This is a great tour of Singapore,we saw a large temple,had lunch by the water and the guide was great.The war memorial was a very good lesson about war,We saw a very big temple had lunch by the water and our guide was fantastic.I recommend this tour when you go to Singapore,the Gardens by the bay are spectacular.The indoor gardens under the domes are also something to marvel at,all in all a great tour by a great company Take some water with you as it gets very hot n humid..Michael from Sydney Australia.
This was our second visit to the Gardens By the Bay and we loved it just as much as we did the first time. Our cameras were clicking constantly throughout the day. This is a must for all who visit Singapore.
This was a really lovely tour. The visit to Kranji War Memorial was especially moving. Changi Prison should actually be said to be the museum not the prison which is still in use as a prison!! We has a lovely luncha dn the gardens by the bay was a lovely end to the day. The guide was really good and he was very knowledgable about all the places. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Singapore.
Very knowledgeable guide. Had a nice day. Kranji war memorial and Changi museum were moving and fascinating. Could have done with more time at Changi as there are lots of artifacts and a lot to read. Lunch was good and we also enjoyed the temple. Gardens on the Bay were stunning. Perhaps could have done without seeing every public housing development on the island but it was a very good introduction to Singapore and gave an insight into how people live today as well as to the historical context.
This tour was really good. Taken on a good trip around the island and also included a Buddhist temple which was wonderful. The lunch which was provided was beautiful. Lots of food for everyone and very tasty. This is a great trip and I recommend highly. We concluded our trip at the Gardens by the Bay and enjoyed the last explorations ourselves. Great tour and well worth the money paid.
The garden is amazing, day or night, and well worth spending the time there. We were happy with our admission tickets to the two conservatory domes, worth it and made it easy for us to just enter as we avoided the ticket queues. We were picked up from our hotel at 8.30am so that was handy but I think it would have been cheaper for us to get public transport as there are trains and/or buses that take you there and would have only cost around $1.30 SD. Also, alot of time was wasted in the morning because we were picked up then taken to a centre where all the other buses dropped off their passengers and we had to wait at least half an hour before boarding our final bus to take us to our destination. It was a little chaotic and noisy and took to long, I think.
PICK UP AND GARDENS BY THE BAY EXCELLENT
We had an amazing day as we are florist in England so this trip was great for us, We managed to do all the domes and the gardens as it was not too busy as it was a week day, took lots of photos and have wonderful memories, we also went in the evening to see the light show on our own that ,also that was amazing..
Gardens by the bay , fantastic at night , bum boat ride great , tour bus great, all in all fantastic value for money, although a little rushed for the meal voucher.
The war memorial is a solemn place to honor those who fought in WWII. Very well kept. The prison museum has a lot of history to read, allowing you to understand the conditions the people faced at the time. The garden is a great place to spend an entire day - it is at the end of the tour, so you can opt to stay there instead of taking the bus back to your hotel. I highly advise you stay and spend time here, and besides you can also walk over the bridge to get to the Marina Bay Sands for even more sightseeing.
I had the good fortune of having Mr. Foo as the guide for this and the Pernankan tours. As a lot of reviewers here agree, he is a great wealth of information.
Great tour of the island with a lovely lunch included. Attractions were interesting however we were given 45 minutes at the Kranji War Memorial which was way too long. 20 minutes was more than enough. The other 25 minutes should have gone on Gardens By The Bay as there was only 20 minutes allowed there. We ended up staying and getting a taxi back later as it is kind of pointless only going for 20 minutes. The tour guides commentary flowed nicely and was interesting to listen to. A great full day tour.
This tour was a real highlight of my Singapore trip - exceptional value for money and being a single traveller, it was a treat being able to see the city by night - Gardens by the Bay light show and the Bum Boat ride were stand outs.
We were very happy with this tour. The organisation in Singapore was perfect. Very happy with the whole exercise. And the Gardens by the Bay are truly beauiful and stunning.
Great tour and Joseph our guide was excellent. We stayed at the Gardens to see the Christmas Lights which were amazing.
Unfortunately our guide/host did not provide us with much information on how we should set about viewing the Gardens. Thankfully, the staff at the Gardens Information Desk were most helpful and told us exactly what we should do and what we could see.
The Gardens itself were superb. The 2 main attractions, the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest were fantastic. The Christmas theme around the Flower Dome was beautiful. Our only regret was that we were not able to re-visit the Gardens after dark when all the Christmas lights and other illuminations were switched on.
Another fantastic evening guided tour worth taking. Garden by the bay – amazing, an absolute must do. Even provided meal, how nice. Basically you will get to know most of the areas while doing open bus ride (Fun ) and then you can go back to whichever places you fancy. We did this tour on the same evening we arrived in Singapore and I am so glad we did it that way. Boat ride to finish it off was so nice. Make sure you do the boat ride; Singapore by evening/night time is so beautiful and colorful. You wouldn’t want to go back to your hotel. Money very well spent.
This tour wax excellent. Out tour guide was very knowledgable.
The trip to Kranji was very moving and lovely to see how our soldiers have been remembered.
The trip to the Changing memorial was very relevant to me ax my 4 uncles were in there and I was able to see their names in the book.
Lunch at the restaurant by the sea wax very good ,great range of food and very well presented.
Gardens by the bay was a bit rushed but at least we got yo go there in the limited time we had in Singapore.
Great Tour would recommenf
On time and excellent transfer. Avoided the hustle and bustle of Singapore's public transport system. It was cheaper to purchase from Viator than to purchase from The Gardens Ticket office and included one way transfer.
An excellent value trip lasting a full day with a very knowledgable an interesting guide (named Foo). The morning was taken up with a tour of the western and north western side of the island. The Kranji War memroial is beautiful and poignant at this time of the year. I proudly bought my poppy there. The next stop was the Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery, a surprise as it wasn't mentioned in the itinery but for me the highlight of the day. The 13.8 metre 55 ton Buddah is an awe inspiring sight and the many Monestry buildings are beautiful. On to a very tasty lunch in Sembawang Park and then on to Changi for the Prison Museum tour. A very sobering place. Back to the coach for a drvie poast the Jahore Battery and then down the eastern side of the island to the Gardens by the bay. Things that also were not mentioned but we saw on the tour included the container port, the cable car to Sentosa island, Haw Par Villa (Tiger Balm Gardens), the various cemeteries, horticultural area, the site where the Japanese landed in world war two, the remaining Jungle areas and the various residential areas. All the while Foo was providing most interesting facts about the history and the modern way of life in Singapore. The tour was a fabulous experience and I would highly recommend it.
Personally I don't know how they do it for the price. We were picked up from Sentosa Island, given a meal also a 40 minute ride on a bum boat on the river and the spectacular Gardens by the Bay sound and light show and about 20 minutes in Bugis Street. The commentary was very interesting and I would recommend this tour to anyone of any age.
Highlight of our family Singapore trip...even my 3 kids aged 8 - 13 loved it. It was great to see parts of the island tourists don't normally get to. The visits to the memorials were moving, and the temple interesting. Lunch was great, the setting actually was better than the food, and the food was good. We chose to stay at the gardens and even then we didn't do them justice. But the highlight was the commentary by Joseph our guide - he made the day! It was the stories about life on Singapore, from the housing to the cars, and his personal stories which made it special. Most will do the zoos, and Sentosa...but do yourself a favour and look at something like this tour. Get out of the city, and have a look and listen. Get to know a little ore about the island. Highly recommended, and very good value.
My boyfriend and I loved this tour it was very interesting! Going to the war memorial was very moving and the site is beautiful! Our tour guide was amazing she was really funy and friendly and very informative, she knew everything! However 30mins is not long enough at gardens by the bay.
Exceeded our expectations, our tour guide was very knowledgable . The meal was more than we expected. The gardens were breathtaking and the drive through the city centre was unbelievable. The river ride, we didn't want to get off the boat.
A first class tour, Gardens by the Bay absolutely spectacular!
Note - this is not a guided tour. The "Tour" was a bus pickup at hotel to Chinatown assembly point. We were given our tickets to the Gardens by the Bay including Cloud Forest Dome, Flower Dome and the Singapore Flower festival - an extra feature on at that time. Tour bus took us to the Gardens and from there on we were on our own to do what we wanted when we wanted, but already had tickets to the domes etc, so no queuing.
HINT: to get around the acreage easily, use the trams only a couple of bucks each for a three rides ticket. Hop on / off at any stops you want. Great for Domes to the Meadows etc.
The Cloud forest is spectacular, brilliant, interesting and beautiful. Best exhibit of its kind anywhere in the world. You MUST see this.
The now Iconic Giant Tree sculptures are awesome. The Interconnecting Skywalk is a must do ($5 entry) Do it at 7:45pm when they do the light show with soundtrack - it is spectacular. They do two shows per night. Also worth doing is lunch in the restaurant atop the highest of these trees. Great views, rooftop bar is awesome. Food is also good. Plenty of other food options down on the ground if this is not your thing. Most restaurants are around at the Meadows stop.
The Singapore flower festival was inspirational - not just flowers on display but whole gardens, internal themed gardens lit up spectacularly in darkness in air-conditioned mega-tents. WOW.The edible garden was very educational and the display of Bonzai trees was fascinating. Pity this is not a year long event.
Gardens by the Bay - not to be missed.
