Second time I did this tour. Still enjoyed it. Guide was explaining thing right from the word go. We learnt a lot about Singapore. Made me realise how short a history and what little Singapore has to show tourists. But they still do it in style. I wish poor Sri Lanka, which has so much to offer (proud history running 10,000 years, beaches, wild life, history, scenic country side), could learn from Singapore and market their treasured tourist attractions more aggressively in a tourist friendly manner. Hats off Singapore
An excellent value trip lasting a full day with a very knowledgable an interesting guide (named Foo). The morning was taken up with a tour of the western and north western side of the island. The Kranji War memroial is beautiful and poignant at this time of the year. I proudly bought my poppy there. The next stop was the Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery, a surprise as it wasn't mentioned in the itinery but for me the highlight of the day. The 13.8 metre 55 ton Buddah is an awe inspiring sight and the many Monestry buildings are beautiful. On to a very tasty lunch in Sembawang Park and then on to Changi for the Prison Museum tour. A very sobering place. Back to the coach for a drvie poast the Jahore Battery and then down the eastern side of the island to the Gardens by the bay. Things that also were not mentioned but we saw on the tour included the container port, the cable car to Sentosa island, Haw Par Villa (Tiger Balm Gardens), the various cemeteries, horticultural area, the site where the Japanese landed in world war two, the remaining Jungle areas and the various residential areas. All the while Foo was providing most interesting facts about the history and the modern way of life in Singapore. The tour was a fabulous experience and I would highly recommend it.
This tour wax excellent. Out tour guide was very knowledgable.
The trip to Kranji was very moving and lovely to see how our soldiers have been remembered.
The trip to the Changing memorial was very relevant to me ax my 4 uncles were in there and I was able to see their names in the book.
Lunch at the restaurant by the sea wax very good ,great range of food and very well presented.
Gardens by the bay was a bit rushed but at least we got yo go there in the limited time we had in Singapore.
Great Tour would recommenf
Picked up at prearranged tim. Informative courier who spoke good English. Interesting stop off points. Excellent meal.
Excellent tour guide was very knowleagable and friendly. The meal was great too!
Enjoyed this tour immensely. Our tour guide was very informative. Pity you don't get to see the inside of the Changi Prison, but that's Govt regulations.
Excellent tour, picked up from hotel and offered to be dropped back at hotel.
Driver and guide very good.
Guided was obviously very proud to be a Singaporean, and was very informative during his commentary, which was basically non stop form the time we boarded the bus to the time we got off.
This tour was fantastic. The tour guide was brilliant and knowledgable. Most memorable was the trip to Kranji where my Uncle was buried. First one in my family to visit his grave. Very emotional time and plenty of time on the program to linger a while. Highly recommend this trip.
The tour guide was amazing with his knowledge and the way he imparted it to us. The driver was very conscious of our comfort and our meal was adequate and satisfactory with helpful and attentive staff at the restaurant. We were dropped off at our various hotels with minimum walking distance. All in all a very good experience.
Highlight of our family Singapore trip...even my 3 kids aged 8 - 13 loved it. It was great to see parts of the island tourists don't normally get to. The visits to the memorials were moving, and the temple interesting. Lunch was great, the setting actually was better than the food, and the food was good. We chose to stay at the gardens and even then we didn't do them justice. But the highlight was the commentary by Joseph our guide - he made the day! It was the stories about life on Singapore, from the housing to the cars, and his personal stories which made it special. Most will do the zoos, and Sentosa...but do yourself a favour and look at something like this tour. Get out of the city, and have a look and listen. Get to know a little ore about the island. Highly recommended, and very good value.
My boyfriend and I loved this tour it was very interesting! Going to the war memorial was very moving and the site is beautiful! Our tour guide was amazing she was really funy and friendly and very informative, she knew everything! However 30mins is not long enough at gardens by the bay.
Amazing tour guide very knowledgeable,it is a long trip worth seeing the coast of Singapore and how close the surrounding countries are and how vulnerable Singapore was. Very emotional seeing how many men and women perished in the war, when visiting the War Memorial and Museum. A must tour.
This is a great way to get your bearings. Our guide was informative, especially knowledgeable regarding the Kranji War Cemetery, helping anyone looking for a particular grave site. We had a relaxing and plentiful lunch and Changi is a sobering and thought provoking experience that will stay with me. I highly recommend this tour; you'll get a good look round Singapore and a grasp of the history of the place.
Such a great tour to go on, our guide was well spoken and extremely knowledgable about the island of Singapore. A must for anybody visiting Singapore for the first time.
Fantastic! This was our first tour in Singapore. Our guide was so informative we learned so much not only about Changi POW camp and Kranji War Memorial but all about Singapore. This tour gave us a real insight into Singapore's history as well as modern Singapore. We had a delightful chinese style banquet lunch with iced tea. Would definitely recommend this tour and would recommend this as a first tour so to get your bearings of where things are as it takes you all around the island.
The day was good from start to finish, with tour was well balanced with good time at each location. Lunch was very good and the provision of an umberela to get back to the coach, during heavy rain, was well received.
Excellent value for money. The guide was informative and helpful. Enjoyed all the venues visited and lunch though simple was good. Would most definitely recommend this trip.
Fantastic trip. Guide very knowledgeable. The visit to Kranji war memorial and Changi war prison was very moving. The Chinese temple was beautiful, and the lunch was excellent.i would highly recommend this trip.
wonderful tour, tour guide was a wealth of information and funny.
From the pick up from our hotel to the drop off at the end of the tour everything was superb. The driver was polite and courteous, the guide was excellent; she knew her stuff and she added humour where appropriate. In fact she was one of the best guides we have experienced.
The sites we saw were well managed, interesting and clean. The bus was very clean, very comfortable and the air conditioning was first class.
We highly recommend this trip for all visitors to Singapore.
This tour was very good. From the morning pickup at our hotel to Gardens by the Bay where we left the tour as we wanted to explore more. Our Guide was very informative and the tour gave a really good perspective of the size of the Island and we drove thru parts we would never have gone to unless we hired a car and then we wouldn't have had the commentary from our knowledgeable Guide. Thank you.
