Perfect half day tour to see all the sights and figure out which ones to go back to later. Bus picked us up at our hotel and brought us to the staging place with the larger bus that would take us to the sights. Well worth the time and money as we went back to most of the places later in the week.

Unfortunately the morning of this tour was persistently heavy rain which was no fault of Viator but did affect experience, hence only 4 stars instead of 5. Our guide Christopher was very knowledgable and seemed to be able to answer everyone's questions

The tour bus used had too many seats collapsing back and the stickers on the windows made viewing difficult. Botanic Gardens were the highlight but visit to Little India was a little disappointing with the tea drinking especially poor.

This tour was a good overview of Singapore. however it could have been better. Knowing the weather, it would have been better to go to the Botanic Gardens before the rain came. Instead, we left it too late and missed out because of very predictable torrential rain. As a result, we spent far too long in the very boring Indian quarter of the city. Also, too long was spent at the gardens overlooking Marina Bay Sands. I would have preferred more time driving around the city and surrounds to get a better idea of the city lay out. The guide was very good.

I booked my mom on this trip. She's a senior citizen and hence I thought it would be a good idea for her to take the bus tour and see the city. However, the guide was extremely rude and disrespectful. She would give people 10 mins to see attractions and come back. Ex: for the merlion, the stop is somewhere very far ( notnot merlion Park) and gave them 10 mins to see it and come back. She spent most of the time in little India showing the vegetables!! Also insisted that everyone gets down from the bus saying that they needed to change buses, but that never happened and only caused a lot of inconvenience to my mom. I also spoke to some other guests on this tour and all of them shared similar disappointments. Some of them were so fed up that they left the tour mid way.
