    Loved hearing more about Singapore living than just visiting the central tourist spots. Nelson was our excellent guide and showed and explained so much. He made visiting the Tampines more interesting than I thought that part of the tour would be. We visited the beautiful mosque at Kampong Glam and he explained how the different cultures co exist happily in Singapore

    Very interesting for people interested in war history. The guide was very knowledgeable which made the tour. People have to be aware, that one only passes by locations and not actually visits them

    Guide is good but minibus transport too old and cramped. Perhaps too much time spent in Changi and not enough time in Kampong Glam. Only about 30mins.

    We enjoyed the tour. Our guide and driver were friendly, informative and knowledgeable. There were only 6 of us on the mini bus tour which allowed for more interaction and time at the various stops on the tour.

    I was disappointed that the Changi chapel and museum were closed.This was the main reason I booked the tour only to be told while on the tour.I should have been told at booking.It was misleading

    Unfortunately Changi War Museum is closed for renovations, Apparently it was announced back in January, however you do get a drive around Changi Beach. Lesson learnt by me research to make sure attractions are open.

    Again trip was good but not enough time at changi museum. Guide was good.

  • 29-Dec-2017

    A great tour for anyone interested in the history of Singapore. Very knowledgeable guide and I would do this tour again.

  • 06-Dec-2017

    Excellent tour, very informative, the guide was extremely good and was full of knowledge of Singapore and the areas we visited

    A must do to pay respects and as a reminder how luck one is now . Highly moving. Whilst you can't take photos in the museum, there's really no need as the articles and photos in the museum will stay with you forever. Allow a minimum of 1 hour. Kristna was very informative.
