We had a great time. The guide was very knowledgeable, and we learnt a lot about Singapore. We would definitely recommend doing this trip.

Good trip to get an overview of the island. Morning stops didn't quite fill the morning, so guide added a stop at a hydroponic farm, which we really enjoyed try the lettuce juice! However, the lunch, in a room full of tourists, was only average, which considering the usually amazing food in Singapore is a crime. Warning - if you're not interested in Singapore's involvement in WWII this may not be the tour for you. The morning has a stop in a military cometary and the afternoon has a lengthy stop at Changi Chapel and Museum.
