  • Entrance fee is affordable and includes souvenir and earphones, it was worth the price because the tour is very interactive and the guide is very knowledgeable. Modern museum and the tour was the most interesting and educational experience.
  • Very accommodating staff. Entrance fee is affordable and includes souvenir and earphones. Museum guide is extremely knowledgeable and eloquent.
  • 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!
  • Cheapest entrance fee is 120 pesos per head - it comes wiyh a headset, keychain and a booklet. Though a bit pricey compared to other museums itvwas worth the price because the tour is very interactive and the guide is very knowledgeable.

Where to stay in Cebu City

The most popular place to stay in Cebu City remains uptown, particularly around the university district near Junquera Street station. Here you'll find a good range of hotels, hostels, and guesthouses of varying quality, but with a well-established base level representing value for money. Further north, look along Dalan Osmena to find a good number of standard and luxury hotels located north and south of the roundabout. The downtown area has more closely knitted streets, with just a few guesthouses located along primarily residential roads.
