Overview
A tour dedicated to the sights, sounds, flavors and colors of Cebu’s southern countryside. Tour highlights include a visit to an authentic village in Carcar and a ride on a water buffalo.
What to Expect
Drive through Cebu’s coastal towns en route to Carcar, a community 40 kilometers south of Cebu. First stop is a gothic-inspired 16th century church in San Fernando town. Then enter Carcar town and visit a shrine in the hillside known as the Theotokos Shrine dedicated to Our Lady Mother of God.

Catch a glimpse of rural life in livelihood activities like shoemaking, delicacy cooking, woodcarving and basket weaving. Experience a carabao ride (water buffalo ride), a tricycle spin to a colorful market, learn how to weave a bamboo basket, and get the thrill from drinking fresh coconut wine. Afterwards, visit a beautiful ancestral home and the interesting church of St. Catherine of Alexandria in the town center before heading back to the city. Lunch will be served in a local restaurant.
