This is my scond "duck" tour in Singapore. Last time we did a walk up ticket and this time I wanted to skip the lines. As the tour day varied and no times were given I mistakenly believed you could join any tour in progress. You MUST call the day before and state the time you want to go, I suggest before lunch and afternoon showers. Besides the timing issue the tour was fun and covered the downtown square and major sites well, the bay and surrounding areas was good as well. My 2 year old had a good time but Duck Tour people did not try to rearrange the group so we could sit together, we sat across from each other but this was fine for me, if not for you you will have to speak up and demand this before the tour begins. Good photos and my daughter had fun so it was well worth it.
Jurong Bird Park was fun and a great experience for my 2 year old. Not much time for exploring on 1/2 day tour, just tram ride, 2 shows and 10 min to get souvenirs. A/C tram was under repairs, I wish this would have been advertised. Park is clean, friendly staff, not too crowded. Shows are entertaining and educational. Did not get time to eat at the park, drinks and snacks are available. Man made waterfall is not much more than a photo op, just a few birds to be seen. Birds of Pray and Bird Buddies shows are the best for kids. The bus ride is about 40 min so entertainment for younger kids is a must as is a bathroom break BEFORE getting on the bus.
This was my 2nd trip to the zoo and 2nd breakfast. My daughter enjoyed seeing the orangutans and has talked about it for a week after, a long time for a 2 year old. We skiped the tram ride at first to see the apes and other animals more which was good for us. As you get unlimited tram access we got picked up after the African big cats and got off to see the white tigers. It was a bit difficult to manage the tight time lines but it worked out fine, you do have option to take taxi back for around $30SD. Park is clean, excellent staff, construction for new Panda exhibit sounds fun when completed. For younger kids breakfast tour is great, older kids a whole day is needed, there is a kids park inside. My only issue was with pickup service, had to call as driver was 30 min late in arriving. Bus ride is around 30 min so some entertainment for younger kids is advised as is bathroom break before getting on the bus.
