Splendour of Colonial Singapore Walking Tour with Lunch

5. Splendour of Colonial Singapore Walking Tour with Lunch

On this walking tour, we cast our minds back more than 200 years to a time when Sir Thomas Stamford Bingley Raffles of the British East India Company arrived in Singapore, started a British trading post in 1819, became part of the Straits Settlements in 1826, and eventually a separate colony of the British crown some 41 years later. We’ll visit well-preserved structures from the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian eras, and stately neo-classical style buildings, which have all been restored to showcase the splendour of Colonial Singapore. We pay tribute to our former colonial masters who left behind their legacy of careful town planning, sound legal system, good education system, solid infrastructure, impressive architecture, etc, which have certainly played a significant part in the development of modern Singapore. At about midday, we’ll kick back and enjoy lunch by the river at Boat Quay, before we resume our tour.

Our guide, Monica was great. Very knowledgeable and lots of fun. Just the right amount of time at each activity. We loved the National Orchid Garden and the Temple. The Mosque was so grand and loved walking through Kampong Glam area and seeing the old buildings. Value for money

An excellent tour from start to finish made all the better by having our wonderful guide, Ping. Ping was extremely knowledgeable, combining very interesting facts about Singapore's history with personal family experiences. We feel very lucky that Ping was our guide.

Easy and convenient to use. Nice that I didn’t have to worry about getting tickets for everything :)

Incredible! I managed to get ~$684 worth of experiences out of this 3 days pass. Well worth it.

Very nice. We should have included more sights. Paul was so good.
