I haven't been back for the last 35 years. Thank you so much.

What you want may involve lots of money. One suggestion is to find a hotel for a couple days or so Manila. The hotel can arrange to meet you at the airport and escort you to their place.

Some of the classier hotels (not the places I usually use) have a tour desk or can advise you of the nearest travel facility to make your travel, tour and guide arrangements.

I was in Manila just 2 months ago, I was surprised and pleased with all of the good changes that has happened there since 12 months ago! New lighting in Manila (I stay in the Ermita area,) cleaner streets, new huge mall on Roxas and the meter taxi cabs actually used the meters!

Here is a couple of web addresses that may also be able to help you out.

and

I have never used these services, I just show up at the airport and hop in a taxi and head for town.

Good luck.

Thats cool your planning on going to the Philippines. I spent the month of May and diddent have a plan set out at all! The one piece of advice I have for you is get the Fu$k out of Manila. Fly to Cebu and start there! Buy the new lonly planet book on the Philippines and have a great time!! The diversity of the Philippines will blow your mind!! Do you dive at all? I will be back for Christmass and plan to dive south Leyte. Talk to some locals and ask them where their favorite beach is and trust me the locals know the good spots.
