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, you’ll head to the world-famous Raffles Hotel, a place of cosmopolitan elegance built in 1899. Visit the hotel’s museum to see photographs, post cards, china and other memorabilia that famous hotel guests have returned. Then finish your tour with a cocktail in hand – you can’t visit the Raffles Hotel before sipping the drink that was invented there, the Singapore Sling.
This was an excellent tour with a very knowledgeable guide who brought history into the present day. The pace was comfortable and the places visited much appreciated
wonderful guide on this very interesting tour
What an excellent introduction to Singapore ! Helena our guide ,was a wealth of information and allowed plenty of time at each stop for our group.
Fantastic tour, great guide and thoroughly enjoyed the tour
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) :-)
