This tour was great. Dustin took us through the history of the people and the culture from the perspective of the Philipino people. We had a great time and ended the tour with the strange but delicious Halo Halo. Don't hesitate booking with them!

Dustin gave us a fascinating insight into the Filipino culture, both historical and current. We were never rushed and enjoyed some great conversations with him as walked around. Thoroughly enjoyed our morning with him!
