Gene, our tour guide, was friendly and informative. It was great way to spend the first day of trip doing this to get oriented and overview of city.

I want to express how happy I was with my entire day in Singapore. I arrived on a cruise ship and wanted to see Singapore so decided to spend 1 night as that was all I was able to do. Because my time was so limited I wanted to see as much as I could in the short time I was there. It was amazing. I arranged for a private pick up at the cruise terminal to take us to our hotel. I then arranged a private 4 hour tour of the city and then also did a night river cruise. Everything went like clock work. Each leg of my days journey was a different person and each time the guide I was with contacted the next person and made full arrangements for the drop off and pick up. It was amazing. I was very impressed. Thank you so much for making my day in Singapore so memorable.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2017

Our guide was very knowledgeable and showed us a lot in a short period of time. She was super friendly and spoke great English. We got a brief history of Singapore and covered the area down near the Marina Bay and financial district fairly quickly. Had time to go to Chinatown and the botanic gardens to see the beautiful orchids as well. Since Singapore has largely been rebuilt in the last 50-60 years there's not a ton of historical sights so a half day was the perfect amount of time - anything longer might have been overkill. I'd definitely recommend this tour, especially if it is your first time in Singapore.

Garry was an excellent guide and was very mindful of my sore knee.....adjusting our itinerary accordingly. He was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of insight into life in Singpaore and it's storied history. We got to see many of the major sights and even stopped by the Singapore National Eye Centre at my request. Would highly recommend this tour and especially Garry as guide.

Jean was great. Her knowledge of the city and especially the gardens was fantastic. We were driven in a minivan that was clean and comfortable and visited numerous areas of interest to us. It's always great to go at your own pace instead of trying to keep up with a large tour. That's especially true for me as I have some mobility issues.
