5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2013

There was a lot of waiting around before the tour actually started, but once we got going, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of information about Changi specifically and Singapore generally. Changi itself was excellent… a very well laid out museum, and gave enough information without being either too overwhelming or too superficial. The stop at the Tampines (a suburb in Singapore) and the visit to the Malay quarter were interesting. A must see while in Singapore.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2013

Great guide! Very informative tour and a great way to see areas of Singapore outside of the city, learn about some of the history of Singapore and how Sigaporeans live in the suburbs.
