Great tour and fabulous guide
Leesa_B, May 2023
We had the best guide. Richard went into great detail on historical and cultural aspects of Singapore. Took us around the city explaining about the people, education, art, government, economy. Had best rice and chicken with sugarcane juice /lemon drink. The tea experience was amazing! Great tour, great guide!
