We had a great tour with Ang. He was very thoughtful of how hot it was and took us around via taxi to various sites. We had lunch together at a delicious hawker center. He had a lot of fun stories to tell in brought the story of Singapore to life for us. As a bonus he thoughtfully had a welcome bag for us and some souvenirs! I would highly recommend him.

We really enjoyed our tour with HJ. He provided some very informative and interesting facts about Singapore. An added highlight was taking us to the top of his apartment block to see the views of Singapore.

It was fantastic walkthrough Singapore with the deep history & insights we have not heard before. Our tour guide Leo knowledgeable, detailed, passionate and treated us with delicious pandan sponge cake, local dessert (something fried and yummy!) & with local touch of a souvenir which was more than we could ask for. Fact he adjusted the tour for our group was a nice touch. Fully recommend Leo as your best tour guide for Singapore.

Rodney was an amazing guide and super flexible when we want to explore different things. For example, he went above and beyond because I wanted to make a dinner reservation at the art gallery and he gave us a little tour there that wasn’t included. Instead of 8 hours we ended up getting 9 hours total and he didn’t even realize how much time has passed. He indeed took us to little gems, such as having croissants in a local place, hidden buildings, street food courts, and many others. He knows the city extremely well and also the history of the country and why it got so quickly from being a third world country to a developed one. Highly recommended

Our tour was with Mr. Ang, who was extremely well prepared in engaging us while teaching about Singapore’s culture and hot spots. He was very well organized, had great energy and his passion for the Singapore made the tour unforgettable. We highly recommend this experience with Mr. Ang.
