I had so much FUN! :) I am a fan of Amazing Race. If ever given a chance, I would want to experience being a contestant of that show. This tour let me feel the enjoyment and the thrill being part of the reality program. I love the adrenaline rush while doing the challenges. Haha. :)

I am actually staying in Manila for 7 years, and this is my first time to explore Escolta. The architectural design of buildings and food, truly amazing! :) I found out that there's still much more to discover! :) What makes this tour unique is you are learning historical facts in an exciting way. :)

I would also want to commend the organizers behind this tour, Manila Who for this creative concept. They are also accommodating and cool! :)

Here's the complete experience during our Escolta tour. :)
