Corregidor, the island-fortress, is a 1½-hour ferry ride and 26 miles west from Manila. The Rock, as it became known during World War II, was the last Filipino-American bastion to fall to the Japanese.

Your tour includes a guided visit to the island's many silent guns and historic landmarks.

The cavernous Malinta Tunnel is a must-see -- it served as General Douglas MacArthur's headquarters during the siege. When MacArthur uttered his immortal (and unfulfilled) promise to return, he spoke of Corregidor. He never returned to Corregidor, but came to Leyte Bay, where he conceded he was "a little late."

Step into the tunnel for a stirring Sound & Light Show, and you will learn more about the incredible events of World War II, the Japanese occupation of the Philippines, the loss of life and the re-taking of Corregidor throughout the day.

Lunch will be served before the ferry ride back to Manila.

Notes:

Wear comfortable walking shoes.
