I was already aware that the Vigan tour could really be cheaper by taking tricycle rides which is most of the time could even be cheaper that the Kalesa Tours - but ofcourse Kalesa or carriage tour has its different glam that cost the additional). Kalesa tours usually cost around Php800.00 that time; I spoke to one of the driver canvasing a much lower rate for the three of us. Luckily we got a tricycle that agreed that we only pay base on the basic fare with a little additional for the waiting time.
Our tour starts at Bantay Church and bell tower in Bantay, Vigan City. The Bantay church has a postcard perfect view attracting a lot of photographers and tourist. I remember one of my brides took their pre-nuptial photos here.
According to Rowilda this store was built by her parents in the year 1977 where they uses techniques and skill that they acquired from their ancestors.

End of our tricycle tour! We have had enough experience, new learnings and a lot of photos. The tour starts at around 1:00 PM and Ended at 5:00 PM the Php 400.00 seems to be a little lower for the efforts and waiting time but the tricycle driver mentioned that the food treat and the company covers the rest.
