We had a great tour with Alex and Liz. Liz is very welcoming and very knowledgeable of all the sites that we went to. We highly recommend that you book. Liz also made sure we got a lot of great pictures at all the sites. So if you want to see the Cebu highlights then you should definitely go.


Guide was very knowledgeable. She really took care of us. We had a very good time. My prefer place was at the fort to learn a little bit more the history of Cebu. The only sad thing is that we did not have time to take good picture of the monument who was close to the ancestral home


The tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. Saw a lot in only a few hours. Great overview of Cebu's history.


The guide never showed up and it's impossible to contact anyone by phone cebu or Manila you take my money immediately yet you want weeks to refund


Our tour guide, Liezel, was wonderful and very entertaining! We enjoyed our time with her and the driver, Jusen! They were accommodating to our needs and answered questions about places we visited!


An amazing and educational tour. Our guide Liz was exceptional, friendly, funny, and absolutely outstanding. She was passionate about Cebu’s history and culture. Our driver was also very kind and courteous. I highly recommend this tour!


My husband and I booked this tour for 25 January. Although we had only decided to do so the night before, we met our tour guide Liz Ann and our driver James (as also announced by email) punctually the next morning at 9:00 am in the hotel lobby. The car that picked us up was a modern, clean and spacious car with air conditioning. While James skilfully and calmly drove us through the very busy traffic of Cebu City, we were provided with lots of information about Cebu City by Liz Ann. We visited all the sights indicated in the description. Liz Ann knew interesting things and stories to tell at each place and we learned a lot. After a good 4 hours, we were dropped back at the hotel safe and sound and just had a great morning. Thank you Liz Ann and James for accompanying us with your friendly and attentive manner!

Roy was an excellent, congenial, knowledgeable guide. The tour gave me the perfect opportunity to see historical sites in Cebu. Transportation was a big new handsome van with a good driver. I liked this as a private tour so I could go at my own pace.


Lish was absolutely the most amazing tour guide my family has ever had. She’s extremely knowledgeable and brings warmth and charm to your experience giving it a personal touch :). I highly recommend her to anyone!
