Tour description

Get a magnificent view of an active volcano within a huge caldera, see the country’s favorite weekend retreat and visit a historic town that survived the volcano’s last major eruption. This is the best trip you can take for your cruise stop in Manila.

Your trip leader will pick you up at your cruise ship's port and you will take a 1.5-hour drive from Manila to Tagaytay. The drive involves a winding climb up to Tagaytay ridge and you will see fields of rice, pineapples, fruits and vegetables along the way. Tagaytay is actually on the crater lip of a huge extinct volcano and it offers the best view of Taal Volcano and Taal Lake. You can have an early lunch in Tagaytay while enjoying the view then you will drive to Taal Town. A very old town established in 1572 that has Asia’s biggest Catholic church and a collection of old houses that showcase traditional Filipino-Spanish architecture. You will visit churches, old houses and other points of interest in the town before driving back to Manila in the afternoon.
