According to Chan, the tour within Mactan Shrine is composed of different stations where a narrator will explain what is shown in every station.
The tour will start with a story about the “Babaylan,” a pre-colonial Filipino shaman who communicates, appeases, or harnesses the spirits of the dead and the spirits of nature.
There will also be palm reading; a “wish booth”; an area where one can hear the history of pre-colonial tattoos and a tattoo session; a storytelling about arnis history; and a performance at the Battle of Mactan.
The package also includes a dinner while tour participants watch the heroic battle between the warriors of Lapulapu and the soldiers of Ferdinand Magellan.
