I have travelled extensively over the past 18 years, and this tour was one of the most interesting and informative I have ever taken, thanks to our guide, who was the best, as all our group agreed. Thanks.
We learned so much, we all have heard the stories about the Death Railway and the Bridge on the River Kwai, but little is taught about Changi. I would highly recommend it to anyone. We had a lovely guide with great knowledge.
I just finished reading King Rat by James Cavell, who had based the book on his experiences at the prison. The tour was very interesting and informative. The tour leader is very passionate about keeping the history relevant.
Great tour. Don't get to tour Changi prison as its still a working prison. Tour guide Helena was great, very personable and full of info on Singapore at the time of invasion and since. Lots of info on Singapore today. Great transport well worth doing.
Our tour guide was excellent. Very knowledgable. It would have been interesting to see more of the prison if this was possible. The museum was excellent and very informative. Would go to the Museum again as there is so much to read about the people who were a part of this War.
A very interesting and informative tour. The stories the guide told really brought that time period to life.
Helena was very informative, learnt a lot. Have recommended to others.
Our guide, Carol, was excellent! She was passionate about the history - the commentary was balanced, extensive and interesting with not only relevance to war time Singapore but also modern Singapore.
The only down side, though no fault of the tour itself, was the absence of a visit to Changi Prison because access is not permitted and little remains other than the external wall.
Nevertheless, the tour was worth doing.
The highlight of this tour was the Changi Museum. Inside the stories, picture boards, artefacts were interesting, sad, funny.... Joo Ling was our tour guide: what a wonderful lady; knowledgeable, friendly and shared personal experiences with us. Easy to get to Pasir Ris MRT (green line). We arrived a little early and had a maccas breakfast inside shopping centre. Original chapel was relocated to Australia, so what you visit is a replica but this didn't affect my experience at all. Great history told.
The tour was very interesting and the guide Jooling was great . Her knowledge was fantastic kept up interested the whole time.It was well organised and gave you plenty of time for photos you never rushed .i would recommend this for anyone interested in the war to see what our POWs had to put up with.
Our tour gujde was knowledgable and informative. Her only difficulty was that she is yet to master the use of various types of microphone/pa systems on the bus and on foot (and they are not of sufficient quality). This meant that only those close to her could hear. Since the tour relies very heavily on the commentary, the difficulty hearing the guide was a major drawback to an otherwise very important historical tour.
Everything that was promised was delivered.
Very experienced guide.
