You will be picked up at your hotel at an appointed time and transferred to the boat terminal for your trip to Corregidor Island. At the island, you will be met by your guide who will bring you on a tour of the island on board a ‘tranvia’. A rolling tour of the island introduces you to the three geographical sectors of the island: Topside, Middleside and Bottomside, each of which had served its purpose during the war. Brief stops are made at Topside, the core of the island where the parade ground, the ruins of barracks, Cine Corregidor and headquarter are located.
Alight at the Pacific War Memorial which also houses a museum, and climb up the old Spanish lighthouse for panoramic views of the island, Manila Bay, and the surrounding seas. Know more of the defense artillery of the island when you visit the gun emplacements and batteries, and witness some moving moments leading to the fall and surrender of the Filipino and American soldiers in a light and sound show in Malinta Tunnel, a bomb-proof tunnel which served as headquarters of Gen. Douglas MacArthur before fleeing the country.
