What You Can Expect

Best Private Changi Chapel and Museum Tour from Singapore

Private Tour: Changi Village, Chapel and Museum Half-Day Tour from Singapore

Meet your professional guide upon hotel pickup in Singapore, and transfer by private vehicle to Changi Village, located on the east coast of Singapore. Upon arrival, stop at the Changi Chapel and Museum, dedicated to those who both survived and perished in the Changi region during WWII. See tools, personal belongings and other artifacts on display, all used by Singapore’s POWs during Japanese occupation.

Listen to your private guide recount stories of the collective spirit that rose in Changi through the darkest times of war, and learn about the cultural heritage of Singapore’s ethnic Malays. As you explore the chapel and museum with your guide, hear about pre-war living conditions and the effect of militarization on Changi.

After touring the site, drive through Changi Village for a glimpse of this relaxed and rustic side of Singapore, and continue to Tampines New Town. You’ll make a brief stop in this typical heartland township for a contrasting view of present-day Singapore, including a visit to the wet market, coffee shop and housing blocks, before drop-off at your hotel.

Dennis was a most knowledgable guide, he looked after us and would say this tour was very good value for money

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2012

This tour was fantastic. Our tour guide Margaret was wonderful with loads of knowledge and information. A very emotional day, where we learnt more about the history of Changi and the atrocities that ooh place. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Singapore. Thanks again Margaret your knowledge was amazing and you educated us about Singapore in general too!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2010

Our personal guide and our chauffeur helped to make this very emotional trip a lovely experience. Changi Museum is very explicit, hard on the senses, it will make you weep, but our lovely guide made it bearable by her sympathetic approach. A must for anyone interested in WWII history.

A Tour to take if you are interested in the war history of Singapore. Pricilla was our Guide and she was great telling us the stories behind the exhibits.

4 star rating: Recommended September 2013

Our tour guide was very informative about life in Singapore and took us to experience how they lived. We even walked through a "suburb" to see how they live in shop in the hi rises.
The tour mainly focused on their way of life which was different from tours I have been on all around the world.

Very good overview of Changi and the effect of the war on Singapore. Visit to the Malay area was worthwhile too. Guide knowledgable and friendly.

4 star rating: Recommended September 2012

A nice allround trip - Guide was extremely pleasant and very well informed -- Disappointing to realise the original Changi Chapel is in Canberra and only got to see a copy, but rest of museum was great

This tour was quite good.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better January 2012

A dissapointing tour. As adecendant of a POW held in Changi I expected to be able to see the inside of the prison and chapel. In the tour notes it should state the situation as it is today.
