A wonderful experience! I only had one day to see Manila, and because I am travelling alone I was a bit afraid to visit some areas. Venus brough me to some amazing and unique places while making me feel as safe as possible. She had lots of cool information about life in the Philippines and took great photos of me. She kindly bought me a drink and tasty food, and pointed out some really cool places to do some souvenir shopping if I had wanted to do that. She also gave me some advice for how to spend my evening after the tour was finished. Thank you so much Venus !

I found Venus' "Discover Real Manila" experience and it sounded just like the type of walking tour I wanted. Being a Filipino-American born in the US, I seeked to learn and experience more of the real Manila rather than that of Makati, Poblacion, BGC and all of its nightlife and expansive shopping malls. I booked the morning of and I met Venus at the meeting spot at our coordinated time. True to the description listing, Venus started with taking me through some of the poorest areas in Tondo, then the streets and markets of Binondo Chinatown, and ended with a jeepney ride to the beautiful Rizal Park. During the entire journey Venus provided excellent commentary about the local people, areas, and culture. Venus is very warm, friendly, sociable, and caring—she ensured my safety as we navigated the streets' foot and vehicular traffic. The digital pictures she took throughout she promptly sent to me later that evening. I felt Venus' extensive knowledge of the areas made this experience very personal and authentic. It ended with me knowing more about the real Manila and also making a new friend. Highly recommended.

If you want to discover how local people live this is the perfect experience. Venus is really kind and friendly, always ready for help you. If I have the opportunity to come back in Philippines I’ll surely book with her again.

Had a great experience. Sadly an emergency came up and I had to show up late, Venus was more than accommodating to the situation. This experience is worth it. You truly get a deeper look on what life in the Philippines is really like. The photos she takes were the icing on the cake. Great tour!
