After watching numerous of the WW-2 movies about Corregidor "Cry Havoc", and "They were Expendable" with John Wayne; I decided to make a visit to the Island of Corregidor in June 2019. My interest was seeing the island where history was made and the neighboring Bataan Peninsula. I had certain places that I wanted to see on the island. The ferry from Manila docked at Corregidor at the north dock. This is the exact dock that Lt JG John Bulkeley on PT-41 transported Gen Douglas MacArthur and his family to Mindanao in 1942. The dock is constructed of concrete with rebar and you can see where it has been repaired numerous times from the war damage of both sides. But, I wanted to walk to the end of it slowly and look back at the island to see what Gen MacArthur must have seen and felt when he stepped onto the PT boat. From the end of the dock you can see Cavite and Mariveles. The trams that give the tour are rapid paced so I was unable to spend much time near the islands north dock. My next point of interest was the Malinta Tunnel east entrance. Good tour but the tunnel is darkened for the video effects and many tripping hazards from old rail tracks down the middle. If you tour try to be near the front so you can hear the tour guide. My interest from the 3rd tunnel lateral on the north side from the east entrance. This was the Headquarters lateral for MacArthur and Gen Wainwright. Several of the Laterals have life-sized people and scenes to exhibit the events of the time. The experience is heighten by the flash and thunder of simulated bomb explosions, the soft hushed murmurs of people talking. Wish I had more time in the tunnel itself, but it is a tour in and out . Lunch for the tour was on the Islands only hotel, it was very very hot day the restaurant and loads of cold water and a buffet type food After I attempted to follow the Bataan Death March route from Mariveles back to Angeles City, it is not well marked and the road is under reconstruction. I want to go back and attempt that route after doing more research and putting some Lat's and Longs into my Garmin. "When I return", I want to spend a night on the islands hotel and see in more detail what is called TOPSIDE. This place was on my bucket list and it was emotional to walk where the US soldiers were from December 1941 till March 1942. The tour guide had excellent knowledge of the island and the period in history that I was interested in.

For 200 pesos, i can say that it needs a little improvement especially that the tunnel is dark and not inside.. Be sure to bring water and fan inside..

Nevertheless, the experience is somehow worth it as the tunnel show gives you a glimpse of what transpired during that time.

Visited last July 10 with the hubby. Was happy to get the lights and sound tour inside the tunnel since it wasn’t part of the tram tour. you can really feel what happened in there. there’s even some guys who cried while having the presentation. its one of the most memorable part of our tour. The sounds was a bit unclear; they could improve but still excellent ♥️ will book a night tour next time to explore the lateral 🥰

Went there last May with Family and travelled with my 5-year old niece. The Lights & Sounds show is not part of the Tram tour so we had to pay an additional fee to get in. But glad that we decided to pay that additional amount! The tour gave us an overview of the history of the tunnels.

But to be able to experience the tunnel better, be sure to go fo the night tour wherein you will explore the inner parts of the tunnel, go through low cave-like pathways and walk through carved limestones with just the illumination of your flashlight. We even got to walk in the pitch-black darkness! Our guide asked us to turn off all our flashlights! Be sure to go to Malinta Tunnel while in Corregidor!

We went there as a family and we got the walking tour. Funny but with a ferry full of travellers, we were the only one who took the walking tour, and rest took the tram ride tour. Our guide explained that the walking tour will also go to all the places the tram ride tour guests will visit, plus a few more which they wont be able to go to - the hospital, the officers houses which were already occupied by giant balete trees, the mountainside trek were monkeys were nearby watching our every move. our last stop was the Malinta tunnel which was preserved and maintained so tourists, especially Filipinos can look back and learn from our past. For those who are able to walk or hike, I would suggest you try and experience the "walking tour". It is cheaper but very rewarding.

One of the must see sites in the island of Corregidor is the Malinta tunnel, a bomb-proof storage complex and soldier’s bunker which also contained a 1000-bed hospital for the wounded Filipino-American troops during WW2. This 250meter long tunnel completed in 1932 have 24 lateral tunnels made of concrete was built by US Army Corps of Engineers to protect its personnel in the event of an assault. Today, to better understand and appreciate the sacrifices, hardships and rigours of a war, a Sound and Light show is part of the tour of the island. The name Malinta came when the engineers constructing the tunnel found the place to be home of leeches. Linta is the translation in Tagalog language of Leeches.

The tunnel show offers a decently unbiased report of the heroism and courage displayed during the siege.
