Barnard was an awesome guide who added personal touches throughout the entire tour! This is a not-to-be-missed tour while in Singapore!

Excellent tour. 2 and 1/2 hours flew and we did not even notice. Our party had children of 3 and 4 years of age and they did even show signs of disinterest or fatigue. Worth every penny. Will be signing for other tours for sure.
