What you'll do

You'll get to Experience our culture, transportation, language, history, & our very own local dishes.

This Experience won't be the most comfortable of all but it aims for you to experience what it's like to be an everyday Cebuano.

First, we meet at Ayala Center Cebu, it's a large mall that pretty has literally everything.
It's a perfect meet-up point since it's very accessible & a great place to chill or roam while waiting if you arrive early.

Next, we head to Colon Street by a "Jeepney", our local mode of transportation and explore the busiest and oldest street of Cebu & try some street food.

Then, we'll head to Santo Niño Basilica, which gave Cebu a major role in our history.

After that, we'll head to Fort San Pedro for a Spanish & Filipino history and World War II history.

Finally, we ride back again in a "Jeepney" to Azul for dinner and will let you have a taste of our famous local food called "Tuslob Buwa" which we have to cook ourselves and have a unique tasting experience.

Hello! I'm Steven
A Cebu based Photographer, Designer, and Videographer.

Multimedia Arts is always been my passion, It doesn't really matter what type of event as long I have my gear, I will make whats normal to epic. I also love to travel and explore different unique places, not just for photo or video but also to feed my curious mind. I lived most of my life in Cebu and explored most of its beautiful locations and learned their different stories.

I consider myself street-smart if we talk about inside Cebu. In terms of experience, I also handle a different Airbnb Experience called "Cebu Photography Tour in Cebu Highlands"

And If you're bringing your own camera I can make use of my photography skills for you with no extra cost :)

Really enjoyed my time with Steven, very knowledgeable, easy to talk with and would not have experienced Cebu the same way on my own.

현지인 느낌으로 세부 시내랑 주요 관광지 그리고 거리의 숨겨진 맛집들을 돌아볼 수 있습니다. 넷플릭스에 나온 로컬 맛집도 다녀왔습니다. 해가 진 시간에 하는 투어라 그렇게 덥지도 않아서 좋았구요. 영어가 굉장히 유창하셔서 다른 게스트 분들이랑 얘기도 많이하고 소통도 잘 해주십니다. 가장 좋았던건 꼼꼼한 성격으로 케어해주셔서 신경쓸 일이 하나도 없었다는 점입니다. 호텔앞도 무서워서 못나가는 쫄보인데 생각없이 즐길 정도였습니다. 다만 투어는 걷는 과정이 좀 있어서 피곤하지않고 여유로운날 시간내서 하면 즐거울것 같습니다. 미국인 한분이 잠도못자고 나와서 투어 하시는데 정말 지쳐보이더라구요.

An excellent experience that we would highly recommend. Really enjoyed eating the street food and experiencing different places that we wouldn’t have been able to visit otherwise. The Jeepney part was so much fun & we all really loved this memory that we will treasure forever. Finally, the food at Azul was a meal we will always remember. Fantastic host & highly recommended experience - thank you Steven!!!!
