    Me and my family recently visited Singapore. One of the tours we did was with Boo Gee Soo. He was a very friendly guy who kept us entertained the whole trip. There wasnt a moment we felt the presence of silence or awkwardness because of his open nature. He was keen to know more about us and besides tell more about himself aswell, which was one of the main reasons the tour felt amazing. Out of all the attractions we visited and the tours we did, we still find Gee Soo's tour the best because there were places you normally wouldnt visit. Visiting huge public attractions is nice but visiting local places has its own beauty and attraction. He was also open to join in for lunch with us, normally guides wont join you because of the difference in our eating habits and culture but he was completely fine with it. His energy to show us was like a child showing their first artwork to their mom, which showed us that how much he liked his job. He ended the day with the same smile he started his tour with.

  • 23-Apr-2023

    This was our first trip to Singapore so we booked a 5 hour tour with Hello Singapore. Our tour guide, Gee Soo Boo was fantastic. He put together an itinerary that highlighted the beauty and diversity of Singapore. Gee shared with the us the history of Singapore as well as what it is like to live in this beautiful city. We had lunch in Chinatown and it was great. The tour involved walking which was fine as it was a beautiful day in Singapore. Gee was courteous, gracious and very attentive to his guests. I would highly recommend Hello Singapore and Gee.

  • 17-Mar-2023

    Kwan was amazing. We learned so much about Singapore and its culture on this tour. Kwan was knowledgable, warm, and fun.

  • 08-Mar-2023

    The experience was 5/5 excellent! I can’t think of anything to improve. Our guide was so knowledgeable and caring. Gee soo shaped a very personalized tour for our small group. I would most definitely recommend him to anyone visiting Singapore ! Thank you so much Gee Soo for a wonderful day! Thank you Bernard for safely taking us and picking us up from all our stops.

  • 08-Mar-2023

    Kwang Wei was an excellent guide on our tour. Nice van arrived on time and took us around Singapore. We requested a hawkers market tor lunch and it was GREAT! So happy we did this!

  • 02-Mar-2023

    Richard was a fantastic guide. We saw so much and he did a great job of explaining everything we saw and even included a trip to market to try out some of the local delicacies. He even took pictures of us with his camera and ours and emailed the pictures he took back top us.

  • 02-Mar-2023

    I enjoyed hearing about Singapore from a life-long resident, our guide Kwang Wei, whose enthusiasm and love for the city were evident. We wanted to experience some highlights after disembarking from a cruise and going to the airport, and we really felt that this tour was the most convenient way to be introduced to the city. Having a private guide and driver allowed us to fashion the tour to our needs and our specific interests. The guide and driver were excellent and caring. The driver always picked us up promptly so that we didn't waste time waiting for us. The guide was very polite and watched out for us in all situations. We had a full and enjoyable day.

  • 16-Feb-2023

    Kwang Wei was the highlight. Energetic, friendly, full of interesting information. He made the trip. We provided information in advance as to what we were interested in regarding the tour and the flexibility exhibited was great.

  • 12-Feb-2023

    This trip was absolutely fantastic! My friend and I booked the 5-hour tour because she has some difficulty walking. Our guide was Bibi and driver Bernard - she was outstanding and a perfect fit for my friend and Bernard a terrific driver. We both grow orchids so we started at the Orchid Garden, a definite must-see! I had been there twice before but Bibi was so knowledgeable that I learned plenty. Then we went to Little India and Orchard Rd, then drove to see the Merlion. Bibi was very well prepared and brought a cane seat for my friend to use and then keep. Highly recommend, especially for anyone who is mobility impaired or has limited time and wants to see specific things. A great time, would definitely do this again!

  • 12-Feb-2023

    Daryl was an amazing guide. He is so well prepared, not only in history, but also in current affairs, finance and economics. He helped us choose where to prioritize and took us to places that we would otherwise not visited that resulted in a pleasant discovery and memory. The tour company contacted us ahead of the date to collect info and prepare a tour suited to our interests. Well Done!
