So, I happily accept the task to do it since that would be really useful in sharing it with you all here through this travel blog, Exotic Philippines!
At first I thought that it will be just the 4 of us, I decided to just hire a taxi for the whole trip. But since they’re tagging along their friend and special someone, and it’s best to put us all in one car (to get to know each other) I hire a car rental instead – which is better.

Please note that I’ve made a 2 hour allowance since sometimes there are people that are in Filipino time (1 hour late) plus if you’re staying in Mactan Island, you might need that extra time. But if you’re in Cebu City an hour allowance for the travel time will be enough.
We actually finished the tour around 1 PM since we were just about 15 minutes in the Magellan's Shrine area. Though there are some areas that you can still visit, like the Mactan Shrine (especially if your hotel is in Mactan), we needed to end our Cebu tour before 3 pm since we needed to meet up with our boss. But it's very much doable if you want to drop Mactan Shrine.

DIY Cebu City Tour ContactsI know it should be DIY. You can take jeepneys and all, but there's no jeepney passing by the Taoist temple, you have to go for the taxi. After that though, you can totally take a jeepney but you have to be familiar with the route, which I want to share but thinking twice about it since I don't go much anymore in Cebu City anymore and there are times that they do change the jeepney routes.
Anyway, here are the contact details of the car rental we hired for this tour.
