What You Can Expect
Start off by visiting the Singapore Supreme Court. Walk up to the viewing deck for fantastic views of the city. Next, explore the 150-year-old Saint Andrew’s Cathedral, a place of worship for colonial British officials and a casualty station to care for the wounded during the Japanese invasion.
Head to the Armenian Church – the oldest Christian church in Singapore – to discover the history of Singapore’s Armenian community and enjoy the beautiful architecture amid the verdant tropical fauna. At CHIJMES – a beautiful former Catholic convent that is today an entertainment, shopping and dining center – listen to stories about French missionaries.
Finally, re-live the nostalgia of the Golden Era of Travel at one of Singapore's last remaining grand bungalows, now better known as the Raffles Hotel.
Excellent tour. Very informative. This is a great way to learn about the history of Singapore. Our tour guide, Carol Dragon, was very entertaining and shared a wealth of knowledge with the group. The tour, however, is not suitable for children or teenagers.
The positives: Carol was fantastic, a fountain of knowledge, and considerate to the age of the group and the heat, found places for us to sit down out of the heat while she filled us in. She remembered our names! I saw and learned so much more in the time frame than if I had tried to do it by myself.
Against: I thought it would have been an advantage to book ahead, but people rolling up on the day without booking, paid less than I did. I was a bit put out!
Amazing tour. Gives solid knowledge on SINGs colonial past with very interesting details.

Absolutely loved this tour...so very interesting and informative! Helena was the perfect guide and she was a fountain of knowledge...would have loved to have done the other tours but was only in Singapore for 2 days! But as they say...never say never!! I'm quite sure I will be back in Singapore again! Thanks again! Debbie Parker (Glasgow, Scotland) :-)
