The 3G: God, Gold, & Glory Tour is our basic tour program and takes 3 hours to complete. It covers the basics of Philippine history and culture, particularly the foundation of the Philippines as a colony through Spain’s conquest of our islands. We go through the entire Spanish Colonial history of the Philippines and explain why the Spanish colonial experience is the root of many Filipino cultural idiosyncrasies. Basically, this tour will tell you why the Filipinos are the way they are today.
The 3GX: God, Gold, & Glory EXTENDED Tour on the other hand, is our best-selling program and takes 4.5 hours to complete.

It is everything the basic 3G Tour is, and more! This is the tour to take if you love history.
