What a blast this tour was. Being picked up late, was not the best way to start, but the whole night after that was unforgettable. Started at a Chinese pharmacy with traditional and Western cures for just about everything, unfortunately the cost of some of the cures was enough to make you well by yourself. We then went for a small walk to a Chinese restaurant for a meal.
Chinese tea was served first up and this is definitely an acquired taste, and I haven't acquired it but the rest of the meal was great. We hen went to meet up with our Trishaw Drivers at Smith Street I still can't get over this street name being used in Chinatown. The trishaw ride was incredible, and really demonstrated the tolerance of Singapore drivers.
With both of us being on the larger side, we sought out a trishaw with what looked like the youngest and fittest driver, because we new someone was in for a hard time. The driver we ended up with was fantastic. He had a great sense of humour and answered the many questions that we asked of him. The highlight of the ride had to be the drag down the main road to Clarke Quay. We were three trishaws wide, taking up three lanes, have a drag race to get to the corner first. Everyone in the group couldn't stop laughing at this, and the cars and buses just casually passed us by without a care in the world. I could not imagine this happening in Pitt Street in Sydney.
Finally we arrived at Clarke Quay and went on a Bumboat ride. What we were in was the Singapore River and Marina Bay and it became a tour of Singapore from a different perspective and a view of many of the sights of Singapore that you might not normally get.
To add to the thrill we were treated to a light and laser show from Marina Sands, an added bonus.
This was an excellent night and one that I will do again when we return to Singapore.
This is definitely one of the best value for money tours available and you won't be disappointed.
Reasonably priced and the trip down the Singapore River was wonderful
This tour was fabulous. We had the best time doing this tour out of all things we did on our 16 night holiday. The tour host was really funny and entertaining, the included meal was excellent, looking around Chinatown was great. The Trishaw ride was sooo good. We had great weather and they all worked hard to make sure we had fun. The bumboat ride was also excellent and we saw so much in a short time. Everything was timed to perfection and it couldn't have been better !! loved every minute of it !! I highly recommend this to anyone wanting a good night out.
Great value for money. Food was excellent and plenty of it. Guide was informative and managed his group very well. Most enjoyable evening.
This is a wonderful tour! Great programme, great food, amazing trishaw ride! Highly recommended
Absolutely awesome... well worth the money and fun fun fun... highly recommend as part of your Singapore experience... Thnaks
This was a fantastic tour, so much to see and do, a great introduction to Singapore when you have limited time like we did.
Loved this tour. Well worth doing. Meal was gr8, trishaw ride lots of fun and seeing Singapore by night up the river beautiful.
Tour was great, especially the trishaw ride which was the highlight of our stay in Singapore. The 7 course meal was a bit ordinary though. Linda , our tour guide was lots of fun and very knowledgeable .
10 of us did this tour to celebrate my mum's 80th birthday. We all had a fantastic night and the trishaw ride was definitely the highlight. Would highly recommend this tour.
Very good tour with very good guide. The food quality was just above average on this excursion. Boat ride was very good. We had 45 minutes to walk around Chinatown. We didnt get this as described Watch a calligrapher at work and receive a personal sample of Chinese writing to keep but did go to a Traditional Chinese medicine shop and had an informative talk there, then recieved a free gift.
A great fun trip seeing the best sights of Singapore at night. A nice meal included so good value for money.
Our trip was fantastic, the Tour was also Fantastic. The Tour guide was funny and very informative.
The Trishow guys were the best.
Great tour. Very entertaining guide. Trishaw ride was very funny, food ok and river cruise very good.
Had a great evening with Benny. Just a fun evening exploring some of Chinatown, having a trishaw ride and great trip around the waterways seeing the various landmarks. I did this tour 5 years ago and recommended it to the group I was with this time and we all enjoyed it.
What a great little tour. Our guide was terrific sorry forgot her name. The tri-shaw ride in itself was worth the cost as we were driven through the stalls of the shopping area through the crowds of shoppers and onto the roads in amongst the traffic. The locals appeared to embrace the tri-shaws and waved as we passed. The Chinese dinner was good, and the bumboat ride relaxing. Had plenty of time to shop amongst the stalls during the tour. Tour guide and tri-shaw riders made the night.
This was a wonderful experience !!! We had just one night in Singapore and saw so much on this evening trip. The highlight for me was the boat ride but I thoroughly enjoyed every moment and would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Singpore.
What a great surprise this trip was.
We had a fun night.
great value for money.
From the time I booked to the end of the tour, it was efficient, friendly and fun. Having previously done this tour I knew what to expect and it was just as good the second time round. My friend had not been to Singapore, but really enjoyed the different activities and the opportunity to see the city at night time as we had already done a morning tour.
Staff were all friendly and although it was a large group 31, Vimi organised everyone easily and kept us on track.
Thanks for a good fun and light-hearted activity. A good way to start seeing the beautiful city of Singapore.
Good value. Really enjoyable trip from start to finish. Only downfall was a trip to a Chinese herbal shop for a soft sell,but that did spoil the trip and we did get a free sample. Chinese meal was very enjoyable but the rickshaw ride was the highlight for me. Would certainly plan this trip again if ever I return to Singapore .
Great fun!! Guide had a great sense of humour and was really knowledgeable. Don't remember it being mentioned in the event info but also had a short visit to a Chinese apothecary. Nice touch that we were all given a pot of mosquito repellant! Tour ended at Clark Quay where you could stay for the evening we did this as it was really lively and we wouldn't have spent an evening there otherwise or get taken back to your hotel.
