A Very Nice Singapore Introduction
David_J, Jan 2023
Grayson did an excellent job showing us several aspects of the city center. I saw elements I would not have seen on our own. It was a well spent 4 hours. It was organized to adjust to our interests, which I really appreciated. I’ve tried to add photos several times to no avail.
Take this tour
Joanne_H, Jan 2023
We loved this tour, Kenny was an amazing guide and gave us such a good insight into the life and history of Singapore and its people. He was a lovely man and it was a pleasure to have him as our guide. It was great to have the tour first before we ventured off by ourselves as he gave us so much information about Singapore.
Thank you Eliza.
Barbara_L, Jan 2023
Eliza was our tour guide and we couldn’t have asked for anyone better. She was an absolute mine of information and made the tour both fun and interesting. We learned so much from her and were taken to many places of interest.
A Must!

Jack, our guide was absolutely amazing! We were able to see and experience so much in a short period of time. Definitely a must!
Great overview of the city
Rachel_D, Dec 2022
I enjoyed seeing the main sites and some less known sites with our tour guide. I had hoped to spend more time at the Gardens by the Bay but the tour guide rushed us through it, almost running, due to potential rain. Although the guide wasn’t great, the tour and places he took us to were great. He didn’t seem to be fully invested in our experience.
Great tour
Flora_K, Dec 2022

Singapore highlights with a difference
Adeline_S, Nov 2022
We spent a most enjoyable 3 plus hours with Leo our guide. We found him to be very knowledgeable not only about Singapore and its history but also about the trees and plants we saw, and his general knowledge of world affairs refreshing. He tailored out tour to what we wanted to see as well as the hidden gems of Singapore. We would definitely recommend a private tour with him it was most enlightening. Thank you Leo we really appreciated it. Thank you Adeline and Brenda (Perth- Australia)
Awesome tour.
Linda_I, Nov 2022
Leo is an exceptional guide. He is knowledgeable about all things Singapore, including the history and the future of Singapore. He made the tour educational, interesting and fun. I highly recommend this tour.
A memorable tour
Oluwatosin_D, Nov 2022
My friend and I had a wonderful tour led by Mr. Ang who made our experience so memorable. He was so knowledgeable about the history of Singapore and even brought along learning and visual tools which really helped. To top it off, Mr. Ang brought us personalized gifts including a hand held fan to help relieve the heat in Singapore (I’ve never experienced this level of thoughtfulness on a tour before)! I was truly touched by his kindness and enthusiasm. Thank you so much Mr. Ang!
Great intro to Singapore!
James_M, Nov 2022
HJ took us to many of Singapore’s iconic sites…the Merlion park, around the colonial area and its museums, Chinatown, the Buddhist Temple, a hawker center, etc. We got to see a lot in 4 hours and learned about Singapore’s origins and growth
Best Tour in Singapore!
Melissa_D, Nov 2022
Our guide, KK, was the BEST! He provided us with history of Singapore, while combining it with the tour. He explained it well and we really enjoyed it. It was a hot day, so he utilized taxis and the train to get us around the city. We even stopped for lunch in a market that was a unique and fun food experience. We enjoyed our tour with KK and I have already recommended him to our friends who are traveling to Singapore. If you are interested in how Singapore came to be and why, while exploring the city, KK is your guy. We had the best day! Thanks, KK...we now know the secret!
A true local’s perspective & highlights
Linda_A, Oct 2022
In a short amount of time, I saw several of the highlights of Singapore and learned a lot about its history. The behind-the-scenes portions of the tour really gave a flavor that I think most tourists would miss out in. KK Ang was an excellent guide - very knowledgeable and engaging.

The story telling and...

The story telling and strolling through the history of Singapore and experiencing the life of the average Singaporean was fantastic. A history lesson in a modern experience.
