Delve deeply into Manila's past by visiting key historic landmarks, at times traveling by Jeepney, a wildly colored, bus-like vehicle that's considered a cultural icon.

Boarding your motor coach at the pier, you will first drive along Roxas Boulevard, the wide wonderfully scenic thoroughfare that hugs the shore of Manila Bay. Before long, you'll arrive in Intramuros, the city's oldest district, which is enclosed within a thick wall that the Spanish built for defense in the 1500s. Here, you'll tour notorious Fort Santiago, an imposing fortress where prisoners were held and tortured throughout the history of Manila.

Then, after some free time for souvenir shopping, you'll continue the tour via Jeepney. A uniquely Manilan form of transportation, these bus-like vehicles were originally made from U.S. military Jeeps after World War II. Today's Jeepneys are air-conditioned, typically painted in flamboyant colors, and abundant on the streets of Manila.

More historical sites await you, starting with magnificent San Agustin, a stone church constructed in 1606, and Casa Manila, a replica of a lavish Spanish colonial house decorated with period furniture. It was built as a pet project of the Philippines' former first lady Imelda Marcos.

Re-boarding your coach, you'll make a photo stop at serene Rizal Park, which is dedicated to national hero Dr. Jose Rizal, you'll see the Manila Hotel, a luxurious Philippine landmark that opened in 1912. General Douglas MacArthur used the hotel as his command post during much of World War II. Afterwards, you'll return to the pier.
