We did this on our first day in Singapore and it was a great way to get orientated in anew city
Very good, great way to see Singapore, staff were incredibly informative, friendly, polite and helpful - only two comments - commentary on upper deck on a couple of buses was so faint you had to lean down under the seat to hear and miss what you were passing and we also found, whilst waiting at bus stops to reboard, that the Hippo Duck Tour buses, which seemed to do the same route, appeared more frequently.
Very good way of seeing all Singapore, bus can be used all day and run at regular intervals. The river boat trip was well worth taking, and you could get on and off at any of the stops.
The city tour was excellent value. There were 3 different bus routes, leaving so that you could easily go on all 3. and obviously get off and back on if you wished. The timetables were easy to follow. There were only 3 stops on the bubble boat, but we had the boat to ourselves, on a couple of the trips. The bubble boat pass was actually valid for 24 hours from when you first used it, so we didn't need to rush to get it all done in the same day.
Excellent value for money. You can to lots of places you wont see on a tour. off the beaten track and to see everyday living not just the fancy areas.
This was a great way to get an overview of the city and the bubble jet boat was fantastic for night views from the river. The only glitch was the hotel pick up. Communication between the pick up transportation and the hotel for picking up the client should be clearer. We were not notified as to when and what time the pick up would occur so the driver wasted a trip to our hotel. I discovered they had come when I called to book a pick up. Apparently I was not the only client in this position. The company or dispatch doing the pick up should leave an advance notice to the client at their hotel to ensure that the client will be there.
Worth taking even just to see the sights a little. Dinner was nice at the Flyer, the light show at the Gardens was spectacular and the River cruise impressive. Friendly guide, well organised.
Very good value and the bum boat was excellent as the pass was valid for 24 hours from when we got on the boats. A great way to see another aspect of Singapore. Highly recommend.
Excellent day saw all major sights of Singapore.We would recommend this tour to all comers.Pick up from hotel and transport to the bus depot. A very pleasant and well organised day.
On the whole excellent although one bus we got on gave us no commentary at all
A word of warning! If you want to get out at a particular stop, don't expect the guide/driver to anticipate your wish. Make it known when you get on where you want to get off. Had to do the trip twice to get off at the Botanical gardens.
Compared to other hop on hop off buses we have taken in other cities, we felt this one was not up to the usual standards. First off we weren't picked up at the hotel as scheduled. We wound up walking to the site where the bus tickets were given out. Secondly the bus it's self was not very good if you had to ride inside. The windows had writing on them so you couldn't see out very well. And you couldn't hear any of the recorded tourist information. The timing to connect to the various bus routes was not particularly convenient.
Great way to see the city if you've never visited before although I didn't find it very informative! Don't bother with the bubble jet boat, just a sweat box!
we didn't enjoyed the open-top bus because you have to go all the way back where you were dropped off to catch the bus. Bubble Jet boat was nice and relaxing....
