Really good, excellent tour guide just a shame it wasn't for longer.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

This tour was our 1st introduction to Singapore and with Linda, our tour guide, we have not only seen a lot, but also learnt a lot about this nice and interesting city. Linda was really great and helpful. It's been also a real plus being only a small group of about 7 or 9 people. Also the pick up in our hotel was well organized and on time. Big recommendation! : : : Brigitte

excellent could not have wished for more

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Recommended for first-timers and people with only small time. The tour was quite a brief overview of the city. Our guide explained everything pretty well and we felt comfortable with looking at things out of the bus mostly. So expect to have a few stops for taking pictures and enjoy the rest of the tour in the bus.
I can imagine people could dislike it, but for us it was perfect to get an overview.
