • The Manila Cathedral and Plaza Roma
  • The Memorare Manila
  • The San Agustin Church
  • The Plaza San Luis Complex and the Piedra China
  • The Dancing Fountain at the Manila City Hall Grounds
  • The Hidden Garden and the Liwasang Bonifacio
  • The Old Original Chinatown of Manila
  • Stories from The Jones Bridge and the Old Calle Escolta

The available schedules this month are Jan. 28 and 29 as well as Feb. 4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, and 26 from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The regular rate per pax is P1,300, but it’s being offered at a discounted price at the moment for only P850 per pax.

You may also request a private tour on any Friday or Monday night. Just message them on Facebook for bookings.
