What To Expect

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.

Traveler Tips

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!
I really recommend this trip for those that have limited time and want to familiarize with Singapore in a short time.
Most of it was fine but whoever thought 20 minutes at the orchid gardens was enough needs to realise even an hour isn’t really enough to take in such beauty.

Informative and engaging tour!
Kelly_W, May 2022
This was a fantastic tour. Our guide was incredibly informative, and told us the history and socio-demographic breakdown of Singapore, along with explaining how the different religious groups pray when we visited a temple. Would highly recommend!

We found the City Tour to be excellent. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and took us to a number of key locations and we were able to walk around as well. Would highly recommend the tour for first timers to Singapore. Great value for money.

Lucie_S, Mar 2020
The guide was great with a lot of knowledge that was probably only thing i enjoyed. I would say, now from my own experience, It is better going without a tour. You can easily take metro/subway. Cheap and easy. Especially Marina bay where everything is just around (Supertree, flyer, gardens..) Your time will not be limited because with the tour they stop on the opposite side just to take pictures. The temple, little India are stops I would skip at all. I was excited to visit Orchid garden but it was raining heavily and you know.. Tour wouldn't wait until it stops... So I saw nothing from the garden which was the main point of booking this tour. You cen get there using metro and if it rains you can wait... Because it stopped like 10 min. after we left to little India.. Which again, nothing interesting. It is just a market with no time to browse or shop anyway. You just walk through small, smelly aisle. Tea tasting... Not bad but nothing special. Just go sit down and enjoy a cup of tea somewhere else.

Bad tour
German_A, Feb 2020
Visited very little places, most of which were closed for being a sunday. The guide wasnt very helpful and was angry most of time. He left even before the tour was over
Response from Host, Feb 2020
Thank you for your feedback, and we apologize for not bring you a pleasant experience. At end of the tour, we usually arrange different vehicles to send guests back to different hotels, and our guide will follow the coach back to the tour center, which may be the reason you did not see the tour guide at the end of the tour.
