Splendour of Colonial Singapore Walking Tour with Lunch

1. 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.

Singapore: Sunset City Tour by Kick Scooter

2. Singapore: Sunset City Tour by Kick Scooter

Explore Merlion Park and Marina Bay at night on a kick scooter. Learn about the city from the same people who opened Singapore's first backpackers' hostel in 2002. Visit iconic spots, such as temples and churches. Watch a light show, see the historic Raffles Hotel, and go to a bustling night market. Hop onto your kick scooter in Little India and head over to Merlion Park and Marina Bay to watch the sunset and admire the city lights illuminating the sky at night. Stop off at different attractions along the way, including the world's only Hindu temple where Buddhists and Taoists also pray. See the first church in Singapore, which dates back to 1835, and the site where Sir Stamford Raffles first landed in 1819, and more. Enjoy free time at Marina Bay to take photos and watch the Spectra Light and Water Show. Thereafter, we continue our journey by kick scooter to Gardens by the Bay to catch the whimsical Garden Rhapsody Show at the Supergrove. We cross the Helix Bridge and see Esplanade Theatres on the Bay (our premier performing arts center). Before we end the evening, we check out a World War 2 memorial, visit the luxurious Raffles Hotel, and a former Red Light District that has been transformed into a busy night market.

Wow, we learned so much and fell in love with Singapore during our upbeat tour of the historic Civic District with knowledgeable and passionate Ping. Her love for Singapore was contagious and she intrigued us with personal family stories to complement historic events. We also enjoyed learning about Singapore’s green initiatives and how they problem solve as any issues arise. We also really appreciated that she took photos of all the highlights from the tour as well as us so we were free to be in the moment rather than behind a phone screen. The photos she took and shared were perfect to capture everything we experienced.

Ping is a competent, friendly, open minded and very nice guide! I recommend this and other tours of her without objections. If you want to learn interesting and rather unknown facts about Singapore, know what kind of food is really worth trying (spoiler: EVERYTHING!), or just immerse into that incredible city and her ethnic quarters, then you should give it a try and book a tour with her, you'll certainly not be disappointed!

Initially I was not sure whether a 3.5 h walking tour in Singapore will be a good idea, but several stops in air conditioned buildings were included it was not a problem at all. The guide spoke very well English, had very profound knowledge about the city and its history and provided lot of interesting facts and stories. All in all the tour is highly recommended and was the best tourist attraction I book during my stay!

Ping was an excellent guide. She provided superb background to each of the places visited, and had curated her itinerary to include some lesser known corners of this district. Her historical review included some very personal perspectives, which added to the authenticity. Our group of 5 were given a truly informative tour. A superb experience, and with a relaxed waterside lunch included. Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed this tour, cruising around on a kick scooter was alot of fun exploring the city area of Singapore. My guide Ping is very passionate, knowledgeable and has creative photography skills. Thank you for capturing wonderful shots of my experience. I highly reccomend this tour.
