This was a great tour. We had our own guide that allowed us to spend as much time as we wanted at each location we went. The dinner was good and unique, even though it was a set menu. We had a change to interact with a very knowledgeable guide and he was able to answer every question we had, and interjected antidotes that you wouldn't get in a larger group. The tour of Raffles was great. We had plenty of time to enjoy a Singapore Sling, which was included. The guide suggested several great locations for pictures. This tour was well worth the money.
Wonderful the highlights of our holiday!!!!The tour was made extra special by having the driver and guide we had. I hope I have remembered her name correctly! Friday was her name.
My tour operator Jean was amazing I did the day tour with her as well.
Once again, we got the same tour guide, Andrew.
First he brought us to the place where have so many selection for seafood lover like us. There we could see the hotel we are staying, Marina Bay Sands. Beautiful view I could say.
and later, another driver and him and my family, drove around the city area,
he provided a lot of information about the history of Singapore,
the stops around Raffles Hotel and the place where the nightmarket was great.
He even added a great stop for us in the merlion. It was the best add on. A laser light shop from the Marina Bay Hotel. This is a great view from that point of view at night.
Thank you Andrew.
Fantastic. Denis our guide was wonderful. We learnt heaps and it was a very personal tour with just us and the guide.
Enjoyed the romantic night very much. 5+ private tour!
Terry was an excellent guide. He listened to us, took note of our physical restrictions and devised a wonderful informative evening with many pleasant experiences. Would do it again in a heartbeat! We came back to the hotel smiling! Thanks Terry!
Great. Guide Priscilla was very knowledgeable. Food at restaurant was good. Loved the Singapore Sling. A very enjoyable evening.
Good tour with very knowledgable and informative guide. One negative was the meal, we were rushed through our meal of what i suspect is speciallly laid on for westerners, would be much better to be able to take some more time and get something more of a local flavour.

The evening was very enjoyable, but the reason this did not get 4 stars was the restaurant at the quay. The meal was not enough for two people, and for a private tour for the money paid the quality of the meal was not good enough. Also we were not on the first row of tables by the dinner, ourselves and another Viator group were also on the second row away from the river. The reason this got 3 stars and not 1 is the tour guide I had, absolute brilliant, very nice and charming and he gave very concise and detailed tour about the local area and history and was very accommodating and polite to our needs. He should be given a bonus, in all my years of travel I have never met anyone more courteous or kind.

Enjoyed the personal touch of having a private tour. However, make sure you say what sort of dinner you want. I ended up having a Chinese dinner with a lot of seafood I was unable to eat, so that was disappointing. Singapore Sling very nice. I did expect more interaction from the guide but they just dropped us off at places and left us.

A better choice for dinner - would rather see a more Singapore-specific cuisine included. As it was, the meal was exactly the same as one I would have cooked myself.
Tour part was excellent. The guide was very pleasant and informative. The choice of restaurant was disappointing. We ate in a back room of a run down establishment. The food was mediocre.
We really did enjoy the trip around the wonderful city of Singapore and Pricilla gave a great explanation of the history. But we felt we were being rushed especially over dinner and understood it was a 4 hour session but it was all over in 3. The driver was great. Thank you
Meal left a little to be desired, but private tour was very good.
The tour started at an extremely low-class restaurant called Tian Tian where the food was largely inedible. The area was run down and a poor representation of Singapore. The 4 members of our group were appalled at the standard of food and we all left hungry. Attempts to order something different fell on deaf ears and the service was brusque and unfriendly. All in all, the meal was a total disaster and an insult to the upmarket concept of a private tour!
The Bugis St markets section of the tour was designed to take far too long and was of limited interest. 30 minutes would have been plenty of time.
Our tour of Raffles Hotel was no different from the non-private tour except we were a smaller group. We thought private meant that we would have access to things the non-private tour didn't. 10-15 minutes was enough time.
Our tour was not worth the money and we would be demanding a refund had our lovely tour guide, Angela, not been able to arrange for us to see the light show in the gardens instead of aimlessly roaming Bugis St.
We would not recommend this tour, as advertised, to anyone! It was a relief to return to our hotel to obtain some acceptable food.
Angela is the only reason this tour even received one star! It must be re-thought as it gives Viator a bad name.
