What people are saying about Singapore

Our guide (her name was Fun) was, a whole lot of fun. But very knowledgeable about Singapore too. We sampled some Singaporean Hawker food. Yum. Visited a sky garden in a recently constructed city tower building. Went to a Buddhist temple, and plenty more sites. You got the impression that our guide was thinking about what we might be interested in, and tailored the conversation to suit. We now know much more about Singaporean history, but it was light and engaging. It was a small group on the tour and very personalised. We recommend the tour and our guide. A really enjoyable way to spend an afternoon in Singas. Actually, we looked at the clock and realised that we’d gone over the 3 hour mark by another 30 minutes. So we must have been enjoying ourselves! Thank you Fun (our guide)

great way to appreciate how beautiful and green Sentosa island is from a birds eye view. it’s about 30 minutes the entire activity but worth it.

Nice relaxing trip down the river on a nice bum boat. Good way to see some of the sights.

Nice to walk right past the ticket line and head up to the observation deck

Slow and leisurely with good explanations of what we were seeing.
