Starting point for this tour was from a train station about an hour out of city. I was provided with clear instructions as to how to get there when I quieried it in advance. Tour guide was friendly and very knowledgable. She showed such compassion when relaying stories of prisoner treatment and gave insight into a Japanese culture at that time. Tour finished at starting point, so return into city was easy.

Our guide, Joo Ling was brilliant. She gave us just the right blend of historical facts and her personal and family background that made the horror of Changi prison during WWII come alive for our group of mostly Australians in a sensitive and respectful way. Arrangements were simple and seamless, the meeting point convenient, the bus clean and efficient and the places we visited were interesting and well interpreted. If you wanted to ensure the success of the restaurant at the site of the Johore Battery gun, you could easily add lunch to the tour cost - I'm sure that many of us were ready for lunch by that time.

This tour was awesome - probably the highlight of our trip to Singapore. Our guide was informative, friendly and he made the whole experience personal by telling us stories of how the war impacted his family. I don't have relatives who were affected by WWII in Singapore, but I was emotionally hit bit time with the stores and pictures told in the museum. Absolutely worth the investment. Would definitely go again and recommend to anyone who is remotely interested in this sort of tour.
