Our guide Jon met us as arranged and shared with us stories of Singapore from the original inhabitants to the Chinese migration and the Malay and Indian inhabitants. We tried the Chinese jerky and had wonderful satay at the hawkers market. After a quick train trip to Marina Bay Sands we enjoyed the light show and took some more pictures at the prime viewing spots! Jon also recommended some must do things and some must eat foods before directing us to the MTR to wend our way back to our hotel!

Good communication before the tour, followed by a great personalised tour with lots of interesting local info and experiences. Loved it! Thank you!!!

While it was an amazing museum it would be good to know it is very child oriented. So if going without a child you might not enjoy as much

Good fun way to explore the city. Gives you a good overview

Excellent tour.a must for any traveller to Singapore.
