Bambike x Kate Was Here = Discount Intramuros Tours!

In episode 10 of Kate Was Here on Kumu, I talked about why Intramuros is a classic go-to destination, whether you’re a foreign traveler visiting Manila for the first time or a local looking to rediscover Philippine culture.

My guest was Bryan McClelland, founder of Bambike, Bambike Eco Tours, and Batala Bar, just some of the popular joints on Real St., Intramuros. We talked about how his businesses powered through the pandemic, how Bambike supported medical frontliners in 2020, and why the Bambike (bamboo bike) has won numerous accolades since the first prototype was built in 2009.

If you tuned in to the livestream via Plus Network on Kumu, you’ll know that we made an instant collaboration on the show: Bambike x Kate Was Here! For the month of November, you’ll get 30% off Bambike Eco Tours if you use the promo code “katewashere” (small caps, no spaces) on their website. If you’re already in their Intramuros headquarters and you weren’t able to book a slot online, you may book a tour on the spot (depending on availability) and still get 30% by yelling, “Kate was here!” at the door. Okay, I was kidding. You don’t have to yell.

Bambike Eco Tours offers two main tours: Intramuros Experience, a 2.5-hour bike tour around Intramuros, including the famous Fort Santiago. Price is ₱1,699 per Bambiker. If you have only one hour to spare, get the Intramuros Express Tour for only ₱999 per person. Get any of these tours for 30% off until November 30, 2021 if you use my coupon code, katewashere.

If you’d rather go on your own pace and path, you may rent a Bambike for ₱200/hour. My coupon does not apply to this option. They follow a list of safety protocols, which you’ll find on their website.

And when you’re done, regain those calories lost by getting a scoop of ice cream or local craft beers at Batala Bar. While you’re at it, check out the eco-friendly shop by the Philippine Artisan Trade.

Bambike Eco Tours is located at Plaza San Luis Complex, General Luna, St. Intramuros, Manila. For more info, visit or follow them on IG @bambike, @bambikeecotours, and @batalabar. You may also purchase your very own Bambike, which comes in a variety of models and sizes.
