Loved our tour so much! We learnt a lot about Singapore’s wonderful multicultural community and the food experiences were really wonderful! James, our guide was knowledgeable, interesting and fun. He tailored our tour to fit our interests perfectly. Loved it!

We had the honor of having a tour with Lou while in Singapore. We wanted to see all of the best Hawkers and Lou gave us a wonderful tour! He knew the ins and outs of the spots and gave us the insight of a local, not only on food, but also on cultural spots we saw while on the tour. I am so happy we made the decision to do the tour and we were paired with Lou. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Singapore and I can’t wait to return!

I had a lot of fun trying out the local dishes with my friends as we learned more about the history of these locations! The tour guide Darius was very knowledgeable and let us in on secret sites. Definitely recommend everyone to try this tour even if you're a tourist or local!

Our guide Anthony was fantastic! We had just one full day to tour Singapore and he delivered! As an amazing cultural ambassador, we learned so much about the history, the people, the architecture, food, and he did a great job tailoring the tour for us. The choice of sights/stops were exceptional, and I thoroughly enjoyed the historical context he provided. The food stops and tailored meal choices were marvelous and delicious! The experience was one I’m sure we will always treasure. Thank you so much Anthony for your expert guidance! Highly recommend Anthony and this tour!

We did the Chinatown tour as part of a recent Staycation. Even though we've been to Chinatown many times in the past it was great to get a different view of it and find out more about the history and background. Our guide, Bas, was very knowledgeable and showed us some great 'hidden secrets' that we will enjoy taking our friends and relatives to when they have the opportunity to visit again. A very worthwhile tour and even though you may live here it's great to put your 'tourist' hat on for a while and see the area from a different angle.
