Manila and Makati Tour: American Cemetery, Intramuros and Manila Ocean Park Admission

3
You’ll be picked up from your Manila or Makati hotel in the morning and driven by air-conditioned vehicle to some top Manila attractions, starting at the American Cemetery and Memorial.

This massive burial ground and memorial is located on a high plateau, and is the largest cemetery in the Pacific for US soldiers killed during World War II. Next, head through the bustling financial district of Makati. Pass through the Cultural Center of the Philippines Complex and stop at the historical Rizal Monument in Rizal Park. This monument honors one of the most revered national heroes of the Philippines, José Rizal.

Continue to the historic walled city of Intramuros, which held the seat of the Spanish government during the Spanish colonial period. Here, you'll walk along cobblestone paths to Fort Santiago, one of the country's most important historical sites, where Rizal was imprisoned before his execution. On the ground, you'll see symbolic footprints marked in bronze, representing his last footsteps from his cell to the site of his execution.

After touring these cities, enjoy a relaxing afternoon at Manila Ocean Park. Have lunch at the Makansutra Asian Food Village and then check out the park's main attractions like the Oceanarium, home to more than 5,000 species of marine life indigenous to the Philippines. Inside, visit the jellyfish exhibit to learn about the different varieties of jellyfish all over the world. End your afternoon watching the park’s most loveable creatures at the exciting Sea Lion Show!

After your tour, you’ll be taken back to your hotel.

    This was a good tour. The only drawback was the Manila Ocean park part....the lunch was so so. And the pick up time was not set accurately - that caused us to wait a bit for the ride back to the hotel.

    The best part of the tour was going to the American Cemetery. This tour was definitely not worth the money. The tour guide gave me a number to contact them - the number was incorrect. No apologies were given. I had to find my own way back to my hotel as I couldn and #39;t get in touch with them.

    I thought this was an overpriced and mediocre tour. I didnt think the Guide knew a lot. I was disappointed we didnt spend enough time at San Augustins - we werent taken to the Museum. Rizal park was massive and we were given only 20 minutes there. It was a waste of time.

    Was picked up exactly on time and everything went as promised in the description. However at Ocean Park I was told I would be left there and would have to return to mu hotel on my own (Not as promised). Rick, the tour guide, told me to go upstairs to the Makan Restaurant where they were expecting me. No coupon was given. At the restaurant no one seemed to know anything about a free lunch for me. After a whole lot of phone calls and around 20 minutes later they gave me a seat and a fantastic menu with dozens of options. However when I ordered I was told I could choose my meal only from a limited choice of 4 options. I ordered, had my nice iced tea, one bite of the awful meal and left. The only redemption to the bad end of an otherwise nice day was the awesome sea lion show - a must see and definitely the highlight of my Manila stay.
