I thought this trip was very informative about the WW11 invasion by the Japanese. Wina our guide was very knowledgeable and the Changhi museum certainly brought home the sadness and suffering so many people endured and what a pointless exercise WAR is and how the future generation of all nations should be made aware of. It was even more poignant having this trip on Remembrance Day.
I would recommend anyone visiting Singapore to do one of these trips.
The guide had very good English and had a lot of knowledge to share, it also provides something quite different from what the city part of Singapore gives you. So if you think walking around the malls, hotels or shops etc started to get boring this could be a really good choice.
Very knowledgeable guide who gave some personal stories. Would recommend
Really good historical tour. Just getting there in the taxi and returning on the train was good value. Met great people, learned lots, saw heaps. We finished at the Museum - top rate. If you are at all interested in the war events, do go.
A really good tour, well organised and very informative even though it is a very sad piece of history.
The tour guide was amazing really informative of the history of the war and sites
A very good excursion. The guide Carol Dragon was superb and brought everything to life
The tour was was captivating from start to finish. The guide was very knowledgeable with the history of all aspects of the Changi prison area and the Australians that were POW's here. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Singapore
This was a great tour. The guide was really informative. I thought the itinerary was really well put together with the stops and information given on each stop. You could tell the guide was passionate about the subject. The stops we took were great and the museum was really worth it.
A great tour for a good overview of the events and places of Singapore during WW2. Obviously the topics covered can be quite somber, however our guide Helena had a vibrant personality and a great sense of humour that really added to the experience, she also inc. great info about life in SNG today.
This was a brilliant tour extremely informative and I have to say the best tour guide I have ever met. She didn't just babble on questions were answered so much Information was given in a way that you weren't bored. It's a place to visit to learn about how Singapore coped during the war my Grandfather was a POW there so it was important for me personally that his story was told. I can't recommend this enough the tour price was also excellent bearing in mind how long it was.
This would have to be the best tour i have done with viator. Our travel guide carole was so full of information and made me feel very welcome and always asked if i was uuderstanding the tour and if i had any questions to feel free to ask her. I would recomend this tour for every australian who goes to singapore to do this tour to understand the part our country played in thus war. Very moving and emotional
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.
