Colin was amazing and so knowledgeable on everything. I would highly recommend this tour if you want to see all of Singapore especially if you only have a few days.

When we booked this tour, we were expecting simply to get a feel for different flavors of Singapore and we ended up getting so much more. We also got to see the skyline from unfrequented heights, walk less traversed paths, and learned about some of the history of Singapore along the way. Yap absolutely blew our minds in this tour with the entire experience and far exceeded the expectations that we had going in. He was also flexible with us to run a few errands during our excursion. If you only have a few hours in Singapore, why not eat your way thru some of it’s areas and learn new things along the way? If you can request a specific person, Yap will absolutely blow you away (his picture taking skills are fantastic as well)!

This tour was a great way to get introduced to Singapore - I always like to try to do a food/history tour first thing upon arrival in a new city.

The best food tours not only expose you to delicious food, but put in in a context with the history of the city and neighborhoods - and this tour does both. We learned a lot about the cultural make-up of Singapore as well as the history that helped shape the amazing dishes we ate. Our guide was amazing and injected a lot of his own personal experiences of growing up with these dishes.

This is a wonderful experience. Our guide was Bas, he not only provided us with great regional cuisine, but so taught us about the history of Singapore. We covered multiple regions and ethnicities of Singapore including a Hawker’s Center in Chinatown, a large Tekka in Little India and finished off with some great Arabian food. It was a hot day and our guide gave us ple;nay of breaks. You will be full and very satisfied with experience when this tour is done.

Our guide, Yap was wonderful. Food was great as well as insight into the cultural mixing in Singapore. He was very considerate of my slow, cane walking husband and provided us with take out boxes when our tummies were just too full to eat any more. If you are foodie, this is a must do, especially if you are a little shy about hopping into the Hawker experience.

We had a great day on this tour - 6 hours of walking and train and bus getting around Singapore, trying many different local foods, most of which we had never tried before, and they were delicious. Our guide pointed out aspects of the many different cultures and buildings in Singapore, as well as taking us to restaurants and food stalls that we would never have tried on our own. We've been to Singapore before so we wanted to experience something different this time - recommended for sure.
