This tour was awesome - probably the highlight of our trip to Singapore. Our guide was informative, friendly and he made the whole experience personal by telling us stories of how the war impacted his family. I don't have relatives who were affected by WWII in Singapore, but I was emotionally hit bit time with the stores and pictures told in the museum. Absolutely worth the investment. Would definitely go again and recommend to anyone who is remotely interested in this sort of tour.
Helena was a very interesting tour guide and I really appreciated her knowledge and explanations of the Fall of Singapore in 1942 and in particular the aftermath suffered by not only the Australian and other Allied forces, but also the impact on the people living in Singapore. Learning about what happened at Changi Beach and in the PoW camps should be very important to us all and touring the Changi Museum helped in increasing our awareness of the terrible suffering of those interned in these camps during WW2. Thank you for a very valuable history lesson.

Great content. Interesting and engaged tour guide.
The tour and our enthusiastic guide was excellent. The Changi museum and memorial were informative and very moving brought tears to the eyes.
Really interesting morning. Tour was exactly how it was described - found it quite moving finding out what happened during WW2. Wui Wui, our Guide, was brilliant! She certainly knew her stuff, any question asked was answered and didn't feel rushed. The Tour ended at Changi War Museum, where you could stay and see the displays in more detail, however, I felt that Wui Wui covered everything so well. The bus takes you back to the MRT station where they pick you up from. If you have the time - go and see
Outstanding excursion. Amazing amount of info and knowledge shared by guide.
