Bianca and Paula did a wonderful job guiding us through Manila. Everything was perfectly organised with private van and driver. It’s was a great opportunity to discover the Filipino cuisine. My absolute favourite dish was bibingka.
We highly recommend this tour especially because it’s not only covering Binondo, the oldest Chinatown, but also Malate and the famous Dampa seafood street. You won’t be hungry after this tour!
Great food tour if you only have limited number of days to explore Manila's street, our guide & driver are friendly and very informative, learnt quiet a few history along the trip. This is perfect for a family as it is not that easy to get around and explore the foods in the city especially with a big group.
