  • Not a bad tour. Good way to see the highlights of Cebu.

  • Overall it was ok but we were disappointed that there was no horse-drawn carriage ride. For the price we paid which includes the ride, we felt ripped off. The guide was also not aware that our tour includes a horse-drawn carriage ride and after she checked with the office and found that it was not available she was apologetic and compensated with a tour to a guitar factory which was also a disappointment as there was nothing much there. The reason why we took on this tour was because we were intrigued by the horse-drawn carriage ride. Sad...
