Your half-day Singapore city tour starts in the Civic District, where you’ll see government buildings and other landmarks such as the Parliament House, the Cricket Club, Padang sports field and the National Gallery Singapore, where the former Supreme Court Building and City Hall sit. Then stop for a view of Marina Bay and photo op of the Merlion statue, Singapore’s mythological figure that’s half-fish, half-lion. Next, visit Thian Hock King, one of the city’s oldest Buddhist-Taoist temples, followed by a drive through Chinatown. Stop by the National Orchid Garden, part of the Singapore Botanic Gardens, which is home to 60,000 orchids of various colors and hybrids. Your last stop is the neighborhood of Little India, where you can take in the lively atmosphere and delicious scents coming out of the many Indian restaurants. When your tour ends, you’ll have a helpful overview of the city so you can decide where you want to return later to explore in more depth on your own.
We took an afternoon tour and it was exactly what the tour-guide told us in the beginning: I will do my best to give you an impression of what to expect that if you go to town later you will have some idea where to go".
This tour is a must do if visiting Singapore!! You see the main things you would want to see without the worry of taxi’s or getting there!! It is only for a Morning too so if you’re limited to time, it’s perfect to cram a lot in and leave the afternoon for other things!
The guide was brilliant, knowledgable, friendly, had a sense of humour and told us so much about Singapore!! A credit to the company!!! Thank you
Great orientation tour of the city. Catherine, tour guide, was WONDERFUL! She was positive, insightful, humorous and knowledgeable! Highly recommend this tour! the company was organized from hotel pick up to tour to hotel drop off!
A first class tour well organised which introduces visitors to Singapore and its main attractions, well organised with knowledgeable guide and air-conditioned double decker coach. You could not ask for more and very good value, really appreciated hotel pick up and drop off by mini coach.
Four of us spent the afternoon with Guide Linda Chan and had a truly marvelous time. Linda is quite a character and her know ledge of Singapore history is incredible. Transport for hotel pickup was on time, clean and air conditioned. The tour bus was smooth and comfortable. The tour took us all through Singapore for a good overview to include Little India, China town, a large Buddhist Temple, the Merlion statue and the Orchid Garden at the Botanic Garden. Linda's sense of humor helped us along our way and her presentations were excellent. We left the tour at Little India to walk about and get some early dinner. The tour was very good and well worth the time and money and Linda was GREAT!
