What you can expect

This eye-opening tour exposes you to the allure of sibling cities Cebu and Mactan. Accompanied by a professional guide, visit both cities' iconic landmarks, including Magellan's Cross, the Santo Niño Basilica, and the Mactan Liberty Shrine, all while learning the history of each place.

Your 2-city tour begins in Cebu after you're picked up from your hotel. As you drive around the bustling streets, a professional guide relates fascinating historical anecdotes, giving you a peek into the Cebu of old. Visit Magellan's Cross, which was planted in 1521 and acts as a symbol of the nation's conversion to Christianity. Nearby is the Santo Niño Basilica, which was founded in 1565 and is the oldest Roman Catholic church in the country. Your tour also takes you to the Heritage of Cebu Monument, where your guide explains the significance of the sculptures, which depict the city's history.

After a break for lunch, head across the Mactan Channel to Mactan Island. Your first stop is Mactan Liberty Shrine, also known as Lapu-Lapu Shrine, which commemorates the Battle of Mactan in 1521 between the Spanish and the Visayan people. Also, visit the Alegre Guitar Factory to learn how the instruments are crafted and watch master guitarsmiths at work. Finally, head to a dried mango factory for a tour of the premises and gain insight into the history behind the one of the region's top products.
