Perfect food tour and history lesson.
alexandertevans, May 2023
Gerry did a fantastic job showing us the three neighbourhoods. Along the way he gave us a history lesson of Singapore and shared his experiences living there. We stop three times to eat but the first two stops in Little India and Chinatown are where you feast. We had a wide variety of food from both places and were provided any kind of drinks that we wanted. I would highly recommend this tour.
Fantastic guide, delicious food, and an interesting tour!!
susie_r, May 2023
We were only in Singapore for 2 days so decided to book this foodie tour. Our guide, Gerry was wonderful!! He grew up in Singapore so he was able to tell us some very interesting things about the culture and the 3 ethnic neighborhoods we visited. We sampled the local street foods in each neighborhood and enjoyed a variety of local beers. It was a delicious feast!! We also had the opportunity to use the subway and bus which was helpful to learn how to navigate. Gerry is very friendly and a most Interesting guide, this was a great introduction to the culture and Singaporean life!!
Excellent Trip starter to Singapore!
Diwakar_R, May 2023
Had an awesome time with Gerry on this tour. The vibe was laidback and with hotel pickup/drop very very convenient. Gerry took us through 3 main areas representing the main cultures of Singapore and provided anecdotes and history for an enjoyable time. If you have never been out for street food and hawker centers overwhelm you, start your trip with this tour! Who knows, with all the info from Gerry you will be visiting some others on your own!
Amazing cultural and culinary experience!
Karthicka_S, Apr 2023
Wonderful tour! Our guide, Gerrymandering, was wonderful. There was a great combination of foods, as well as information and history about the neighborhoods. It's a great experience when you first get to Singapore as well because you will get great tips for the rest of your trip.
Singapore Food Tour
Mary_Z, Apr 2023
Every aspect of our tour was Fabulous. Our guide Gerry confirmed pick up time and location the day before. On tour, we sampled a huge variety of foods. My favorite was a very fresh and delicious mango lassi, and we greatly enjoyed sampling durian. Gerry was great at explaining the variety and melding of ethnicities and religions in Singapore. He also showed us historical photos of various places we visited. We traveled between neighborhoods using subway and buses, which enhanced our confidence in later using these transportation options indefinitely. “Thank you, Gerry” for a 5-star introduction to Singapore!
Fantastic Singapore- Fantastic local knowledge
chelsea_e, Apr 2023
Had a great time with Gerry today. Exploring Singapore, and all the best food spots. Fantastic to chat to, very knowledgeable. We had lots of laughs and got to see the real Singapore. Thanks for an awesome time. When we come back we will be sure to catch up again!
Wonderful historic, culinary and artistic tour
kate0607, Apr 2023
Gerry led a wonderfully informative tour of 3 ethnically distinct neighborhoods, telling us a lot about the history of each place as well as of course giving us a bountiful sampler of their food (especially Chinese and Indian). We also had the opportunity to familiarize ourselves with public art and transportation while on his tour. It was the perfect first day introduction to Singapore!
Great tour with all the trappings included
Michael_Z, Mar 2023
Gerry was a great guide who was very easy to get along with. He’s a true local who grew up here and his stories of the area through years are great. The food is as always amazing. Would recommend not eating beforehand since you will get food at two hawker centers and it’s a lot at both (there were four people in our tour group and we weren’t about to finish the food).

Must Do!
Malik_M, Feb 2023
I wanted our first tour/excursion in Singapore to give us a general idea of the city, how to navigate it, and where good places to eat and visit were, and this tour provided all of that and more. First and foremost, Gerry is a native, has been there for 50 years and you can tell he not only loves this country but has build strong relationships with them as well. When visiting the Hawker centers, he was like a mini celeb, many ppl knew him which further provides autheticity to his tour. We also got to navigate the subway system (which is extremely clean and modern), and helped us save money the other days we were in Singapore. If you are looking to do a tour in Singapore, start with this one. You will get your moneys worth after the first visit to China Town. There was soo much food, we had to stop eating.
The food was great, but...
Elizabeth_G, Feb 2023
The food was great, but our guide grew up in Singapore and he had tons to share about the city and how the different ethnic cultures live together. It was a fab tour that also showed us around the city and left us very full
Great tour!!
Susan_B, Feb 2023
Our guide Gerry made the experience memorable. He was friendly and knowledgeable and seemed excited to share details about the history of Singapore. Also come hungry!! So many different food tastings throughout the tour.
jonita_w, Feb 2023
Our host Greey was awesome. We learned so much about the many cultures of Singapore. Our host made sure all was well fed, hydrated and educated. A most do tour.
Excellent and fun tour!...
Dean_O, Feb 2023
Excellent and fun tour! Gerry is a great guide who takes you to some hawker centers that most tourists would not dare try. Not only do you get to try a lot of different foods, he shares stories about what makes Singapore the city state that it is today. Highly recommend!
Fun Singapore food tour
Alison_T, Feb 2023
Great to learn about the different neighbourhoods and to share the food at each location, Gerry was a fantastic guide - thankyou!
Authentic Local Experience
Karin_S, Feb 2023
This is a TRUE eat like a local tour. If you want fancy…. This is not it. If you want authentic, this is it. Great experience with Gerry going to the three area do Singapore. Gerry provided great insight into Singapore as well as the food. A must do!
Joyce_H, Feb 2023
Gerry, our guide was the best. He was very knowledgeable & passionate, as he shared the history and great spirit of this very beautiful country. it was evident that Gerry loves what he does. This is not just a job but an opportunity to present his beloved country and it's people. It was an unforgettable tour. Lee & Joyce
Amazing tour - fab guide
kateselvaratnam, Feb 2023
Absolutely amazing tour with Gerry. One of the highlights of our 3 week trip to Asia. So much more than a food tour - learned so much about the history and culture of the 3 neighbourhoods we visited. Then the food - oh my word! So much of it and everything was delicious. Cannot recommend this tour enough. Money and time well spent! Gerry is so knowledgeable and so much fun to spend time with!
Denise_B, Feb 2023
This was a wonderful trip , Gerry could not have been more accommodating, fun or welcoming. Food was incredible and very plentiful as were the drinks. Can not recommend this highly enough.

The absolute best food & culture tour
Rita_O, Feb 2023
This is much more than a great food tour. Jerry will fill you with facts and stories about Singapore but do it in such a laid back, conversational way that you won't even notice all that history slipping right on down along with all that fabulous food. You will eat at places you would not have chosen as a tourist and be amazed at how good the food is from the small "mom and pop" venders and at how comfortable you feel enjoying the dishes these humble shops offer. You will ride on the metro and wander down small streets; hop on a bus and amble through gigantic malls. This is not like any food tour you've ever taken and we would give it 10 stars if we could. The food choices are varied and delicious and we were stuffed half way through the first stop with 2 more to go. There must have been a dozen different selections in Chinatown and another dozen in Little India. We enjoyed dessert in the Malay area of Singapore. This review feels so inadequate in conveying how great this tour is but if you have a day in Singapore then this needs to be at the top of your list of things to do.
Absolutely Wonderful
Robin_O, Feb 2023
Absolutely fantastic. We did this tour on our first day in Singapore and I learned so much about the city’ it’s people’ it’s food’ it’s culture, etc. Gerry was wonderful and very well educated. I highly recommend this tour.
Loved it!!!
LINDA_M, Jan 2023
Gerry was great. He contacted me the day before the tour to verify time and pickup location. The day of the tour he contacted me again to let me know he would be a little early. His was very personable and provided great information on the area and history. The food provided quantity and quality was outstanding. What a wonderful way to be introduced to different cultural cuisines. I would do the tour again in a heart beat.

Don’t miss this tour
Lyn_B, Jan 2023
Without a doubt this was one of the best food tours we’ve ever taken. It was an authentic experience as we ate in hawker markets used by locals for over 50 years. Gerry gave us an insight into each ethnic neighbourhood and detailed the changes that time has brought to them. The food was delicious and plentiful and Gerry went out of his way to ensure anyone with dietary restrictions could still enjoy the experience. His communication before and during the tour was outstanding. If you have a free night in Singapore I would highly recommend this tour. We’ll be going again!
10/10 wonderful
Carly_B, Dec 2022
This tour was 10/10! Gerry made trying all the hawker center foods accessible and really easy. Rather than going on your own and trying one or two dishes, he made it possible to really get the full experience and try many things - all of which were awesome! He was also super informative about the areas and history. The best part was the fact that everywhere you went Gerry seemed to really know people which made us feel like true travels immersed in the community.
Delicious food and excellent guide (Gerry)
David_M, Dec 2022
Gerry was terrific host and planned out the day perfectly. The food was excellent and many options to choose from. The history and stories for each neighborhood brought it all to life
