I did this tour 3 Mar 13 (AUD46.93). I loved it! This was my 4th trip to Sgp and I was determined NOT to go anywhere near Orchard Rd. I wanted to see the real Sgp with some peace, quiet and tranquility-away from crazy crowds. I took a taxi from V Hotel (MRT Lavender) to Changi Ferry terminal. 20 mins, approx SGD20. (Bus #2 from Victoria Rd). I boarded the bumboat for SGD2.50 each way. The little wooden boats don't go to timetable, they just go when they have 12 passengers (full boat). It was a lovely 15 min ride over to Pulau Ubin (Ubin Island). I met my tour guide, Zhiguang right on time at 9.15am. I was amazed I was the only rider, so I had a personal tour guide for my money. Bonus! We went and got our mountain bikes and took off. What a beautiful National Park. Very few residents - those there are still living in traditional style houses.
I absolutely loved peddling around the sealed roads with Zhiguang. He is studying Sports Science at College and we had some great chats about fitness and Singapore in general. He has been coming to Ubin since 2007 so he knows the island really well. I loved peddling on the "blue trail" the easy off road circuit - a bit of gravel, mud and grass, a few lumps and bumps but nothing crazy for a beginner like me. There is also "black diamond" and "double black diamond" trail for the serious riders - but you wont be doing them on this tour (ha ha). I loved riding around and seeing the "Butterfly Hill" (counted 7 varieties of butterfly in just a few minutes), the "Secret Spice Garden", the waterlilly pond, the Shrine to German Girl, the old granite quarry (now a reservoir filled with water forming a beautiful lake) and the amazing views over to Malaysia - I didn't realise it was so close you could swim across. I had a blast! I was so sorry it was over at 1.30pm. I invited Zhiguang to some lunch at one of the local restaurants. I wanted to thank him for the best tour - I enjoyed it HEAPS more than shopping on Orchard Rd!
A wonderful experience, very informative. Thoroughly enjoyed the cycling. A great time cycling through the mangroves, etc and the guides were so much fun. Kind Regards, Trevor and Vicky Forde

Great ambitious and competent guide for myself, fantastic nature, will recommend this tour in Switzerland!
