Tour the war-torn buildings and memorials on Corregidor at the entrance to Manila Bay, the site of some of the most pivotal, fierce fighting in World War II's Pacific Theater.

Depart from the pier in a motor coach for a scenic drive through the countryside to the hovercraft ferry that will take you to Corregidor. This small, rocky island strategically located at the entrance of Manila Bay was fiercely fought over during World War II. First held by Allied forces under the command of General Douglas MacArthur, Corregidor eventually fell to the Japanese after MacArthur left to command troops in Australia. True to his promise, "I shall return," the general recaptured Corregidor in March 1945.

Today, the island, also known as "The Rock," is strewn with gun batteries and battle-scarred buildings, each with a poignant story. You'll see many of the most important landmarks on the island's high-elevation "Topside" section, including the Army's headquarters, the Mile-Long Barracks for 8,000 soldiers, and Spanish Lighthouse, a replica built on the site of the 1836 original.

Following lunch at the Playa Hotel, you'll drive past a number of other historic buildings before entering Malinta Tunnel. During the siege of Corregidor, this concrete re-enforced tunnel provided a bomb-proof shelter for munitions, supplies and a 1,000-bed hospital. Inside, you'll watch a captivating Light and Sound show that re-creates the dramatic events of World War II on Corregidor. After the performance, you'll retrace your route via ferry and motor coach back to the pier in Manila.
