The tour starts with a drive up to the picturesque city of Tagaytay. Located on a ridge 2,250 feet above sea level, the city offers panoramic views of Taal Lake and Volcano, the "lake within a volcano within a lake within a volcano". This view is best savored from atop the Palace in the Sky, the rest house of late President Ferdinand Marcos. Enjoy a brief lunch stop at a local restaurant to enjoy some local cuisine and delicacies in an atmosphere designed for panoramic views.
Then we start our drive back down to Metro Manila. First stop is the American War Memorial and Cemetery, the largest and most beautiful of American memorials outside the Continental U.S. Have a glimpse of Makati’s hustle and bustle as you drive past it on your way to the capital city of Manila. Go to the "Walled City" of Intramuros via scenic Roxas Boulevard (also known as Dewey Boulevard in the recent past) and passing through Rizal Park (named in memory of the country’s national hero).
In Intramuros you will see ancient walls, church ruins and other relics of the Spanish Conquistadors. Travel through old cobbled streets to San Agustin Church, the oldest stone church in the country. The tours wraps up at Fort Santiago, a Spanish fortress that once watched over the entrance to Pasig River. This is where our national hero Dr. Jose Rizal spent his last days and wrote his famous "My Last Farewell."
