True cultural experience
Thomas_M, Feb 2022
Gerald took us to a hawker centre in Little Indiana and one in Chinatown. We learned so much about Singapore and were deep in the culture. We would have never known about or gone to the places he took us if we were on our own. We also went to a dessert shop in China town for some interesting desserts. If you want to experience what the true locals eat and do, book your tour with Gerald.
So fun!

So much food and so much fun
traveltexas04, Nov 2019
Jerry picked us up at our hotel with another couple. He was so full of information, and so very proud of his heritage in Singapore! We loved going to a 'local' hawker center, and his choice of dishes was outstanding. He had suggestions, and also was very kind with our requests. We walked, talked and learned. Highly recommend this tour!
Great dinner
Blaine_L, Oct 2019
Great tour. My favorite tours in any location are always the food tours. Gerry is passionate about his culture and his neighborhood. He shared with us his grandmother's favorite dish as well as other family favorites. Great introduction to Singapore.
Great tour ... lots of fun.

Wonderful experience, top notch guides!
Jennifer_P, Sep 2019
We could not have asked for better hosts! Gerry and Jo were so knowledgeable, but also so fun to hang out with! We loved how committed they were to protecting the traditional hawker culture. Really just one of the best tours we’ve ever taken anywhere in our travels (and we’ve done a lot of food tours in lots of countries)! We can’t recommend this tour highly enough!
Enjoying the Real Singapore

A genuine food tour with a local guide
Allan_B, Aug 2019
Our guide, Gerry, gave us a tour of 2 very genuine hawker markets in Chinatown. Gerry grew up in the first market and provided share plates of too many dishes to remember as well as the history of hawker markets and of the vendors in this market. The second market was slightly different but just as good. Between each market we sampled other food delicacies and tropical fruits. At the end of the tour Gerry drove us to our next tour saving us the challenge of using the MRT. Compared to other food tours we have taken, this tour was in a class of its own. well done Gerry.
Singapore Highlight

Gerry and his lovely wife gave us an amazing experience eating the local food at the hawker centres . They are very genuine people, sharing their knowledge about day to day life in Singapore , highly recommend this experience , you won’t be disappointed
Highlight of our visit!
Laura_H, Jul 2019
This tour was our favorite experience of our visit. We learned about Singapore and tasted a number of unique and delicious local dishes, drinks, fruits, and desserts. Gerry was open and insightful — a delight. I would highly recommend this experience, but arrive hungry!
Fun and Fabulous
580stu, Jul 2019
Best way to experience Singapore! This tour was a big surprise for us. We knew about the food in Singapore.. but what we learned was more! The tour guide Gerry provided us with valuable information on history, culture and geography that explained the various foods people eat and why. He made us feel so comfortable in the hawker market while all the crazy things were going on around us. We loved sitting with the 2 other couples on our tour and learning about Singapore together. He made it fun and very interesting. The food itself was amazing and we headed back the next day for more on our own with confidence to make our way through the market! I’d recommend to anyone visiting this beautiful city!!
Relaxed and friendly
Russell T, Jul 2019
We took the tour on Wednesday morning. Gerry arrived at our hotel right on time and started chatting easily with us straight away. He took us to some big hawker markets and bought us a good selection of foods, hot and cold drinks and desserts. This time we were the only 2 on his tour, which was great for us as we had his undivided attention. Thanks for this great experience Gerry!
Trip with an enthusiastic guide
Ulrich_S, Jul 2019
Fantastic experience. Gerry really knows what to show his guests. Don‘t eat anything in advance... ..
Great food tour. Delicious food and great insight from a local's persective.
Marsh2, Jun 2019
Gerry, our tour guide was fantastic. He is very knowledgeable of the local Hawker centers and Chinatown specially. He is efficient, very passionate of Singapore, friendly, and knew exactly which dishes to order which presented a wide variety of the diverse cuisine in Singapore. He gives you a local's perspective of food, culture and the local sights in Singapore. Don't miss the shaved ice dessert after your guided walk thru Chinatown.
Whole Lotta' Food
Michael A, May 2019
I would strongly suggest you do NOT eat before you take this tour! There was so much food and drink to sample and enjoy. Our guide, Gerry, was outstanding. Prompt, friendly and great communication prior to the this excursion made us feel so comfortable and we quickly became friends for the day. Food is the way people connect with other cultures and this tour satisfies your curiosity and appetite, and builds friendships as well.

Tour was amazing. We tried a range of dishes and drinks. Gerry has a wealth of knowledge and was able to answer any questions.
Best-best excursion in Singapore!
ir126, Jan 2019
I highly recommend to do that excursion! You will test interesting and tasty local food and will know a lot of new. We would like especially dim sum, satay and bak kwa. Bak kwa we have tasted first time and even come back next day in order to taste again! Gerry and Jo have been so attentive and kind hosts! We even got food presents from them! And also it was plenty interesting information about everything: food, culture, country. Thanks, thanks again!

John_F, Jul 2018
This was an excellent discussion of not only the amazing foods we were introduced to, but also of general culture and life in Singapore. It was at the start of our trip and helped us think about our plans a little differently. Highly recommended!
This tour was fantastic. Wish we...
Elizabeth_k, Jun 2018
This tour was fantastic. Wish we had done it earlier in our stay. Great to try so many different foods and drinks. And to find your way around China Town. We were able to go back the next day by ourselves and know our way around. We had so much food to try, very generous serves. We were a group of 6 and couldn't eat all the beautiful food. We even had to say no to dessert!! Gerry was so knowledgeable and good fun, as was his wife Jo. If you are only going to do 1 tour in Singapore, make it this one. Thanks Gerry! Peter and Libby
