Great Historical City Overview

The private tour was educational and provided a unique perspective from our local guide, Doris. They met us at the hotel lobby and we were on our way! We toured little India, China Town, Old Parliament and the Botanical Gardens. It was a fairly hot afternoon so we asked Doris where we could go for some refreshments. She took us to a local hangout Madame Ooze. There they had quite an array of unique beverages and ice cream. This place should be on the tour. It's small but the staff are friendly and the offerings are really good. It was great to see thriving neighborhoods with all the little shops and cafes. Doris also had many good recommendations for where to eat and to avoid the tourist traps. The Botanical Gardens are amazing. There is a lot of walking on this tour. Most of it is flat with the exception of the Botanical Gardens where there are some stairs and graded walkways. Overall, we enjoyed this tour and I'm looking forward to exploring all the recommendations our guide gave us!

The half day Singapore city tour was fabulous. Eric our guide was superb. He was extremely knowledge about the city as well as enthusiastic about the local culture. We certainly enjoyed the tour and learnt a lot. The booking experience was good and the overall service was very prompt and professional. I would highly recommend this tour.
Excellent and comprehensive tour

Eric was great--he showed us all the wonderful sights of this beautiful city and gave us suggestions for fun things to do that evening. It is the best way to see Singapore--in an air-conditioned vehicle with stops to walk along the river by the Parliament and National Gallery, Chinatown, Little India, and the beautiful Botanical Orchid Garden. We only had one day in Singapore and felt like we knew the city after this tour.
Private half day tour Singapore and Botanical Garden

Very informative tour guide, Mr TC. Visited Botanical Garden with over1,000 varieties of Orchids and Hybrids. Visited China Town with the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Little India. Walked around Singapore River and learned about the history of Singapore. Mr TC suggested dinner @ ChinaTown and accompanied us to the Hawker Area for a great Chinese Dinner. Thank you Mr TC for a great day!
Great morning with Anthony Sam. Can’t miss experience. Very memorable and fun!

Anthony Sam was a fabulous guide.
The gardens and the jaunt around the city were also of course great for intro to city. For a first day in Singapore this is perfect. Maybe a bit tough to get to orchid gardens without tour, and even if you are not a big flower person this is a garden not to miss.

The rest of the city (Indian area, Chinatown, colonial area) is good to get introduced to and you can visit later, easy.

Most importantly getting to hear about Singapore from a local who is a true ambassador for his country is invaluable as a tourist who wants to get a little insight into where they are visiting.

Highly recommend!
Great experience

Singapore more amazing than expected

The knowledge and story telling skills of my guide, Antony, enriched the trip tremendously. I learnt a lot of interesting facts about Singapore.
The trip was well organized and I felt very comfortable. I would like to repeat this experience if I am ever back in Singapore with some other trip.
Great Introduction

Tour with Anthony was great. Very informative, efficient and well thought out. The half day went by quickly but we were able to get a good introduction of the city and are more familiar with places to go when we want to explore on our own.
Spectacular view!

The orchid garden was beautiful as expected. The guide Anthony was very accommodative and trues to satisfy his customers. An excellent plus point is he’s a good photographer and takes great photos and sends them promptly.
Would not hesitate to use Trip Advisor again

Our guide, Mike, was very friendly and knowledgeable about all of Singapore in addition to the aspects of the tour itinerary.
The 3 hrs were well worth our time and money.
