An excellent tour. Guide was very informative and knowledgeable. Well worth doing to learn more about the situation in Singapore for locals, POWs, and soldiers.

My wife and I found the tour a rewarding and sobering experience, and provided sought after information regarding Changi, its histiry, and the events surrounding the Japanese invasion and occupation. Tour guide was excellent - great knowledge/good sense of humour/mature "feel"for the subject matter. She also gave good insight into modern Singapore. Thank you very much! Highlight was the visit to the Changi museum and its shrine.

Overall i would rate the tour as ok, our guide was excellent, but disapointed not be able to view the old wall and gate in Changi prison.

This was a interesting tour. Our guide, Helena, was very knowledgeable and informative and explained much of the backgound to the Fall of Singapore and life in Changi for POWs in WW2. The chapel and museum were very moving - well laid out and gave a picture of what life was like as a POW. It was disappoining that we could not actually visit the site of the WW2 prison because that is still on the site on the present day Changi prison, but apart from that, the tour was well worth doing and gave us an insight into that period of our Australian/Singaporean history.

We very much enjoyed the tour to the Changi museum. Our guide was very passionate about her tour and gave us an insight into the times we had not thought of. The Jo Hore gun replica needs a lot of work on the site as it was overgrown. The masacare on the beach has been forgotten but showed how close the mainland is for the invasion of Singapore. The ease of getting to each site was well worth taking the tour as public transport would not be easy.

This tour was good value for money, and provided a basis from which I can now do further travel myself. Timimg was good, and bus used was in very good order. All round good experience as guide was knowledgeable and spoke well.

Well worth doing and the tour guide we had had a very good grasp of her history facts. It is a shame some of the things you see are not the originals but all the same a good tour.

We really enjoyed this tour. It was informative and well balanced (between the sites). I'm not sure it is worthwhile going to the replica gun (particularly given what the restaurateur has done in terms of covering it up). Perhaps you could consider leaving this out and giving your tour group 20-30 minutes to themselves in the museum to read the panels and do some self-discovery?
