I really enjoyed our day. We did this tour before leaving for the airport on our way home but wished we had done it earlier as we saw parts of Singapore River eateries etc I would have loved to have gone to had I known they were there. The tour isnt Hotel focused but definitely gives you ideas of the amazing history of the hotel. The guide was very well spoken and informed and there was time to wander without the guide as well. We had the bakery package due to gluten free requirements and they whipped up a lovely GF cake for my mother. The choc cake was huge but we didnt shy away from it!! The pewter gallery and museum weren't as great as the rest of the tour but I guess it depends what you are after. Worth the price and reputable organisation.
Here's the tip - you will spend longer on the bus getting there and home than you will at the hotel. It was recommended to us to eat first and fast, go to the early show right away and then do the tram ride afterwards but somehow we ended up on the tram straight after dinner and then the show was full and we couldnt get in either the early or late session so there wasnt much to do but sit around after that. The buffet dinner was really nice but because you have to rush and dont get there til later because of bus times etc I would suggest to skip it and have dinner before the tour or get a snack when walking around. If you pay that much for a buffet you really want to sit and enjoy it! - Drinks are extra and EXPENSIVE!! Go direct to the first show and early. Dont expect to turn up at show time and get a seat. The tram ride was cute but it's very difficult to see the animals - a little more lighting would be helpful. You can walk around but it's so dark, we didnt dare incase we got lost before our bus left! You can go to the fish spa and have fish nibble your feet - not for me but everyone else was having fun. The atmosphere is really nice and had we did everything in the right order it would have been even better.
