My wife and daughter recently took one of Carlos Celdran’s walking tours and thoroughly enjoyed it. He has several interesting tours that are a must for anyone who wants to see downtown Manila with a set of new eyes and an incredible sense of humour. Not just great for tourists (ever wonder what to do with those visiting relatives and in-laws?), it is a must for Filipinos who haven’t the foggiest sense of our own interesting history… I also hear his Cultural Center walk with Imelda commentary is hilarious.

Another way to walk the streets downtown is through Old Manila Walks which offers several itineraries, the most interesting of which is an upcoming walk that takes you through Chinatown while munching on various specialties of the neighborhood. Yum!

Please visit the two links above for more information. Enjoy!

    Carlos is a great raconteur, I enjoy taking his tours. I’ve had one tour with Ivan (Old Manila Walks), who has a good grasp of modern history, and am looking forward to munching my way around Binondo.
    Carlos now has two shopping tours – Cubao and Bangkal. Check them out as an alternative to the malls.

    I have been meaning to try one of his tours! This post just reminded me. Thanks! And the 2 shopping tours sound great…I have been wanting to explore Bangkal so two birds with one stone.
