With all the traffic in such a dense city, most people would just get out to see other places and miss out on what Manila has to offer. Thanks to walking tours that will take you around heritage sites, majestic churches, food spots, and let you experience Filipino culture in a day! Here are a few of them:

Manila for a Day

There are a couple of walking tours out there, but this one specializes in creating unique experiences that narrate the compelling stories of the Filipino people. There are a couple of programs to choose from in their website. One of their interesting tours is called Colors of Manila, which combines a halal food crawl and market tour in the district of Quiapo.

Old Manila Walks

One of the walking tours that caters to those who are interested in colonial ruins, hidden temples, wet markets, traditional shops, city walls, food alleys, unofficial history and even the occasional forgotten graveyard. If you’re into that, you are certainly in for a treat!

This is the most unique tour so far in our list. This 3-hour story driven outdoor walk will take you through 6 iconic landmarks in and around Escolta, Manila’s Queen of Streets. Unlike your typical historical tour, you have to find clues, finish challenges, and discover missing links of the story to lead you to your next stop and complete the tour.

Most walking tours offer the same thing, but these 3 tops our list because of their unique way of presenting Manila. We hope that you give Manila a chance despite its busy streets and explore its beauty. To experience a city and its culture on foot is one of the best ways to travel.
