Our guide was very informative. Changi is a very emotional 'step back in time' and it certainly makes you think. It is very humbling to see pictures and read stories about the suffering which people endured.
We would suggest all should visit and remember.

This tour was fantastic. Our tour guide Margaret was wonderful with loads of knowledge and information. A very emotional day, where we learnt more about the history of Changi and the atrocities that ooh place. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Singapore. Thanks again Margaret your knowledge was amazing and you educated us about Singapore in general too!

Our personal guide and our chauffeur helped to make this very emotional trip a lovely experience. Changi Museum is very explicit, hard on the senses, it will make you weep, but our lovely guide made it bearable by her sympathetic approach. A must for anyone interested in WWII history.


4 star rating: Recommended February 2017

The Changi Musuem is very interesting. As a US citizen I knew very little about Singapore and WWII. It was interesting to see how the Japanese treated the people of Singapore and how the community lived through occupation. Our guide, Lynette, was excellent. We went to two different villages to see how people lived outside the main area of Singapore, also very interesting. In one village a gentleman invited us in to see the inside of a government apartment. Our last stop was Arab street, where we decided to end the tour and stay for lunch and shopping. The only thing I would change is the length of the tour, I would make it longer.

A Tour to take if you are interested in the war history of Singapore. Pricilla was our Guide and she was great telling us the stories behind the exhibits.

Our tour guide was very informative about life in Singapore and took us to experience how they lived. We even walked through a "suburb" to see how they live in shop in the hi rises.
The tour mainly focused on their way of life which was different from tours I have been on all around the world.

Very good overview of Changi and the effect of the war on Singapore. Visit to the Malay area was worthwhile too. Guide knowledgable and friendly.

A nice allround trip - Guide was extremely pleasant and very well informed -- Disappointing to realise the original Changi Chapel is in Canberra and only got to see a copy, but rest of museum was great
