Wow! this is one serious stunt by GRAB! After the GRAB Horse promotion in Baguio early this year, they are bringing back the GRAB horse here in Manila, but the difference is that 2-3 person can ride on it in a “kalesa” or carriage.
The GRAB Kalesa service will be only available in INTRAMUROS this August 20-21, 2016. The pick up point starts at Plaza de Roma Fountain from 2-5pm only. The GRAB Kalesa can transport you around Intramuros. And you can only book a ride via the GRAB app.
You can use the GRAB Kalesa as your transport OR your tour guide around Intramuros. The ride will take around for 30minutes going around the walled city.
Here’s the info they sent via email
GrabKalesa na sa Sabado!Ang sasakyang Kalesa ay nagsilbing paraan ng transportasyon noong unang panahon hanggang ngayon. Karamihan sa mga ito ay matatagpuan sa Intramuros, Manila - na dinadayo kadalasan ng mga turista.
