Fantastic tour!
Doulla_T, May 2023
This was certainly one of the biggest highlights of my trip to Singapore. The food tour took place in three different cultural areas, which was very interesting to see. The food was amazing and extremely filling. I highly recommend not to book a huge meal for the evening of the tour! Daryl was a fantastic host and highly knowledgable.
Response from Host, May 2023
Sounds like an great experience having different culture food! Glad to hear you had a lovely time with Daryl. Until next time!
A fantastic foodie tour with a great guide
Nick81, May 2023
Pamela was a wonderful tour guide. She was knowledgeable about Singaporean history and cuisine and friendly and courteous to each tour participant. The food was fantastic and I would never have found so many great stalls and things to try without the great tour and especially the guide.
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you for the excellent review! we are glad you enjoyed every stall you went into. Until next time!

Response from Host, Feb 2023
Hi Richard we are happy you had a lovely time with us. Until next time!
Absolutely amazing!!
Dinesh_N, Jan 2023
Absolutely enjoyed the tour! Having a small group of 8 made it more personal. Our tour guide Su Ling was amazing! She had a proper route planned & was very organized. We had about 8-9 food stops in the 6 hour tour & every dish was delicious. She took us to local places that we would definitely not have found by ourselves. Su also talked to us about the history of Singapore, the different cultures etc & kept the tour constantly interesting. We ate so much through the tour that we all were in a happy state of food coma after! Excellent tour in every aspect. Thanks to Su Ling!!
A great day of tasting and fun!
Christy_D, Oct 2022
This tour was great! We tasted many different dishes and finished the tour very satisfied. Our guide, Su Ling, educated us about the different foods and also the different neighborhoods and cultures. She also sent an email after the tour with even more recommendations. I would definitely recommend this tour!
Response from Host, Oct 2022

Dan is the sweetest! He goes out of his way to help take care of the group. The food was delicious - just enough for a taste and not feeling overstuffed at the end. My point was to try new things, and I did! My most favorites were: the curry puff, kopi, teh, and murtabak! I'll be back for more!!
Response from Host, Feb 2020
Thank you for taking the time to write a review and the kind words to Dan, which we will pass along. We are happy o know you the tour and tastings just right and pleased to know you'll be back for more!!
Singapore food tour
davefunk1811, Feb 2020
Daryl was our guide and one of the best we ever had. We do food tours in most of the places we visit. This was one of the best food tours we have ever done. First stop was Soon Soon Huat and had curry puffs with chicken and carrot cake...both outstanding! Next was a stop which was a store that sold nuts and spices. we went upstairs and had a stuffed leaf with rice and pork inside...amazing, then a hidden gem that served the most amazing Laska. A bus ride to the Hawker center and Daryl took us around and pointe out the great options and all of us ordered different dishes from different stalls. Daryl took our order and he went and brought everything to our table..great food. Next up a tour of the Arab Street and a restaurant that served Halal food. It was great. last was Little India for Dosa..very good also. Daryl took us to where the cabs stopped and off we went back to the hotel very happy and very full. Do the tour, you won't be disappointed.

Elizabeth H, Jan 2018
Absolutely GREAT!! We were the only ones on the tour so it was actually private. The guide, Boo, is a really nice guy, intelligent, coherent, spoke great English with only a faint accent. He took us around showing us tiny little local places serving special dishes, most of which we loved. We travelled by public bus and on foot. He was very considerate of us, looking after us very well, taking into consideration any difficulties we may have. He told us of the history of Singapore, answered all our questions and we had interesting talks at every stop. WE LOVED IT and recommend the tour and especially Boo.

Daniel P, July 2017
I have done food tours all over the world, from the US to Europe and many in Asia. This was without doubt the best food tour that I have done. I can't say enough great things about Su Ling. She took us to areas of Singapore that I have never been to even though I have been to Singapore a few times to restaurants that I wouldn't have ventured into on my own. What I particularly liked was that Su Ling was able to weave a historical current through the tour, covering the history of Singapore and the context in which each of the many different ethnic groups made their way to Singapore and made it their home. This set the scene for the numerous foods which we tried. All of the food was of excellent quality and absolutely delicious. There was no shortage of it either so come hungry! Bravo Su Ling for a wonderful tour, this was the highlight of my trip and I will be recommending you to my colleagues and friends visiting.

Bernhard, Oct 2017
Die Tour und der Guide war absolut empfehlenswert. Wir haben eine Stunde länger gemacht als gebucht. Kann es jeden uneingeschränkt empfehlen und würde es jederzeit wieder buchen.
