10/10 would recommend for anyone visiting. Do this on your first day to get the map of the city, culture, and all of the best food spots. Leo made our trip and we would recommend this tour to anyone.

Excellent tour. James (the guide) was extremely knowledgeable and very willing to tailor the experience on the fly to maximize enjoyment. This tour is a perfect way to experience a slice of true Singapore, away from the typical tourist stops.

Really great tour, I recommend it to anyone visiting Singapore. Our tour guide Bas was really knowledgable and gave us great insights into Singaporean society, religion, culture and politics. The tour itself was super interesting. We visited the wet market, Hindi temple and toured the streets of Little India. Definitely check it out!

Leo was an absolutely fantastic guide. We had an amazing day exploring Singapore and seeing things we had never done previously when visiting. The range of food was great and there was the stories to match. Thanks for an amazing experience, Leo!!

Good experience, though couldn’t find the tour guide and in the TripAdvisor details stated that they would be wearing a purple shirt. Tour guide was lovely and went far and beyond to help us get and find delicious food.
