Special Cultural Tour!
The ULTIMATE Kapampangan Show-off!

Journey to the central heartland as we immerse ourselves in things Kapampangan! From Baroque to Betute, its fun-filled day as we poke around and get intimate with the very best of Pampanga’s cultural offerings. Gawk at the jewel-box of church in Betis while wading through the lahar-buried town of Bacolor. We’ll stuff ourselves silly with the best Kapampangan fare by one of the country’s best known Pampango chefs! To it cap-off, we’ll have front-row view of the most dazzling display of Kapmpangan artistry- the Ligligan Parul Festival of San Fernando! A tour with nothing but Kapampangan cool!

    I did read about that, although the price tag seems really steep. Would be better if they probably broke down the components of the Php4500 for more transparency.

    I have been wanting to join this Kapampangan Tour. Unfortunately, our vacation does not coincide with the tour’s date. I hope one day before my soul depart this Awesome Planet…

    MM, Our Amazing Planet? Should it not be Our Awesome Planet?

    Claude Tayag is one of the region’s best chef but to dine in his place is quite exorbitant. His OXO sauce – I do not know if he gave it a new name or phased it out is good in almost anything – steak, grilled chicken, seafoods, etc. I know it is not open to the public but only to a group of 10 diners and by reservation. His lechon kawali is very good. Obviously, the man knows what he is doing. He keeps his cuisine to people who are willing to splurge – it will really tear down your wallet!

    I think the Kapampangan Tour may not be too expensive if you think about the cost of entrance fees, food, and transpo from Manila. Yes, it would help to know which things are covered and not.
