Overview

With this Singapore evening experience, you can enjoy the best of the city during the lively nighttime hours. Start with dinner of chicken rice or nasi goreng at a wonderful restaurant. Then board a traditional bumboat for a cruise on the Singapore River, and end at the Long Bar at Raffles Hotel where you can try the iconic Singapore Sling if you select the upgrade option when booking.
  • Evening Singapore tour including dinner
  • Sit down to a delicious Asian-inspired dinner
  • Take a cruise on the Singapore River aboard a bumboat
  • Upgrade to enjoy an included 'Singapore Sling', the legendary gin-based cocktail
After hotel pickup by coach, your evening tour starts with the drive through the city center. During the drive, admire an illuminated view of the Fountain of Wealth, the world’s biggest fountain, and cross the Benjamin Sheares Bridge for a glimpse of the downtown skyline. 

Once at your destination, sit down at a restaurant for your Asian-inspired dinner, which includes dishes like chicken rice or seafood nasi goreng (see below for a sample menu). Purchase any drinks you’d like from the bar. When you’re done eating, head to Clarke Quay to board a traditional bumboat, once used by public workers, for a cruise on the Singapore River.

Finally, make your way to the Long Bar at Raffles Hotel. If you select the upgrade option when booking, enjoy your own Singapore Sling, a combination of cherry brandy, gin and fresh juice. Your tour then ends with hotel drop-off.

I think this tour was let down by the dinner at the Copthorn Hotel. There were 7 of us and we were led to a nice table by the river. We did not know the other people and there was an awkward silence. The meal was terrible, cold and tasteless. For less money a meal in a Hawker centre would be amazing. The rest of the tour was great although we hardly had any interaction with the guide.

we were picked up on time dropped at another hotel where we had meal at table outside by water,very nice food was ok certainly better then going by other reviews although all 3 courses were dumped in front of us at once.taken by bus to quay where boarded bum boat for cruise around bay which was beautiful with the lights.then back to bus to raffles hotel where there was a long line to get into long bar but because we were in group tour got to by pass that which was wonderful.got there at 8.40 so no time to go to gift shop which was a pain but great atmosphere in the bar.had our singapore sling then another which took ages so sorry to tour guide who got held up overall a great night.dropped back in street beside hotel.dont no whether that was because guide and driver were annoyed because we were late and no aircon turned on in bus either.and guide didnt speak or say goodbye when he jumped out so i know what my guess would be. cant blame guests for slow bar service.but we didnt let that ruin a good night.

Slingpore Slings at Raffles

Our host for the night was great I cannot recall his name unfortunately. Dinner was ordinary but wonderful spot outside on edge of river. Some drinks and food were very slow to arrive. Boat trip was splendid some good photo opportunities. Raffles was excellent [not suitable for anyone with peanut allergies!]. It was wonderful to be in the tour and not have to wait in the long queue to get inside. Overall I enjoyed this tour if you want a foodie experience you will not get it from the dinner. As my hotel was next door to Raffles I stayed on and walked home. You can stay if you wish and are happy to make your own way home. Queue was still long to get in when I left Raffles. For me going to Raffles to have a Singapore Sling was on my bucket list so nothing else really matter apart from relaxing in the serenity of a hotel which is an institution!

The evening began when we dined outside along the river. It was a nice way to start. We then went to see the Marina Bay Sands Hotel and we went up the elevator to the observation deck (54th floor?)where a wonderful view of Singapore at night was all around us. We spent some time at Burgis Street shopping which was not particularly exciting, and finished off the evening at the Long Bar home of the Singapore Sling. It is also home to Not only $32 Singapore Slings, but also $15 beers!!! WOW, we felt it was a bit pricey, but loved throwing peanut shell on the floor.

We where 11 people on the tour. We drove 10min to a hotel at the river where we had a lovely meal outside at the river watching the sunset. Drinks are very expansive so we just had our water which came with the meal. Plenty of time we watche the Xmas display in and outside the hotel. Than it was time to Buggi night markets. If you don't like little streets, than next door is a big major Shopping center. Very nice to escape the hot humidity. After that off to Raffels for a Singapore Sling. We had our tickets booked without but decided to go after all with everybody. My husband does not drink it was possible to see that wonderful place and only purchase 1 cocktail. The most expansive one I ever had. But the surroundings reminded you on an old movie set. My husband was not too well for long walking due to a reasant operation so this trip gave us still time to enjoy Singapore by night and a authentic dinner and a bit markets for 30min.The tour gide gave us incredible comentrie about the how people live in Singapore. For this price it was worth every penny.

Dinner was just a simple meal. Tour guide was good and provided an interesting historical narration of the city while we drove through. Then took us to a place to get a view of the city at night which was appreciated as it rained the night before and was not able to get good pictures. Thanks for doing that.

The Dinner was not worth the money. There were too many people trying to get round a buffet counter so by the time you sat down to eat the food was cold.Also there was a lot of waiting around to actually board the coach initially.At the end of the trip we were waiting around again to be returned to our hotel as bus wasnt ready and waiting. We stopped at the Bugis Night Market not worth going as 25mins stop not really enough time to do anything worthwhile.Only saving grace fir this tour was the cocktail bar where we were able to get a great panoramic view of Marina Bay at night.

Awful from start to finish. If I could give no stars I would. Guide Joseph and I use this term loosely, was rude and was more interested in his mobile phone than his job. Food and restaurant wasn’t nice, cocktail finale was embarrassing as there was a private function so we we shoved in a corner.
