I was very impressed with this tour, especially our guide, Mr Foo - what a wealth of knowledge. I was fortunate to have a small group of 3 with Mr Foo, so we gained enormous benefit of listening to his stories and understanding of local history. I did, however find the title of the tour slightly misleading as the tour was more cultural than food tasting i.e. we started at the Spice Gardens, then drove around observing the local architecture and some of the heritage listed properties, then onto a market shop for local handicrafts and plate of 3 small bites of food followed by a visit to the Peranakan museum. If anyone signs up to this tour for food they would be disappointed.
I have visited Singapore many times but knew nothing of the Peranakan Trail. What an amazing interesting morning. I learned more from your guide in 3 hours than I have on many previous visits to the country. The only disappointment was the short amount of time we had in the Museum, others I think it was wonderful. The guide was really knowledgeable, not only about his subject but about the overall history of Singapore.
This is an excellent tour. Our guide, Phillip, was very good with his comments, knowledge and feeling for the history and food of the Peranakan. The tastings were excellent and the Museum was extremely interesting. Well worth doing.
An excellent tour local tour guide was excellent a very interesting tour
This was an excellent tour conducted by a very informative Tour Guide.
Mr Foo was a very informative guide who told and showed us many interesting facts on herbs,traditions and history of the Peranakan people. The store where we had food tasting was like a small museum with many artefacts , it also sold food stuffs.
The actual museum we visited was excellent
Very interesting. I really enjoyed seeing how spices grow in Fort Canning, the museum and food.
If you like learning about other cultures then this the tour to do. It was my favourite and Phillip our guide, who was one of the Peranakan people was so lovely and informative. The whole tour was totally. Enjoyable.
i didn't go the tour because I joined 2 tours. The 1st tour, the guide just left me at the Botanic garden where no public transportation because he didnt mention where to wait and I wait at difference place. I asked to cancel the 2nd tour 48hours in advance but Viator said the local agent Tour East wouldnt refund!!!
I called local tour agent...no APOLOGY. Only blaming I was responsible and "FUNNY" that only 4ppl were left behind.
Itinerary included 15 mins 5 place which gem factory is not in itinerary.
VIATOR will only gave me their terms and conditons! They sold me to the local agent!!! They hv nothing to do!!!
If you want to try how to be abandoned under hot and no transportation... go for their tour!!! EXTREME EXPERIENCE!!!!
This was really interesting, guide knew a lot and gave extra information on the herb and spices in garden. Museum tour he also explained much more than we would of seen walking it alone, wasn't sure of this when I booked it but found it full of different things.
Absolutely fabulous. We had a great time. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a very good sense of humour which made our excursion very enjoyable. The visit to the Peranakan shop house was excellent and our food guide was very knowledgeable and dexterous - I don't know that I can do the proper folds to make that delicious food parcel. The Peranakan museum is a little jewel which was well explained by our guide. All in a all, a well worthwhile tour. Highly recommended!
This was an interesting tour, which one would not be able to do on ones own. The information of Peranakan food was interesting and the food tasted great. the visit to the Peranakan museum was interesting.
We did several tours on Singapore with different companies but without question this was the best. It was a great mix of history and culture with the promise of some authentic Peranakan food at the end. Our guide (Mr Foo) was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining - so much so we booked up for another tour with him. We'd recommend this over the normal city tour to get behind the scenes in Singapore...
