Well worth it! Gerry was very communicative and punctual. He asked if we had any special requests and then we proceeded to go to 3 different Hawkers food courts that were local places, not touristy. Gerry was thoughtful to bring wipes to clean the tables and our hands. Great selection of food and drink choices! I would recommend to not eat breakfast that day! My husband and I felt this was our best day in Singapore!

We had a very enjoyable night with our guides, Gerry and Jo. They were very hospitable and forthcoming in helping us to appreciate Singaporean culture. We were able to taste an array of traditional Chinese foods, all of which were very tasty and foods we would not have been able to readily source on our own. We would highly recommend this tour.

It is worth every cent, Gerry and Jo were very punctual with the pick up time!

Everything was perfect, the food, the beer, our conversations and walking around Chinatown was awesome!
More than appreciating all of the above, the passion our guides showed for what they were doing was very important... since they make this tour not only to show us the food but also to show us a bit of their history, and that of the fading hawker food disappearing to the fast food industry...

I recommend this trip with no reserves, I would do it again if I could!

Thanks Gerry and Jo for the marvellous time spent with you

What can I say that hasn't already been said? Gerry and Jo were phenomenal hosts! Our group was small and the setting was intimate. It really felt like Gerry and Jo were long time friends who happened to take us out and show us where the locals hang out and eat. It was such an amazing experience! Highly recommended! This food tour is not to miss!

Fantastic guides! Had an awesome time and would highly recommend to everyone who wants to get to know the traditional hawker food. Wonderful hosts and great food that we couldn't even finish because of the great variety.

We had a great evening with Gerry and Jo. It was quite different - more like a relaxing informal evening out with friends rather than a tour. My wife had never been to Little India so we chose to go there. Gerry was a knowledgeable host and we visited three different places for snacks and food. The beer was cold, the food was spicy and aromatic and the company was warm. Highly recommended.

We had a great time! Our tour guide Gerry was amazing! He took us to the Indian section of town. The five of us had fantastic food with great conversation. Gerry is very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Singapore. I would definitely do a tour with him again in another section of town.

Amazing. tour. The best thing we did in Singapore. Gerry and Jo were fantastic and their passion for food,Chinatown and guests were clearly obvious. The food amazing and we were taken to some great food eating spots that only locals frequent. If you like Asian foods, local beers, this tour is for you. Do not eat before this tour and bring your APPETITE..

Great tour - definitely worth doing. Gerry and Jill were fantastic - so informative, accommodating and friendly. This was the highlight of our min-break in Singapore. Gerry and Jill happily took us through Chinatown and introduced us to some amazing food that we would not have otherwise found - we went back the next day by ourselves and had lunch in Chinatown again and explored some places that they had shown us. If you're not sure what hawker centres have to offer, not sure what to order because you don't know what it is or feel a bit confronted by walking in to a hawkers centre, then this tour is for you! Biggest thanks to Gerry and Jill - well done!!

This was our favorite part of the trip. We recommend this tour for anyone interested in having an authentic experience with local people, food and culture. The food choices are plentiful and can align with any explorer and #39;s pallet. By the end of the day, we felt like we were catching up with old friends.

We had a great afternoon with Gerry and his wife. They showed us the Muslim section of Singapore which was alive with activity during Ramidan. Eat some great food in the local food court. We even met their young son and family. A great experience. We would highly recommend them.

Gerry and Jo’s Singapore Foodsters Hawker tour was outstanding, far exceeding expectations. As the other reviewers have mentioned, spending time with Gerry and Jo was like being with longtime friends. At the end of the tour my traveling companion and I looked at each other and said “no one will believe how exceptional our tour was.” The tour deserves more than the maximum five stars. Gerry met us at our hotel, on schedule, having confirmed details with us the previous day. Because it was the first day of Ramadan, as Gerry advised us, in addition to some great Hawker food courts, we could attend the month-long Ramadan festival. We chose to start the tour in the Muslim area. Other options were provided, but the Muslim area sounded the most interesting to us. En route to the Muslim area, Gerry took us though the non-touristy sections of Singapore; seeing these parts of Singapore was also a treat. Gerry’s wife, Jo, joined us at the Hawker court and, as we sampled many delicious dishes, and toured the colorful, crowded, enchanting Ramadan festival, Gerry and Jo provided information about Singapore, willing to answer any question we had. They showed a greater knowledge of events in our country than many of our own citizens. I consider this tour a must for anyone traveling to Singapore, and will engage Gerry’s services again should my travels take me to Singapore. If, in the review section, there is an opportunity to rank the tour, or Gerry and Jo, they would always get the highest marks from my traveling companion and myself. If this tour is an example of the high quality of Viator Tours, I look forward to many tours in the future. Thank you!!!

A fun evening out with good food and great company! The tour gave us insights into the food and culture of this wonderful city. As others have mentioned, it is more like being shown around a new city by close friends than a tourist activity. Gerry and Jo make great company. Another highlight was getting to chat with the owners of the hawker stands. My only regret was that my stomach isn't big enough to take on board all the tantalising food we saw!

As other reviewers have said, if there is one thing to do in Singapore, then this tour is it!
Gerry was very accomodating and met us exactly on time. The transfers were speedy and we were soon enjoying some of the best secrets Gerry tailored the tour to our preferrences after our first conversation in the hotel. Being able to discuss food preferences prior to commencing the tour was excellent. With so many hawker centres focussing on either Chinese, Indian or Muslim influences our preference was for Singapore/Chinese cuisine. Gerry took us on a walking tour around three places and we had a splendid variety of food to sample. Gerry was engaging and interested in us as a cople, not just on our food preferences, this made for a very enjoyable morning that passed far too quickly.
One of the interesting things was seeing the line at the 'Michelin Star' hawker stall, then going round to the next aisle to watch the hawker proprietors preparing their dishes. Whilst others were waiting in hour long queues or more, we were treated to an absolute feast of duck, chicken and pork from froma tiny stall where all the meats were prepared on site, rather than being brought in from an outside kitchen.
Would I recommend this tour? Absoutely! If you don't do this in Singapore then you have missed an opportunity to sample street food at it's absolute best.
Gerry's parting comment was also very nice. He said he never does the our a second time for people returning to Singapore, he said I meet you as friends and we go out to eat - Absolutely, what a fantastice experience and the best way tp spend half a day.
Cheers Gerry!

This tour offers options for the type of food highlighted. We chose to focus on Indian food and our tour guide Gerry offered a wealth of experience in Singapore and the history of the local cultures. The Indian food was varied and very tasty. Gerry was an excellent guide and we enjoyed interacting with him for a personal and in-depth view of Singapore, the people and the food. Highly recommended.

If we had not booked this tour, we would have walked into the Hawker stall area, looked around once, and walked out. This tour opened our eyes to authentic Chinese quinine. Our guide, Gerry, was so knowledgeable and worldly. His wife Jo met us along the way. They. ifnformed us of a way of life which will, unfortunately, become a lost art over time. Our food was delicious--duck, chicken, rice, oyster cakes, vegetables, carrot cake, century egg, shaved ice with fruit, and more. We enjoyed every morsel. This is our secod Viator Tour. We have not been disappointed. There will be more in our future.
