    They didn't contact me and missed the tour. Now, I should pay for a tour that I didn't take. Additionally, the amount paid was higher.

    I think this tour was let down by the dinner at the Copthorn Hotel. There were 7 of us and we were led to a nice table by the river. We did not know the other people and there was an awkward silence.
    The meal was terrible, cold and tasteless. For less money a meal in a Hawker centre would be amazing. The rest of the tour was great although we hardly had any interaction with the guide.

    a very relaxing tour. Grayson was a lovely guide, very knowledgeable and professional , made the tour one to remember. River cruise enjoyable, visit to raffles Long Bar for Singapore sling a bucket list tick. All queues avoided!!

    we were picked up on time dropped at another hotel where we had meal at table outside by water,very nice food was ok certainly better then going by other reviews although all 3 courses were dumped in front of us at once.taken by bus to quay where boarded bum boat for cruise around bay which was beautiful with the lights.then back to bus to raffles hotel where there was a long line to get into long bar but because we
    were in group tour got to by pass that which was wonderful.got there at 8.40 so no time to go to gift shop which was a pain but great atmosphere in the bar.had our singapore sling then another which took ages so sorry to tour guide who got held up overall a great night.dropped back in street beside hotel.dont no whether that was because guide and driver were annoyed because we were late and no aircon turned on in bus either.and guide didnt speak or say goodbye when he jumped out so i know what my guess would be. cant blame guests for slow bar service.but we didnt let that ruin a good night.

    Our host for the night was great I cannot recall his name unfortunately. Dinner was ordinary but wonderful spot outside on edge of river. Some drinks and food were very slow to arrive. Boat trip was splendid some good photo opportunities. Raffles was excellent [not suitable for anyone with peanut allergies!]. It was wonderful to be in the tour and not have to wait in the long queue to get inside. Overall I enjoyed this tour if you want a foodie experience you will not get it from the dinner. As my hotel was next door to Raffles I stayed on and walked home. You can stay if you wish and are happy to make your own way home. Queue was still long to get in when I left Raffles. For me going to Raffles to have a Singapore Sling was on my bucket list so nothing else really matter apart from relaxing in the serenity of a hotel which is an institution!

    The evening began when we dined outside along the river. It was a nice way to start. We then went to see the Marina Bay Sands Hotel and we went up the elevator to the observation deck (54th floor?)where a wonderful view of Singapore at night was all around us. We spent some time at Burgis Street shopping which was not particularly exciting, and finished off the evening at the Long Bar home of the Singapore Sling. It is also home to Not only $32 Singapore Slings, but also $15 beers!!! WOW, we felt it was a bit pricey, but loved throwing peanut shell on the floor.

    We where 11 people on the tour. We drove 10min to a hotel at the river where we had a lovely meal outside at the river watching the sunset. Drinks are very expansive so we just had our water which came with the meal. Plenty of time we watche the Xmas display in and outside the hotel. Than it was time to Buggi night markets. If you don't like little streets, than next door is a big major Shopping center. Very nice to escape the hot humidity. After that off to Raffels for a Singapore Sling. We had our tickets booked without but decided to go after all with everybody. My husband does not drink it was possible to see that wonderful place and only purchase 1 cocktail. The most expansive one I ever had. But the surroundings reminded you on an old movie set. My husband was not too well for long walking due to a reasant operation so this trip gave us still time to enjoy Singapore by night and a authentic dinner and a bit markets for 30min.The tour gide gave us incredible comentrie about the how people live in Singapore. For this price it was worth every penny.

    Dinner was just a simple meal. Tour guide was good and provided an interesting historical narration of the city while we drove through. Then took us to a place to get a view of the city at night which was appreciated as it rained the night before and was not able to get good pictures. Thanks for doing that.
