    Geraldine was our guide and the experience was great. She allowed us time to look around and stop and have a drink. She was very knowledgeable and informative. A tour worth doing.

    Colorful place with interesting history.

    The group was small which was good. Guide was good and knowledgeable but seemed rushed, the shop keepers didnt seem to know that their stall was part of the tour. Would have liked to have an Indian guide who had personal experience

    Little India was great and our guide was really informative! We loved walking through all the back streets that sometimes may too daunting to go down if you weren't with a tour group! After we finished our tour, we enjoyed having lunch at the Tekka Centre!

    Very informative guide. Nice tour.

    I wanted it to be more about the Indian population in Singapore and less about India itself.

    It was hot and humid, we were pooped, but our superstar guide Wui Wui was full of charm and energy throughout. From the Hindu temple to the markets to the strange fruits to the shops selling spices and even clothes direct from the sub continent, Wui Wui had our attention with her enthusiasm. We enjoyed every minute of it, but welcomed the chance to end the morning with lunch in an air conditioned Indian restaurant.

    This was excellent. I joined a group of five women lead by our great guide, Helena, for a lovely morning wandering around Little India. There were many interesting facts and sights and a well-paced tour. I was also the 'sari demonstration' model. All good fun and a great staff. The tour ended with a sweetmeat tasting. Lovely way to spend a morning.

    A great way to learn about the cultures of Singapore. However, it is very tiring and hard on your back as there is a lot of standing around whilst you listen to the very informative and knowledgeable guide. Not suitable for children.

    This was a wonderful tour. Helena was so knowledgeable about Singapore's history, and history of the Indian people in Singapore and their customs and traditions, as well as the Hindu religion. We learned so much.
