This 1 Hour Tour of Manila's Historic Intramuros, by bamboo bicycle is a really unique and fun way to check out some of the features of Manila's Walled City

This Express bike tour will take you on a quick journey through some of the streets of Intramuros, on super cool, customised Bamboo Bikes!

                        Available Tuesday to Sunday, from 9am.

This tour includes:-

  • Bamboo Bicycle Hire & Helmet
  • Visit to 4 or 5 of the locations listed below (depending on proximity)

Choose your style of bike from 'shopper', 'BMX' 'racing' and 'chopper' style bikes. The Bikes are all handmade by Gawad Kalinga Villagers, have been thoroughly tested for durability, crash worthiness and stiffness, and are certified to the toughest standards.

The Plaza San Luis Complex is the starting point of your tour. In the 1980's the Intramuros Administration purchased a property opposite San Agustin Church, and built 5 replica, domestic houses of the Spanish Occupation, this property was named Plaza San Luis Complex, after one of the 4 original Barrio's of Intramuros. 

On October 30 2015 Intramuros Manila was given an UNESCO World Heritage Cities of Spain Award, the first time this has ever been given to a city OUTSIDE of Spain


Choose your own adventure by selecting 4 or 5 from the 10 different destinations listed below. 

  • San Agustin Church (built in 1607) is located at General Luna Street and was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and a National Historical Landmark.
  • Galeria de los Presendentes de la Republica Pilipinas, translates as 'Gallery of Presidents' and is a garden with embossed plates featuring each of the country's Presidents from Emilio Aguinaldo up to Gloria Arroyo.
  • Site of Japanese Cannons
  • Puerta Real Gardens, actually started out life as a gate to the walled city but has since been converted in to the site of a beautiful garden, just outside the southern wall of Intramuros, and the perfect venue for weddings,  fashion shoots and cultural dinners
  • Puerta del Parian is another gate, on the east side of the walls and is named after the earliest concentration of Chinese merchants, in the Old City of Manila; the Parian de Arroceros.
  • Aduana (also known as Intendencia)  is a surviving building, which was still in use until recently, as Customs House.  It is now a cultural attraction and work is being undertaken to restore it
  • Maeztranza Curtain Wall is a north facing section of the wall, alongside Pasig River and near to Fort Santiago. This is another area of the wall currently under restoration with plans for a Cultural Venue, cafes and galleries along the street.
  • Plaza Roma is the Main Square of Intramuros, located in front of Manila Cathedral, and is also known as Plaza de Roma
  • Fort Santiago is one of the most historical sites in the whole of Manila, as it was the Citadel at time of Miguel Lopez de Legazpi. This fort today, is part of a historical park, which includes the Plaza Moriones and other ruins.

Other destinations, just outside of the wall include Luneta Park, Quirino Grandstand, and the Manila Hotel.  Please advise if you wish to visit these instead by clicking on the Customize it Button at the bottom of the page
