We attended this tour on January 18th 2017. It provided a great but sad insite into the history of Changi and the war in Singapore. Our guide Sharul was fantastic with his story telling, and commentary throughout the tour. Even though war is nothing to celebrate, it is important not to forget the impact that this war had in shaping Singapore as it is today. I am Australian, and knowing the sacrifice that many Australian soldiers made to the war in Singapore, really filling in the gaps of knowledge I had about the war. This tour is highly recommended for all, as a half day tour while you visit Singapore.
The tour was really interesting and Joanne the guide was excellent. It was very worth while

My Husband and I enjoyed this Walking tour on our recent visit to Singapore. We were to meet the tour guide Helena and others at a MRT station where we went on a bus to The Changi WWII War Museum. The guide was extremely informative and added a personal touch with her own family experiences and how they survived. We were driven past the Changi prison and on to sights of where some of the tragic events had happened. The Museum was amazing. Helena told us the highlights of what is on display at the Museum and then we had time to go into it in more detail at our leisure. There were many stories of the Prisoners and how they spent their time in Prison. Some people on the tour felt there was not enough time to take in all the information so they stayed on and took local transport at their own cost when they had finished. It was good to have that flexibility. As it was nearly the Chinese New Year, the guide was able to explain some of the customs that the Singapore people share at this special time. I highly recommend this tour to Adults not suitable for children.
We thought Joanne was a wonderful guide who told the Changi story from both an historical and personal side.
Really enjoyed this trip as my uncle was a POW there. Unable to get any details about him but he did survive and there were others on the trip with relatives that were able to get information as they had not survived. The guide was very informative and we really enjoyed it.

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.
A must for all to see. Very moving experience Sharoul was the best tour guide. Answered every question.. the museum is going to be closed for 2 years from February 2017 for 2 years for renovations so go before then.
Excellent. An interesting and moving experience. A helpful and knowledgable guide explained all one needed to know.
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.
Very informative tour - we learnt lots! Our guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about sharing the effects of the war on her Singapore.
This was a ver interesting and informative tour, quite emotional too
If you love history and ready to shed a tear as I did and with a tour guide as knowledgable as Helene you won't be disappointed!
This was an outstanding tour conducted by a passionate and knowledgeable local. Thank you so much, Helena, for a moving experience.

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.
Helena was a very interesting tour guide and I really appreciated her knowledge and explanations of the Fall of Singapore in 1942 and in particular the aftermath suffered by not only the Australian and other Allied forces, but also the impact on the people living in Singapore. Learning about what happened at Changi Beach and in the PoW camps should be very important to us all and touring the Changi Museum helped in increasing our awareness of the terrible suffering of those interned in these camps during WW2. Thank you for a very valuable history lesson.
Excellent tour with engaging guide Wei Wei. She was full of interesting information and conducted the tour in a very professional, respectful way. Very moving museum. Highly recommended tour
The guide was very knowledgeable and informative, well worth going on.
Detailed narratives from the guide who is also passionate and helpful.
Very educational and enlightening. The guide Helena was excellent.
The tour and our enthusiastic guide was excellent. The Changi museum and memorial were informative and very moving brought tears to the eyes.
Really interesting morning. Tour was exactly how it was described - found it quite moving finding out what happened during WW2. Wui Wui, our Guide, was brilliant! She certainly knew her stuff, any question asked was answered and didn't feel rushed. The Tour ended at Changi War Museum, where you could stay and see the displays in more detail, however, I felt that Wui Wui covered everything so well. The bus takes you back to the MRT station where they pick you up from. If you have the time - go and see
Outstanding excursion. Amazing amount of info and knowledge shared by guide.
Excellent tour from the organization to the guide telling us informative and personal stories! A great afternoon out which gave me more insight into what these people sacrificed for us!
