The Cebu Twin City Tour is also known as such because it combines the attractions of both Cebu City and Lapu Lapu City in Mactan. This is a highly-recommended tour for those who are first-timers in Cebu because it gives one a glimpse of Cebu of old through tour attractions like the Parian Monument, Magellans’s Cross, Basilica Minore del Sto. Nino and Fort San Pedro. At the same time, it also makes one appreciate Cebu of present, which features business districts like the Cebu Business Park, Asia Town IT Park, and the upcoming mega-development that is Cebu’s South Reclamation Properties.

The tour normally runs for 6 hours, and already includes transportation, the services of a tour guide, all entrance fees as well as buffet lunch at a local restaurant. Go for private tours when going around Cebu, or if it’s a seat-in tour (meaning you will be joined with other guests), please make sure that the transportation is licensed, and that a tour guide is licensed as well. Sure, locals and anyone can just about show you around, but nothing beats comprehensive info and 5-star service that licensed tour guides are trained to give.
The Cebu Twin City Tour is a good jump off point or ending point if you combine it with our activities in the same day. For example, one can end the tour with a shopping experience around Ayala Center Cebu, or at SM City Cebu. Another option would be to cap it off with a Sky Adventure Experience at Crown Regency in Fuente. Normally, a package includes 1 Edge Coaster Ride and 1 Sky Walk activity per person. The option is yours whether you would to end the tour with buffet dinner in Crown Regency Fuente’s 39th floor or call it a night after that exhilarating experience.

Lunch which is served during the Cebu Twin City Tour is Filipino buffet. However, those who want to just savor the flavors only a lechon roasted in Cebu can provide, the option of ditching buffet over ala carte at lechon places like CNT, Rico’s Ayers or Zubuchon are available.
When shopping for souvenirs during the tour, go for those that are distinctly Cebu—dried mangoes! Now there is also a caboodle of dried fruits available for you to bring home like dried soursop, dried pineapple, tamarind balls and the like. Why, dried mangoes are now dipped in dark chocolate too! Other Cebuano delicacies worth bringing home after your Cebu Twin City Tour are rosquillos, otap, and dried squid. For the more adventurous ones, head on to Taboan to buy dried fish straight from Bantayan. That said, if you still have plans to go elsewhere, then get your stuff from the groceries so you can avoid the fishy smell that sticks to your clothes when shopping at Taboan.
