Booked our tour through WithLocals. Kenny provided us a wonderful educational tour of the history of Singapore. He gave us many insights into the cultural aspects and diversity of the city/state/country. My wife and I would highly recommend him for anyone who is interested in the beauty of his wonderful country. Sadly as in many aspects in life our time was short but we will definitely be back to Singapore in the future and look forward to another tour with Kenny.

It was a great experience to get into Singapure with Kenny. We were at hidden places which we never would found without Kenny. He gives you very detailed historic informations about the city and the country that you can not find in any book or online. Also the recommendations where to eat very local food were great and of course very delicious. To see how the ‘normal’ inhabitants live and eat in Singapore was very astonishing and interesting. We highly recommend Kenny for any visitor who wants to see real Singapore from the inside and not only form the ‘standard’ touristic way of view.

It was so interesting, to visit places af this great town, you normally don't visit as a tourist. We had not problems, even though it was the beginning of Corona pandemie. There were no restrictions and we learned much about politics and discipline in Singapore. Ronnie was a great guide and we had much fun and know now delicious food stalls in the city. Thank you very much for this experience, Ronnie!

We woke up to a beautiful day in Singapore ready to start our tour. If you read any of my travel posts you know that I often hire a private guide to see places from the eyes of a local. For this trip, we booked one in each city. In Singapore, we used With Locals and found Monica. We spent two days exploring the city using secret tunnels, the subway, the bus and walking about 8 miles each day. If you want to truly enjoy this city I highly recommend booking a day or two with Monica. We visited Chinatown, ate Chicken and Rice at Michelin Star Hawker Chan, shopped in Little India for sundresses, had one of Monica's favorite drinks...Chendol at Mubarak Ali Kopitiam (this one is a little more expensive than others but worth it for the amazingly light flavor). We had a chance to try my favorite food Bone Marrow called Toolong at Tash Tish Tosh and made a mess but it sure was delish. It was hot out and we passed a little shop on Arab Street called #Selfie Coffee and we couldn't resist. Day two was another fun adventure through the Colonial District, where we saw the famous Raffles Bar where the Singapore Sling was created. We went through the secret tunnel with the glass library bridge, to the Merlion sculpture. We had the yummiest treat after lunch, the famous Tan's Tutu Coconut Cake at Food Republic, Vivo City. We caught the express monorail at Vivo City out to Sentosa Island where you can find Universal Studios, lovely beaches and delicious gelato. We ended our day at Gardens by the Bay visiting the Super Trees, Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest! You absolutely must go here in both the day time and at night. We actually came back here on our final night of our Southeast Asia Tour to see them at night.

Very knowledgeable of the local culture and history, Kenny helped us discover Singapore in a unique and captivating way. We learned a lot about the city's culture and history thanks to his' great passion for the city. We would highly recommend Kenny! Great experience, Thanks!
