  • The newly renovated Casa Gorordo is better than the previous one. More enriching, more interactive and now focuses not only on the house and Gorordo family as well but the role of the Parian in early Cebu
  • Beautifully remodeled, and the tour was the most interesting and educational experience I had in the Philippines. They do a really good job!
  • I was surprised by how much I liked going here. For a minimal fee, you get a short tour of the whole house which includes the services of a tour guide, a film showing, audio clips, etc. They even give you a souvenir, ear phones, and a free drink (bottled water or calamansi juice).
  • Much better than we had anticipated. Very lively and knowledgeable tour guide. Good information about Cebu's history. Very educational. Topped off with good snacks and excellent coffee in the lunchroom. Many native products for sale. Definitely one of the highlights of Cebu's historical sites.
  • This old colonial house is well-maintained. The place has retained much of its details and old furniture. There's even original copies of Rizal's Noli in one bookcase. The guided tour is informative and well-organized. They also have a shop and cafe. You must visit this place when in Cebu City.
