From there you proceed to the National Orchid Garden, located within the Singapore Botanic Gardens, which boasts a sprawling display of 60,000 orchid plants comprising of 400 species and more than 2,000 hybrids. The final stop at Little India will entrance you with the scent of joss sticks, jasmine and spices.
After revising the itinerary (when realizing we had already seen some stuff on a post cruise tour); this was an excellent tour. Our tour guide was very accommodating and informative. With the change in the itinerary he was still very good at explaining. The tour vehicle on the other hand was filthy and I think a smaller vehicle for 2 people would have been a better choice. Also the driver was not very nice nor friendly or accommodating.
Enjoyable tour, our guide was knowledgeable and funny. The beautiful Orchid Garden was the highlight of the morning.
