Overview

When you’re exploring a district as historic as Manila’s Intramuros, it pays to choose a traditional form of transport. Soak up the sights, discover the history, and even ride along the walls on this small-group bicycle tour with a difference: bamboo bikes. After choosing a style and size that suits you, tour sites including Fort Santiago, Plaza Roma, and the Puerta del Parian gate, then finish with some Filipino snacks.

What to Expect

Meet us at Bambike HQ located in Casa Manila Complex. It is a copy of an 1850 house, modeled after Spanish colonial architecture. Best to come at least 30 minutes before the tour as our Bambike guides will help you choose the perfect Bambike. There are a wide variety of Bambikes for different rider builds and each Bambike is unique! We will begin the briefing on how the Bambikes are made and the local community that it supports. We will then head out on Bambikes (bamboo bikes) through the major historical and cultural attractions within Intramuros! The sites we will visit includes the Fort Santiago, Plaza Roma, Puerta del Parian and many more. Our guides are very knowledgeable about Philippine history, cultures, stories, jokes! One of our Bambike ride highlights is an Intramuros wall ride! Filipino refreshments are available back at our HQ that will complement your educational workout.

Yes I believe they do have tandem bikes, but best to check direct with Bambikes

i suggest if you're still at the planning stage of your trip to maybe look into learning how to ride a bike. i'm sure half a day should be more than enough to cover this provided you have a capable teacher. for adults, it is... More
